I'm going to go ahead and be that person: 

If you're going to play football on a soccer field(which you shouldnt), then you should do as BMO does and only paint the lines on the field. All ads/logos be virtual for the broadcast.

 

BC Place in Vancouver does the same.  No adds on field or logos in end zones during BC Lions games.

Enlighten me... why?

The XFL is not being paid for TV broadcasts. Those on field ads are an income source which benefit the league. I have no issue with it. 
 

The attendance for the DC game was announced as 17,000-ish.

Transparent reviews are AWESOME IDEA. If the NFL were to adopt this, it would go a long way towards combating conspiracy theories. I’d actually get to hear how there was no clear fumble recovery in the Eagles Dallas game two years ago. My guess is that the Eagles would have gotten the ball if the discussion was broadcast live.

I don't see the NFL adopting the "sideline reporters interviewing coaches and players during the game" as the XFL has because I just can't picture Tracy Wolfson or Michelle Tafoya trying to interview Belichick on the sidelines after a Patriots drive.  

 

I'd like to see them try.

This far into the second game, I prefer the ESPN/ABC presentation of the game, with that being said the Fox sideline reporters are much better than who ESPN used.

For a stadium like Audi Field, which seats only 20,000, that is excellent.

I'm curious on how much of the audience left after the 1st Half when the promised more scoring did not happen.

DC fans must be so happy to have a team that actually knows how to play football. 😄

 

yep.  Besides, Dan Snyder is going to find a way to nudge into Ron Rivera's plans despite Rivera's plans to change culture.

He can’t not mettle. Especially if there is a free agent or draft pick he can sign on is own because they have Jersey money potential.

Gotta say, low-key, interesting that there's a zebra whose sole purpose is spotting the ball.  If there's something I can see either the NFL or NCAA adopting, it might be this.

So far the neo-Bucco Bruces are beating the neo-Oilers by 5. Seriously, I love LA's road uniforms. 

 

EDIT: And a few seconds after posting this, Houston scores on a huge touchdown pass.
