Welcome to the XFL online home. The XFL, the defunct winter/spring football league from 2001, playing just one season. Heisman Trophy winners and future NFL starters brought credibility to league along with coaches. The XFL also was breeding ground for future coaching jobs and NFL starters. This site opened up in the winter of 2002. The purpose for this site is allow fans to remember this great league which folded only after one year due media negativity, NBC backing out, and amount of money lost.
This is Ed Smith, former Birmingham Thunderbolt. This email is meant as a simple thanks to all responsible for this site. There was so much negativity surrounding the XFL and I never understood where it all came from. I played four seasons in the NFL, nine years of minor league baseball before that and had more fun in 2001 than almost any other year of my professional sports career. The XFL experience was so special to me because of the supporting fans and that was a great way to end my career.
Awesome site…San Francisco Demons #71 (Hell Hole)…through 10 years in the NFL and being in the initial World League, the XFL was the most fun I had as a pro…cool that people still remember…Thanks
