Coach Criner's 4th down decision XFL names first All-League team STAMFORD, CONN. - The XFL today named its first All-League Team as voted by players and coaches at the conclusion of the regular season. The All-XFL Team is made up of 24 players, 11 each from offense and defense, one kicker and one special teams addition. The XFL completed its first season last Saturday, with the Los Angeles Xtreme defeating the San Francisco Demons, 38-6, in the league's championship, "The Million Dollar Game." Ironically, the league champion Xtreme placed only two players on the All-League Team while the Demons had only one. “Voting was based on the regular season only,” said Mike Keller, the XFL’s Vice President of Football Operations. “The guys who were selected all had outstanding seasons and were recognized for that by their peers.” The first-ever All-XFL Team: POS PLAYER TEAM QB Jeff Brohm Orlando RB John Avery Chicago RB Rod Smart Las Vegas WR Jeremaine Copeland Los Angeles WR Stepfret Williams Birmingham TE Rickey Brady Las Vegas OT Chris Perez Chicago OT Lonnie Palelei Las Vegas C Mike Sheldon Memphis OG Glenn Rountree Memphis OG Jason Gamble Orlando K Jose Cortez Los Angeles DE Shante Carver Memphis DE Kelvin Kinney Las Vegas DT Chris Maumalanga New York/ New Jersey DT Angel Rubio Las Vegas LB Joseph Tuipala Las Vegas LB James Burgess Orlando LB James Willis Birmingham CB Corey Ivy Chicago CB Damen Wheeler New York/New Jersey S Brandon Sanders Las Vegas S Brad Trout New York/New Jersey ST Jimmy Cunningham San Francisco TEAM-BY-TEAM BREAKDOWN: (24 players total) Las Vegas: 7 Orlando: 3 Chicago: 3 Memphis: 3 New York/New Jersey: 3 Birmingham: 2 Los Angeles: 2 San Francisco: 1 XFL All-League Offensive Players QB -- Jeff Brohm -- Orlando Rage -- 6'1" -- 205 lbs. The XFL's top-rated passer with 99.3 rating, he led Rage to 6-0 start, the league's longest winning streak. Brohm had excellent touchdown-to-interception ratio (9 touchdowns, 3 interceptions, before his season ended prematurely with a shoulder separation against Los Angeles in Week 7. Orlando was 6-1 with Brohm as starter, 2-3 without him. RB -- Rod Smart -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 5'9" -- 185 lbs. "HE HATE ME" emerged from a slow start (89 yards in three games) to finish third overall among XFL rushing leaders (555 yards). Smart's trio of 100-yard games came against the respected Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco defenses. Smart's versatility was exhibited each week with his growing reputation as a receiving threat out of the backfield, as the former Western Kentucky All-American caught a team-high 27 balls. RB -- John Avery -- Chicago Enforcers -- 5’9” -- 190 lbs. The XFL’s leading rusher with 800 yards, he helped lead the Enforcers to the XFL Playoffs. He averaged a league-best 5.3 yards per carry and scored seven TDs, which was 2nd in the XFL. He also had the two best single-game marks of 180 yards vs. Birmingham in week 8 and 157 yards against Orlando in week one, when he earned Player of the Week honors. WR -- Jeremaine Copeland -- Los Angeles Xtreme -- 6'1" -- 200 lbs. Led the XFL in receptions with 67, 16 more than any other receiver. Also finished regular season third in total receiving yards (755) and tied for fourth in receiving touchdowns (5). Came through for Xtreme in the playoffs as well, making eight catches for an XFL-best 122 yards and two touchdowns. WR -- Stepfret Williams -- Birmingham Thunderbolts -- 6'1" -- 170 Stepfret Williams led the XFL in receiving yards with 828 and was second in the league with 51 receptions. A 16.2 yards per catch average was also among league leaders. His 95-yard punt return for a touchdown against NY/NJ is the current XFL record. TE -- Rickey Brady -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 6'4" -- 225 lbs. One of only two players to catch three TDs in one game (3/24 @ Los Angeles), Brady led the Outlaws with five TD catches on the season. Although he was a forgotten receiver during much of Las Vegas' QB shuffle, Brady consistently shut down opposing defenders at the point of attack and led the way for Rod Smart and the other running backs. OT -- Christopher Perez -- Chicago Enforcers -- 6’5” -- 280 lbs. The veteran tackle held together an offensive line that battled injuries all season long. Anchored an offensive line that produced the league's best rushing attack and blocked for the XFL’s No. 1 rusher. OG -- Jason Gamble -- Orlando Rage -- 6'3" -- 307 lbs. A versatile lineman, he started all 10 regular season games and both playoff contests for the Rage. His main position was left guard, but he also played tackle and center when needed. OT -- Lonnie Palelei -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 6'6" -- 290 lbs. This former UNLV star returned to Las Vegas after five NFL seasons to anchor the Outlaws' offensive line, as Palelei was the only Las Vegas lineman to start all 10 regular-season contests. Consistently battling the XFL's top defensive ends, Palelei also served as the offensive leader of the team and was a jovial locker room presence. C -- Mike Sheldon -- Memphis Maniax -- 6'4" -- 305 lbs. Sheldon started all 10 games at center for the Maniax and anchored the offensive line of the XFL’s top-ranked offense. The Maniax finished second in the league in rushing offense and tied for third in passing offense. With Sheldon leading the way, the Memphis line helped the club produce the only offense to average better than 300 yards per game. OG -- Glenn Rountree -- Memphis Maniax -- 6-3 -- 302 lbs. Rountree started all 10 games at left guard and provided stability on the offensive line of the XFL’s No-1 ranked offense. The Maniax were the only team to average more than 300 yards of total offense per game and ranked second in rushing and third (tied) in passing. XFL All-League Defensive Players DE - Shante Carver-- Memphis Maniax - 6'5" -- 265 lbs. Carver was one of the most dominating defensive players in the XFL. He led the Maniax with four sacks. His crushing hit on Orlando quarterback Jeff Brohm on March 4 was voted by XFL fans on XFL.com as the league’s “Hit of the Year.” DE -- Kelvin Kinney -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 6'6" -- 285 lbs. "K2" led the XFL in sacks from start to finish and provided many of the league's most humorous moments with his unique brand of jawing with both opponents and teammates. Finishing the season with 10 sacks, Kinney joined S Brandon Sanders as the voice of the Outlaws' feared "Dealers of Doom" defense. DT -- Angel Rubio -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 6'5" -- 320 lbs. DT Angel Rubio teamed with DT Carl Simpson, DE Antonio Edwards and fellow All-XFL DE Kelvin Kinney to limit opposing offenses to just 65.5 yards rushing per game, the fewest in the league. Rubio also consistently came up with key fumble recoveries, forced fumbles, tackles for loss and sacks to serve as the heart and soul of the "Dealers of Doom." DT -- Christian Maumalanga -- New York/New Jersey Hitmen -- 6'3" -- 320 lbs. The versatile Maumalanga was both a run-stopping force and a solid pass rusher for the XFL’s second-rated defense, recording 37 tackles (27 solo) and finishing second on the team with four sacks. He set an XFL record for most sacks in a game with three against Chicago in the Hitmen’s first win. LB -- James Burgess -- Orlando Rage -- 5'11" -- 235 lbs. Orlando's leading tackler with 57 total stops, he led the Rage in tackles-for-loss, with 11 stops behind the line of scrimmage, including 3.5 quarterback sacks and was also credited with one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He was forced out of playoff game with San Francisco with broken ribs in second quarter, but returned to play the final defensive series. Burgess had season-high 10 stops against San Francisco in Week Two. LB -- Joseph Tuipala -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 6'1" -- 225 lbs. "Samoan Light" led the Outlaws' top-rated defense with 43 tackles and simply stunned opponents with his consistently outstanding play. Learning alongside two-time Super Bowl Champion Kurt Gouveia, Tuipala served notice on a weekly basis that the Outlaws defense could shift into a higher gear whenever necessary. LB -- James Willis -- Birmingham Thunderbolts -- 6'2" -- 250 lbs. The leading tackler in the XFL, Willis finished the season with 70 stops. Included in his final tackle totals were 10 tackles for loss. He also broke up six passes and recovered a fumble on the way to being voted by XFL fans as the XFL.COM defensive player of the year. CB -- Damen Wheeler -- New York/New Jersey Hitmen -- 5'9" -- 185 lbs. The ball-hawking Wheeler often drew his coverage assignment on the opponent’s best receiver, finishing with three interceptions and 13 passes defended while anchoring the XFL’s top-ranked passing defense. Despite his size, "Wheels" was a sure tackler, recording 42 stops (39 solo), third best on the Hitmen. DB -- Corey Ivy -- Chicago Enforcers -- 5’8” -- 182 lbs. Ivy led the XFL in interceptions with five and had two picks in week eight against Birmingham, when he was named XFL Defensive Player of the Week. He added 24 tackles from his corner back position and also became the Enforcers’ kick returner and finished the year averaging 21.2 yards per kickoff return. FS -- Brad Trout -- New York/New Jersey Hitmen -- 6'1" -- 220 lbs. The hard-hitting Trout notched 47 tackles (41 solo) to accompany a pair of sacks, an interception, three passes defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovered on the season. He earned XFL Defensive Player of the Week accolades in Week Six, keying the Hitmen defense in a 20-12 win at San Francisco’s “Hell Hole.” S -- Brandon Sanders -- Las Vegas Outlaws -- 5'10" -- 205 lbs. Known league-wide as "B. Mack," Sanders pulled out of the gates early with four INTs in the first five weeks, ultimately finishing second in the XFL in that defensive category. Sanders earned a reputation as a heavy hitter and an even louder trash-talker, patrolling the defensive backfield with unbridled enthusiasm. Special Teams Jimmy Cunningham -- San Francisco Demons -- 5'8" -- 165 lbs Considered by some to be the Demons’ most valuable player. Paced the team in receiving, scoring and return yardage. Returned the 11th kick of his professional career for a touchdown by zipping 63 yards with a New York/New Jersey punt. Including two post-season games, grabbed 59 passes for 526 yards and averaged 13.4 yards on 20 punt returns. Finished with 948 all-purpose yards. K -- Jose Cortez -- Los Angeles Xtreme -- 5'11" -- 205 lbs. Shook off a slow start to establish himself as the most dependable kicker in the league. Led the XFL in field goals made (20), field goal accuracy (80) and points (60). Enjoyed run where he made 17 of 18 attempts, including streaks of nine straight and eight straight field goals made. Topped year off with four field goals in "The Million Dollar Game," including his season-longest from 50 yards. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE XFL PRIMER: THE LEAGUE WHAT IS THE XFL? The XFL is a new football league which is jointly owned and operated by World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc. and NBC. The XFL will be 100 percent competitive sport – the brand of football that hardcore football fans haven’t seen in a long time, and the brand of football that new fans have never seen before. The league will connect with fans by returning football to its roots, including fostering a wide-open style of play and faster-paced action while encouraging player individuality to emerge. WHAT DOES XFL STAND FOR? The letters XFL are not an abbreviation. The name of the league IS NOT the Xtreme Football League. WHEN WAS THE XFL FORMED? The XFL was first announced by XFL founder Vince McMahon on February 3, 2000, at a press conference at the WWF New York entertainment complex in New York City’s Times Square. NBC became a partner on March 29, 2000. CAN I CONTACT THE XFL? The XFL always welcomes fan feedback. Please feel free to e-mail any comments you may have to Comments@XFL.com. CAN I WORK FOR THE XFL?

Each of the league’s eight teams will play a 10-game regular season. There are no bye weeks. Two games will be on Saturday night, one on Sunday afternoon and one on Sunday night. The top two teams in each division advance to the postseason, with playoff games taking place the weekend of April 14-15. The inaugural XFL Championship Game, affectionately called “The Big Game At The End,” will be played on Saturday, April 21. WHO ARE THE XFL TEAMS? The XFL has eight teams divided into two, four-team divisions. The Eastern division includes the Birmingham Thunderbolts, Chicago Enforcers, New York/New Jersey Hitmen and Orlando Rage. The Western Division includes the Las Vegas Outlaws, Los Angeles Xtreme, Memphis Maniax and San Francisco Demons. DESCRIBE THE XFL LEAGUE AND TEAM ADMINISTRATION. The XFL is a single-entity sports league in which the XFL owns and operates each of its eight teams. League headquarters is located in Stamford, Conn. The league’s chief executive is President Basil V. DeVito, Jr. Mike Keller is Vice President of Football Operations and Billy Hicks is Vice President of Administration. Each XFL team is headed by a general manager and includes both football operations and administrative staff. WHO ARE THE XFL PLAYERS? Each XFL team will consist of a 38-man active roster and a 7-man reserve squad. XFL players are experienced pro football players whose backgrounds include the NFL, NFL Europe, the Arena Football League and the CFL. Most played for major collegiate programs. All XFL players have completed their collegiate eligibility. XFL players cannot be under contract with another league. HOW WERE THE XFL TEAMS ASSEMBLED? XFL teams were first assembled in October 2000 via a two-phase Player Allocation Selection System or draft. In the first phase, teams were able to select up to 11 “territorial” players from three assigned universities. In the second, or open phase, teams brought their rosters to a maximum of 70 by drafting players from a central league talent pool. Teams were then able to alter their rosters via free agent signings and trades as well as through a supplemental draft held at the end of December. When preseason training camps began the first week of January, team rosters stood at 70 players. Through a series of cuts, teams will trim down to 45 players by opening day. HOW WILL THE PLAYERS BE COMPENSATED? In the XFL, players are paid to play, but are paid more to win. XFL base salaries for most players are $45,000 for the 10-game regular season. Quarterbacks are paid slightly more ($50,000) and kicking specialist slightly less ($35,000). In addition, each regular- season game will feature a $100,000 bonus pool to be divided equally by players on the winning team. The bonus pool for “The Big Game At The End” will be $1 million. WHO ARE THE XFL COACHES? The eight XFL head coaches bring 78 years of head-coaching experience, having guided teams in the NFL, at NCAA Division I powerhouses, in NFL Europe and in the Arena Football League. Entering the league’s inaugural season, XFL head coaches had already combined for 516 wins, 11 national or world championships and 14 Coach of the Year honors. WHAT ARE THE XFL’S BROADCAST PLANS? The XFL launches its inaugural season with three major national television networks as partners. NBC will carry a live prime time game every Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. (ET) with Matt Vasgersian handling play-by-play and Jesse Ventura as analyst. UPN will air a live game every Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. (ET). TNN will telecast an XFL game live for nine consecutive Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. (ET) beginning February 11, 2001.

There will be no restrictions on broadcaster commentary and indeed, broadcasters will be encouraged to deliver hard-hitting analysis. WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL WITH XFL CHEERLEADERS? Yes, the XFL has cheerleaders and isn’t afraid to let people know it. Indeed, XFL cheerleaders will play an integral role at games, both live and on television, and fans will get to know their names and personalities. DOES THE XFL HAVE A WEBSITE? In addition to announcing the formation of the league on February 3, 2000, the XFL also launched its official Web site – XFL.com, that very day. XFL.com has played a significant role in the teams’ marketing efforts including enabling fans to register for “priority” status for ticket purchasing and other perks. In addition, XFL.com launched its XFL e-commerce site in December, 2000, with official league merchandise for sale online. XFL.com has also been a resource for league employment as more than 40,000 people applied for league and team jobs via XFL.com in 2000, and 50,000 people applied to become players.

(NYSE:WWF) in conjunction with its joint venture partner, NBC, today announced that it will discontinue its professional football league, the XFL. The decision was made after determining that the additional investment required to further develop the XFL was not commensurate with the potential return and the risk inherent in pursuing the venture. “While we believe that it is an extraordinary accomplishment to have created a new professional football league in what amounts to less than a year’s time, we feel that it is in the best interests of our shareholders and our partners to discontinue the XFL,” said Vince McMahon, WWFE Chairman. “I would personally like to thank the employees of the XFL and WWFE, the XFL fans, our partner NBC and especially Dick Ebersol and his team for their perseverance, support and enthusiasm that did not waiver throughout the season. We are all proud of the creative innovations that we introduced in the production of the game as well as in the rule changes that were implemented to increase the excitement and enjoyment of the game and provide a fan-friendly brand of football.” Dick Ebersol, Chairman, NBC Sports and Olympics, commented, “Launching a new football league in such a short period of time was a daunting and exciting challenge, but we gave it our best shot in what clearly is a difficult and challenging sports marketplace. I especially want to salute our partners at the WWF, the fans, players and coaches who created a fun and entertaining XFL in-stadium experience.” WWFE will report the operations and related costs of discontinuance of the XFL as discontinued operations in its fourth quarter results for the period ended April 30, 2001. The company anticipates that its share of the after-tax cash losses will be approximately $35 million. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WWF loses $36 million on XFL Jun. 28, 2001. 03:51 PM STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Inc.'s disastrous XFL venture forced a fourth-quarter loss of $20.4 million and cut full-year profits in 2001 to about a third of the previous year's earnings. WWF, which took an after-tax charge of $36.2 million on the football league's failure, reported a loss of $20.4 million, or 28 cents per share, for the quarter ended April 30. That compares with pro forma profit of $9.4 million, or 14 cents per share, for the same quarter a year ago. ``We rolled the dice on XFL and it didn't work out quite as we expected it would,'' said Judd Everhart, a WWF spokesperson. The XFL, a joint venture with NBC, folded after one season in which television viewership plummeted steadily. For the full fiscal year, WWF reported a profit of about $16 million, or 22 cents per share. That's roughly 36 per cent of pro forma earnings in 2000, which totaled $44.6 million, or 71 cents per share. Fourth-quarter revenues were $131 million, up 13 per cent from $116 million for the same quarter a year ago. Revenue for the full year was $456 million, up from $379 million for the prior fiscal year. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- XFL TIMELINE Feb. 3, 2000 -- WWF Entertainment chairman of the board Vince McMahon announces the formation of the XFL.

Instead, a chosen member of each team will dash to the center of the field starting from 15 yards away. The first one to reach the ball, and maintain possession gets to choose whether they want to receive the ball or kick-off. No Fair Catches There will no fair catches on all punts. To protect the punt returners, members of the kicking team must stay five yards away from the returner until the ball is caught, or else there will be a penalty. Punts of more than 25 yards will be a live ball, recoverable by either team. Play Clock Unlike the CFL and the NFL where the play clock is 20 seconds and 40 seconds respectively, the XFL league will utilize a 35 second play clock between plays when the clock has been stopped. Teams will get 25 seconds to prepare themselves when there is no stoppage in time. Quarterback Rules XFL quarterbacks will be down if they slide, and cannot be hit afterwards. Otherwise the quarterback is free to be hit unless he throws the ball away in time. A quarterback is deemed down when his forward progress is stopped, thus there is no "in-the-grasp" rule. Head slaps are stated illegal in the XFL. Offence/Defence Offensively, one player may be in forward motion outside of the tackles. The XFL returned to the good old days of pass defense as defensive backs will be able to employ the "bump and run" all the way down the field. Later, the league eliminated the "bump and run" rule beginning with week 5. Defensive players will only be allowed to bump offensive players within five yards of the line of scrimmage. One Foot Inbounds Just like in College football rules, the XFL will require that a receiver or defender need only one foot inbounds to make a reception or interception. If after catching the football with one foot inbounds the player is still inbounds, he can continue heading downfield towards the endzone. Punting/Returning Players from the kicking team will not be able leave the line of scrimmage until the ball is kicked. The returning teams must run kickoffs back out of the end zone, unless the kick carries through the end zone. Along with the No Fair Catch rule, there are no touchbacks. If the ball is punted out of bounds a 10 yard penalty is given out. Point After After a touchdown, teams need to pass or run into the endzone from the one for the extra point. If there is a fumble or interception, the defending team can return the ball to the opposite endzone for a one point of its own. On April 4, 2001, the league has modified its point after touchdown rule. Beginning in the playoffs, teams can go for two points at the five-yard line, or for three at the 10-yard line. Under the new rule, should the defensive team return a turnover for a score it will receive the number of points the offense would have received. Overtime EACH TEAM WILL GET THE BALL AT LEAST ONCE: Each team will have four downs from the opponent's 20-yard line. Team A may not attempt a field goal until fourth down. If Team A scores a touchdown in less than four downs then team B must score in the same number of downs. There will be PAT attempts. THE BREAKDOWN: A. Each team will have a possession Exception: Team B intercepts a pass or fumble and returns it for a score. Game over. B. Ball will be placed on the 20-yard line. No 1st down possible. C. Team A cannot attempt a field goal until 4th down. D. If a touchdown is scored by the first team in overtime on either 1st , 2nd , 3rd , or 4th down the team on defense must match the down and the score or be declared the loser. E. If no touchdown was scored by the first team in overtime, the defense can waive the first three downs and choose a fourth down to attempt a field goal to win the game. F. PAT attempts will be from the 2-yard line. G. The defense can return an interception or a fumble for a score. A scrimmage down returned for a touchdown = 6 points. A returned PAT = 1 point. H. If you score a touchdown and on the try Team B intercepts and returns it for a score, they get one point and the ball on the 20-yard line for a chance to win. Exception: When the team that was on defense first has a PAT returned for a score after the original offensive team had already scored. Example: Team A scores a TD = 6 points but misses the PAT. Team B scores a TD = 6 points. On their PAT, Team A intercepts a pass and returns it for a 1-point score. Team A wins 7-6. I. If neither team scores or both teams score the same number of points overtime will continue until a winner is declared. The team on defense during the first overtime will be on offense for the second overtime. XFL 2001 Tie-Breaker System 1) Head-to-head record versus all other teams finishing with the same record in the division. 2) Best won-loss record in games played within the division. 3) Best net points in division games 4) Best net points in all games 5) Greater point differential in head-to-head games 6) Best net touchdowns in all games 7) Coin toss NOTE: If two or more clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any other step, tiebreaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format.
