Tuesday March 11, 2003: A recycling of this site's appearance has taken place. Fresh team logos and this site's layout are just two of the improvements made to XFLROCKS! The first installment of Virtual Commish officially debuts today. I'm rather excited about this as this site will get a much needed fire under its butt because of it. You could say it's a "sim" thing, but done a little different. Find out for yourself...



Monday March 10, 2003: There are other sites out there that get the official XFLROCKS! "thumbs up".


Check out this excellent "sim" site where you can tell this individual "gets it". The "it" meaning where the XFL more than likely would be at right now. xfllives

Wednesday March 5, 2003: First BMS Rant since 7/6/01. BMS gets real in his first column in a year and a half, expressing that the XFLROCKS site is definitely "on" again.



Sunday July 8, 2001: Former Orlando Rage WR Kevin Swayne gets his name in the Arena Football League record book with the New York Dragons. The Dragons and Carolina Cobras participated in the highest scoring game in Arena Football League history on this date.



What does the future hold for this site? There will be believe it or not, more commentary. I may not reinvent the wheel, but I look forward to continuing my cutting-edge approach to a retrospective site. Check out a new BMS XFL rant posted on Friday July 6, 2001. Any comments:xflrocks@lycos.com




This site will now become a tribute/retrospective site...

Even though this league lasted one year, there is much to revel in. This league, in retrospect, will be looked at as innovative in the years to come. This site will be a reference point to refresh your memory and introduce people who missed out to what the XFL was and could've been.
