The XFL likely had plans to make sure they didn’t go belly-up like the Alliance of American Football League with new and innovative ideas that differ from the NFL.
Earlier this week, XFL commissioner Oliver Luck told PFT PM podcast that the league plans to use a three-tiered extra-point system after touchdowns and a two-point conversion shootout in overtime when it launches in 2020.
“On extra points, teams can choose whether to go for a one-point conversion from the 2-yard line, a two-point try from the 5-yard line or a three-point attempt from the 10-yard line.
“We literally have a nine-point touchdown. We think that’s valuable because teams that historically are down by let’s say three scores, well guess what, if it’s a 16-point or a 17-point differential, you’re really looking at a two-score game theoretically,” he said.
The XFL’s overtime rules are currently being tested in the Spring League. Luck said each team will have five opportunities to convert a two-point conversion in the overtime session. The defense would score one point with a turnover.
Forty-four players will be on the field at the same time in the overtime session, with both team’s offenses and defenses on opposite ends of the field.”
Luck also stated he wants games in the XFL tohave a 3-hour time limit as well.
