Last week, World Wrestling Entertainment’s Vince McMahon announced the XFL will return.  What kind of cutting-edge innovations can fans expect from the new league?  Sports comedian Jeff Wozer has some ideas.

• Fifteen yard penalty for hitting a quarterback with a folding chair.

• Two points for any player who tackles using the airplane spin.

• Bicuspid Cam.

• Each team must have at least one out-of-control player from, or allegedly from, Samoa.

• Cheerleader cat fights.

• Backup players can’t enter game until tagging the hand of the injured player they’re replacing.

• Announcers must refer to rain during games as “Gorilla Monsoons.”

• Pay-per-view inside sideline medical examination tents.

• The Royal Fumble – all 8 teams play on the same field at the same time.

• Touchdowns missed by referees distracted by staged brawls cannot be reviewed.

Jeff also wondered how it would be different if Jon Bon Jovi had actually bought the Bills.
