XFL announces their rules

All right, guys. The XFL has finally announced their official rules. And there are some surprises.

As we had heard already, there will be no fair catches. But in addition, any punt traveling more than 25 yards past the line of scrimmage is a live ball.

Also (get this), there will be NO kicking for the extra point after a touchdown! Instead, the scoring team must run a play from the 2-yard line, and they'll receive one extra point if they reach the endzone.

And, they will be using the overtime rules that college football now uses. Thank God!

There are other rules, but rather than post them all here, I'll just let you check out the XFL's official site:
