You'd rather you not watch a "sport" in which one of the effective strategies of winning involves attrition of the opposition?
You'd rather not be associated with a tribal or mob mentality in which only a particular billionaire wins?
You'd rather not spend 4 hours watching 14 minutes of action?

These are all valid reasons.

Wondering what the "break-even" is.

Also, I'd like to know the specifics of the XFL TV contract.

If it's like the last XFL, low ratings meant low revenue for the league, which put them out of business.

The quality of the play is much better this time than in the first XFL. Well, maybe not, I only watched part of one game in the first XFL and found it so awful I had to turn it off. These games have been watchable, imo.

Or maybe I'm just a football junkie.

Not knowing what rules are different would drive me crazy - plus with no rooting interest
