A little behind the scenes from Sunday's game at The Dome.
XFL commissioner Oliver Luck was making the rounds, and member of the security staff said to him to remind him, in good nature, that St. Louis was exactly that, the crown jewel.
The commissioner side of him said he wished it was a closer game.
But he agreed.
I don't think the XFL has to worry, at all, about attendance and fan excitement in St. Louis
What St. Louis fans will and should worry about is the attendance and fan excitement in other XFL cities.
The good news is attendance doesn't seem to matter nearly as much as TV ratings, and the XFL has good TV contracts.
If people start tuning out on TV, the league could be in trouble.
So far, so good, but there is power in being new. Staying power is yet to be determined. St. Louis won't be enough to save the XFL if other cities don't stick with it.
