I think the logos are actually kind of cool looking, but those team names are pretty atrocious. It reminds me of a NES football game from back in the day that didn't have the NFL license, so it was just filled with generic fake teams.

This is exactly what I was thinking when I heard the names. The only thing that makes it a little different, the colors don't match the team of the respective city.

I think the logos are well-designed aesthetically but for the most part boring, generic, and have little to do with the cities they represent. They all look like they could be Arena League teams.

The only one that seems to have any connotation to the city is the Houston team because of the H in the oil rig, with the same colors as the Houston Texans. MAYBE the New York one, if that lion head is supposed to be a gargoyle.

If anything the old XFL logos - while also having little to do with their respective cities, at least had more originality and personality.

Also, having been the previous and only XFL Champion, the LA Xtreme got hosed.

It was that good, it was worth posting twice.
