NFL-XFL agreement to give NFL a 'petri dish' to experiment with proposed rule changes

Feb 21, 2022

The NFL-XFL agreement will give the NFL a “petri dish” to experiment with proposed rules, test new equipment and develop prospective officials and coaches, XFL president Russ Brandon told ESPN.

"The whole idea about the XFL-NFL collaboration is to grow the game of football," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, an XFL owner, said Monday morning on Twitter. "What a force to be reckoned with: the XFL and the NFL."
