Sanders doesn't think Bloomberg should be in next debates

  Sanders doesn't think Bloomberg should be in next debates Sanders has been critical of Bloomberg using his wealth to run for president since he entered the race. When asked to respond to a recent Quinnipiac University poll with black voters that put Bloomberg and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of him, Sanders expressed confidence in his support from minority communities."I don't know what the most recent poll has, but we are doing very, very well with minority communities, both African-American and Latino," he said. "A lot of politicians go from the top on down. That's what Bloomberg is about. He's spending hundreds of millions of dollars.

In theory, the rule could lead to XFL offenses featuring more “slash” players, players who can play multiple positions, including quarterback. Think Taysom Hill of the NFL ’s Saints, Trace McSorley of the Ravens or Nick Fitzgerald of the Bucs. Fitzgerald actually drew interest from the XFL before he


The 2020 XFL season will begin this weekend, and if you’re planning on tuning in to get your football fix during the NFL offseason, you may be a little confused by the league’s new rules. The XFL has made several major rule changes in an attempt to reduce overall game times and produce more highlight-reel plays.

Here’s a primer on all the major rule changes and differences from standard NFL rules.

SCORING RULES:

September rosters will allow for 28 players as opposed to the previous 40-man rule.Teams will be allowed to designate specific "two-way" players, who both pitch and play a position/act as the designated hitter.

The XFL will deploy different rules , and forms of gameplay that are quite a bit different from NFL rules and game play situations including changes to the Kickoff, Punts, Overtime, Extra Points, Double Forward Passes That’s Good Sports breaks down the football difference between the NFL & XFL .

The XFL is a professional American football league owned by Vince McMahon's Alpha Entertainment, and is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut.

In the XFL, there are no kicked extra points after touchdowns. Instead, teams will have an option to run a play to score either 1, 2 or 3 extra points, creating the possibility for a 9-point touchdown. A 1-point try will be run from the 2-yard line. A 2-point try will start at the 5-yard line, and a 3-point try will start at the 10-yard line.

GAME RULES:

Double-forward passes

Unlike in the NFL, the XFL will allow two forward passes on a play, provided that the first forward pass is caught behind the line of scrimmage.

What is a catch?

In the XFL, receivers only need to have one foot – or any other part of their body – contact the ground in bounds, instead of two feet in the NFL. Here is how the league defines what a catch is:

Secures control of a live ball in flight before the ball touches the ground. Touches the ground in bounds with any part of his body, and then Maintains control of the ball long enough to enable him to perform an act common to the game, i.e., long enough to pitch or hand the ball, advance it, avoid or ward off an opponent, etc.

What Are The Differences Between The Jerseys Of The XFL Players Compared To The Jerseys Of The NFL Players & How Has It Impacted The World Of Pro Below are the main differences between the XFL and the NFL : 1. The opening coin toss rule of the NFL was replaced with a “scramble” where

The new XFL will be familiar in many ways. Same field, same positions on offense and defense, 4 downs to move the ball. It’s football , pure and simple. But Oliver Luck and his team have been hard at work finding ways to refine the game. The stated goal is to create a faster paced league .

The XFL designed its kicking rules in a way to increase the amount of returns we see compared to the NFL, and to make returns safer.  Kickoffs are going to look very different.

On a kickoff, the kicker will kick the ball from their own 30-yard line, but every blocker will be lined up on the opposing team’s 35-yard line. The return team blockers will be lined up at their own 30, just five yards away.

Only the kicker and receiver can move before the ball is caught. All other blockers are permitted to move when the ball is caught, or three seconds after it hits the ground, if the ball isn’t caught.

Kicks that fly out of bounds, or kicks that fall short of the opposing 20-yard line, will result in the receiving team taking the ball at their own 45-yard line.

Touchbacks will result in the receiving team starting at their own 35-yard line.

Teams will be required to inform an official if they plan to use an onside kick, meaning they cannot surprise the opposing team with an onside kick.

  Facebook lets Gaming streamers pick and choose their community guidelines Let's face it: chats for gaming streams can get downright nasty. That's probably why Facebook is giving Gaming streamers access to helpful tools that can help them create and maintain a friendly environment for their fans. Sounds useful, especially since the company has been expanding the service and signing big-name gamers from rival platforms. The social network collaborated with Fair Play Alliance, a coalition of gaming companies, to write eight preset rules for a new toolkit.Those eight rules are:Be accepting Everyone is welcome, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, or ability.

XFL Rule . The kicker kicks from the 30-yard line and must kick the ball in the air and in play between the opponent’s 20-yard line and the end zone. Out of bounds kicks and kicks that fall short of the 20-yard line will result in an illegal procedure penalty, taking the ball all the way out to the kicking team’s

However, if the XFL is

Punts

Punting rules have also been changed to entice coaches to go for it on fourth down.

All punts that result in touchbacks will be placed on the receiving team’s 35-yard line. Punts that go out of bounds will also be placed on the receiving team’s 35-yard line, or wherever the ball went out if that occurred before reaching the 35.

The punting team may not cross the line of scrimmage before the ball is punted, which should reduce the amount of fair catches significantly.

Challenges

There are no coaches challenges in the XFL. All reviews will be initiated by a replay official. Via the XFL, here is a list of reviewable plays:

(a) Plays involving possession. (b) Plays involving touching of either the ball or the ground. (c) Plays governed by the goal line. (d) Plays governed by the boundary lines. (e) Plays governed by the line of scrimmage. (f) Plays governed by the line to gain. (g) Number of players on the field at the snap. (h) Game administration. (1) Penalty enforcement. (2) Proper down. (3) Spot of a foul. (4) Status of the game clock. (i) Disqualification of a player. This list of reviewable plays is identical to those in the NFL prior to 2019.

Major health records company fights federal rules on shareable patient data

  Major health records company fights federal rules on shareable patient data A major medical records company, Epic Systems, is urging hospitals to oppose new patient data rules proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS), CNBC reports. The regulations are meant to make it easier to share medical data and for patients to access their data using smartphone apps. But critics say the rules don't do enough to protect patient privacy, and opponents like Epic CEO Judy Faulkner fear app makers will have access to patient data without consent.

One of the major rules differences between the XFL and NFL was that there were no fair catches allowed in the former. However, the punt returner was allotted a 5-yard zone that the kicking team couldn’t enter into until the ball was touched. Also, any punt that went further than 25 yards was ruled

The XFL was a football league that competed with the NFL in 2001. On January 25th, 2018, which is just yesterday as I write this, they announced their 2020

OVERTIME FORMAT:

The XFL has devised a completely new format for overtime, which is comparable to a shootout in soccer.

In overtime, each team’s offense will have five attempts to complete a two-point conversion from the five-yard line, with each successful conversion being worth two points. The team with the most points at the end of the shootout is the winner. If one team clinches a win early, the unnecessary remaining rounds of the shootout will not be played.

There will be no coin toss to determine the order of overtime. The visiting team will always make the first two-point attempt.

Defenses cannot score in overtime possessions in the event of a turnover.

Penalties in overtime:

Penalties will be crucial in overtime plays. If the offensive team commits a pre-snap penalty, the ball will moved back and the play will be re-attempted. If the offense commits a post-snap penalty, the play is considered dead, and any score will not count.

If the defense commits a penalty pre-snap, the ball will be moved to the one-yard line. For a post-snap penalty, the offensive team will have the option to re-try the play from the one-yard line if they do not score. Any future penalties committed by the defense in any future round will result in an automatic score for the offense.

In the XFL this does not exist. in the NFL the PAT is a field goal but have the option to go for 2 points with a conversation however in the XFL all PAT’s are 2 point While they are both football at their core there are quite a lot of differences between the rules and how they are run as an operations.

TIMING RULES:

Game clock:

The XFL will use a running clock outside of the final two minutes of the second quarter, and the final two minutes of the fourth quarter.

The final two minutes of the second and fourth quarters is what the XFL refers to as the “comeback period.” During these periods, plays that end out of bounds or with an incompletion will stop the clock until the next snap. The clock will be stopped after all other plays that end in bounds until the ball is spotted and five seconds have run off the play clock. In theory, this should give an offensive team leeway to run plays in the center of the field, as they will be able to rush back to the line of scrimmage without time coming off the clock.

The play clock is 25 seconds, and will begin when the ball is spotted following the previous play.

There will be one official on the field dedicated to spotting the ball, in an effort to speed up the process compared to the NFL.

Timeouts:

Each XFL team will receive two timeouts per half, compared to three per half for NFL teams.

The halftime break will be 10 minutes.

Penalties:

The XFL’s “illegal man downfield” rule has been rewritten to make it easier for officials to enforce.

No ineligible player shall be or have been more than three yards beyond the line of scrimmage until a passer throws a legal forward pass that crosses the line of scrimmage. A player is in violation of this rule if any part of his body is beyond the three-yard limit.
