Will; the 12th man show up for the Enforcers?

By Troy Pringle

Chicago – (21 February 2001) — You would think that an Enforcers fan would be down considering the team starts out its inaugural season 0-3. Coach Ron Meyer and the Enforcers should just pack up their bags because the season is a short 10-week season and they are already 3 games behind the first place Orlando Rage.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Have you REALLY been watching any of the games?

The Enforcers have lost the first three games by a total of 22 points, a 7 point average deficit. That’s right…just one touchdown! Take that into perspective considering that the average deficit for the rest of the league is 9 points. To take this a step further, the Enforcers have been in a game-winning situation in each game and in all likelihood should be 3-0, or at least 2-1.

Saturday’s game against the New York/New Jersey Hitmen should prove to be an exciting game. This could be the game that turns the season around for Chicago. Tim Lester is having a hard time carrying the Enforcers in clutch situations, so we must depend on that 12th man, the fans, to put them over the top.

If a city can support the Bears, who insist on playing Cade McNown, the “Charles Puleri” of the NFL, then the Enforcers should have the highest attendance in the XFL. This team is exciting to watch. They can move the ball, make big plays, and the defense has shown that they are ready to step up. The Enforcers are the team to watch and, with five of the last seven games at home, they can be the comeback team of the league.

There are still plenty of seats available, so for just $25, you can be a part of the fun watching John Avery, the league’s best running back, burst through the Hitmen’s defense for some big yardage, or Aaron “Big Play” Bailey do what he does best.
