Is XFL Betting Legal?

As long as you place your bets at an online or brick and mortar sportsbook that is operating legally offshore or domestically, then yes, it is perfectly legal.  The sportsbooks you see on this page are all operating legally within the industry and are either independently licensed or are owned and operated by a parent company that holds licensing credentials.

So if you live in a state that has not yet legalized local sports betting, or you simply prefer the online betting options from international sportsbooks, you can place your bets at legitimate offshore sports betting sites without violating any state or federal gambling laws.  The exceptions are CT and WA, both of which have prohibited all forms of online gambling, and the state of NJ, which has convinced offshore sportsbooks to exit the NJ gambling market.

DC Defenders Personnel

Head Coach and General Manager: Pep Hamilton

Pep Hamilton began his coaching career at his alma mater, Howard University.  After five seasons, he then moved on to become an offensive position coach for New York Jets.   In 2006 he became the quarterback coach for the San Francisco 49ers, and then moved on to serve in the same role for the Chicago Bears the following year.

After spending a couple of seasons in the collegiate ranks at Stanford and then returning to the NFL once again, Pep has turned his sights to the XFL, where he will be a head coach for the first time.  Hamilton will bring his pass-happy offensive scheme to Washington DC and try to keep opposing defenses guessing.

XFL Salaries for DC Defenders

The salary structure for the DC Defenders will mirror the structure of all other teams in the XFL.  The average player salary will be $55,000.  However, this salary will be supplemented in the form of weekly bonuses.  The winning team for each game will split a winner’s share pot amongst the players.  There will also be a bonus awarded to those that are merely active on the roster for a given week.

Highly skilled or productive quarterback and skill position players will have the opportunity to supplement their pay and draw a much higher salary than the average.  The league has also set the maximum salary for XFL coaches at $500,000 per year.
