Xbox Controller: XFL Replay Official Uses an Xbox Controller to Review Plays
Yes. That is an Xbox One controller. You can see the lit up Xbox symbol on the front of the controller and it seems the replay official is using it to watch footage of the game. The game took place on Sunday between the New York
Guardians and the Tampa Bay Vipers. During the play, one of the players on the Vipers appeared to make a catch and fumble the ball. The Guardians picked it up and advanced it before getting tackled.
The play went under review before it was overturned by Robert Lu, the replay official, who made the change after watching the review and clearly seeing the player only have one foot down before being hit and losing the ball. Therefor, the play was an incomplete pass, not a fumble.
