The reasons frequently cited are the shallow talent pool, the high frequency of injuries due to XFL-unique rules, and the (((sports media))) not respecting its legitimacy.
I think they had a lot of neat innovations that I'd like to see in the NFL. No PAT, 1-3 points for the conversion depending on the distance from the goal line, bump-and-run until the ball is thrown (which they removed), the opening scramble instead of the coin toss, no fair catches on punts or out-of-bounds punts, and receiver motion before the snap. Vince would've been better off investing in AFL instead.
