Orlando Guardians XFL quarterback sold plays to opposing teams?
Over two weeks in XFL season, Orlando Guardians is 0-2, in last place in the XFL South. Their attack was particularly poor, scoring just 12 points per game and absolutely none in the second or third quarter of each game. Winger Paxton Lynch has been noticed and remembered for eternity as the only quarterback in history to be substituted in the NFL, USFL and now XFL. However, that may not be his fault.
Based on report, Guardians backup QB Quinten Dormady got his team playing offensively against their opponents. However, after being cut off by the team yesterday, XFL restore Dormady Today. According to a statement from XFL Vice President of Communications, Jeff Altstadter, “The League is actively looking into a staffing issue regarding an Orlando Guardians player who was removed from the team yesterday afternoon. .” The statement continued, “Additional information about the situation was brought to the attention of the federation overnight and the federation reinstated the player while conducting an official investigation into the matter. The situation is being reviewed and we will share more details of the findings as appropriate.”
The statement did not directly name Dormady, nor did it clarify whether Dormady would be reinstated by the federation or team.
Two weeks later and we have our first XFL controversy
Obviously, this is a bad look for the XFL if the allegations against Dormady are true. The league is trying to create a culture that can rival the NFL, and it’s not good for a player to objectively sabotage his own team. That said, the decision to sell his team’s play to their opponents would be the dumbest move of all time by Dormady, wouldn’t it?

Think about it. If true, Dormady is either so hesitant about his own talent that he tries to make a few extra bucks before the league realizes how bad he is, or (more likely) he thinks “If I sell these this play, then Paxton Lynch will do badly. in front of me. Then I will have a chance to play and shine. Then I’ll win a big contract and get ready for life!
One problem, man. You and Lynch use the same playbook! Is Dormady going to stop selling his team’s plays after he’s chosen as starter? It has no meaning. If you give up your play to your opponent, whoever is below the center, you will have a hard time beating the defence. If anything, that raises some doubts over the allegations. You would have to be super stupid to make a move like that.
Furthermore, maybe the Guardians are just as bad as their offense. Before the season, they were considered one of the worst teams in the league due to inexperienced coaching staff and questionable midfield situations. Now, the team did more Lynch a few weeks after those rankings were released, but as everyone pointed out, Lynch was never successful anywhere he went. Maybe he can’t lead to an offense at all.
Let me be clear, I am not defending Dormady. While we don’t know if he revealed his team’s turn, the Guardians must have had some evidence to back that up, given how quickly they cut Dormady after advancing. conduct investigation. We’re currently not sure if the information obtained by the league is reason enough to reinstate Dormady, but it must have been wise for them to make such a drastic move less than 24 hours after the man This is disqualified.
The Guardians play Arlington Renegades tomorrow at 4pm ET tomorrow. I guarantee Dormady won’t be the most famous person in the dressing room in Orlando before the game.
