Are the LA Wildcats the Cleveland Browns of the XFL?

Both Shawn Oakman and Jerimiah Spicer were cut early in training camp because they were playing too physical.

This is not the first time the Los Angeles Wildcats made a move based off of emotions. Winston Moss the former Green Bay Packers football star and now head coach of the LA Wildcats made some interesting moves one week after getting beat by the Houston Roughnecks.

Head Coach and General Manager Winston Moss made modifications to his coaching staff following the Los Angeles Wildcats loss to the Houston Roughnecks on Saturday.


As of Monday morning, Pepper Johnson was relieved of his duties as the team’s defensive coordinator. The crazy thing is they have not named a replacement.

It did not stop there though, the Wildcats also cut their defensive captain Anthony Johnson. This may sound like a move to turn the team around but remember this, after the first couple practices earlier in the year, the Wildcats released former Homeless LB Jerimiah Spicer and Shawn Oakman because they were being too physical during practice.

Oakman was later signed back, but Spicer remains a free agent. From homelessness, eight high schools, no four-year college offers, and extreme poverty to 147 tackles in Arena Football and NFL tryout invites. Unfortunately, Spicer is still a free agent, but you cannot say he did not give his all. Shoot, we heard he was cut because he was too aggressive on the practice field.

After watching the game this weekend they could have used some physicality on both sides of the ball. I guess when you practice and are afraid to hit, you cannot get mad when your team doesn’t want to hit the opponents. Just something to keep in mind, maybe they gave Winston Moss too much power…..

Remember this too, Corey Vereen was drafted by the LA Wildcats and played for Memphis Express along with Anthony Johnson and their coach was who? Pepper Johnson…..

Maybe, just Maybe, Corey Vereen was blessed with the gift of discernment, because remember he walked away from the XFL earlier this year.
