The Los Angeles Xtreme was a short-lived professional American football team based in Los Angeles, California. The team was a member of the failed XFL begun by Vince McMahon of World Wrestling Entertainment and by NBC, a major television network in the United States. The team played its home games in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the spring of 2001. They were in the XFL's Western Division with the San Francisco Demons, the Memphis Maniax and the Las Vegas Outlaws. They finished the season in 1st place with a 7-3 record and defeated the Chicago Enforcers in the Playoffs and the San Francisco Demons in the Million Dollar Game with a score of 38-6 to win the league's first (and only) Championship.

History

The LA Xtreme were the only champions of the XFL because NBC dropped the XFL concept after the first season due to dismal ratings. Shortly after this, McMahon announced that the league would be dissolved. However, the Xtreme's quarterback, Tommy Maddox, subsequently caught on with the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League, later leading them into the playoffs in 2001 and 2002. Maddox also won the XFL's Most Valuable Player award. Jeremaine Copeland has become one of the best CFL receivers ever with his former team, the Montreal Alouettes and his current team, the Calgary Stampeders.
