Houston Roughnecks player DeMarquis Gates pulled an epic move after being ejected.

Gates was tossed Saturday against the Seattle Dragons for throwing a punch, and proceeded to give a sideline interview and sign autographs. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch the awesome moment below.

In the NFL and in college football, players who get ejected are immediately escorted to the locker room and off of the field.

Not in the XFL. In the XFL, you hang around to give interviews and sign autographs. That’s the kind of energy we love.

How can anybody not love the XFL? This is awesome. Can you imagine this ever happening in the NFL? The answer is no.

There’s no shot at all an ejected player would just hang around for autographs and an interview. The player access in the XFL is second to none.

I can’t wait to see what we get next. I have no doubt it’ll be just as entertaining.
