Re: Alliance of American Football

Apparently Atlanta sucks ass in this league too

I’ll still check out a game. Why not.

Re: Alliance of American Football

Them being friendly with the NFL helps them so much. the NFL needs a minor league like this to develop people who aren't quite ready, and to keep fill ins game active.
Love that you can listen in on the replay conversations.
Not being in NFL markets for the most part was also very smart.
Having the game in 10 minutes up on youtube so fast. a must for any sports league in 2019.

Re: Alliance of American Football

Watched the first two games on Saturday (Orlando vs Atlanta & San Antonio vs San Diego) I got some specific qualms/questions with some of these new rules (that overtime stuff is bad, ) but I had some fun watching. The San Antonio fanbase already seemed like...oddly die-hard one game in, but that's Texas football for ya. There's this weird feel of college meets 2nd string football here, so one season or more, I'll be checking in with the novelty.

This need to be CINEMATIC is strange though. You can tell some of the players didn't care for all the cameras about & the constant mic'ing had its ins and outs. There still are some gimmicks within this, not shy from XFL shenanigans. Defense getting incentives for picks and stuff to get more money? WHAT? How American. Nine weeks to go, I can hang.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

I just found out about this. Trent Richardson is still bad. Peaked at Bama rip.

Commanders obviously.

I tried watching a game on replay yesterday, and...eh. After the Super Bowl, to watch what’s basically a bunch of third- and fourth-string guys chasing sach other around felt empty. I’ll give it more chances, but there’s a reason I don’t watch college ball: I only want to see the best.

Re: Alliance of American Football

I couldn't tell you which game I watched some of yesterday but it was terrible. The teams couldn't move the ball and the QBs couldn't throw very well.

Re: Alliance of American Football

Tom Dundon jumps in and apparently saves the season with a $250 million investment. Depending on who you believe, it sounds like the league might have folded this week if this money hadn't come along.

Apparently, Tom Dundon is considering shutting down the AAF. Citing the need for support from the NFLPA to properly act as a development league.
