The AAF

Not a bad brand of football. Watching Atlanta vs Orlando.

Ole ball coach back on the field

And for BDR -  kickoffs are NOT important in this league.

Re: The AAF

watching San Antonio v San Diego......

Last football game in the Alamodome was in 2005

I thought Dallas had a team that was being coached by Bob Stoops.......apparently that’s the XFL

Re: The AAF

Believe the Atlanta coach is Brad Childress, ex Viking head coach. Michael Vick is OC.

Re: The AAF

· Kevin Coyle serves as Atlanta's head coach after late departures by Brad Childress and Michael Vick. The Alliance of American Football kicks off Saturday night, and the Atlanta Legends are among four teams set to make their debut as part of the AAF's Week 1 schedule.

Wow, that's interesting. I'll have to try and get the story on that one.

Re: The AAF

THIS is exactly what the G5 needs to do. Play football when the P5 is done and create separation.

The G5 should split their season into fall and spring. Play 7 games between Sept and early November. Take a break. Let P5 have their spotlight. Pick back up end of January and play 5 more until March. Have a FCS playoff format between the top 2 teams from each G5 conference. Have it finish before conference basketball tournaments commence.

Sponsors and media rights money will be far greater and you give the finger to the P5 with their controlled monopoly on the playoff.


You’re welcome......

Childress got a job with the Bears. OK, that makes sense.

Re: The AAF

Two former Southern Miss rival coaches on staff for Birmingham in Steve Logan(ECU) and Rick Minter(Cincinnati). Memphis Coach is former Bear Mike Singletary.

Ratings from last night have the AAF beating the NBA game of the week on ABC. So far it’s getting positive reviews for quality of games and production delivery by CBS.

Re: The AAF

The AAF missed an opportunity by not using former USFL team names. Would have drummed up a little more excitement if they used:

The San Antonio Gunslingers
The Memphis Showboats
The Orlando Renegades
The Birmingham Stallions
Arizona Outlaws

Can’t imagine licensing would have cost that much. Still love the 30 for 30 on the USFL when Rick Neuhisel was the QB for San Antonio which was owned by a local car dealer who was almost broke. They were a few weeks behind on payment to the players and during the middle of a practice they got a check from the owner. The deal was it could only be cashed by one bank located just outside of the city. Rick said all of the players immediately left practice and jumped into their cars and raced to that bank knowing that probably only a few of their checks would actually cash.

During one particularly bad Saints game in the later Haslett years, I tried to start a "Bring Back the Breakers" chant in section 637. There weren't really enough people there for it to gain traction.

Re: The AAF

No kickoffs or PATs which is also great. 35 second play clock. Games coming in around 2.5 hours on average.
