Thread: Gardner, Thornton, Watson, Kitna on San Diego Fleet

  1. #1

    Default Gardner, Thornton, Watson, Kitna on San Diego Fleet

    There appears to be a new football league called the AAF. Tyler Thornton, Ja'quan Gardner, and Terrell Watson all are on the roster of San Diego https://aaf.com/san-diego-fleet/roster/

    Also several UW alumni on the team including Bishop Sankey. Jon Kitna is listed as the team's offensive coordinator

    There are three new leagues actually with the FFL and XFL too. Does that mean though Kitna is no longer teaching math in Tacoma? Also sad to see Watson off the Chargers roster.

    Kitna hasn't been in Tacoma in years now. He was coaching in Texas the last few years and is now coaching in Arizona. Watson and Gardner on the same team now! They will have a lethal rushing game! I hope the Seattle XFL team will have some former CWU players

    It looks like Thornton missed the cut, but Watson and Gardner are both on the active opening day roster! Dang is Watson really 240 lbs? https://aaf.com/its-go-time-roster-i...r-season-debut

    Great opportunity for both of them to make a name for themselves.

    You forgot Kitna likley not an OC now in this league as he's QB coach in Dallas. I see a Matt Kitna still on staff though. Great news about Watson and Gardner! Here's to Gardner using this to springboard into the NFL and stick it to the HSU administration!

    I found an interesting article on the rules. No kickoffs, no extra points. OT's each team gets the ball at 10 and must score a touchdown in 4 downs and with no field goals It sounds like they are testing no kickers for the NFL.

    In lieu of an onside kick, teams have the option of attempting to convert a 4th-and-12 from their own 28. Teams can only attempt this play in the final 5 minutes of the game, or if they are at trailing by at least 17 points. Should be interesting.

    I was going to say Not-the-Watson was starting, but let's hope that they mention HSU's situation on this broadcast.

    Gardner just had a great drive. Began with a 25 yard run. 40 yards for him in the drive. Unfortunately the QB threw a pick near the end zone

    League got higher TV ratings than the NBA this weekend; saw a lot of people at the San Antonio home game.

    That GNAC rushing attack is really humming along for San Diego. Gardner ran for 122 yards and a TD, while Watson added in 73 yards and a pair of 2-point conversions tonight in a 31-11 win.

    Reports are saying the AAF is suspending play. I am surprised, as it looked like it was off to a nice start. I am wondering if hype began to die as the season went on. This sucks for players like Watson and Gardner who are showcasing themselves

    Hopefully their agents take their tape and get it to NFL teams for training camp invites.

    There are two viable professional leagues on this earth: NFL & CFL. I've seen a ton of them -- USFL, XFL, NFL Europe, and now AAF. I hope I'm not fooled again as I thought AAF would work.

    I'm always amazed people are willing to invest in new leagues after a horrific track record. The Carolina Panthers owner put $250M into the AAF, bet he wishes he had that money back, though to him it probably means nothing.

    He's actually the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL, not the Panthers, but your point still stands. It's a shame that the AAF basically turned into WFL v.2.0 with the way they've suspended operations in the middle of a season.
