    I also heard that but I have seen parts of 4 game thus far, all being 11 man. A good football fix for this time of year. My only complaint is the referee uniforms are kinda dorky.

    They've already made more effort with this league, than they have in previous leagues. I'm with you on them getting even more involved.

    I think it really helps the AAF that in everything leading up to the games Saturday, that they emphaized that this is not a rival to the NFL and that it is purely about development for those looking to get their shot/revive careers - both players and coaches (moving forward).

    I agree with y'all. However, another important point, in my eyes, is that distinction from the NFL.

    Obviously, some folks are down on the NFL because of several reasons and franchises like B'ham should expect to benefit from NFL-disdain more than others. The league has consistently overlooked the state for franchise opportunities and Bama folks don't forget that stuff.

    I was happy that over 17K very loud fans showed up at Legion Field. I expect that to grow for the next home game.

    TV is going to be the big bugger... especially with games being shifted away from CBS to tbs. Hope the numbers don't drop that steeply so the league can stay afloat and get better deals next year

    I almost wonder if CBS may try to renegotiate that and carry at least one game a week. I believe I read somewhere that it surpassed the ratings for whatever they've shown in that slot the past few years.

    I re-added the Sports Package to my local cable plan so I can watch on CBS Sports and the NFL Network.

    You are correct sir. Not too bad of football for this time of year.

    I believe you can stream the games directly from the AAF website.

    Can confirm that's how I've watched most of the games seeing as how I don't have NFL Network or CBS sports network

    I've watched the NFLN & CBSSN AAF games on a YouTube livestream.

    Watching the Memphis Express and U Indy receiver Reece Horn returned punts and was the go to guy for QB Christian Hackenburg. He had 5 or 6 catches and looked explosive. Also fun to watch for Memphis was RB Zac Stacy who had multiple 100 yard games in the NFL for the Rams.
