    Good article about Luis Perez:

    Read where this is an 8 man program with some interesting rules.

    I believe it's still 11 man but we'll see soon with the season kicking off today

    Gardner is starting for San Diego. Let's hope they mention the situation at HSU during the broadcast to shame the admin there. Ironic thing, Watson was actually a San Diego/Los Angeles Charger and now is San Diego Fleet.

    Lawrence Pittman RB (Wingate) got some late carries for Atlanta.

    I'm all in on this league. It's great to see these players get another opportunity, especially the D2 guys. AND the football was actually pretty good, even though the defense are certainly ahead of the offenses at this point.

  12. Default Re: D2 Players in the AAFL

    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.

  13. Default Re: D2 Players in the AAFL

    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.

    Little article showing Americans watched last night. I hope it sticks I'd love watching football in the spring rather than baseball

    I'd really like the NFL to double down on this. Make it like the NBA G league. Draft players earlier than may, do it sometime in February. Let this league play 8 games in the spring and 8 again in the fall with the rosters filled with training camp cut players so they have a chance to get better rather than praying for one of very few practice teams spots

    That is a really good idea, something like what NFL Europe used to be for them.

    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
