    Yea this has been the complaint pretty much universally online. Stats are almost impossible to find. I know Reden had a couple targets in his game, I think he caught a pass or two.

    NoExtraPoints.com has stat tracking for the AAF.

    It took me literally 10 seconds to find stats on the AAF website for last nights game?....

    They all got put up this morning. There was nothing for any of the four games until this morning besides play-by-plays.

    Edit: Guess Reden didn't even get a target? I was watching the game and remember seeing him out there and the announcers saying his name a couple times. Oh well.

    Ha, I thought this was a joke post since they don't kick extra points, but it isn't!

    Yeah, that stuff wasn't up there earlier. The story was up but not any official stats. Good to see him on a roster. He was a really good player and hope he can contribute.

    I watched some of the games. I think there is room for this and I hope they make it. I like the idea of the AAF (developmental/minor league) better than the XFL (entertainment).

    I think ESPN and Fox Sports are purposely not reporting on it, as they don't have the broadcast contract. It reminds me of when ESPN lost the NHL contract years ago and then went on to basically eliminate reporting on the NHL altogether. Hockey went from being one of the 4 sports to being treated like it was bowling or billiards.

    Unfortunately these "minor" leagues come and go like the weather.

    The one that lasted the longest was Arena football.

    IMO, There is just too much young talent available each year for a developmental league to be successful.

    I agree with the first part... BUT it appears this league is more like what Triple AAA ball is to the MLB to some extent. I watched some of one of the games this weekend and they mentioned the league consisted of 80% of players who were actually on NFL rosters at one time or another and many were not FA or lower round draft picks either. I would say it might be more of a second or third chance league and some will end up back on NFL rosters.

    It was nice to see the Refs not being a factor and the QB not being treated with kid gloves

    Luis played great! He had 4 very obvious drops, should have been 300+ easy.

    Agreed on ESPN purposely not reporting on it due to the contract. I was on the ESPN gamecenter app trying to find box scores and they didnt even have the league listed. They literally have Badminton scores on there, but no AAF.

    The AAF is positioning their league as the NFL developmental and experimental option. Think they're working very closely together. XFL is another matter entirely. Think the AAF can be reasonably successful if the expectations are kept in check.

    I like that they are keeping ticket prices in the $15 - $40 range and the games are over in 2.5 hrs.

    My understanding is the NFL and the AAF are working very closely together as the AAF is experimenting with things. There are no kickoffs, no extra points, the audience gets to hear the instant replay process from the replay officials. If the NFL likes any of the changes, they can adapt them to their game. One very important isssue is time of play. 2.5 hours is great.

    I thought this part was awesome. Definitely would benefit the NFL if they started doing this.

    I finally read an article where Vaughan was beat out for the starting QB spot. They didnt say much game night. Im pretty sure he is done professionally. Looks like Perez is the lone hopeful for a shot at the league again

    Didn't he want to go to dental school or something like that? Might not be a bad time to go ahead and get started on that.

    The comments I heard did not make it seem like it was a permanent promotion for the other QB. Open competition each week.
    Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

    I'm not sure on that. In an Amarillo Globe article last week, it sounded like it was a long thought out decision to pursue this AAF opportunity
