    Default Alliance Football League

    For those who need an off season football fix, they have started playing in the new Alliance League. Games started tonight on CBS and will also be on tomorrow afternoon on CBSSN. Two former LSC QB's (Dustin Vaughn and Luis Perez) as well as a few other former LSC players are on several of the rosters.

    Luis Perez is supposed to start tomorrow for Birmingham. He apparently beat out Blake Sims from Alabama. Can't wait.

    I thought that the San Diego was going to catch the ball in the end zone on the last play- but it wouldn't have changed the outcome.

    30,000 people there? That is a nice number.

    Khiry was released. Said his phone was to much of a distraction for him.

    I like the Birmingham colors but they should have the silver B on the side of the helmet. This look is too generic.

    All the uniforms/names remind me of Any Given Sunday.

    I did catch some of the Memphis-Birmingham game this afternoon. Overall, the AAF is kinda sloppy for their first week, but I can't help but think the offenses are going to catch up to the defenses in the coming weeks.

    San Diego-San Antonio made Super Bowl 53 look like Super Bowl 52 by comparison. My god, that was just horrible football.

    I can't find box scores for any of the games. I noticed our old TE, Stehly Reden, is on the San Antonio team but don't know if had any passes thrown to him or not. Can't see total yards, rushing yards, QB stats, nada. If someone can find box scores please provide a link.

    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.

    Is anyone watching the San Diego v. Atlanta game tonight in the NFL Network?

    I know I'm getting older, but it is hard for me to tell the two teams apart because their uniforms are so close to the same color.

    San Diego has Navy Blue jerseys with yellow around the sleeves and white pants.
    Atlanta has purple jerseys (that look blue) with old gold around the sleeves and old gold pants.

    At least they have different color socks on.

    I thought that there was a requirement in most leagues to have contrasting colors on the two teams to make it easier to distinguish between them.

    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
