    Default Millersville Alum General Manager of Memphis Express

    I wasn't sure if anyone had posted this, but Will Lewis, a graduate of Millersville University, is the general manager for Memphis Express in the AAF. Will has had a long career in professional football as a player, coach and in the front office.

    Well, not even I thought the AAF would be done this soon. Sounds like this league was a real clown show at the top, starting with their “savior” Mr. Loudon. Very unfortunate for everyone else involved.

    They even left the guys stranded ... had to buy their own plane tickets home.

    What's even worse is some players are homeless as the hotels they were put into by the teams have kicked them out immediately smh. A total S*it show and embarrassment and hopefully the XFL has taken notice and won't be a replica of a disaster. IMO they launched way too quickly and the season should have run from May through the end of June after the draft so they would be able to sign kids who didn't get drafted for whatever reason and needed some exposure.

    The XFL should just fold now. Save the time and money. I just cannot see any possibility it doesn't end in the same fashion (again).

    Exactly. The only lesson to be learned here is that minor league football doesn’t work. But Vince is stubborn and desperately doesn’t want to be known just as “the wrestling guy”, so a year from now we’ll be here again watching the XFL go down in flames.

    The XFL "30 for 30" was fantastic. Wonder if they are planning the sequel? LOL.

    I think they got more buzz by launching the week after the Super Bowl. That timing was better than having to compete with the start of MLB, and the end of the NHL and NBA seasons. And it did give a player like undrafted Max Redfield some exposure after coming back from injury. I hope he benefits from this token AAF season.

    As far as the AAF, nobody really knows why Loudon pulled the plug. A lot of speculation. He saw the AAF as a minor league/developmental league and saw that wasn't happening. In my view, he probably ran up against the power structure that is the NFL and major college football and saw it wasn't moving.

    Exactly. The NFL already has an elite feeder system.

    You can't stock a league with NFL failures and no-names. USFL had college stars and established NFL guys. If you're packaging yourself as pro football you need the top shelf
