    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I’m surprised I haven’t seen anyone talking about the logo snippets the AAF has been posting to social media. I’ve seen a lot of comments speculating cities and names based off these but those are honestly just wild guesses. The only color combination I don’t care for at this time is the red, white and blue one as those are the league colors.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Honestly I think one of the issues is we've seen quite a few leagues announce they are starting up and never get off the ground and actually play games. In recent years I've seen the New USFL, A11 Football and a couple of others that I can't think of a the moment. I'm cautiously optimistic and am following the media from the league, but I won't really started getting invested in the league until they actually start playing games.

    2018 CFL Season: The March for 106

    Video unavailable This video contains content from Whistle Sports, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds. Wow, I guess Whistle Sports has American viewers banging down their doors to steal their CFL that's just kind of sad!

    Southeastern Conference Super Expansion

    Love the idea and really looking forward to this, but I would really keep Auburn and Alabama in the same I'd stack 'em up... SEC North - North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt SEC South - Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Auburn SEC East - Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina SEC West - Mississippi, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Louisiana State

    Should I Get ESPN+?

    It’s $5 a month, can you afford that? Is it in your wheelhouse to do so? For some that’s a drop in the bucket, for others, not so much. Only you can determine whether that monthly investment is feasible and worth it for you.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    It wasn’t the “retread” and “waiting to retire” coaches that killed the USFL, the on the field product was pretty stinking good. It was the escalating salaries trying to steal NFL talent away without the deep pockets or incoming revenue to sustain the bidding war and finally Trump running roughshod and wanting to move to the fall. I’ve said this to many of friend that have ribbed me about watching the CFL...they tell me that it’s an inferior and bush league or minor league product, not worth watching because it’s not a NFL level professional league. I always counter by asking if they enjoy a high schoo game or a lower level college game now and then and of course they do. It’s not only about the level of talent of the players, but is the level of talent between teams on a fairly equatable enough level to produce a fun and exciting product to watch. I firmly believe there is enough “almost good enough” players out there to have and sustain a viable and fun to watch on the field product if the management and direction of the league is handled well enough. Once again though, time will tell...

    Personally I think it’s a smart move to have instantly recognizable names coaching the teams. They are all certainly proven commodities to one extant or the other as head coaches and if nothing else the name recognition could serve to pique the interest of potential fans that may be on the fence. It definitely makes more sense than naming a bunch of nobodies as the head coaches. In my opinion, a start up league doesn’t have the luxury at this point to name “the next great up and coming coordinator” as a head coach.

    Wideright imagines the AAF

    Nicely done, love both of the names and concepts...surprisingly I really like the two colored numbers on Orlando. The Surf hearkens back to one of my all time favorite helmets, the Breakers from the USFL. I think having the blue be more predominant might work better there.

    How viable is the Cotton Bowl in the Dallas area?

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    You’d be surprised how wonderful the weather can be along the Colorado Front Range during late winter and into early spring...really much better than late season games for the Broncos. Sure it can be cold and dreary but it’s pretty typical to be in the 40’s with blazing sun which is spectacular and not uncommon for us to be in the 50’s and 60’s.

    I'd love to see someplace in the Rocky Mountain states, definitely under represented. Mile High may be out of the question, but CSU in Ft. Collins has a nice new stadium and Folsom Field at CU is a great size as well. Not as familiar with Utah, but I'm sure one of the college stadiums there would be suitable and could draw fans.

    I’m definitely rooting for SOME spring league to play some decent and competitive football...I have very fond memories of the USFL.
