    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Honestly in this day and age of streaming via various packages those that are interested in the games will find them. I happily paid the $5 a month for ESPN+ in order to be able to watch all the CFL games this season...I wouldn't think twice about paying that to see the AAF games this season just because I'm curious enough and hoping they put out a decent enough product to succeed.

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    I like the way the CFL does it with the defensive line being a yard off of the ball, definitely lessens some of those collisions for the guys in the trenches.

    Actually, much like the Front Range of Colorado the weather in the Salt Lake area can be pretty nice during that time of year. Yes you can get a ton of snow, but more often than not it's chilling and the sun is shining...when the sun is out it's quite pleasant.

    Charlie Ebersol said it in a video I saw, if memory serves me correctly it at the beginning of the Quarterback Live Draft coverage. I'm trying to find it online but am striking out so far...I remember because it surprised me.

    Don't forget that the AAF is paying housing/lodging for the players and their families during the season.

    Regarding Josh Johnson getting signed by the Redskins, it's a desperation move made out of necessity by Washington as Jay Gruden is familiar with Johnson from their days with the Bucs. He's a stop gap there to finish out the season. He'll be back wearing a San Diego uniform and playing in the AAF come February. And honestly, I think it'll be fine on the AAF's part. I think it'll be very rare for a player to get signed by a NFL club in the middle of the AAF season. Even for those AAF players that get signed by the NFL most will simply be camp bodies or have short term NFL employment. There likely will be a few diamonds in the rough that hit it big, but I reckon that will be the exception and not the rule. However these dudes can make a good living in the AAF with a solid salary, just like in the CFL, and continue to do what they love to do, which is play football.

    Not really, you rarely, if ever, see a returner in the CFL get his clock cleaned with the 5-yard halo.

    I've thought for the last few years about this...on a US sized field, remove the two lineman and implement some of the CFL rules like the waggle, rouge, no fair catches, shorter play clock, etc. to make for a faster tempo game.

    Potential CFL Halifax Names

    Schooners would be my bet in the way they go although I don't mind any of the others really...the BIG one though is they need to come up a different color scheme. Something we haven't seen in the CFL and honestly I'd like to see something outside the box that isn't represented in the NFL either.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    I prefer the retro logo as well...and I'll add I dig the Bombers in those gold jerseys and blue pants.

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    The M needs a thin white outline in my opinion...the University of Arizona wore an almost identical color scheme this season and I thought the same thing about those as well.

    Love the ties back to the Tampa Bay Bandit days when John Reaves played quarterback for Spurrier there.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    For me it's gotta be USFL uniforms but especially I loved me some BanditBall...I was in high school at the time, lived about 2 hours from Tampa and went to a handful of games over the life of the league. Definitely more exciting than the Bucs.
