https://aaf.com/ Co-founded by Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, the AAF will debut a week after the 2019 Super Bowl. There are a few familiar faces spearheading this new league, including: Troy Polamalu - Head of Player Relations Jared Allen - Player Relations Executive Justin Tuck - Player Engagement Board of Advisor The league will begin with 8 teams with a 12-week schedule. Games will be broadcasted on CBS. Fans will also be able to stream games via the Alliance app. Darren Rovell tweets the league will offer players a variety of perks including Win, Stats, and Fan Engagement bonuses. Rovell also tweets the league will follow suite with the Atlanta Falcons and offer value pricing on food and drink at stadiums. https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976116728907395072 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976115504019537920 Team locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
ForwardProgress posted a topic in Sports LogosConsidering the NFL had it's first major throwback uniform season in 1994 to celebrate the league's 75th season, I've been wondering for years how the NFL's 100th season in 2019 would look as far as uniforms are concerned. Since it is now only three years away I thought I would make a post about it so we can see who was right when 2019 does finally get here. If the 75th season can give us any ideas, they would be that every team will wear a 100th season jersey patch (every team wore a diamond-shaped 75th Season jersey patch in 1994, even on the throwback uniforms) but I think that's where the similarities between the two seasons will end. I do think special uniforms will be worn in 2019, but I don't think they will be throwbacks. The throwback trend seems to be dead for multiple reasons (played out / losing popularity, pretty much run out of interesting old uniforms to bring back, players must wear the same helmet throughout the season now so that eliminates a lot of options, etc.) so I'm guessing in 2019 to celebrate the 100th Season of the league they will do a throw forward year, with every single team having Color Rush (or some other gimmick) games or having Nike design "Pro Combat" style one-off uniforms designed to be worn with each team's normal helmet. If you don't count Super Bowl XXIX, when the league let the 49ers wear their 1994 throwbacks longer than teams were initially allowed and throwout the playoffs and Super Bowl, I believe Super Bowl LIV, played at the end of the 2019 season, could be the first year we see alternate jerseys or special one-off "Pro Combat" uniforms in the Super Bowl, if it doesn't happen this year for Super Bowl 50 (could be a nice game day or game time surprise for the 50th celebration.) In addition to "throw forward" and "Pro Combat" uniforms I'm sure the NFL will make an exception and let the two teams that played in the very first season of the NFL and are still around have a throwback year like they did for the original AFL teams in 2009 for the 50th Anniversary of the AFL. That means the Bears would throwback as the Decatur Staleys and the Cardinals would throwback as the Chicago Cardinals (that would be an interesting game: Chicago vs Chicago! With 1920 throwbacks!!!) So what do you guys think? What do you think is going to happen three years from now during the 100th Season of the NFL as far as team uniforms and logos are concerned?
