Death of the Alliance of American Football

Recommended Posts

Hopefully San Diego can muster up enough offense to see an "onside" (or whatever they're calling it) attempt.

Is there an AAF rulebook somewhere? After that San Antonio interception, the defender who made the pick was never touched. Wouldn't the ball still be live and become a touchback or something after he just chucks it out of the endzone?

It is basically the NFL Rulebook, with their own changes, like onside kicks. The rules were released late this week, so they may not have thought of every situation.

 

The AAF Reddit page likely has a thread with the said link, but look at pages 2-5 since there were two games tonight.

I would guess he can surrender himself when he goes down in the end zone. I've seen this allowed in the NFL as well.

I like it, so far, but it feels strange without kickoffs.  I think the field position should at least have a chance to be improved (or worsened) by the returner’s decision.  Plus you never know when someone is going to bust one.

I keep thinking I've zoned out because of that. I'm surprised to see them adjust so quickly to the 25 second clock on offense.

Two muffed punts in Orlando and I'm guessing from the low score out west, the QB play's been a problem.  Hopefully, the fans are more forgiving of some ugly play with the AAF than they were with the XFL.  Not having wrestling announcers and a more serious presentation in general probably helps, though.

Woodside threw 2 picks, one was a tip drill and the 2nd was he and the WR not on the same page inside the San Diego 20. He also had 2 overthrows and a pass offline that would've been TDs as well. I'm surprised how long it took Mike Martz to remember he has running backs. They didn't have any success running until the second half.

Was this Michael Vick's gameplan? No wonder that he's now gone.

Simms was QB, that had to have an affect as well.

MGM. the AAF's partner, had the following lines for tonight's games.

 

Atlanta vs. Orlando (-4), O/U 62.5
San Diego vs. San Antonio (-3) O/U 64.5

 

Tomorrow's games have to have a big adjustment because as of Thursday, they were:

Memphis @ Birmingham (-2.5) O/U 57.5

Salt Lake @ Arizona (-4.5) O/U 67.5

I saw the Orlando game clocked in at 2:35. The NFL averages about 3:12.

Glad to see that they've delivered not only on the football front but also the fact that they succeeded in getting the game time down to 2.5 hours. The app needs a lot more working on but I expect that to be improved throughout the season.

The football on national TV tonight was bad, the broadcast, while professional, was unremarkable outside of the terrible-sounding drops for swearing, and I don't know how the league progresses past that first impression.

 

I felt robbed when that last-minute INT meant we wouldn't get to see an onside non-kick.

 

Also, isn't the app just NTN QB1?

Books took a bath on the XFL early on from people betting the under, didn't they?

AAF: We want to speed up the game with less commercials and shorter play clocks

 

Also AAF: We are going to tell you the game starts at 8 but make you listen to boring commentary for almost 40 minutes before the first game.

 

My guide on Hulu showed the pregame starting at 8:00EST and the actual game at 8:30.

More like the offensive line protection is a problem...they just need a little more time.

The app does have a rushed feel about it. I wanted to just see game stats but I had the option of watching the game live or playing the guess the play bit.

This is the first real negative post I’ve read about the play of the games.
