I've seen parts of all eight games so far. It's football, and it's not bad.

The announcers have to stop pushing the NFL. These players aren't on NFL rosters for a reason. A very small handful may get another NFL opportunity, but very few stand out as being a man among boys.

I like the replay official being on air.

No kickoffs makes the games go a lot faster.

Must go for two is an interesting twist. Teams have to come up with better plays though.

Defenses can only rush the QB with five and are limited on where they can come from. Even with that some teams are struggling to develop any offense, which really illustrates how difficult it is to put a good offensive line on the field.

Do the individual teams have owners, or are all teams owned by "the Alliance?"

Gotta think tho, these are all brand new teams with not much practice or game action so the offenses should be weak right now.

I know I read that Vince McMahon plans to try his XFL again next year, but I also thought I read something about a third new pro league with a possible team in Canton.

Anybody else see that, or is this a semi-pro league I was reading about?

I think you're referring to the Patriot Football League or something like that. Seems really small time. Doubt much comes of it

I'm enjoying it so far. It's football and that is better than watching crap like the NBA this time of year.

Plus Orlando gets former FAU and fsu players along with all the other Florida colleges. Cool to see them all playing together for people like me who follow the state.

Keith Reaser from my school Florida Atlantic had a pick 6 and got d player of the week for the league

I had heard about a California league that is or has started as well.



I hadn't really studied or researched the AAF in how it came to be and if there would be any ties to the NFL so I was surprised to see that they indeed seem to have some close ties, and that is a good thing.

I believe this league will last. The NFL is going to use it to test out rules and different ideas like you see MLB/NBA do so.

About the XFL: They will either fold quickly, become a competing league with the AAF and have a Super Bowl at the end of their seasons OR after a copule of season with the two leagues, they will pick the 10-14 cities who support the teams the most and merge under the AAF tagline

All teams are centrally owned by the league. Whether that's a good thing or not, time will tell.

SOme are speculating that the XFL put out the narrative that the AAF was having money issues and used that investment as its "proof".

Could be a big battle brewing....

San Antonio passing on Manziel I'm hoping speaks well for their confidence in Toledo's Woodside.

I think Singletary just wanted him to use as a practice tackling dummy. I can see the eyes lighting up now.
