Alliance of American Football?

Thoughts on having a "pro" team around Arkansas? Did a bit of research on the AAF seems like it could be a good thing if it is successful. The team closest to Arkansas is the Memphis Express and former Razorback Drew Morgan is on the team.

They used an interesting way of filling rosters. I think they did it regionally. So the college players that are from schools in the region around Memphis will play for Memphis and on down the line. Good way to create interest for fans close to the teams.

Yes that is how they got their players. But they did a qb only "draft" so that each team could get a decent qb. Austin Allen plays for the team in San Antonio.

So this league has some pretty big names attached to it. Bill Polian, Troy Polamolu, Hines Ward, Steve Spurrier, Jeff Fisher, Mike Singletary all involved with the league. May be worth checking out

How are they broadcasting two games on the same network at the same time?

I would assume the same way Fox does multiple NFL games on Sunday at noon and again at three thirty, regionally.

The debut went pretty good I would say. QB and OL play was pretty bad but they beat the NBA in ratings. I really liked it and hope it sticks

Yea I enjoyed it. Orlando and Arizona both came out slinging and put a lot of points up, and Birmingham defense looked really good yesterday against Memphis

I just couldn’t believe Steve Spurrier wore a real hat instead of a visor
