AAF Opens With Strong Ratings In Debut Saturday

AAF Opens With Strong Ratings In Debut Saturday

Assuming the new league continues, it would be most likely that former Bears players would end up with the Arizona franchise.

He then spent a month on the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad before attending the Alliance of American Football's quarterback camp. The Orlando Apollo's are a member of The Alliance of American Football; this league consists of eight teams from the East and West coast.

The AAF has implemented a rule that says defenses will only be able to rush a maximum of five players on blitzes, in an effort to promote more offense.

There are no extra points; every touchdown is followed by a two-point conversion attempt.

After starting five games for the Eagles, Brooks ruptured his right quadriceps tendon, an injury that put an end to his National Football League career.

Instead of kickoffs, which the league decided slow down the game and create too many injuries, the ball will simply start on the 25-yard line after each score or at the beginning of each half.

The new league has left fans across the country trying to decide where they should pledge their allegiance.

Ebersol, a filmmaker, is a son of Dick Ebersol, the former NBC Sports president who co-founded the short-lived XFL with WWE chairman Vince McMahon. For those of us already in withdrawals from the lack of Pittsburgh Steelers' football, it might be a nice filler.

So, sadly for AAF fans, they will never see a moment such as this.

According to TVByTheNumbers, almost 3.2 million people watched the pregame and 2.91 million stuck with the broadcast for the actual action between the Orlando Apollos vs. Atlanta Legends and the San Antonio Commanders vs. San Diego Fleet.

Former Patriots listed on AAF rosters include wide receivers Devin Lucien and Brian Tyms.

And, there was just enough razzle-dazzle and imaginative play-calling in the Apollos' 40-6 victory over the Legends to remind the faithful, who can buy season tickets for as little as $75, of the good old days. "It's not the economic engine of this business year one". CBS Sports Network will broadcast a game once a week throughout the duration of the 10-week season. The Iron lead 9-0 after three quarters and have a tip-drill interception of Express quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who has struggled to find any consistency in his career following his breakout freshman season at Penn State.
