AAF (Alliance of American Football) inaugural season starts tonight. Who's watching?

On the kickoffs I would say just give the kicking team the option to kick it or give it the opponent on their own 25 (or even on their own 20).  That way, almost always the teams will choose not to kick, but the option is still there if they need an onside kick.

They already have their alternative in place for the onside kicks

Both are low-percentage plays....but a  team’s chances of converting on 4th & 12 are significantly higher than their chances of recovering an onside kick.

Yeah, I honestly like the onside kick more than this alternative.. I feel that the situation here is a bit too much in favor of the team that is down

Agree. Especially against a defense that can only rush 5. I wonder where the opposing team gets the ball if they don’t convert it.

That sounds great, but the more viewers they bring in the more commercials they'll push.

Maybe they should make it 4th & 20 then.

I'll definitely be watching. The NFL badly needs a farm system and this league has some great potential as a guinea pig of sorts to try different ideas.  

That’s the interesting part. I remember the USFL having instant replay before the NFL did.

I feel like you really missed a good pun opportunity with your username. Should be “Deceptishawn”

Doesn't that provide enough proof?  It never works out.  They may look exciting at first, but ultimately people know it's not the same thing as the real NFL. 

 

It's like kissing your sister.  And I'm not talking about a super hot step sister.  I'm talking the real deal.  You know, incest.

It’s a fourth down play.  If they don’t convert it, the balls goes over on downs. 

 

I suspect it will be more interesting than an onside kick, which is basically straight dumb luck.  4th & 12 gives a team a better chance of converting and retaining possession at the 40....but if they don’t,  the other team get possession inside the 40.  It’s just a different risk-vs-reward  opportunity.  The payoff is easier to achieve, but the penalty for failing is greater.
