Sort of surprised at the entertainment value of these games.  Much easier to watch a game in this format. Practice squad talent level, but it’s real football with much less of a prima dona feel to it-good for fans of the actual game of football vs celebrity laden football.  It’s almost a little weird knowing they make less than I do.  Good that a lot of these guys are getting a chance for a 2nd chance to move up to the next level as well. 

The monetary compensation makes it a lot easier to watch for me. knowing none of them are making superstar money is great.

ATL up 3-0

im loving how short the commercial breaks are. 

Yeah that won’t last long.  As soon as they get a following, the money to be made throwing commercials in every 5 seconds will be too hard to pass up

They will run out of QB.

 

I suspect we'll be seeing a good number of dual-threat college quarterbacks who are great football players overall but who clearly aren't NFL-caliber passers.    Guys like former Alabama QB Blake Sims and former Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight, both of whom are on AAF rosters.   

 

Let's face it:   the AAF won't be getting the top-tier passers or receivers out of college.   Due to the lack of premiere talent at those positions, we probably won't see teams throwing the ball 40+ times per game.    Offenses will be balanced out of necessity;  I expect we'll see a lot more teams with run-oriented offenses as compared to the NFL.

I watched a little. I won’t bother watching again.

 

It’s minor league football. If you enjoy that, fine. I’m sure it’s more fun to go in person for something to do, like going to an old Nashville Kats game. But I didn’t watch Arena Football on TV, either...

Didn’t make it through the whole game. It wasn’t bad football. It just wasn’t great football. It was like watching the 4th quarter of the 4th preseason game except for a whole game. 

 

The SD team was suppose to have Josh Johnson as their QB. He was the #1 pick in the QB draft. 

 

I’ll check it out again but I’m not blocking off my calendar to watch a game.
