The AAF is essentially the new Arena Football League. Football season was over.

That's right. The AFF also has their own version of the Super Bowl, let me introduce the AAF Championship.

A stint in the AAF also wouldn't hurt Kaepernick's chances of returning to the NFL because, although players do sign three-year, non-guaranteed contracts worth $250,000 each, they are allowed to leave the league to go to the NFL. After Week 1 of the new Alliance, it may be safe to say nobody is laughing now.

Meanwhile, what helps the AAF surrounds an infrastructure at the executive level with links to the NFL, including Bill Polian, Pro Football Hall of Famer Troy Polamalu, Hines Ward, Jared Allen and Justin Tuck, among others.

"We were pleasantly surprised that people not only wanted to see football in the alternative, but they were looking for a new way to engage with it". You can also give them the promise they will get paid in a few years if they choose to go to the National Football League, without being subject to the rookie wage scale rules and franchise tags and tenders, and with the ability to pick their teams. The "Orlando Special" was executed perfectly, and Gilbert's face will be all over the team I am convinced will garner the most attention over the next two months. There will be names you will recognize like former first round pick Trent Richardson who plays for Birmingham.

As for the Champions League , Solskjaer said the club will aim to get to halftime of the second leg with at least a 1-0 lead. It has to be one that we are going to learn from.

If you turned on the television this weekend and found a football game, you were probably a little confused.

3-This league was tailor-made for Christian Hackenberg, until it wasn't.

Quiet weekend for five former Bucs receivers now playing in AAF: Donteea Dye, Freddie Martino, Kaelin Clay, Kenny Bell, Josh Huff combined for two catches for 7 yards on 10 targets. "I knew this city would stand up and do a good job".

4-Coaching in the AAF is going to be about the haves and the have-nots.

Considering Steve Spurrier is coaching in Orlando, that is a given. Being able to hear the booth official and the referee communicating with one another regarding a review is something that fans could only imagine previously. Not only did football fans love being able to just watch football, but fans loved the pace of the game, the greater transparency into refereeing calls, and the lack of rules created to protect the quarterback. I find it hard to believe mid-week Mike Singletary is the first one in the office and the first one out in Memphis watching tape, but Rick Neuheisel likely is. The main question about these leagues is will they work? Not only that, but the Alamodome hosted 27,857 fans on Saturday night, which was the highest attendance of any home game on opening weekend. As a sophomore QB at MI back in 2010, Robinson set the single-season Division I FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback and became the only player in (NCAA) history to both pass and rush for 1,500 yards. However, I give the edge to the Apollos for their free-scoring offence.
