#RIP Alliance of American Football

My first thought goes to the folks from Birmingham AL, who have lost so many teams over the years, including the Birmingham Thunderbolts of the original XFL. Why do so many teams come and go from such a football mecca. Hopefully, one day it will work out for Birmingham. The fans of San Antonio must ...

If Dundon folds the AAF, just wait for the AAF fans to somehow place the blame on the XFL. :P
Oh, I hope not. At least one of our discussion board members may crank up the rant.

Re: Redblacks offensive coordinator Jaime Elizondo resigns, plans to take XFL job

Said Campbell: “Usually people call — one head coach to another – and say, ‘Listen, I’m thinking about hiring someone.’ It catches you even more off guard because there’s no communication or anything. You kind of feel duped, it’s like a choreographed move to kind of spring it on you. I’ve never hea...

Re: Testing the Play Clock in the Spring League

It is nice to see the XFL sharing these details with the fans. It further demonstrates they are serious about the football this time around.

Re: What the XFL can learn from the AAF?

There is even an article written by an XFLBOARD person that suggested the league call the championship the Million Dollar Game, and then a few weeks later they changed the name. :o That was the Masked Prognosticator, an anonymous user who posted a prediction each week, and wagering tips based on Ve...

Re: Apollos fired their radio broadcast team before last week’s game because the AAF hadn’t paid the bill

It sounds like it could be mismanagement rather than a cash flow problem. Although, when companies are in trouble, the first sign is they stop paying their bills.

Re: Oliver Luck talks #XFL gimmicks, head trauma, the AAF and gambling

As far as XFL news is concerned, this is the best I could do. :D

Luck made some interesting points here, such as referring to football as a "religion" and the stadium as a "cathedral."

Re: Johnny Manziel signs agreement with AAF

I watched a lot of Manziel in Montreal; it went better than most people seem to think. I watched too. When he started in Montreal, there was a buzz as everyone wanted to see what he was going to do. And you are right, he didn't do much at first. But I think television rating were excellent. When he...
