AAF farewell message on their website and twitter

Post by MikeMitchell » Sat Apr 06, 2019 1:00 am

The AAF finally updated their website. Gone were this weekend’s listed games and ticket info. It was replaced by the message below. No name assigned to this message.

https://twitter.com/TheAAF/status/11143 ... 70209?s=20

“This week, we made the difficult decision to suspend all football operations for the Alliance of American Football. We understand the difficulty that this decision has caused for many people and for that we are very sorry. This is not the way we wanted it to end, but we are also committed to working on solutions for all outstanding issues to the best of our ability. Due to ongoing legal processes, we are unable to comment further or share details about the decision.

We are grateful to our players, who delivered quality football and may now exercise their NFL-out clauses in our contract. We encourage them to continue pursuing their dreams and wish them the best. We are grateful to our fans, who have been true believers from the beginning, and to our world-class partners. And to the Alliance coaches and employees who devoted their valuable time and considerable talent to this venture, we are forever grateful.”

I was looking forward to seeing Johnny Football in the loudest stadium in the league. The Alamodome crowd made the games feel more real. Sad that San Antonio was up to the task and yet they were denied... Hopefully if the XFL succeeds then San Antonio gets a team.

Tragic in my view. I really wanted to see their season play out and finish. Instead of one and done. It’s as if the entire season didn’t even count. So disappointing.

It would have been interesting to see the ratings and attendance during the playoffs and even the league championship in Jerry Jones backyard.
