Discussion in 'The National Football League' started by OzzO, Nov 28, 2018.
They have some good coaches. Mike Martz is the coach of the San Diego team.
There will be one game televised each Saturday and Sunday on CBSSN. I have DirecTV so I get that channel as part of my service. This is being billed as a development league. I'll watch just to give me something to fill the time until next NFL season.
No kickoffs, just start at the 25. 4th & 12 from your 28 to replace onside kick attempts.
That's interesting. Probably better odds of making that than trying to make a ball bounce all over the place and recover it.
8% recovery last year. I'll take the 4th & 12.
From your own 28? Must think your defense sucks
I mean generally if you're going for an onside kick, it's because you need to score again quickly and don't have enough time to waste with your defense being on the field. So if you don't get recover it the game is all but lost anyways.
I like the idea, my only issue with it is it would get rid of those random surprise onside kicks teams try like once every 4 years. Think Sean Payton's gutsy onside kick to open the 2nd half would have never happened with this rule
Yeah, call me a snob or whatever, but i'm not interested in watching reject NFL football players play. If the NFL gets that bad, I'll go watch the Sachatuwan roughriders..
How is that not NFL rejects?
Do you not watch college either?
Lol it is...i'm just saying if the NFL gets to the point where it's unbearable to watch, I'll go Canadian football league before i go XFL 2.0.
I watch, but mostly Big 12 & the high profile games & UH games if they're on TV. I may watch a game here & there if there's a particular player i like.
This is not XFL 2.0 that will launch next year I believe
Then this league sounds more up your alley TBH, 1 it's in the spring time so its not like you have to choose between the NFL, college or this. 2. you say you watch mainly the big 12 and UH, so I take it you are more of a regional fan? In this league they have a regional draft so the players you've been watching in the Big 12 and at UH who aren't quite good enough to make it to the NFL will be playing for the SA team as well as some ex Texans
Idk I think it's a cool concept for the off season. People have been complaining that the NFL needs like a triple A league so some guys can continue to develop, this seems like it can be that to me even though they aren't associated
There are lots of talented football players that just are not NFL talent, they can put on a good show. I've always enjoyed watching these spring leagues, but they never last and I don't expect this one or the XFL to last either.
However, you're not watching this league except on CBS Sports Network which you need cable or a CBS All Access subscription. They're only broadcasting one game from the opening weekend and that's all you'll see of 'em without CBS Sport Network access. There is no way they will survive like that, they need more TV time across a broader range of options. I don't see them selling the tickets they'll need to in order to keep the league afloat.
what about streaming?
there will probably be illegal streams, but no revenue there. CBS all access is their streaming app, but requires a paid subscription
Nothing about that on the AAF website.
so when I was reading on their TV deal, it mentioned the games would be available on a free streaming service. So the AAF will have it's own app that let's you live stream the games for free as well as having integrated fantasy games in the app. B/R live will also be streaming 1 game a week.
This has nothing to do with how to watch it, but saw this while reading on the league and found it very cool
"players would earn a year's scholarship in post-secondary education for each season of play"
This page on the AAF website lays out their first years TV schedule and where you can get the games. I didn't even know that Bleacher Reports had their own sports streaming service.
