    • no PAT
    • no kick offs
    • 30 second clock
    • no onside kick (the equivalent will be the team gets the ball at their own 35 and its 4th and 10)


      Founder Charlie Ebersol joined The Dan Patrick Show Wednesday to explain how the AAF will transform its game to improve the experience for fans.



    • “We’re looking at changing plays where either the fan engagement is low, or [for] safety [reasons].

      For example, we’re getting rid of the kickoff for two reasons. One, it’s regularly considered one of the most dangerous plays in professional football. But the second reason is, if you look at almost any study of fans, they say the most boring play in a game is a kickoff. The least amount of stuff happens, it’s least likely to produce something interesting. So we’re getting rid of the kickoff, we’re going to start with the ball on the 25.
      Obviously, if you get rid of the kickoff, you have to get rid of the onside kick. So what we’re doing… if you want to go for the equivalent of the onside kick, we will give you your ball on your own 35 and you’ll be facing 4th-and-10. If you convert, you keep going. If you don’t, you’re giving the ball back to someone knocking on your own red zone.
      We’re getting rid of the extra point. We want people to play on the field, so they’re going to have to go for two points.
      …. We’re going to take the play clock down to 30 seconds, so it reflects what’s happening in the game already. Most NFL offenses are getting to the line in 17, 20 seconds.”

    This is basically NFL Europe, except in the US. A Farm system for the NFL. With serious NFL backing. Should do well, better than Arena, and certainly better than whatever Travesty Vince McMahon comes up with next year.
    It'll be a real time laboratory for the NFL.

    Spurrier
    Martz

    ...some quality pedigrees here

    I just wish a league would form that would have gameplay similar to 70-95

    Less flags, more trench, completed passes are actually earned and guys can hit

    Might be possible w 8 teams and nfl retreads/ college greats

    Manziel and Kaep QB teams in San Antonio and San Diego

    Tony Romo and Cutler QB in Madison and Louisville

    Terrel Owens WR in Akron
    Ray Rice RB in Newark

    IDK maybe a league w residency requirements could be interesting as well.

    Gotta be from MN to play for MN, etc

    Game NFL has isn't doing it anymore

    Should be very interesting from a wagering aspect. Lines will be very fluid early I'm sure - Looks like the rules will lead to higher scores but who knows. Could be some huge money-making opportunties if you get the right info. Line movements will be huge and we'll see which books actually take action and how fast will they adjust.

    Wow, at least if you are trying to pull of the improbable, you're guaranteed that last possession.

    Atlanta Legends at Orlando Apollos (-5.5), O/U 44.5

    The coaching in this matchup is fascinating. Orlando is coached by Steve Spurrier, while Michael Vick is Atlanta's offensive coordinator. However, Vick wasn't even in San Antonio for most of training camp because of media obligations he had ahead of Super Bowl LIII. This is a fun quarterback duel, too, with Atlanta's Aaron Murray and Orlando's Garrett Gilbert. I've gotten the vibe from preseason scrimmages that Orlando is better, but we'll see if that carries over. Also, despite the fun offensive names involved, Week 1 is a tough moment to start clicking on all cylinders.
    Pick: Atlanta +5.5, Under 44.5


    San Diego Fleet at San Antonio Commanders (-5), O/U 43.5

    Word is that San Antonio might have the best offense in the alliance. But, again, how much of that shows up in Week 1? No one is reinventing the wheel, but bringing teams together and introducing some new terminology in this amount of time could slow things down. San Diego linebacker A.J. Tarpley has been getting some buzz out of camp. He could be a problem. Ultimately, though, I haven't gotten the impression San Diego has found a quality replacement at quarterback for Josh Johnson, who was picked up by Washington.
    Pick: San Antonio -5, Under 43.5


    Memphis Express at Birmingham Iron (-1), O/U 40.5

    You'll notice that every home team is favored, but Birmingham has the lowest projected win total of all eight teams, so this is the closest you'll get to a pick 'em. The Iron feel strong about their power running game, led by former Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson, but we'll see if they have anything else to complement it.
    Pick: Memphis +1, Under 40.5


    Salt Lake Stallions at Arizona Hotshots (-4.5), O/U 42.5

    The preseason favorites to win the championship will close out Week 1 and this one should be a lot of fun. Westgate SuperBook feels pretty strongly about Salt Lake (the Stallions have the next-highest odds behind Arizona to win the AAF title at 4/1) and the win total of 4.5 is only two behind Arizona. With the Hotshots, you're definitely getting interesting quarterback play with John Wolford and Trevor Knight. Arizona feels it can win with both of them.
    Pick: Arizona -4.5, Over 42.5

    Maybe the competition will be half way decent? Man... if someone could come out with a football product that keeps you going.... nearly year round until the NFL kicks off again.... that would be brilliant.

    If it's not Salt Lake, you're looking at 12.5% over ten weeks...

    Sat 4/27 40007 Salt Lake Stallions win AAF +500
    8:00PM 40008 Field wins Alliance of American Football -800

    But then again, I think the 2-10 Washington team made it to the Arena Football playoffs then won out, taking it all.

    So I guess you never know.
