Alliance of American Football debuts with strong ratings

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night

It clearly wasn't the National Football League, as anyone watching San Antonio's 15-6 victory over San Diego quickly discovered when Shaan Washington delivered a monster hit on Fleet quarterback Mike Bercovici.

There are 8 teams in the AAF, with rosters consisting of local players.

"That was a great atmosphere", said the league's other co-founder, longtime NFL executive Bill Polian. NFL Network owns the AAF primetime rights moving forward.

The Spurrier known for his fun-and-gun offense dialed it up immediately, calling a deep post throw on the first play of the game. The play clock will only run 35 seconds, five seconds shorter than the NFL.

Instead of kicking an extra point, teams have to attempt a two-point conversion after every touchdown. Apollos head coach Steve Spurrier spoke about the crowd after the game. He later played professionally for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976.

He led Florida to a national championship in 1996, left the Gators five years later to coach the Washington Redskins for two seasons, then ended a long college career when he walked away from a decade-long stay at SC six games into the 2015 season.




The team is packed with talent from all over the state of Florida.

What this means is if a player has already been on the Steelers roster at some point most recently, the Iron have dibs so to speak on the player for their roster.

He didn't mention San Antonio's defunct Toros, Wings, Charros, Gunslingers, Riders, Texans or Matadors, all but forgotten in the alphabet soup (WLAF, USFL, AFA, etc.) of failed football leagues.

Now the challenge for the AAF is to retain interest throughout the course of the season when the majority of games will not be played on CBS. The CBS broadcast out-rated ABC's Saturday night broadcast of the Rockets vs. Thunder.

The league's action continues Sunday and lasts 10 weeks. TNT and Bleacher Report Live will also broadcast on AAF regular season game and one playoff game.

There was only one touchdown, scored by Commanders running back Kenneth Farrow II late in the game, but plenty of sacks (six) and interceptions (three) of San Diego quarterbacks. The Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, and Memphis Express will have to share their town with an NFL Franchise.
