I'm curious- has anybody watched any of the Alliance of American Football? What do you think?
I have been rather impressed -against my will- with the quality of play. It's real PRO football, in my opinion better than the college game. These guys, in many cases, just needed reps and seasoning for their talent to blossom, or even become apparent. I would like to see NFL teams send their marginal talent to this league to see if they can develop. It seems to me that this is the minor league that pro football needs to develop new talent, not quite so hit-or-miss as the draft. I also like that there aren't so many penalties called as in the League. I find some of their minor rule differences intriguing, and this seems like the place to try out rules changes that the NFL Competition Committee has or will propose. I think they should expand the league a bit, and really get behind it. I think it has potential.
Apparently, I may be alone in this. After 31 views, only two votes and no replies. Oh, well.
Apparently, the NFL doesn't care too much for the AAF, either. I'm hearing that, due to lack of money, this league is almost certain to fold. Personally, I think that some sort of minor league would be beneficial to the NFL. College football is, by its very nature, a very different game.
