Default OMG, I didn't realize the AAF would be this bad!

Former New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg will play for the American Alliance of Football, which debuts Saturday.

The Alliance of American Football (AAF) will kick off its inaugural season on Saturday. The opening weekend of action will feature four games and all eight teams.

Several notable former NFL players will suit up for the new venture, including former Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg, former Giants safety Will Hill and former Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff.

Interesting...maybe because it’s a developmental league for the NFL, they’ve eliminated kickoffs to reduce the chance that guys will get hurt.

Read somewhere that their goal is to have football that’s better than the college level but admittedly below the NFL level. Literally as though it was all second-stringers and third stringers (because, well, that’s basically what the league is)

And then there are the team names. Several are OK because there is at least some tie in to the city or region...Memphis Express, San Diego Fleet, Birmingham Iron, even the Salt Lake Stallions (a vague reference I suppose to Joseph Smith and his male descendants mythical capacity to maintain a state of permanent erection and a limitless supply of precious bodily fluid with which to impregnate anything over the age of 12.)

Then come the names dreamed up by certified assholes...the Atlanta Legends (General Sherman's uninvited visit ?), the Arizona Hotshots (hordes of 75 year old men with silver drool cups strapped to their chins)and the Orlando Apollos. The Apollos? Hello! (But who can blame an enterprising young "suit" for mistakenly thinking that the rockets are launched from Disney World rather than that whatever Canaveral something or other place. 60 miles away?)

With genius minds like this at the helm, nothing can stop the AAF.

I just tuned in and see that the best college analyst in football Gary Danielson is doing the game. It's hard to believe that this league got him but he could help make this interesting I guess.
