AAF football
I am enjoying watching AAF football...I think the league has a lot of potential

Add about 4 more teams and you have a good league and decent continuation of the football season, which is way too short

RE: AAF football
Thinking they need some specific NFL buy-in that isn't so nebulous, so that fans have a team to support.

Maybe for instance, an agreement could be reached so that the players on NFL practice squads and who sign futures deals at the end of seasons are automatically the domains of one of the 8 teams... so, each of the AAF teams get affiliations with four teams from four different divisions, and it only makes business sense, that first priority is to match teams that might have some more local appeal than others--e.g., Atlanta, of course, would get the Falcons as one of their four, and Tempe, of course, would get the Cardinals as one of theirs.

Here's my best attempt to illustrate:

RE: AAF football
AAF should try a deal with DAZN and try a merger with XFL in the future. That would be kinda funny.

RE: AAF football
Apparently even a minor-league football operation requires a lot of money, and the AAF cash flow isn't that great -- they needed a $250 million investment last week just to make payroll.

Quote:On​ Feb. 9, the Alliance​ of​ American Football (AAF)​ had a successful​ debut,​ drawing about 3.25​ million​ viewers on CBS, a number​ that​ surprisingly​​ exceeded those from a prominent NBA game (Thunder-Rockets) being played at the same time.

Less than a week later, multiple sources told The Athletic, the new league’s existence was in jeopardy.

According to the sources, there was one enormous problem, one that became obvious even before the AAF’s second weekend (Feb. 16-17) of games: The league was running short on cash, and quickly. Without new investors, there was a good chance it was going to miss payroll last Friday.

“Without a new, nine-figure investor, nobody is sure what would have happened,” one source said. “You can always tell people their checks are going to be a little late, but how many are going to show up on the weekend for games when they don’t see anything hit their bank accounts on Friday?”

On Tuesday, multiple sources told The Athletic, the AAF will announce that Carolina Hurricanes majority owner Tom Dundon, a self-made billionaire from Dallas, has become that nine-figure investor. Dundon will be introduced as the league’s new chairman after last week’s commitment of $250 million enabled the AAF to meet its obligations.

I would like to know the league's project. A lof of these billionaires get into this kind of business for ego.
