    As a Steelers fan, I consider that an upgrade. Slash was awful.

    I didn't realize a big motivation for these leagues is strong belief there will be an NFL work stoppage in 2021 with the hope that the new leagues have a year or two to get it right before the NFL takes a nap.

    The AAF game I saw tonight (Orlando v. Atlanta) wasn't awful. Typical issues but the pace was good with the lack of TV timeouts and Spurrier pulling out the Philly special was kind of fun.

    If this AAF thing is as it claims to be -- offering the eventual possibility of in-game, every-play gambling on your phone if you so desire -- Trumpist football V. 2. 0 won't get off the ground. And I do love the conspiracy theory that the NFL is partnering with the AAF in order to develop a pool of players on stand-by if and when the NFL goes on strike in a couple of years.

    In theory, the games in this league ought to be no worse than a decent college game, right?

    First takeaway I had: Starter is still in business?

    The league wraps before NFL teams have mini-camps right? So players could use this as a "winter league."

    Seems legit.

    The way that Tweet reads it sounds like Okoye was prostituting himself
