GSG posted a topic in Other SportsI didn't want to keep bumping the Mike Riley thread in the Husker Football section, so I'm starting this thread to discuss the AAF itself. https://aaf.com/ This league was started by Charlie Ebersol, son of Dick Ebersol. Dick will be on the Board of Directors. Bill Polian will be "Head of Football" along with being a co-founder of the league. Troy Polamalu will be the Head of Player Relations. Other names in the head office include Hines Ward, Jared Allen, and Justin Tuck. Rules: 50-man rosters with some selected by a territorial draft. No TV timeouts and 60% fewer commercials. They are aiming for a game length of 150 minutes. Only 2-point conversions, no extra point kicks. No kickoffs. Offenses start on their own 25-yard line. In lieu of an onside kick, the "kicking team" can attempt one scrimmage play from their own 35-yard line but must gain a first down (10 yards as per usual). 30 second play clock. Only replays used will be on coaches challenges. Each team gets 2 per game. Someone asked about Tim Lewis. His career has mostly been as a position coach in the NFL with several teams. He was also the D-coordinator for the Steelers (2000-03) and the Giants (2004-06).
