Much less than a 7 days after the NFL time concluded, an totally new expert league is established to kickoff this night. The Alliance of American Football, an 8-staff league partnered with the NFL, debuts tonight with a pair of primetime video games.
The Orlando Apollos will host the Atlanta Legends, when the San Diego Fleet will journey to Texas to engage in the San Antonio Commanders equally video games start out at 8 PM, on CBS. The protection will be regionally primarily based, as are the staff rosters. The AAF seeks to allocate players to the geographic places in which they are greatest identified. And so it’s far from stunning that, of the 8 Seminoles in the Alliance, seven engage in for Orlando (which is coached by Steve Spurrier— how enjoyable is that?), when the other performs for Atlanta.
Below are the ’Noles at the moment on AAF rosters:
In addition to Orlando, Atlanta, San Diego, and San Antonio, the other groups in the Alliance are the Arizona Hotshots, Salt Lake Stallions, Birmingham Iron, and Memphis Specific.
The AAF will attempt to bridge the gap between the NFL and college or university seasons by speeding up video games. Kickoffs are absent entirely, onside-kick tries do not entail a kick at all, two-point conversion tries are needed after all touchdowns in lieu of booting an additional point, and replays are confined to a pair of mentor troubles for each staff.
