The NFL Should Ally with The Alliance of American Football

Friday, 23 Mar, 2018

WWE impresario Vince McMahon will relaunch his league in 2020. "It even hides a number we focused on: millions of fans who stop watching the top five sports in America when football is off the air".

That's because the Alliance of American Football is set to launch in February 2019 - the week after Super Bowl LIII.

Qualified players can begin contacting the league via AAF.com. If that name sounds familiar, it should.

Ebersol is the son of Dick Ebersol, who was Vince McMahon's partner in the previous iteration of the XFL. The new professional football league was created by Charlie Ebersol and was announced on Tuesday. Several retired players are supporting the new adventure too.

Hines Ward, Jared Allen and Troy Polamalu are all involved, and Polamalu himself will be the head of player relations.

The league is hoping to draw talent from the wealth of high-level college players who don't make the NFL. "Our investors here understand that it's a seven-to-10-year plan".

One of the most important things for a new league in today's market is a television deal. CBSSports will televise one game per week.

CBS will air the first game and title game, with other games appearing on CBS Sports Network and the league's app, NBC Sports said. Rosters will be culled from National Football League cuts to the 53-man maximum after preseason, which Polian calls "the core of our constituency"; collegians who have gone undrafted, including underclassmen who have lost any remaining eligibility; players looking to return to the sport; and free agents from the CFL or elsewhere.

As for the teams, the eight cities represented by the league will be announced during the next three months, following which, regional drafts will take place. And the XFL was lambasted mostly for low-quality play because using National Football League cast-offs does not make for compelling competition no matter how many gimmicks are employed. That's right-The Alliance of American Football is coming.

And here's one everybody but a placekicker will love: all extra points are 2-point conversion plays from the 2-yard line. A 10-game regular season, played mostly on Sundays, will be followed by a four-team playoff. The solution: The team that scored a touchdown can get the ball on its own 35 yard line in a 4th-and-10 situation. Play clocks will be 30 seconds, there will be no tv timeouts and fewer commercials on games broadcast on CBS and livestreamed on the AAF website. "This is a marketplace of tens of millions of Americans who have been telling us for decades that they want to see high-quality football longer than the football season". Players have our commitment that we will seek the highest degree of safety and our support as we continue to invest in their success off the field with post-football career scholarships and financial wellness programs.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Daily, the league is tweaking some traditional football rules - including the elimination of kickoffs.
