Spurrier returns to sideline, wins AAF opener

Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Consider this the Bears fans' guide to hopping on the bandwagon and picking an AAF team to root for. J. K. McKay, the head of football operations for the Alliance, told Pro Football Talk that the league will put an emphasis on keeping the players within the area they played college football. We certainly did as a staff, and I would say the Apollos had the same situation, and the officials did as well.

The 73-year-old coach returned to the sideline for the first time since abruptly walking away from the college game in 2015, bringing along an entertaining style of offense that didn't disappoint an announced crowd of 20,191 for the AAF opener between the Orlando Apollos and Atlanta Legends. "We started with nothing and we're going to open it up on Saturday with eight teams playing what I think will be pretty good football".

And fans - at least those in Orlando, Florida, who showed up in the rain for Steve Spurrier's debut in the new league Saturday night - are eager to buy.

Other teams have more players with Bears connections right now, but the Hotshots roster has former third-round pick Will Sutton, who last played in Chicago in 2016. If a team is trailing by 17 points, or there is five minutes or less left in the fourth quarter, they can opt to get the ball on their own 28-yard line and try to convert a 4th-and-12.

The San Diego Fleet quarterback was absolutely lit up by San Antonio Commanders linebacker Shaan Washington and never saw it coming. Here's how the three-phase player allocation process works in the AAF.

"I'd just like to be a story of growth", Ebersol said. Be sure to go to there site and support them. For the rest of the regular season, the AAF will be on TNT, NFL Network, CBS Sports Network or the streaming B/R Live service, and it's fair to assume that none of those outlets will ever get 2.9 million viewers for an AAF game.

The Alliance has built a proprietary tech platform that will allow for a real-time, rewards-based system of integrated gaming and in-game wagering for fans in states where sports gambling is legalized. To put that into perspective, the National Basketball Association game on ABC drew 2.524 million viewers during that same time slot.

Nevertheless, this is great news for the AAF and bodes well for the future of the league.
