HELLO FOOTBALL FANS!!!

The day is finally here! The Alliance of American Football (AAF) kicks off tonight at 7:00PM!


Interesting AAF Rules that differ from the NFL:


— There will be no television timeouts and fewer full-screen commercial breaks. That, along with a 35-second play clock (the NFL’s is 40 seconds) and some of the changes listed below, could shave 30 minutes off an NFL game’s traditional three-hour running time.

— No extra points. Every touchdown will be followed by a two-point conversion attempt. Field goals are still an option in regulation, however.

— No kickoffs. Each team starts a possession after a score or at the start of a half at their 25-yard line.

— Instead of onside kicks, which are not allowed, teams will attempt the equivalent of a fourth-and-12 play from their 28-yard line. A conversion means it keeps the ball. These will only be allowed when a team is trailing by at least 17 points or for either team in the last five minutes of a game, according to the Associated Press.

— There will be a ninth member of the officiating crew called a “SkyJudge,” who will sit in the press box and “use real-time technology to correct clear errors involving player safety anytime during a game, and pass interference inside of five minutes left in the fourth quarter,” the AP reported.

— Overtime is different: Each team will get the ball only once, first and goal from the 10, and they have to score a touchdown and go for two (field goals are not allowed in the extra period). Games can end in a tie.

Since there is no Chicago Aaf team maybe the admins could make a new Memphis Express section for us since it's the closest team

Legends have the best roster because they have the most names I recognize. Denard Robinson going to light the AAF up. With that said, I guess I'll root for Memphis cuz Singletary. :bearbang:

Seem weird there is not really a midwest team, the most rabid fans with the least to do in the country.
I dunno, theres a ton of died in the wool, hardened core, ride and dye Memphis fans around me who have had Express rabies since the franchise started, and I live in the SW side of Chicagoland.

My neighbor and his family all had matching red and blue Memphis gear on today at the clubhouse for our weekly neighborhood bunco league.
