AAF Drew MONSTER Ratings For CBS Opener; Beats Out NBA For Viewers

  • Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night

Patriots fans might recall that he has a history of influencing rule changes; after Bill Belichick's defense manhandled the Indianapolis Colts' offense in 2004, Polian - then the Colts' president - prodded the National Football League until it restricted what defenders could do to receivers downfield.

He didn't mention San Antonio's defunct Toros, Wings, Charros, Gunslingers, Riders, Texans or Matadors, all but forgotten in the alphabet soup (WLAF, USFL, AFA, etc.) of failed football leagues. We certainly did as a staff, and I would say the Apollos had the same situation, and the officials did as well.

Hall of Famer Willie Lanier is an executive in the league office, where former Pittsburgh Steelers stars Hines Ward (head of football operations) and Troy Polamalu (head of player relations) also work. I think the fans had a good time tonight.

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.

It couldn't have been a better debut for the Orlando Apollos on Saturday.

The AAF is a brand new eight-team league which will not only showcase local and developing talent, but it will complement the NFL during the offseason.


Now the challenge for the AAF is to retain interest throughout the course of the season when the majority of games will not be played on CBS.

In overtime, each team will get the ball only once with a first and goal from the 10.

The San Diego Fleet quarterback was absolutely lit up by San Antonio Commanders linebacker Shaan Washington and never saw it coming.

"I'd just like to be a story of growth", Ebersol said. "We look at the NFL as, we're going to support your existence, let them play in your league, put content on your network". The game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.

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. This number topped the NBA's 2.524 average during the same window for the Thunder-Rockets game on ABC.

But it's a clear victory for the new league.
