Alliance Of American Football Debut Draws Millions Of Viewers On CBS

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Other startup football leagues like the USFL and XFL did fantastic ratings right away, and then those fizzled quickly.

The 23-year-old Hackenberg also forgot he was mic'd up during the game, offering a selection of profanities.

One of the brilliant things that the AAF has done in trying to make the league get off the ground with a solid following is their allocation of players to teams. "Now it's just about going out and playing". The team ended up falling 26-0 to the Birmingham Iron. "They saw enough good plays, especially after the first quarter". The team will be coached by, coaching legend Steve Spurrier. Here we go again? The game was vintage Spurrier, with a mic catching him delivering the play call to the quarterback with the conclusion: "Tell him to catch it this time". But with only one exhibition game in the books, it's anyone's guess what the outcome of this match-up will be.

The Orlando Apollo's will play at Spectrum Stadium and will host five home games here in Orlando throughout the 2019 Inaugural season. We'll see if the Arizona Hotshots and the Salt Lake Stallions can continue that on Sunday as they wrap up the first week of action in The Alliance.

EA host a disappointed financial call, as Battlefield V underperforms
Zombies and Need for Speed titles, and to add Star Wars Jedi: "Fallen Order to our sports titles in the fall". Could it be a Titanfall MOBA game? It's still set in the same universe, but it's not Titanfall 3 .

Game times will vary, but for the spring semester, football fans can enjoy a historical season watching teams chalk full of players looking for their shot at the big leagues. Hackenberg was waived by Oakland in June, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, completed 7 of 16 passes for 69 yards and two INTs in a preseason game against the Jets and was released the following day. Fleet general manager Dave Boller was clear about his intention for Johnson, which creates an interesting dynamic for the new league. His first head coaching job was a three-year stint in the mid-1980s with the USFL's Tampa Bay Bandits.

The problem with the XFL, however, that the AAF seems to be avoiding based on their first couple games, was the quality and gimmicky nature of the product on the field.

He smiled when he was asked about being unbeaten in his first game with six different teams.
