    Ahh, nice, thanks. I know Josh Johnson had signed with the AAF before signing with Washington but that was before the AAF season technically started, so that makes sense.

    Definitely a lot of former NFL guys at the top and if it's ratings continue to compete with NBA games, that could be a positive. But we'll see how it holds up in the near future. I think as the guys get more experience with each other the play will get better.

    I love how there are mics all over and you get to hear so much of what's going on during the game. Certainly TV spectator friendly!

    Being from San Antonio, when I heard about the AAF team I was curious. Problem is the market here and domination of money spent on swag and tickets by the Spurs fan base. We have tried in the past to represent professional football, but it never lasts more than a year or two. In the 80s it was the San Antonio Gunslingers, in the early 90s we had the San Antonio Raiders. We even gave Arena Football a shot... no momentum. I fully support the effort, I will watch if I can, but I don't have high hopes for longevity.

    I have to ask how much the start of this league was rushed if it essentially goes belly up after about 6-7 weeks? This must have been a poor business plan from the start that someone kept pushing forward before it was ready. The concept seems good but I honestly didn't know this league existed until I saw a game was televised on CBS a week after the Super Bowl.

    Based on the couple of articles I read, there is speculation he only invested for the purpose of getting the technology they were developing for online betting and that he didn't care about the league at all. I read something indicating that it is technically illegal for him to shut down the league for the sole purpose of stripping the assets but I don't know any specific details if that was his intention or not.
