>I heard there are heathens in this thread? You're not spreading heresy, are you, mortals?
So I added 2 teams and actually made confrences. there's now 20 teams (that was I could make 4 quarters)I added Spokane and Colorado Springs because they both fit and they were kinda needed in this situation.Spokane is mostly a great spot with the ony issue being they just need to build up their stadium a LITTLE more, it can hold 30,000 but with it being simply 2 large bleechers bug into a hill, it would be nice if they made a horseshoe to kinda complete it and make it look more professional. But if a team were to move into Spokane, it would probably be done and would be a VERY simple thing to do.
>your team>why?>favorite offensive player>favorite defensie player>Thoughts about their game>expectations for next week>something nice about the team they playedHotshotsStudied my HS sophomore year in AZ so I follow all AZ teamsJohn WolfordSterling MooreThe offense was good, specially the passing game, but the running game has to improve. The defense has to improve even though I'm happy with the 2 turnovers and allowing only 6 points on the second half. The special teams were good, not much to complain.The Stallions have a very good OL and could potentially be the best running team in the League, I expect to see them on playoffs as 2nd in the West.
>>90851341SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS
>San JoseHuge city, the Raiders leaving to LV will leave a void in the area that could be exploited.>PortlandDecently big city with a large Seacocks following. Giving them a team could be a good business. They could milk the Oregon, Washington and Oregon State players to make a solid team.>AlbuquerqueNot gonna lie, I had Boise and El Paso in mind too. Kinda picked Albuquerque to give NM a bone.>Oklahoma CityThe University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are pretty good most of the time so they have a nice farm of players. Also to give OK a bone.>OmahaCould be switched by Lincoln desu. UNL used to be elite as fuck and they have a good football culture.>Stl LoiusThe Rams left so fuck it lets give them a team.>ColumbusOhio is the cradle of football so giving Columbus a team seems very appropriate.>Virginia BeachNorfolk works too. Virginian football fans are pretty much split into Redskins, Ravens and Panthers so giving them a team all could follow could turn into a good business.
>>90851731You are BIG gayMy map is quite a bit better>>90851694
>>90851758Not entirely bad, but for a 20 teams map it could be better
>tfw Atlanta Myths up next>tfw Nelson confirmed starting
>>90851341people keep commenting on population, but if this is going to be a smaller league overall, why not go to smaller markets and build smaller stadiums? like whats wrong with have a few 30-40k stadiums, we dont need 70k+ stadiums for this league.
>>90851891I think the idea is to have a decent stadium. You don't want a high school looking stadium for a pro leauge.
>>90851341WEEK ONE RESULTS:San Diego Fleet - 6San Antonio Commanders - 15Atlanta Legends - 6Orlando Apollos - 40Memphis Express - 0Birmingham Iron - 26Salt Lake Stallions - 22Arizona Hotshots - 38

>>90851920I just think something like Dignity Health Sports Park is a better overall idea of what this league should encompass, you build a smaller capacity stadium, but focus on quality. This league cant support every ton having a metlife and Mercedes benz like stadium but i can support a lot of soccer size stadiums that are built to the quality of Mercedes Benz stadium.
>>90851960Stallions win by less than a FGHotshots win by 25+Pollos win by a small margingFleet win by 10+
>>90851353I think Boise is too small What about Honolulu ? It’s a big city
>>90851943>Anything hispanic>watch as nobody cares for the LA Rams and Chargers>Thinking they'll care about a team in Albuquerque, El Paso>adding cities which don't have a stadium like Milwaukee, Grand Rapids, and Des Moines>never explaining why Spokane and Mobile needed to be removedI feel thers's some... bias behind this.
>>90851697Hello senpai, was at the inaugural shots game Good times
>>90852012cost of travel would be too much on the leagueAlso Boise is actually pretty decent sized considering some of the teams that play in the NFL, Boise has about 900,000 in it's greater metro area and considering there isn't much to do, it could actually give people in that community something to do in the spring.
>>90851943spokane had an arena football team for a while the shock theres infrastructure in place to expand aaf to it
>>90852002>Stallions winning IN BIRMINGHAMyou are but a fool!
>>90851843nelson will correct the ship
>>90851960Why is Memphis so shit?
>>90852044Well that arena is a bit too small, I was looking at this stadium on the outskirts of town and if they just close this gap, the stadium would be just about perfect.
>>90852059their coach is uniroincally mike singletarry
>>90852059Mike Singletary.Worst athletes in the AAF also. They have a 400 lb dlineman who can barely move

I wonder why AAF is so comfy?
can anyone redpill me on the opening weekend? Teams looked pretty good from what I saw. Is it better quality than what NFL Europe was (or wasn’t, rather)?

Is there a discord for the AFF btw?

>>90852728You know the fleet is a losing fanbaseIn fact, they have lost 100% of their games.
>>90852728>not being a shots fan What are you doing m8?
>>90852652and the Dallas Cowboys play in Aarlington. It doesn't matter where they play. I'm just saying if you put a team there and call them the Virginia Beach Neptunes, not only are you tapping into a very diverse and culture hungry market, but you also get some urban (black) appeal from the fact that the team shares a name with Virginia Beach native Pharell's first music group, 'The Neptunes'. Hell Pharell may even endorse this team seeing as though it's not associated with the NFL.
>>90852763Because it gets cold it was like 45 at the game last night Also a lot of the state is mountainous and forested

>>90852652>Virginia Beach is building a stadium at the oceanfront.>>THEY DONT HAVE A STADIUM
WE GOT MEMES
>>90852773It's like having the team play in downtown philidelphia but naming them the "Wilmington Shitskins" You still play in Phily but also Phily is quite a bit larger then Wilmington so why is it affiliated with Wilmington again?Also you're missing out on the possible Fleet vs Fleet rivary between Norfolk and San Deigo.
>>90852825Please share>>90852829I didn't sleep much, sorry anon :(>>90852818In which quarter and after how many INTs will they seat the yid guy for based Mettenberger?
Who /eliteQB/ here?
>>90852846who the fuck cares about boats? Norfolk is shit and always will be. Having it tied to Norfolk is like being able to base a team in Los Angeles but going with Glendale instead. No one wakes up and says "damn, it sure would be nice if we could take a trip to Norfolk this Spring Break" because it's just a bunch of fucking ships.
>>90852818I too unironically go to r/AAF_Football
>>90852884Iron reporting in
How was the quality of play?
>>90852966It was decent. Like a good college program
>>90852924Which is why it needs to be in VB. Use that weird soccer stadium off Princess Anne until the city finally cucks to Pharrell and gets a stadium at the oceanfront. Virginia Beach Neptune's, Virginia Beach Hurricanes, the Hampton Roads Flood, something like that.
league needs better branding. These names and logos are so generic.except for apollos and hotshots
>>90851960God help Memphis and Salt Lake
>>90852999checked. You talking about the Sportsplex. High Schools play games there all the time. only downside is the capacity. Like you can only fit lik maybe 5,000-8,000 people in the stands if that because there's only one side of stands.
>>90853033>so a sellout crowd is easy to getIt'll work for the time being. The major hangup on building the new stadium was no interest from a team. If the AAF says we want a team here, and we'll help build the stadium, I think that'd be a no brainer.That also assumes the AAF sticks around for a few more years.
>>90853011Why do people shit on the Stallions, they put up 22 points.Iron put up 26 points, but they needed that sky god refball "catch" to set up their first touchdown. Even the refs on the field told him the ball hit the floor, but he said not enough evidence bs.
>>90852846Just name the team after Hampton Roads or Tidewater, that encompasses the entire metro area.
>>90853056>That also assumes the AAF sticks around for a few more years.they're gonna need some adjustments and advertising, but I'll fucking take it.
>>90853081I like what I saw over the weekend. I like their rule changes, except for no "onside kick" substitute unless you're down by 17. I'd make it be only the team that is losing can do those.>fuck please put a team in Virginia Beach. I want a team to root for that isn't arbitrarily picked.
>>90853107same here VBro
>>90852644You should be shot.
>>90853074Too many Fefags hereStallions will upset them, they have a good enough OL and good running game. The defense lacks on the passing game but I doubt Mr Skygod will gift them again another completed incomplete like they did on their TD drive vs Memphis
>>90853074Stallions have been exposed as a joke team, maybe they can beat the Kangz
>>90853127>>90853107What the fuck is up with y'all and Virgina Beach.I just can't understand why you would want the team to be based off a small(ish) Beach resort instead of the main city which it's based around.Only reason I can come up with is that you are simply native to Virgina beach.
>>90853204The only thing Vagina Beach deserves is a small tactical nuke
>>90853204>norfolk has 245k people>virginia beach has 450k peopleThe fuck do you mean by "small"?
>>90852924But VB is Glendale and Norfolk is LA because LA is the main population center that everything revolves around, like Norfolk.
>>90853204>>90853211>main cityWhat do you mean by this? You know Virginia Beach isn't just the oceanfront, right?
This is now a Virginia Beach vs Norfolk thread.
>>90853223>main population center>less people than Virginia Beach>that everything revolves around>everybody ends up gravitating to the oceanfront whenever something of note (spring break, labor day, fourth of july, etc) happens
>>90853211>Urban populationWow what a memeYou both have the same metro population because we'll both metros overlap because it's almost as if it's the same city. Difference is that one matters and one is a resort town that has an inability to host professional sporting venues.
>>90853263norcucks don't make any sense to me.
>>90853263Gee then we should have teams in Panama City, Destin, Biloxi, Atlantic City, and especially Virgina beach because it's all about where people go for spring break!Again you don't have a stadium, have a stadium that can hold 15k or more and then you can start arguing for VB because from a geographical, logistical, and demographic standpoint, you revolve around Norfolk.
>small city warshonestly adorable
>>90851442Here bham bro
How did Sandy Ego do?
>>90853074They're on like their third choice for QB right now dude

>>90853318it doesn't matter how they did, all that matters is how they will do now that (((Bercovici))) got told to fuck offspoiler: they'll win da fuckin 'ship, that's how they'll do
>>90853294nobody gives a shit about your dumbass boats Norcuck. you are the mayonaisse of the Tidewater cities. Just face it, you're not exciting, marketable, or desirable.
>>90853294We don't revolve around Norfolk. Sure, we don't have a stadium that seats 15k, but that doesn't mean we couldn't build one.
Iron bros I'm tempted to buy some merch. Maybe a hat or a sweatshirt. Definitely some coozies.
>>90853388Will there ever be proper cards?
>>90853375The sportsplex can expand to 17k seats. We're good.
>>90853381Yeah speaking of which, looks like you're not even gonna get an arena built.Sorry but looks like you'll be unable to host a professional team untill further notice.
>legends and express are the worst names>legends and express are the worst teamspottery

>>90853074It was ruled a catch the field you fucking moron
>>90853428>build another row of seats on the other side of the sportsplex. Boom. Stadium.
Boats have an elite defense. Once the offense starts clicking they’ll be unstoppable.
MOST DISRESPECTED TEAMS IN THE LEAGUE POWER RANKINGS1. FLEET2. EXPRESS3. COMMANDERS4. STALLIONS5. HOTSHOTS6. IRON7. APOLLOS8. LEGENDS
>There are no television timeouts during games and fewer commercials to reduce overall game time to roughly 150 minutes instead of 180 minutes in the NFLBased>On defense, no more than five players may rush on passing plays. No defensive player may rush from a position of more than two yards outside the widest offensive lineman and more than five yards from the line of scrimmage.Not based
>>90853483What a phat boat.
>aaf games are quiet at """kickoff""" and 1st quarter>slowly the crowd gets into it>4th quarter crowd starts to yell and cheer for tds or defensive stopsWas funny to see especially during the iron game. Don't know how long this league will last but the mey-meys are spicy desu
>>90853483>a fricking boat
>>90853472No, it's literally just a high school stadium.>>90853469So? Isn't it odd niggers have a stadium and you don't? How do you think the Birmingham Irons feel? We're 70% black (urban population wise) and yet we still have a team why? Because we have a proper stadium (well it's condition is kinda shit but it looks like something a pro team could actually play In.
>>90853510NEVER HAD RESPECT TO BEGIN WITH
>>90853522>u no have stadiumeh. sportsplex. doesn't mean we aren't better than you
>>90853529IF I SEE THAT FUCKING BATTLESHIP ONE MORE TIME
>>90853483>>90853529>Fleets sign pissburgh safety Jordan Dangerfield to rosterWoule be based if this happened
>>90853546I'd rather watch a game at a packed sportsplex than a half-empty Foreman Field.
>>90853546What I mean is that if you expect your team to be on national television, there is no way they're gonna do it with a stadium that resembles a high school's. You gotta stop shilling for Norfolk and come to terms with the reality that you're just gonna have to either have no team or base it in Norfolk.
>>90853002fleet is cool
>>90853549how about this one
>>90853577>there wouldn't be upgrades made
>>90853002you are generic
>>90853600or dis one
>>90851353Columbus already has the Destroyers coming back, doubt more football would work there.
>>90853615try this one on for size
>>90853607Yes but they would be mainly major athletic but also functionality changes.Also more people are probably going to go to the games after this week so legion feild and some of the other stadiums probably won't be so empty. (Memepiss and kangs will probably have 4 people show up at most combined)I think I'll make a list of "requirements" for any AAF stadium. Just too busy RN to do it.
>>90853616im just clowning around over here dont mind me
>>90853649If the AAF said 'hey, we want a team here. Build a stadium', our city council would bend over backwards to either upgrade the sportsplex or get that oceanfront stadium back in the works.
>>90853668it this a real pic?
>>90853683of course it is anon dont be silly
>>90853502Was like that at the shots game.
>>90853675Too bad the arena was only intended for basketball, hocky, and concerts. It would of not been large enough to fit a football field.Also you would basically have to build a new stadium from the ground up. Too bad that isn't the case now and too bad the only possible solution is that they play in Norfolk.
>>90853726>>90853668Lmao fleet fags on suicide watch
>>90853388I'm definitely looking at getting a fleet shirt and maybe an AAF hoodieI like this meme league and I hope all the teams gain momentum as the season continues
>>90853752>we have a set infrastructure that can never be upgraded, rebuilt, or changed
>>90853735whatever do you mean anon
if you don't have one of these three qbs, you're basically already fucked
>>90853781>Implying a city would spend millions and MILLIONS of dollars for a new sporting venture that has only started 2 days ago.Yeah you're gonna go YEARS and maybe decades before getting a team.
>>90853811people say brady's superbowl was bad, yet he threw for more yards than these farmers
>>90853811Wolford confirmed GOAT
>>90853841We're talking about expansion teams, which means it's a hypothetical. We don't even know if the AAF is going to last through the season. So *if* it survives, *if* it is successful enough to expand, it would have some staying power. It would be able to throw some weight around. Don't be dense.
>>90853865We professional football now
Is this league giving anyone else a boner?
>>90853878Yeah but we're talking next 5 years. VB won't be ready for maybe another 10-15 years. Point is if it does expand, there are 30 better options then VB and you bet your sweet little ass they're gonna take all 30 before VB gets a team.
>>90853911Im raging hard for the shots Beebee
>>90852773As an African American gentleman i must inform you that most blacks don't care about pharrell anymore as it isn't the late 2000s anymore
>>90853940>10-15 yearsLol, no. It'd be closer to one or two years if a team said "we want to be here". inb4 "they'd just go to norfolk instead"Your hockey team dies every four years, and you've already got a dedicated arena for that. You couldn't maintain a team, too many navy people who are only there temporarily.
They say you may know a man by two factors: how he pronounces Iron, and what movie he knows Tim Curry from.For me, it’s>eye-urnand>It
>>90854041This tells me you're a fag
>>90851341It still amazes me that a bunch of practice squad rejects beat the NBA in prime time ratings. I guess Football all year is possible in the United states
>>90854021There's 1.7 million people in the greater Norfolk area (this includes Virgina beach) so they're not all sailors. Also should be mentioned that Norfolk is the best candidate to host an AAF team in ALL OF VIRGINA, Richmond doesn't have a stadium and every other city is just too small.So you wouldn't just be creating a team for Norfolk but also is only an hour drive from Richmond. And is between Hampton and Virgina beach which really would make it the epicenter of the population. The only chance of getting an AAF team in Virgina in the next 5 years is through Norfolk.
>>90854063Takes one to know one (but I’m not one) :^)
>>90854112>greater norfolk areaLol
>>90854100Football is the only sport that matters desu. MMA rivals it sometimes.
>>90853811Tfw your affiliate team is the hot shots.
are a/pol/los a thing?
>>90854176>screenshot of two numbersOh wow, you've really convinced me! Norfolk does have 1m+ people! Wait, it's got less than a quarter of that? Huh.
>>90854205>all best players will now be pulled up after a couple glorious seasons in the hotshots I’m okay with this
>>90854238Kinda wanted to bring attention to those figures.Also should be noted I am infact not from Norfolk but a resident of Alabama so I have no dog in this fight but the truth.
>>90853484Its due to the quality of o line talent. Its hard to build a good line in this league, if defenses could just bring the house the qb would get sacked like 80% of offensive plays. At first i didn't like this rule but after watching the games i can see why they implemented them...
>>90854306Those numbers you wanted to bring attention to? Half of that "urban" number comes from VB. Suck it up, buttercup, we're ripe for a team.
>>90854384probably after the first few practice games they were like 'shit fuck these games are going to be 4-3 scoring what can we do'
>>90852808no you are with the based boat gang
/ourleague/the most brilliant move was getting NFL's tacit support. the corporate sports cartel can't smother AAF in the crib and the teams are more fun to watch than my skins. maybe AAF will motivate snyder to stop using the skins as an ATM and start caring about building a football team. floating IMAX superboat asshole.
>>90854270>not the apo/ll/os
>>90853074stallions needed sky god too
>St Louis>Virginia somewhere>Colorado Springs>Ohio somewhereI think doubling the league after one season is unrealistic. These are areas that would guarantee asses in seats.
>>90854397Or maybe cities in Virgina are weird because you have this whole "independent cities" where your incorporated are is VERY small and normally are from a time when the largest cities In America had 100k people in it.By your metric, how many people do you think live in Atlanta? A few million? Nope only 486,000 people apparently live in Atlanta. So that means that Nashville and Charlotte are quite larger then the 9th largest metro area in the nation. Infact it means Virgina beach is basically the same size as Atlanta (being behind 30,000 people and all)You have no idea how demographics and cities work because obviously Atlanta has millions of people living around it. Those 200k and 400k only are in terms of direct Incorporation into the city.I'd hate to tell this to you but you're just a suburb of Norfolk, you just happen to have a larger physical area with similar population density.
>>90853811Wolford looked really legit last night. Like probably one of the single most NFL ready performances so far. Obviously this isn't playing against prime league material but he seems like a high-end backup qb. Woodside may have gotten more yards than Perez, but we'll see how that holds up. He gave up what, 3 or 4 INTs?
>>90854750>the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News MSA is only Norfolkgo fuck yourself
>>90854750That's be like calling Sandy Springs the center of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs MSA, with Atlanta the suburb.
>already bitching about expansionYou get eight. Learn to love them or GTFO.
>>90854820I think you're missing the point, you have no population advantage because what ever population you have is the same as norfolk's and they have actually stadiums that are ready to play In. Plus it's a better location too that's in the general center of the population. It's not going to be VB and you can cry all you want that Norfolk is a nigger town but that obviously didn't stop the Birmingham Iron now did it?Just admit Norfolk is the most logical place in Virgina to put a AAF team.
>>90851697>pollos>coolest name/logo>Gilbs or Ross on the shots>Terence Garvin>Really good, but it easily could have been 48 or 56 points>Probably a win>there is nothing good about the Kangz
>>90854946>population advantageThe immediate city is double the size, and this area is already hilariously territorialistic.>better locationNot really. Driving into downtown Norfolk is a pain in the ass. Driving to the geographic center of VB or the oceanfront is simple in comparison.>nigger townI don't care about that at all.>Norfolk is betterIt's literally not.
>>90853861Brady wouldn't make it in the AAF. Especially when they don't call roughing the passer calls.
>>90854914Problem is you were founded in 1904 and made a city in 1956, Norfolk was founded in 1682 and was made a city In 1736It's obvious which one is the city and which one is a suburb which developed off the location of Norfolk and is infact mostly just people who moved out of Norfolk in the 70's and 80's and beyond that really made Virgina beach what we come to know it as today. So since Virgina beach mainly developed thanks to people moving out from Norfolk. Isn't it safe to say Virgina beach formed like any other suburban town in the country and therefore is a suburban city itself?This pic right here is textbook suburban craze.
mad at the boats?
>>90854781he had a couple, one was a deflection iirc. Woodside definitely has a lot of work to do on his game, but accuracy was (18/36) much better than I expected. Plus, the fleet's front line put a lot of pressure on him, Moore had 6 QB hits on his own.>tl;dr Wolford is for now the consensus best qb in the league, but for guys like wooside, woorum, even perez (because memepiss is a joke) it's gonna take a few more weeks till we figure who they really are
>>90855031Brady wouldn't make it in the AAF because he's a system babby, but your reason works too.
>>90855116>Team loses>Go into hidingPlastics GTFO, we /lifelong/
>>90855017You know Virgina beach isn't the ONLY city in that area right? The Hamptons ring a bell? Richmond ring a bell? Yes those are area what you would be mostly isolating thanks to the added hour drive to the non-existent stadium.If you want more fans to go to your games, make it so the stadium isn't out of the way for a good 45% of the potential fanbase.Also Jesus Christ you're retarded because obviously only people who live in the immediate city of Atlanta go to Atlanta falcons games, only people who live in the immediate city of Baltimore to to Raven games, only people in the immediate city of San Francisco travel 2 hours to their stadium in San Jose. Do you understand how crazy it is to use a cities immediate city size to determine the relevancy to a football teams fanbase?
>>90855102>that sinking feeling
https://www.strawpoll.me/17412325I'm curious as to the fanbase distribution on /sp/ vote for the team that you follow
>>90855077Ah yes, because a place that's been inhabited since colonists first landed in Virginia in 1607 came second. Right. Because chronological time goes backwards prior to 1700. Got it.>two different cities>one isn't a suburb of the other
>>90855232>Ignoring pic related, also should look at pic related too and notice a connectionYeah Jesus Christ if you can't make that connection, you're either doubting yourself or your IQ is room temperature.
>>90852086>400lbI need see this
>>90855128I was pretty impressed with woodside overall as a commanders fan. He had that one absolutely terrible pick but otherwise he was good. He had a few throws that were on point, a few were dropped though.
Okay, my qualifications for an AAF qualified city>The city must have a stadium that has a capacity of atleast 30,000>The city must have a greater metro population of at-least 650,000*>The city may not have an NFL team playing there the following fall>The city must have the stadium avaliable mostly throughout the spring>The city's stadium can't resemble a lower class of play (like high school)*Unless there are other metros with in an hours drive of the stadium in which case you would add that metro's total to the cities totals and then evaulate if the total is over 650,000If your city fits all of these qualifications, congrats, your city would work for an AAF team.
How do AAF playoffs/divisions work? I can't find any info on it.

>yfw da boats win da aafb owl
>>90855543>A four-team playoff is to be capped with the league's championship game at Sam Boyd Stadium near Las Vegas, planned for April 27
>>90855266I can tell you're not from here. Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, etc., don't come down over the water to do things in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, or Chesapeake. Almost nobody travels over to Portsmouth unless they work there, or vice versa. Nobody cares about Suffolk. Chesapeake is more or less the suburb of Norfolk. VB grew in the 60s because of a few things: absorbing Princess Anne, NAS Oceana, and better technology to clear swamps. Notice it wasn't suburban sprawl from Norfolk. And for the most part, Norfolk stays away from VB, and VB stays away from Norfolk. That's why the hockey team dies every four years. The only reason the baseball team in Norfolk doesn't die is because it's tied to Baltimore, and a they have a lot of fans down here for some reason. I understand your "don't ignore 45% of the population", but that 45% doesn't interact with the 55% anyway. So, yes, it sort of is an immediate city population. Sure, Norfolk looks better on paper. In reality, it's not.>but muh RichmondThey won't come here either.
>>90855581I meant moreso how do they determine playoff seeds? Do they have divisions? Tiebreakers?
>>90855581>Playoffs will consist of four teams, the top two teams from each conference.Just in case it wasn't obvious

>>90855558>mfw da boats win da champion ship
>>90855615AAF is not interested in merging with the XFL, seeing as AAF is an extension of the NFL and is loosely affiliated. XFL would have to succeed for years before a merger were ever considered, and it won't. It will crash and burn since the AAF is already doing what the XFL intends to do.
>>90855615I'd be down.
>>90855668make me its perfect for my football autism
>>90855606Western (Arizona, Salt Lake, San Antonio, San Diego) conference and Eastern (Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Orlando) conference. Top 2 teams from each conference advance.I have no fucking idea how do seeding or tiebreakers work now that I think about it, but knowing american sports it'll probably be set up for a final with a team from each conference.
Still no Dallas team. Why does this league not understand that Texas is football?
StallionBros get the fuck ITT
>be boat>get kamikaze'd
>>90855715You've already got a team. Fuck off.
>San Diego Fleet as unironically, literally lost every single game they ever played>they have never even scored a TD>they are already talking about winning the 'owlBest case scenario you go 3-7 scrapping a win vs San Antonio at home and wins vs kangz and memepiss express
>>90855583But the world and human beings simply don't operate based on bureaucratic lines of a municipality. It's not like we see them are like "Oh damn it's the line between The Hamptons and Norfolk, I know I shouldn't care but wow as a person from Hampton I just can NEVER enter as it is the rules of the universe. "You know I'm from the Birmingham area and people generally never come from the suburbs like Hoover and Helena into Birmingham but you can sure bet your sweet little ass we're going downtown to watch us some IRON.Just because people never go downtown doesn't mean people won't go and see a game there. If you give them something interesting to go to, well they'll go to it.From the map you can really see why people from the southern suburns don't cross red mountian for much. But we still crossed it and went right into the heart of that hellhole to watch us some IRONBALL. Basically you're wrong and with much more extream exmples like Birmingham, it should be apparent that some people from the hamptons and Newport News will come down to watch some good ol' football.
>>90855719>getting GLUE’d by the shitsAs a lifelong fan, trust me when I say that the ponies aren’t what they used to be
>>90855756>basically you're wrongBuddy, I wish I were wrong. I'd love to see some regional unity here, but that's not how Tidewater works. Promise you.
>>90855646perhapsbesides the xfl another spring league created by Ricky Williams and TO called the Freedom Football league is also starting next year but my fear is it will oversaturate the market and lead it to all of them collapse
>>90851341Who'd you like to see get a team? I'm thinking Richmond, Portland, Milwaukee and Oklahoma City.
anyone else here /burrsfleet/
>>90855719You rang?>we still need more wojaks and pepes
>>90855819>the Freedom Football league
>>90855819The AAF will survive because it is an NFL product and it's one that is essentially self sustaining. Not that it will always maintain high viewersip in the same way minor league baseball doesn't, but it's a permanent extension at this point. The only ones that have to worry about actual failure are the XFL or any other leagues attempting to fill a minor league type role that aren't the AAF.

Will the AAF beat the NBA in ratings again this weekend?
>>90856240Day one here
>>90856279Absolutely. The NBA isn't important to non-melanin-enriched folk.
>>90856279>all star gameDoubt it, but at leaves Saturday open
>>90855819Here are some big problems for the XFL and FFL to overcome if they want to succeed:1. AAF has a 1 year lead, this is honestly huge for growing a fanbase, attracting talent, and ironing out production issues.2. The AAF already have connections/deals with NFL teams and football universities to continue to gain talent.3. They already have a TV deal with CBS and the NFL network along with internet streaming.4. Contracts are for 3 years where the only escape clauses are: being cut, joining the NFL, or not playing professional football. So now the XFL and FFL have to fight over players who aren't in the NFL, AAF, or CFL.

>>90856515Consider: General offensive line quality especially on passing plays, tight ends being either unable to pick up blocking assignments or having stone hands, wide receivers dropping shit left and right trying to make cool catches, running backs like Richardson running with no real vision whatsoever, all the quarterbacks outside the three that performed well. Especially the Oline thing. If things are already this thin in the AAF, consider how bad third and fourth-tier linemen would be.

How many aaf players go to the xfl so they can play in the fall too?
>>90856948I think the XFL will be a spring or summer league. XFL isn't dumb enough to compete agaisn't the NFL
>>90856930>CLOP CLOP CLOP's on your FleetNothin personal kid
>>90856617Seeing as how his only selling point is "No Kneeling and No Thuggery," and even Trump is over that and stated that he watches and enjoys the NFL now, combined with only being able to pick up Dollar Tree levels of football talent, and with all of the advantages the AAF has plus a 1 year head start, I fully expect the XFL to fold before the first season is over.
>>90856746Has there been any statements on how the XFL or FFL plan to attract talent that is at or above the collegiate level?
