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

The league wants to serve as a platform for players who, for one reason or another, are out of the NFL, with co-founder Bill Polian stating that he hopes to "lose 30 to 40 percent out our players" to the NFL every year. "I got a bunch of texts from friends and one captured it best". It's hard to say, specifically, as there's simply no history from which to derive any kind of expectations, but hopefully, we'll see some good football. She noted the league offers fans an opportunity to "fill up" on the sport during a time of the year that's usually football-free. Additionally, there will be a sky judge referee who can communicate with the officials on the field in real-time so the refs won't have to go under the hood.

It was a long night for Atlanta, which took the field barely a month after the sudden departure of coach Brad Childress and just days after the team decided ex-NFL quarterback Michael Vick would no longer hold the title of Legends offensive coordinator.

"6th team to win the first one".

Here are some of the first's we saw last night at Spectrum Stadium - Marshall's 26-yard touchdown pass from Gilbert early in the second quarter was the league's first-ever TD. Wide receiver Charles Johnson led all receivers with four catches for 60 yards. Each team gets the ball on the 10 yard line with four downs. Legends quarterback Matt Simms was under duress the entire night, often not having any time at all after receiving the snap to make his reads. Teams can not have more than five players rushing at a time. Be sure to go to there site and support them.

Tottenham can still gate crash the title race
When asked if he'll be involved for that fixture, Pochettino replied: "Maybe, maybe". Not for Sunday, not for Wednesday, but we will see after".

Overall, this game was a promising start for the league and Orlando.

Now, were these numbers even close to what an National Football League game could get in primetime? The AAF's mission is "to provide high-quality professional football fueled by a dynamic Alliance between players, fans, and the game".

The Legends will head back to Atlanta to regroup before heading out next week to play the San Diego Fleet on the road.

There will also be two more games on Sunday with Arizona, Birmingham, Memphis and Salt Lake City all squaring off (Here's how to watch all of this weekend's games). Sports TV Ratings said the first game on CBS ‏averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.
