Orlando Apollos Dominate Atlanta in Inaugural Game of AAF

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

Almost four decades removed from a stint in the short-lived USFL, Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian will preside over the opening weekend of the newest spring league, the Alliance of American Football.

If you're old enough to remember, the XFL also drew monster numbers during their opening night, but it showed not to be sustainable over the course of the season, which is why the league folded after one season.

The ratings for the opening night of the inaugural AAF season proved just how much Americans can not get enough of football. "We were going for it", he said.

Former Colts running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Scott Tolzien play for the Birmingham Iron.

Led by head coach Steve Spurrier, the Orlando Apollos beat the Atlanta Legends 40-6 thanks to a two touchdown performance by quarterback Garrett Gilbert. The play clock will only run 35 seconds, five seconds shorter than the NFL. J. K. McKay, the head of football operations for the Alliance, told Pro Football Talk that the league will put an emphasis on keeping the players within the area they played college football. Here's how you can watch Sunday's game.


In the Alliance of American Football roster building process, every NFL team was assigned an AAF affiliate.

Polian and Ebersol said every National Football League team had scouts in San Antonio when all the teams recently held training camp and then each played an exhibition game. We certainly did as a staff, and I would say the Apollos had the same situation, and the officials did as well. Well, Saturday night was a smashing success, and people will continue to tune in if we get outstanding defense like we saw against the Fleet. "They're a partner. The goal is to improve and support the ecosystem of football".

Games will be carried on CBS, NFL Network and Turner.

In a nice touch, Kurt Warner is the pregame and halftime analyst for Saturday night's games on CBS. Erickson and Neuheisel bring a ton of coaching experience in both the collegiate and professional levels with them so the head-to-head chess match as they break in their new teams should be entertaining in and of itself.

"Think about how many Kurt Warners are hiding among those kids who don't get to the NFL", Ebersol said.
