Is the AAF already better than the NFL?
Look out, NFL. There's a new football brand on the block and it's changing the way people are thinking of football.
Unlike its more established counterpart, the Alliance of American Football is taking risks and it's paying off. San Diego Fleet quarterback Mike Bercovici took a massive, but legal hit that would've easily been a flag in the NFL, playing to the desire of fans who want to see old school football. There's also no field goals in overtime, only two-point conversions and onside kicks are replaced with the option to attempt 4th & 10 at own 35-yard line.
One week in and the AAF is already more fun than the NFL!
Wow! Transparency in a sport? That's revolutionary!
The NFL tries to hide behind a shroud of mystery at all times, while the AAF actually takes you into the replay booth to see and hear what the official thinks. It won't stop bad calls, but at least you know there is some clarity and accountability with each decision.
What's the AAF? It certainly isn't anything as irrelevant as football after the Super Bowl is it? Oh, it is...
The American Alliance of Football is only getting attention because of one big hit and the Philly Special being run. Everything else about the league pales in comparison to the NFL.
The two games that happened was a 34-point blowout and a 15-6 snoozefest. There's nothing exciting about football like that. It's like what happened the XFL. People flocked to it because it was football when there was no NFL, but as soon as the difference in quality became apparent, fans stopped tuning in.
The NFL might have its problems, but thinking the AAF or any other football league is on the same level as the Shield is asinine. Did people already forget about the 100+ shootout between the Rams and Chiefs during the regular season?! Week in and week out, there's always an exciting matchup.
The National Football League is still the best football anyone will ever see in the world.
Athletes playing the AAF are NFL rejects. While the Alliance of American Football is giving table scrap-levels of football, the National Football League serves up prime rib. The athletes that play in the NFL perform some of the most ridiculous athlete feats ever seen. The AAF might get lucky, but they can't pull off the kinds of highlights their rivals put out every week.
