Looking at the Stallions roster and am kind of amped about the AAF. I think
emphasis on athletes from local schools + direct ties to the NFL + an interesting cross-section of cities gives them a shot.
Scanning the roster: there are some REALLY good football players on there. I expect the quality of play will be, on net, slightly better than most FBS football - both because pretty much everyone there was good enough to at least make it to an NFL camp or get a look from the NFL, and because they're all fully grown men at this point. But obviously, without the premiere NFL talents that make up the top 5-10% of FBS athletes, there will be slightly less dynamism at the top end of the game - basically, higher floor than FBS, but lower ceiling.
Gonna be interesting to see how it goes. Here's the roster:
"Sell crazy someplace else - we're all stocked up here."
"Our fan base is, overall, incredibly embarrassing."

"When it came time for me to select a university, my first choice was BYU here in Provo; however, I did not qualify. Not academically, because I had worked through high school more than I had studied, nor financially, because I could not afford to live away from home. Hence the option I chose was to attend the University of Utah, where I could live at home, work locally, and attend school full-time. Sometimes we need to be willing to adjust our goals and modify our plans while never losing sight of the desired end result."
