Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Michigan and Tennessee. These are the initial teams in the All American Football League. The teams are located in college football hotbeds. Can me take a second and think about ME and put a friggen team in Iowa? I know it’s not exactly a college football powerhouse but we have a lot of football fans that would back this thing. Ok, enough of that.
Texas Coach, Jon Jenkins wants to put it out there again for you naysayers that are not trying to compete with the NFL.
“It’s more of a supporting arm to college football than anything,” Jenkins said. “Indeed it is a pro football league, but well play in the spring and stay in the spring, unlike some of the mistakes that happened in the past with other professional leagues.”
Eric Crouch showed up at tryouts although too injured to dress out and quit.
The league opens in mid April 2008 and concludes with a title game on July 3rd. I don’t know if any TV stations have picked up on it (listening Versus Network?) but I would watch.
