My AAF Experience

 

 

Cordova, TN; April 8, in the year of our Lord 2019 – Family Friendly Gaming the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is sharing an exciting story on an interesting experience. Noah and I went to the Memphis Express versus Orlando Apollos football game in Memphis, TN at the Liberty Bowl. This was the first time Noah or I had ever been to the Liberty Bowl. This was our first experience with the Alliance of American Football(AAF). We went to this game near the end of March. In my opinion the AAF should have waited until the beginning of April to start playing football. Part of our experience at this football game was absolutely miserable. With five minutes left to go in this football game it started pouring down rain on us. The wind had already been whipping around all game. It was cold, and then became wet and miserable. We made it to the two minute warning and then got out of there. I suspect this will be our only opportunity to see the AAF. I do not expect them to last much longer.

My ultimate impression of the AAF is they are a AA league that charges professional prices. The attendance was horrible. I am guessing two to three thousand people at most. The announced attendance was over twelve thousand. I did not see anywhere near that many people. There may have been less than one thousand people there. I have pictures of the game. We paid twenty dollars for tickets in the end zone. When the teams were on our side of the fifty yard line it was okay. When the teams were on the other side we had to turn around and watch the big screen. I could have done that at home for free. The announcer was sub par, and the referees were horrible. The referees made so many bad calls that there is no way to know how the game would have gone without their constant mistakes.

Too many receivers dropped balls. The ball boys caught more balls than some of the receivers. There were also a lot of injuries in the game as well. It shocked me to see how many players got hurt in that football game. I have been to pro football, college football, and high school football. I have seen less injuries in all of those other levels. I have also seen better referee calls. It seems like they would call something if certain players complained. Other times they did not call what were blatant fouls. The lack of logic made no sense to me. The AAF has odd rules too. The defense was called for an illegal formation after they got an interception. There are no kick offs in the AAF. Teams start at a certain place on the field. There are no extra point kicks either. Teams must got for two after scoring. The football on the field was actually fun and interesting. There were a lot of passes so it felt like Arena football to me.

{UPDATE}: This was written before the AAF suspended operations, and then shut down.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.



God bless,
