The First Night of AAF Football

The First Night of AAF Football

Head coach Steve Spurrier of the South Carolina Gamecocks against the Georgia Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium on September 12, 2009 in Athens, Georgia.

The San Antonio Commanders kicked, picked and sacked their way to a 15-6 win over the San Diego Fleet in the inaugural game of the new Alliance of American Football Saturday night in the Alamodome. Either way, the AAF made a promising dent.

The challenge for the AAF will be to keep the good times rolling. CBS Sports Network will televise one game a week, the NFL Network will show 19 games, and TNT and B-R Live will also carry broadcasts of the action throughout the season.

Overall, this game was a promising start for the league and Orlando.

On Sunday, Memphis is at Birmingham, and Salt Lake at Arizona.

Keep an eye on these key differences from the National Football League, as chronicled last week by The Post's Matt Bonesteel. There will also be no kicked extra point, each team will be required to attempt a two-point conversion after a touchdown. The sky judge will use real-time technology to correct clear errors involving player safety anytime during a game and pass interference inside of five minutes left in the fourth quarter.

During a Twitter Q&A, Kher was asked to tweet in Kangana's support. "The actor replied, "#KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR. She said, "one thing is for sure, I'm not going to spare anyone".

In overtime, each team will get the ball at the opposing 10-yard line.

It was a long night for Atlanta, which took the field barely a month after the sudden departure of coach Brad Childress and just days after the team decided ex-NFL quarterback Michael Vick would no longer hold the title of Legends offensive coordinator.

There are no kickoffs, with each team starts a possession after a score or at the start of a half at its 25-yard line. Be sure to go to there site and support them. The game will end in a tie if neither team scores.

Other teams have more players with Bears connections right now, but the Hotshots roster has former third-round pick Will Sutton, who last played in Chicago in 2016. So, who are the notable players on the rosters, who are the teams and what does the schedule look like?

Every player is paid the same three-year, non-guaranteed $250,000 contract with built-in bonuses for meeting performance goals.

Although the AAF plans to serve as a complementary league to the NFL, the Alliance plans to change areas of the NFL's policy where the fan engagement is low or that they feel are unsafe.
