San Antonio Draws AAF’s Highest Attendance, Proving Texas Football is Still King

Shaan Washington is one of several former Aggie players participating in this new league which is being pegged as a developmental league for the NFL, similar to the G-League for the National Basketball Association or MLB's many different farm system teams. Names like Mike Bercovici and Christian Hackenberg are the players trying to lead their teams to victories. This gives us the flexibility to reward the player that best deserves it across multiple positions, rather than shoehorning in somebody just to fit a slot receiver or cornerback role. Despite both teams struggling to find momentum - keep in mind that they've only been together for about one month - the Commanders' defense shined in a 15-6 win in their first game. That AAF team has the initial, exclusive draft rights to college players from those associated teams. It does have general managers for each club.

The AAF is smartly adopting tech and gambling as part of its business strategy. Not only that, but the Alamodome hosted 27,857 fans on Saturday night, which was the highest attendance of any home game on opening weekend. There also are formal AAF tie-ins for legal sports gambling. But the AAF, founded by TV producer Charlie Ebersol and longtime National Football League executive Bill Polian, aims to capitalize on the down time after the Super Bowl - and burgeoning interest in sports betting. There are a handful of other venture capital funds providing cash, and some celebrity investors like Shaquille O'Neal. Sure, it's the minor league, and it's not the NFL. For example, former Giants 2013 third round pick Damonte Moore, who bounced around the league, had six QB hits and five tackles for San Diego. Of course, this is not the first new league to pop up over the last 35 years or so. By this standard maybe NY and Pittsburgh should get teams too.
