AAF ratings are impressive.

Yeah pretty good for them but I don't think that'll last. Some of it with the first week was curiousity and seeing what it was all about. Will be interesting to see how they do from here on out. Certainly doesn't hurt having more football in the year.

Great news, but Dan Lebatard pointed out the xfl did the same thing on its opening night then quickly fell off. Of course, that wasn’t really football like this is, so if their ratings can keep up while broadcasting in CBSSports Network, they will be around for a while. America loves football, ppl will watch.

I was about to mention that too.

Granted, these guys weren't the absolute sh-t show that the XFL was. I didn't have to spend any time listening to Jerry Lawler slobber over cheerleaders.

True, what’s helping this is real football. XFL will see success too if they are going to be what they say.

It wasn't bad football, except if you're in atlanta and they're used to losing at major sports.

It was entertaining, and they give you a reason, automatically, to root for a team.  Gamecock players seemed to have gotten sent to the Orlando Apollos for example.  So even though there is not a SC/NC based team, by default there is a team that is slanted towards getting players I am interested in following and cheering for.  That alone was brilliant.  It creates a fanbase for the teams outside of people living in the specific cities or following a couple big name players.

Might be a great training ground for O-linemen, kickers and punters. Who knows, a QB might emerge from the ranks in time.

A season there for an UFA might be just enough on the resume to get a spot in an NFL training camp.

I'd like to see the NFL adopt some of their rules.  

Not the kickoff ones.

I don't know about kickers...they eliminated the PA's and kickoffs.

Why not?  Kickoff's are a waste of time now.  They've changed the rules enough to almost effectively eliminate them anyway.  Plus now it's virtually impossible to recover an onside kick.

I'd rather they fix those rules than eliminate the kickoff.

But they're not because of concussions.  So get rid of them altogether, they really are a colossal waste of time.

    • It’s very typical of a RR team. I’m a RR fan, for the most part, but this is inexcusable.  I wonder if breaking camp and moving back to CLT disrupted the rhythm? Either way, it was pitiful.  I couldn't care less that they lost, it’s the manner in which they lost that deeply concerns me. 
    • If anyone gives you poo because they (whites, I assume) do not think you should feel as you do, that in itself supports your statement.   Who the hell is a white man to tell a minority what should or should not offend them?  If you are white and decide what is appropriate for blacks and what is not--then you are demonstrating white privilege. If Ace feels there is white privilege, then listen to him and reflect--instead you give him poo.  You don't speak for me, aholes.  My opinion of Reid is a bit different because I look at it from the business side as well as the social justice side, but Ace is not making up how he feels--and it is not your call, brothers.
    • Democrats generally consider Biden's finest hour to be his debate performance against Paul Ryan in 2012.  Ryan is a little try-hard turd who wants to be thought of as an intellectual and policy wonk, and Biden easily shoved him around that night. Trump, on the other hand, doesn't give a fug about any of that.  Trump blurts out whatever flashes across his stimulant-addled sundowning brain no matter how wrong or outrageously stupid/nonsensical it is with the confidence of a man slapping a royal flush down on the table.  Biden can't counter it and would get sucked into the game.
