The AAF Has A Target Audience: The NFL

February 19th, 2019

As a former season ticket holder of the USFL’s Tampa Bay Bandits, albeit with a student discount, Todd Wright knows more about the 1980’s pro spring football fling than most people. So when Todd hears most comparisons between the United States Football League and the Alliance of American Football, he can shoot them down immediately. This edition of The TODDcast discusses the clear difference in league philosophies and why Bill Polian’s product may not be exciting, but valuable.
The Todd Wright TODDcast is presented by Brandon Legal Group.

PRESENTED BY*Joe thinks it’s very cool to have Todd Wright diving back into the kind of thing he was known for nationally. 

For the last three years, Todd Wright has been podcasting here almost exclusively on fantasy football and Lightning playoff hockey. While those podcasts are not going away permanently, they each clearly have offseasons.

So, for the new year, Todd has a new podcast. And it simply covers pretty much anything that Todd finds interesting. No limits. Sort of like he did for nearly two decades on national radio as host and creator of AllNight with Todd Wright on ESPN in addition to other roles with Fox Sports Florida, Sirius/XM, Sporting News Radio, etc. Our thanks to Brandon Legal Group for their continuing support of both Todd Wright Tour golf tournaments as well as the TODDcast into 2019. Enjoy.

    AAF Couldn’t even pay the first week of Salaries. They had to get more capital ($250 million) and a new investor to do it.

    It’s already failed. I would never have put up that kind of money. Know why?

    Because if a start-up company has not provided for at least one year worth of salaries when it opens its doors, then it is not run well.

    Bad investment.

    As to the game, I tuned in to the first one. The AAF was billed as having very similar rules to the NFL, but when that game aired, everyone saw that it was not the case.

    If they DID have the same rules, then people might put up with the boring games, but how are these has-been or never-been players going to prepare for the NFL if the rules are so different?

    At this point, the CFL is better.

    And that is why the ratings took a nose-dive.

    I have watched the two Orlando games and both were more entertaining than this years Super Bowl.

  4. Rod Munch Says:

    I saw the first half of the Orlando game and it was fairly entertaining and solid. But why start the week after the SB when everyone is burnt out on football? Dumb move. Start your league around 2 weeks before the draft when people are back into the mood to follow football – and when you hit that period after the draft when there isn’t anything going on in the football world.

    Anywho next year the XFL starts, and stupidly they too are going to be starting the week after the SB. Only real thing the XFL could do is to allow kids to play straight out of high school, or maybe after one year of college, then it could compete with colleges for players and that might allow them to make an impact.
