The AAF inaugural season continues this weekend with four games. This thread will serve as an open thread for the entire weekend of AAF games, plus you can also let everybody know your thoughts about the Packers of course... and since it’s “pick on the LOLions week” here at WCG, be sure to give some love to those people as well.
The first game of the week features the 1-0 Birmingham Iron, lead by former third overal NFL pick Trent Richardson who scored two touchdowns last week against Memphis. Kickoff will be 1:00 PM Central and the game will be aired on TNT.
Game two of the day will feature the 1-0 Arizona Hotshots taking on Mike Singletary’s 0-1 Memphis Express. You can watch the game on NFL Network.
Sunday’s games kick off (well, OK, they don’t actually kick off... they start at the 25-yard-line) at 3:00 PM Central as the 1-0 Orlando Apollos take on the 1-0 San Antonio Commanders. You can view the game on the CBS Sports Network.
Game four of the weekend is another night game, as the 0-1 Atlanta Legends visit the 0-1 San Diego Fleet.

The Alliance of American Football began its inaugural season last weekend, when eight new football teams scattered around the country and made up of college and NFL washouts took the field. The league’s rollout reminded me of that deception’s many faces; namely, that the end may be disguised as a beginning.
