Hurricanes owner invests a quarter BILLION into AAF

Recommended Posts

Personally, I think the XFL (which starts next year), should merge with the AAF.

 

That way, instead of having two 8-team leagues, you would have a 16 team league that covers nearly the whole country.

I agree. It would be nice to see a legit competitor if the nfl wants to move towards flag football.

They should at least explore the idea of playing some sort of Championship game or something.

It's a long way to go before they are any sort of competitor. Could happen, but it's a long way off.

No doubt. I think two good things can come out of this league. First, a solid developmental league would help young players catch on teams and be a place to refine their skills with former professional coaches. Two, the league is a legit challenge to the NFL, and the NFL realizes it needs to change things or it will lose money popularity.

That would be awesome but they should still play in the spring and not try to pull a USFL on us.

And they could share the same fanbase. I don't think the average schmoe is going to want to follow two semi-pro leagues. One league would be ideal. :niterider

Fuck this team

I'll tie a frying pan to my ass so you hurt your penis, you ****ing homo!

Shut the fuck up dark cloud pussy

Anyone who is foolish enough to not be a Buffalo Bills fan can go f*ck themselves with a wooden shovel handle.

Dream on. Not happening. Cross purposes. The XFL will fail yet again. Bet on it.

XFL so nearsighted they were already marketing their league like they were the ra ra we support our troops league we'll never kneel as if that was going to be an issue with the NFL for the next decade lmao.

 

This will never end up as a competitor. The NFL is way too enmeshed into the American culture. It IS football. The best thing the XFL/AAF can do is become an alternative and essentially a minor league for the NFL and stick to playing their season from Feb - August. They shouldn't get so bold/stupid and try to have their league games during the NFL regular season

AAF is set up to be a developmental league for the NFL. No competition there.

Aaaaand it’s gone

 

Surprising, for sure. With the guys that were involved, Phil Savage, etc, you would think they had at least the first year funded.

 

On a different note, XFL actually is a better name than AAF. There is that!

Not sure how this works but do they put something in a clause saying he can recoup some of that money in the event of something like this?? Or did he just flush all of that after investing only a month ago? Crazy to think!

I would bet he can recoup, some of it. I am sure he hedged his bet.

 

I really, really thought they had a shot.

 

The Alliance operates as a single entity, with all teams owned and operated by the league, under the name Legendary Field Exhibitions LLC.[29] Some of the investors in the AAF include Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, The Chernin Group (which owns Barstool Sports), Jared Allen, Slow Ventures, Adrian Fenty, Charles King's M Ventures, and Keith Rabois.[38][24]

 

MGM Resorts International made an investment in the AAF tech platform,[40] and entered a three-year sponsorship agreement to become the league's official sports betting sponsor and exclusive gaming partner. The deal marks the first time any sports organization has sold exclusive in-game betting rights to a sportsbook

I think Dundon is going to end up losing 70 million

 

Jeez, and he was only involved for 5 weeks or so. What the hell were the founders thinking? Let's go into this and have zero seed corn to make payroll?

 

An early investor must have dropped out right before they season started.....
