    All American Football League

    http://www.allamericanfootballleague.com/

    Has anyone else heard of this? I like the idea behind it since it is something different, but like many other leagues NFL Europe, USFL.

    The All American Football Leagueâ„¢ is a for-profit, professional football league.

    Teams will initially operate as divisions of League whose football operations will be run by a quasi-independent board and General Manager. Some of the League's teams will be hosted by universities with Division IA football programs and other teams will play in independent venues. Games will be scheduled in the spring and early summer.

    League teams will employ only those players who have both completed their college football eligibility and earned a four-year degree. This policy is expected to have a very positive impact on universities’ NCAA Graduation Success Rate and their Academic Progress Rate. To the extent practical, graduates of host universities will play for the team hosted by their alma mater.

    The League intends that each League team will sell memberships to its fans and supporters. Members may be entitled to renewable season tickets in preferred locations, preferred parking, and other “insider” benefits. The League also hopes to provide Members access to high-definition private broadcasts of League games.

    Teams will initially operate as divisions of League whose football operations will be run by a quasi-independent board and General Manager.

    The league has signed an agreement with the University of FLORIDA team to play some home games in Gainesville. Orlando's Citrus Bowl or Jacksonville's Gator Bowl or Tampa's Raymond James Stadium is expected

    to host the remaining home games for the League's FLORIDA team. The League has also signed option contracts with the Universities of TENNESSEE, Purdue and NC State and a letter of intent with the University of Iowa and Florida State University to host League teams.

    The League has signed a contract with Legion Field to host its ALABAMA team and a contract with War Memorial Field to host its ARKANSAS team.

    Still under consideration for '08 are independent sites in MICHIGAN, TEXAS, MISSISSIPPI and NEBRASKA.

    An announcement of the Leagues' teams for its inaugural season is expected to be made in September, 2007.

    Yeah, I've heard the buzz about it in these parts.

    This is going to be perfect for further developing players to go into the NFL, when someone goes down.

    Bad news for the CFL though. (3 downs does suck though)
