Spurrier returns to sideline, wins AAF opener

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

The AAF football league will play a 10 week schedule. Central on CBS Sports. Instead, teams will attempt the equivalent of a fourth-and-12 play from their 28-yard line.

The players were allocated to their teams by region based on where they played college football or last played with an NFL or CFL club. So he's been with the team since before its players arrived.

Like Spurrier, Mike Martz and Mike Singletary, Childress was among the first big-name additions to the AAF roster, bringing a plethora of NFL experience to the upstart league. We've seen it before with the USFL in the 1980s, and later with Vince McMahon's XFL in the early 2000s. Despite the long list of failed pro football franchises in the Alamo City, the locals ate this stuff up.

But Ebersol couldn't help trumpeting that the AAF topics were 11 of the 20 most trending on Twitter following the game and that the league's app was No. 1 on Google Play and No. 2 in the Apple Store. Former Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will serve as Head of Player Relations, while longtime Pittsburgh receiver Hines Ward takes charge of Football Development.

But you have to start somewhere, and the start for the AAF is a clear win.

Newshour, Pope admits sexual abuse of nuns by clergy
Mulakkal, 53, who headed the diocese of Jalandhar in the northern state of Punjab, has denied the allegations. The women were reportedly removed from the order after highlighting the abuse.

Five teams, the Birmingham Iron, Salt Lake Stallions, Orlando Apollos, and San Diego Fleet, and San Antonio Stallions will be hosted by a market without a professional football team.

Having lower-level leagues is good for these platers, but not necessarily good for the guys who now have spots on NFL rosters. One of the central components of this plan is the league's tech platform.

And, there was just enough razzle-dazzle and imaginative play-calling in the Apollos' 40-6 victory over the Legends to remind the faithful, who can buy season tickets for as little as $75, of the good old days.

This one is quite interesting, and will definitely impact how the AAF will be different from the National Football League, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including CBS Sports Network, CBS and TNT. The Iron lead 9-0 after three quarters and have a tip-drill interception of Express quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who has struggled to find any consistency in his career following his breakout freshman season at Penn State.
