A mic'd up Christian Hackenberg kept cursing during his bad AAF debut

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

They return home after two road games to play the Hotshots and Orlando Apollos, then they will travel to San Diego, come back for a three-game home stand against the Express, Commanders and Fleet, before splitting the next two games, ending their first season with a home bout against the Commanders once again. Any remaining players - those from unaffiliated universities and never signed to an National Football League or CFL team - are considered free agents. The idea of the league is to give the sport of football a second season in the spring during the NFL offseason. The team [Orlando Apollo's] was inspired by the Greek God of the Sun, Apollo, who was also known to be an archer.

The AAF was announced in March 2018 by co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian.

Although the AAF plans to serve as a complementary league to the NFL, the Alliance plans to change areas of the NFL's policy where the fan engagement is low or that they feel are unsafe. There will be no kickoffs, no extra points after touchdowns; you are forced to attempt a 2-point conversion, in overtime the team gets the ball on their opponents 10-yard line, and the play clock will be cut down to 30 seconds. Patriots fans might recall that he has a history of influencing rule changes; after Bill Belichick's defense manhandled the Indianapolis Colts' offense in 2004, Polian - then the Colts' president - prodded the National Football League until it restricted what defenders could do to receivers downfield. Retired defensive ends Jared Allen and Justin Tuck will advise on Player Relations, as officiating consultants Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino offer up the experience they both acquired as the NFL's Vice President of Officiating.

The team will be coached by, coaching legend Steve Spurrier. Here's how the three-phase player allocation process works in the AAF. "Time will tell if we're any good". "We were going for it", he said. There were two games that had gotten a lot of fan interaction.

You obviously can't expect National Football League numbers on day one.
