  • Eric Crouch headlines tryout for AAFL

    http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/news/story?id=3018260

    The new All-American Football League held a tryout today in Detroit. Eric Crouch was among those who tried out. i for one am looking forward to this new league but am upset by the lack of a west coast program. It seems to be centralized in the south with teams in Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Detroit, and an undetermined city in Texas

    I heard about this and it sounds like a good idea. It seems like it will be a great place for guys like Crouch who can't make it in the NFL.

      I'm a huge fan of the rule that all players must have a college degree. It gives the guys who worked just as hard in the classroom a chance to play pro football

        Does the season start this year or next? I thought it was early 2008

        Chris Leak seems interested too

          I can't believe Vladimir Quanker is still playing. Even Matrio LaCasse.

            It doesn't have to be a league rule, but I'd love to see an NFL team adopt that policy.

              I would prefer college to adopt the NFL policy first.

                  Shane Matthews will be the head coach of the Gainesville, Florida team. So far the following players have been named to that team

                  Travis McGriff, Ran Carthon, Judd Davis, Chris Doering, Tony George, Willie Jackson, Steve Rissler, Fred Weary and Eli Williams.

                    Sounds like a good idea. Should give fans of the NFL something to get excited about before the actual football season kicks off.

                          How would you guys put together teams? Make up your own roster.

                            I don't know about the rest of my team, but my quarterback would definitely be Scott McBrien, and my WR's would be Latrez Harrison, Steve Suter, and Jo Jo Walker.

                              can NFL players play in this league during summer to stay in shape?

                              Of course I am not talking about starters of nfl team but can a practice squad player play there to showcase his ability and prove that he can play?

                              I am thinking bobby sippio he has nothing left to prove in the AFL and barely missed the 53 roster in KC. Imagine he passes the whole year on PS never dressing up, is that conceivable? Or will it be too much stress on his body?

                              I really don't know I am just wondering
