    Yeah, it's pretty hard to judge the teams, based on their very first ever games......but you can get a feel for some individual talent at the skill positions. The QB for Arizona looks pretty good, for instance.

    I had it on in the background for curiosity and because I'll tune in just to give it a ratings boost. I want to see a second league that both acts as a farm system and puts pressure on college ball.

    I really think there would be a lot of benefit to this. Some positions, like QB, OL, DB, really need something like this where players who aren't NFL ready can learn to be pros. I think it makes the NFL better if they can eventually reach an agreement with a league like this.

    They should let players juice. And also, tackle.

    A lot of people seemed to like it. We'll see how good it can be long-term. I say if it reaches the peak of Arena Football in the early 2000s then it will be successful.

    I watched the SA Commanders and San Diego
    last night.

    It was interesting

    I liked the mics on the refs as they did the calls.

    That was interesting.

    The NFL could do that for me.

    Might cut down on the bad calls some if we can all hear how they do it and what they are saying.

    AZ Hot Shots game was pretty good last night. Fans were into it. Lots of things to fix for game management though. Limited merchandise and what they did have, they sold out quickly. Concessions are very limited. "Souvenir" cup is an Arizona State one.

    Hotshots have 4 or 5 kids on defense and a WR (Ross) with NFL futures.

    - Greg Ward WR for San Antonio. Showed good hustle & atheticism.
    - Luis Perez QB for Birmingham. Showed decent accuracy. But lack of legit pass rush helps.
    - John Wolford QB for Arizona. Same as Perez

    These QBs are getting snaps they’d likely never get in an NFL camp. That can’t hurt

    The OLs for SA & AZ both looked good. SA also had some guys on DL with decent pass rush moves. OL can have a big learning curve in the NFL, so more game snaps help them too

    These guys have potential to be quality NFL dept.

    Karter Schult will probably get another shot in the NFL, he looked like a man among boys yesterday.

    I'll have to check out the next SA game if it is televised. Daryl Johnson being their GM has me very curious about them.

    I am watching for off season football entertainment, Cowboy hopefuls, and curiosity. I think they should adopt that NFL European football policy of sending a roster player to develop in the AAF ie. Rico Gathers.

    I think a few of us decided right then that San Antonio is our team. ;)

    I was pretty impressed with the product on the field being that it was a first game. It was like watching 2 good college teams if I had to put a label on it.

    I hope it succeeds. It's nice having a football team in San Diego again.

    I tried to look at it like the first NFL preseason game and I thought they played better than that.

    That's going to be my biggest problem getting into it. Geographically, no team is close to an area I care about, so I've got nobody to root for.

    Hard to get into a league without a favorite team.
