American Alliance of Football: Viewers guide for Michigan fans

American Alliance of Football: Viewers guide for Michigan fans

February 9, 2019

The American Alliance of Football begins its inaugural season today. In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a brief rundown of the league from CBS Sports (LINK).

Here’s a game-by-game breakdown of what to watch for Michigan fans:
Saturday, February 9 @ 4:00 p.m. EST: San Diego Fleet (no Michigan players) @ San Diego Commanders (DL Matt Godin)
Saturday, February 9 @ 8:00 p.m. EST: Atlanta Legends (RB Denard Robinson) vs. Orlando Apollos (RB De’Veon Smith)
Sunday, February 10 @ 4:00 p.m. EST: Memphis Express (CB Channing Stribling) @ Birmingham Iron (Ty Isaac)
Sunday, February 10 @ 8:00 p.m. EST: 
Arizona Hotshots (no Michigan players) vs. Salt Lake Stallions (no Michigan players)

I’m throwing my fandom behind the Atlanta Legends, not only because of Denard Robinson but because I actively dislike players on the other teams with Michigan players.

Both Saturday games will be broadcast on CBS.

    I know it’s watered down in talent, but I’ll put a game or two on this season

      Football can be fun to watch at any level, as long as the talent is balanced. I don’t want to watch a blowout unless I’m invested in the game somehow. But high school football, DII football, NFL football, etc. can all be fun to watch if the game is close.
