Former NFL players involved in new football league

The inaugural eight-team, 10-game Alliance of American Football season will kick off February 9, 2019 - the week after Super Bowl LIII - as a league that executives describe as "complementary" to the NFL. It hopes to start next year, right after the Super Bowl on February 9, 2019.

Chief investors include Thiel's Founders Fund and the Chernin Group, which owns a majority stake in Barstool Sports.

Ebersol also backed up his announcement by revealing a media plan, which was not included in McMahon's unveiling of his reborn league.

Three things to know about Texas A&M, Michigan's next opponent
Texas A&M didn't have any problems scoring in the first half of the 7-seed Aggies' 86-65 over 2-seed North Carolina on Sunday. It's the second straight year the titleholder has been bounced from March Madness before the Sweet 16.

The AAF had several notable NFL names involved in its launch, including former Central-Coosa football and basketball standout Justin Tuck, who retired after the 2015 season, his 11 as an NFL defensive end. Dick Ebersol will serve on the league's board of directors. Either way, there hasn't been any buzz about the XFL since Vince's online press conference, and the rival league is beating him to the punch with a television deal and by starting a year earlier than the XFL's 2020 relaunch. One regular-season game will air each week exclusively on cable outlet CBS Sports Network. Their strategy is going after the diamonds in the rough who seemingly get overlooked. Like others before them, Polian and Ebersol say they have a formula for success.

The league will have eight teams, and the cities will be announced in the next three months. The losing team will just start on its own 35-yard line with fourth-and-10. Also, there will no extra points, only two-point conversions after scores, and a 30-second play clock. If the team converts they can keep going. The inaugural match will be broadcast on CBS, as will the championship game. Assuming neither league will try to pull a USFL and try to lure top talent from the NFL with huge contracts, the AAF and XFL will be having bidding wars for players who aren't good enough to be on one of the NFL's 32 53-man rosters.

"Fifty-nine million people play fantasy and 20 million people play only fantasy football", Ebersol. "We have to be able to take advantage of the people who just stop playing fantasy when the National Football League season ends".

In terms of results we have, but in terms of where we want to go as a team, we are moving forward. You never really find out about yourselves unless you have these runs.

Sports agent Donald Yee announced last year his plans for Pacific Pro Football, a league with four teams based in Southern California that would give 18- to 21-year-olds a professional alternative to college football.

The league will be comprised of players that didn't quite make the NFL cut (duh) and it will also have a number of former stars in advisory and front office roles. Maybe the two friends see this as some sort of situation like the Monday Night Wars where direct competition made WWE and WCW better but I can't see this happening here. Now there's another league that seems to be more intent on competing with the XFL than the NFL. "There are tens of thousands of players who don't have a job, which translates into hundreds of Kurt Warners" - a reference to the quarterback who spent time playing in the indoor Arena Football League before putting together a Hall of Famer career in the NFL.

They now have a multi-year deal with CBS.
