The AAF's mission is "to provide high-quality professional football fueled by a dynamic Alliance between players, fans, and the game".

The league will feature eight teams, and the games will be featured on CBS and NFL Network.

The ratings for the opening night of the inaugural AAF season proved just how much Americans can not get enough of football. "When Charlie approached me about this, we discussed it at great length and finally I said, 'I'm going to put my effort where my mouth is and see where we can make this work". The Steelers are actually an affiliate team for the Birmingham Iron.

It couldn't have been a better debut for the Orlando Apollos on Saturday.

If you get a chance to catch a game, you should. The AAF feels like its on to something and with cooperation from the NFL, there could be some serious weight to this new league in the years to come if the play gets better. The play clock will only run 35 seconds, five seconds shorter than the NFL.

The Apollos' head coach Steve Spurrier is no stranger to the state of Florida.

That above play right there was more than enough to go viral on social media and garner a ton of more people to tune in and watch the new upstart league in a country that absolutely loves the sport of football. The AAF says that of its more than 600 players signed to date, 98 percent have been in the National Football League at some point over the past 18 to 24 months. Sunday will now feature two more games worth of action in the new pro football league, and the nightcap of the festivities will feature the Salt Lake Stallions traveling to face the Arizona Hotshots in Western Conference action.

"We're not competitive, we're complementary", Ebersol said. "They're a partner. The goal is to improve and support the ecosystem of football". The CBS broadcast out-rated ABC's Saturday night broadcast of the Rockets vs. Thunder. After being cut by Green Bay, Warner was working in an Iowa grocery store before playing in the Arena Football League and ultimately landing with the Rams, leading them to a Super Bowl victory and being voted NFL MVP in 1999.
