I notice that Colin Kaepernick couldn't even get a QB job with this minor league... speaks volumes about how ridiculously self serving the calls for
him to be in the NFL are.
I watched highlights of this new league, it's not bad, surprisingly. As long as they don't try to present themselves as the NFL killer, they may do
pretty well. Their biggest accomplishment may well end up being on the video game side of the field. Since EA has totally monopolized the NFL's
video game licensing, we've been stuck with Madden and nothing else where football video games are concerned. 2K Sports is likely watching this new
league closely and, if the league is financially sound and followed at the end of their first season, I'd not be surprised to see a 2K AAF game appear
for their second season. 2K NFL was arguably a better product than Madden over a decade ago when EA started hearing 2K's breath over their shoulders
and bought the sole rights to the NFL to stop their competitor from overtaking them. If 2K can put out an innovative AAF game, gamers will buy it and
ultimately follow the league, especially if 2K integrates some manner of weekly updated "fantasy" aspects of the game through the season. EA has
dabbled in that, but ultimately they ended up focusing more on the MUT concept than the live, active season fantasy football tie-ins.
