Doesn't take an accountant to figure out that with a payroll of roughly 7 million per team and attendance in the mid teens that this is not financially feasible. Especially when there is only 5 home games and no TV contract.

The quarterbacking in this league is just brutal.  If they are going to skew the rules one way they need to skew them to offense.

If I'm a receiver I'm signing with the CFL over this crap.  CFL sends a lot of receivers to the NFL, this league the QB's are so brutal you aren't getting a chance to make plays.

The poor quality of play in vast empty stadiums. I can't see a lot of fans looking forward to watching. Be interesting to know the ratings after week 2.

Maybe Winnipeg can find the receiver they need in the aaf dispersal draft. ;)

It's unfortunately that most of what I've heard about increases coming to our CBA will be basically given to the top players. I'd rather bump up the minimum salary a bit. I wonder how often we convince a star player not to try the NFL with a big contract compared to how many players we could attract to the league with a higher minimum contract.

The CFLPA are run by Canadian offensive linemen who as a group are higher paid than most other positions as rookies. Only the lower draft picks play for minimum. They could care less about the entry level as most Canadian OL will be paid above that. They have basically taken over running the Association. That is why the money goes to the vets & not the rooks. And it's hurting the CFL.

Yeah..but is that sustainable..and what if other cities are pulling in low teens..or worse

And now they missed payroll after the second week, and had to have an NHL owner fork over a whack of cash to keep them afloat..I give that league maybe till end of first season

👁‍🗨 From that article..

The AAF has only played two weeks, and before Dundon's investment, Week 3 was in jeopardy,” according to The Athletic's report.

👁‍🗨 Here’s a line for you:

"This was a terrific opportunity for Tom to expand his investment in the sports world," Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said. "The AAF is off to an exciting start as a league and was founded on some truly unique and groundbreaking concepts.

3 weeks...really?

Probably all sort of tax implications to invest that money.  They must have a lousy TV deal if they were on the verge of collapse after Week 3.

I hope Vince is watching...

From what I've been reading, they bought time on CBS to air the games. 

No cash flow.
