Why not. I'm curious to see what we have. I'd be a lot more curious if it was possible to watch your local team every week. Sounds like CBSports is just doing the national game of the week.

Did a little research and learned with an 8 team league there will be 4 games per week. 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. What's cool is that all the games look like they will be broadcast somewhere. For example:

6. How can I watch?
The first AAF game is on Feb. 9, between Atlanta and Orlando, is on CBS. Going forward, there’ll be a game per week on CBSSN, with those streamed on the AAF’s website.
TNT will broadcast one regular season and one playoff game per season, per Sports Business Journal. The NFL Network’s going to take two games per week and will broadcast a total of 19 games.

League co-founder Bill Polian, an ESPN NFL analyst, said the league will give players three-year, non-guaranteed contracts worth $250,000 each.
Players can leave the league, which is set to kick off Feb. 9, to go to the NFL. Polian said it's currently unclear whether a player's rights will revert back to the AAF after a three-year period expires or if the clock stops ticking on a team's three-year rights when a player gets "called up" to the big time.
Salaries will be in line with AAF competitor the XFL, which has said it will pay players an average of $75,000 per season. That league launches in 2020.
Polian said a contract will include state-of-the-industry health insurance and an education stipend to any player who completes a year in the league.


Best of luck to all the players.
