Well...it’s football! They must not have the same rules as the NFL! De-cleated!

Been watching. Like the fast pace and physicality. They actually hit each other and dont get penalties.

Some interesting rules. No Kickoffs, ball starts on 25 yard line each possession. No extra points, teams always go for 2 points. Defense can only rush 5 players and none can be from defensive secondary if I remember correctly. There are plenty of other rule differences, but these are the ones I can remember. I'll take a look see. Can't be any worse than the NFL.

I was pretty dang impressed, with the portions of the games I watched yesterday.

Much better pace than any NFL game for sure, and they had way fewer commercials.

Loved having the coaches and players all mic'd up too. Both teams had some pretty high level talent, who didn't make it or got injured out of their NFL jobs, being given some second chances to be seen.

I liked it. I thought the speed of the game was pretty good.

If they do a good of keeping some of the college guys playing football like a Trevor Knight or a Garrett Gilbert, I am all in.

I watched the San Antonio game from start to finish which is something I rarely do with NFL. The players bust their rears and it was a good product. Looking forward to the 3pm game today.

Watched the hold game the game was very good for the first game.
No show boating and Ref's was a lot better than NFL Ref's I like the pace of game.
At first didn't think I would like the no kickoff but it keeps game a lot shorter

Any idea what kind of salary these guys draw? Surely nowhere near the NFL.

I enjoyed the parts I saw. The product will improve with some time as they work out the kinks. The defenses were a lot further along than the offenses which is normal and I think the 5 rush rule added some creative fronts that will take a couple weeks for the offensive guys to diagnose and block. I hope it makes it. Fun having a San Antonio team to root for.

the $80k year will keep the players interested, they can earn a living and focus on football so that should keep it pretty competitive. they need to do something to save Football, the NFL is destroying the game.

I will say this, watching that hit on the QB that yanked his head and body out of his helmet on the big screen lit up the whole restaurant (bar) that I was in. East Texans still love them some real football.
