Football League Can’t Even Work in Texas?
In Texas football is king. To get the opportunity to play on the professional level in the lone star state has got to be a dream come true. Unfortunately, that dream came to a screeching halt for the entire squad of the San Antonio Commanders last Tuesday when the Alliance of American Football (AAF) suspended all football operations.
What's the Alliance of American Football? Blink and you may have missed it. The AAF is an eight-team professional football league that held it's inaugural game just two months ago.
Not only did Texas potentially lose a team, but the championship game was to be held at the Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas at the end of the month.
The positive is all is not lost for the players. Allowed to leave their contracts, a handful of athletes have signed with NFL teams. Including Commanders Quarterback Logan Woodside to the Tennessee Titans.
Competing with the NFL has never been a great idea. Especially when most Texans would rather watch high school ball. The XFL is back next year, good luck.
