Anyone watching AAF? It's... Interesting

How does one watch it?  (As in, is it televised, etc.?)

There's another game today at 4.

I was encouraged that it wasn't gimmicky (only thing is mandatory 2 pt conversions) and seemed to eliminate a lot of the ticky tack calls that have infiltrated the NFL game

Edit: today's game is only on CBS Sports network which very few of us will have

The NFL could learn a thing or two (I know it's affiliated) from the AAF.  We are a blood thirsty culture.

Brings me back to my question:  CBS or some weird channel that's on a 300 tier?

I added in my edit. The 4pm game is only on CBS Sports Network which is a premium channel I don't get. The 8pm is on NFL Network though

So is he?  It would be pretty crazy if he actually was and I accidentally stumbled upon that one.

LeBron is just such an annoying, insufferable egotistical ass hat it's not even funny

But

His narcissism does give us this though, which is funny:

Image result for lebron bench lakers

 

Go to an NBA game and look at the benches throughout the game. At some point you'll catch this same view with various players around the league. A lot of guys sit at the end to either get some medical attention, stretch out or whatever the hell else people that are good at sports do. Vince Carter once had two fans sit in between him and the rest of the team.

I was surprised when I actually saw that picture.  The talking heads played it up like the team was shunning Lebron.  From the picture, it's very clear that he chose to sit off on his own.  Whatever the reason was, it doesn't immediately point to "the team hates/is sick of him" angle that was played up for a day or two.

Come on, fess up. Who's watching Daytona? 

The beach or the 500 mile race?  Answer: Neither.  Funny how an area with no snow can still produce a 21 car pile-up...

San Diego has the second best weather / climate in the world.  Maderia, Portugal, home of CR7, is number 1.
