    Did anyone go to the game? Were the concessions reasonably priced?

    No. In fact, his UAA assistant also supports him with his coaching for Orlando so there is some sort of cooperation or allowance by UF.

    I don't think i've ever seen a coach, in ANY sport, have the memory that Spurrier has. Dude has like a sports photographic memory. I'm speaking on this as I watch his press conference:

    I went to Raiders games the first season of the AFL, and remember watching the WFL, USFL, XFL on tv. Having the first game 40-6 is not good. They will probably have less than 10k real attendance at Atlanta’s first home game

    That was fun to watch. Boy he owned the media in that one. Funny how on a few of the stupid questions he just talked about something different, then ‘next’. And how he just up and walked off at the end.

    Sounds like he’s having fun. Now go beat San Antonio!

    The vast majority of the reaction to the first week is that the AAF accomplished their first goal of having entertaining football. This article from USA Today, AAF winners, losers: New football league dazzles in opening weekend, covers it well.

    The game is far more entertaining than an NFL game due to much faster pace with a 25 second play clock. I was uncertain about the lack of kickoffs but skipping through the double team change and commercials that a kickoff entails made the game move at a wonderful pace. More football; less dead time.

    Their revenue model is to use their real-time fantasy feature to bring in a new stream for a league. It looks like the AAF is on a good path at this point.

    I've noticed that, too. The only coach that might be able to top him in that regard is Joe Madden in MLB.
