That article doesnt mention money issues. Ive read conflicting reports about that, and dont know enough about that.
Ref: NFLPA, I dont understand why the AAF needs young players from active NFL rosters for a start
Im sure itd be good for marketing, but:<1% of college kids get drafted so fewer teams have close to a 99% increase on the player pool for a start
Then theres players that get cut off at the 53 man d/line. So theres another tranche.
Then you have the off-season cuts. Theres some more
Also unsure about how HCs are going to feel when one of their young players goes down to IR or has career ended (and we can never rule either out) in off-season football, just to boost a vehicle that doesnt affect their job security, is going to go across too well.
If they want to be a farm system for NFL a la baseball? Thats great.
for player development, esp in a crowded environment.
But that co-operation and business plan to involve NFL youngsters shouldve been secured beforehand
, surely if its that intrinsic to any success/ failure - certainly not mid-season.
Still, where Polian's involved, little surprises me.
Hope they sort it all out.
