A catch-all in celebration of the AAF opening today! I need an AAF team.
Edited title. Congrats to the Orlando Apollos, the de-facto AAF all-time champions!
oilypenguin: That is a terrible joke and I'd ask you to be ashamed of yourself but you've been around here long enough that I know you'll be proud of it.
I don't get it, what is wrong with the times? They look mostly like an hour off of the regular NFL times and don't seem that unusual to me.
The kickoff times aren't the problem. It's the "we're going to air minor league football on ABC and FOX and expect it to not be a ratings disaster."
That's what destroyed the league the first time.

We had our developmental minor league, and it was sabotaged from within. I will be bitching about that probably for forever.
Yup. So close! Someone has to see it almost actually worked.
How did I live before digital distribution of old, cheap games?
You did live before digital distribution of old, cheap games. Now you just play games.
I would think they'd get the best ratings on the four broadcast channels, since the biggest population has them. Where should they air them? Or are you saying more like the ratings won't be high enough to sustain what ABC expects for the time slot, but the same ratings on something like ESPN 2 would be just fine?
Local and ABC and Fox are usually showing infomercials around here at those times. It's got to be better than that

Broadcast network airtime is valuable, and expensive for advertisers. You have to pull in big numbers to justify being there. There's a reason minor league baseball doesn't air on ABC.
Smaller networks mean smaller audiences but also much smaller audiences you need to pull in to be a successful broadcast. And those things don't scale evenly. Minor league sports is mostly for hardcore sports fans and they follow those broadcasts to the smaller networks.
