  • AAF spring football league kicked off Saturday night

With week one in the books, things are actually looking pretty good.

The new spring professional league debuted Saturday night and lived up to the hype. Almost 21,000 people showed up and saw the Apollos beat the Atlanta Legends, 40-6, with Spurrier, 73, coaching for the first time since 2015.

"We know we're going to have some tricks up our sleeve", Gilbert said about playing in Spurrier's system. Of course, they were.

"I think the fans had a good time tonight, didn't they?"

Along the way, Spurrier took a page out of the Philadelphia Eagles' playbook. He'll be in San Antonio on Saturday night to watch the Commanders play the San Diego Fleet - broadcast by CBS in prime time - and in Tempe on Sunday night to see the Arizona Hotshots host the Salt Lake Stallions. In the NFL, Goodell would probably ban Washington for life for a hit like that.

Fire extinguished at automated complex of Britain's Ocado

According to Darren Rovell, the two AAF games had a 2.1 rating, beating out the 2.0 rating claimed by the Houston Rockets-Oklahoma City Thunder game on ABC. Its debut, with two games on CBS, was up against a great National Basketball Association matchup between James Harden's Houston Rockets and Russell Westbrook's Oklahoma City Thunder on ABC, a fantastic game that ended with a comeback Thunder win.

Overall, it was kind of fun, with Sunday promising the debut of former San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary as the coach of the Memphis Express in a 4 p.m.

Dennis Erickson is head coach in Salt Lake and will face off against Arizona's Rick Neuheisel. A ninth member of the officiating crew, a "SkyJudge," will sit in the press box and "use real-time technology to correct clear errors involving player safety anytime during a game, and pass interference inside of five minutes left in the fourth quarter", the AP reported. Some of those changes are that there are no kickoffs or extra points - teams must always go for two after a touchdown- the play clock is 35 seconds instead of 40 seconds and there are no television timeouts.

It was a night of balance as the Apollos looked strong holding Atlanta to just six points, both field goals and caused four turnovers. They also had three interceptions with linebacker Terence Garvin having two of them and returning one 51-yards for a touchdown. And games can end in a tie.
