As much as I feel sorry for the players I don't. Though I could say as much as I don't feel sorry for the players I do. I have to admit I'm in the group that's saying that the players that are now out of work weren't good enough to be in the NFL, and maybe should have something to fall back on. For example, their degree and/or a skill acquired prior to their professional career
That being said, it sucks for the players. This league was never going to work. Total poor planning which could've been better. It's sad because people are unemployed; really while it was inevitable, it would have been nice if they completed their season
Sorta hope Mr. McMahon changes his mind. Although I think he might figure out what went wrong and produce a more successful product
IMO, the football fix is overrated. Several people mentioned this over the past couple days and during the AAF season, for your "football fix" you didn't need more football. The Combine, Draft, Hall of Fame, TV Shows, Drama, and Free Agency Period was more than good enough. Several people have said that the buildup and stories were better than the game!
As much as I love football, the love has lasted due to management of viewing football. Post Superbowl it's over, and it's emotional. However, by August I ready to go back to football.
No defense for the players having to pay for their flights home. I don't care whether it was obvious that the AAF would fail; that is messed up since it appears that it came as a total surprise, and it's still messed up
