The studios, reliable, and marginally-attractive 100% Injury Rate (via the Orlando Sentinel) cites "published reports [of my dong, heh -- GEd.]" that the All-American Football League might have already shot its wad before it even gets onto the dance floor. Which really isn't a terrible problem to have, provided you're not a upstart professional football league.
Ah yes, the AAFL. It was an idea to create a pro league of only 4-year college graduates…and have them play at college stadiums across the country. Also, players from certain regions were supposed to only be able to be drafted by specific specific teams, so that there was some kind of connection to college fan bases.
I'm sure that the brilliant sages that set this fucker up to begin with, what with their poorly-constructed business model, inferior assemblages of talent, and gonorrhea-laden streams of revenue, would eventually admit that they overestimated the demand for spring football and gracefully admit defeat. Or blame the league's collapse on the subprime mortgage crisis and hunt down another owner at the last possible second. One of those.
Since inception, the League's finances have been indirectly tied to the $300 billion federally guaranteed student loan asset backed securities market. In August, the sub prime mortgage crisis began spreading into other sectors such as municipal bonds and federally guaranteed student loans. The situation, which was considered to be temporary at the time, has continued to worsen.
You owe it to yourself to read that last link from the AAFL page. It sounds deliciously desperate, even for a league that drafted Eric Crouch third overall. But seriously, why go out to a club when you can find a good hooker? At least if you get the hooker pregnant, you know that she'll be the one footing the bill for the abortion.
