The Alliance of American Football hopes to draw in football fans
during the NFL’s offseason. But similar leagues have fallen as
quickly as they rose

Wearing an Alliance of American Football-branded varsity jacket
and a slightly dazed expression, Charlie Ebersol bounced into the
press room after the game and declared his delight that the new
league was trending on Twitter and its app was zooming off the
virtual shelves of the Google and Apple stores.

“The intensity was outstanding,” said his fellow co-founder,
Bill Polian, one of the most garlanded executives in NFL history.
“Our hope was that this would look like real pro football and
that’s exactly what it looked like.”
