    I hope Trent gets another shot in the NFLbut I think unless he really shows out for the Iron then a practice squad role maybe his only shot in the NFL.

    I went to the AAF game yesterday at Legion Field and took my son and one of his friends. We had no problems or issues. Traffic flowed great into and out of the stadium, parking was great, concessions were fine, and the football was enjoyable too. I plan to go to a few more games during this season.

    I watched most of the game yesterday and some of the Orlando game earlier in the weekend. I have a positive attitude toward the league and believe that there are a lot of excellent football players out there and this league gives them a good opportunity to perform. It would be good for football for the league to be successful financially. IMO

    Is the plan for the Iron to play at the new UAB stadium when it's done? This is assuming the league last that long.

    I like what I saw on their opening weekend. They can get a game in at around 2.5 hours. And if they can develop their team around some former Bama and Auburn players, as they started to do, they'll draw a decent crowd.

    I actually saw a discusion on Twitter that said the announced attendance of 17K was actually low and several said they thought it was a good 10K more than that. If they can develop a good team and get into the new stadium I think B'ham will get behind them.

    Not a bad crowd considering the weather wasn’t the best.

    I think I saw where the crowd was announced at about 17,000. Very respectable. If that had been a UAB game the would have announced that crowd as about 38,000.
