The AAF is Dead, Long Live the AAF


Matthew Freedman and Ian Hartitz pour one out for the now-defunct Alliance of American Football. They reminisce over the league’s highs and lows – the rise and fall of Aaron Murray, the reintroduction of Johnny Football to American television sets, world-record dog frisbee tosses and more.
