The Alliance of American Football ended operations yesterday after seven weeks of football, including the Memphis Express.  Singletary, Manziel, Mettenberger, Ebersol, Polian, Irby, and Lewis are done and will now live in the lore of past minor league franchise experiments in Memphis football history.

“I’m just sad so many worked so hard and we came so close.” “There’s room for only one (secondary league) in the space.” -Polian

On 92.9’s @GolicAndWingo ~> Bill Polian acknowledged the AAF didn’t have a solid business structure. Said football infrastructure was good. Said the AAF rushed to market because of a “competitor”. Wanted to be first to market ( presumably due to @xfl2020 )
