    Iron defense is great in the red zone. And this league is full of drops.

    Clearly a reason these guys aren't in the league.

    Bama gonna be tough to beat. Good defense. Best QB in the league.

    Iron are 3-0 heading back to the Old Gray Lady to host San Antonio. This feels like a season for the history books, folks.

    Last season averaged 21,875. So the first couple weeks were comparable. This week wasn't a good sign though.

    I'd be surprised if Johnny ended up in the AAF. It's not really there for guys who failed because of character issues.

    Lawsuit alleges 'conspiracy' behind founding of VC-backed AAF
    By Kevin Dowd
    February 26, 2019
    • Share:
    An entrepreneur and VC veteran named Robert Vanech has filed a lawsuit alleging Charlie Ebersol stole the idea for the newly launched Alliance of American Football, claiming Vanech and Ebersol were actually co-creators of the league and that Vanech is owed a 50% ownership stake.

    The suit was filed last Friday, just a few days after the AAF received a $250 million commitment from Tom Dundon, a subprime lending tycoon and the owner of the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes. Dundon is also the creator of Dundon Capital Partners, a Dallas-based firm that invests in private equity and credit.

    The AAF didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The league issued a statement to other media outlets saying "Mr. Vanech's claim is without merit," and that "[t]here was never any agreement, oral or written, between Mr. Vanech and Mr. Ebersol relating to The Alliance."

    Since the announcement of its formation last year, the AAF has pitched itself as the brainchild of Ebersol (the son of famed NBC Sports executive Dick Ebersol) and Bill Polian, a longtime presence in NFL front offices. But Vanech's lawsuit presents a different story, claiming Vanech approached Charlie Ebersol with the idea for a new football league in February 2017 and that the two had a handshake agreement to evenly divide the league's equity. The document claims that Vanech is responsible for many of the AAF's notable innovations, including the idea of assigning former college stars to local AAF teams, an emphasis on Big Data and the league's focus on an in-game app.

    The suit—which you can read in full here—goes on to paint a picture of the AAF's early days, with Ebersol and Vanech both seemingly caught up in the heady rush of creating a new sports league from scratch. The suit includes a screenshot dated March 2017 that allegedly shows a proposed a cap table for the AAF that includes a 50/50 split of equity between Vanech and Ebersol, as well as documents supposedly shared with possible investors that list Vanech as the league's CFO and COO.

    Vanech alleges that everything started to change in May 2017, when Ebersol met with Keith Rabois of Khosla Ventures about investing in the AAF. Ebersol allegedly told Vanech that any money from Rabois would come "with certain conditions," including that Rabois might take over the COO position, and that Rabois wanted to re-allocate some of Vanech's equity. Vanech believed the talks were in good faith at the time, but the suit now calls them evidence "that a conspiracy had been formed to oust Vanech." By July 2017, per the suit, Ebersol was denying the existence of any agreement with Vanech, claiming they'd had only "exploratory conversations" and "high-level discussions."

    It's worth noting that Rabois, who has since announced plans to leave Khosla Ventures for Founders Fund, is listed on the AAF's website as a member of its board of directors. Kevin Freedman, who was a partner at Khosla Ventures alongside Rabois from 2015 to 2017, is now the AAF's COO.

    Rabois is named in Vanech's lawsuit as a "co-conspirator."

    Vanech is currently the CFO at Trebel Music, an on-demand music startup that was valued at $27 million in 2017. From 2012 to 2014, he was a venture advisor at AITV, which has since rebranded as Sway Ventures.

    Party with the head ball coach: Steve Spurrier cruise now accepting reservations
    SDS Staff | 2 days ago

    If you ever dreamed of going on a cruise with Steve Spurrier, now is your chance to make that dream a reality.

    The head coach of Orlando’s Alliance of American Football team is headling an event called the “Steve Spurrier Cruise” that is offering fans an opportunity to hit the high seas with the head ball coach. You can find all of the information on the cruise over at Spurriercruise.com.

    Spurrier’s entire AAF coaching staff is scheduled to be on the cruise, as well as some of the players on the team.

    Here is a description of the event from the cruise’s website:

    Mark your calendar for July 12-15, 2019 for what is certain to be the most fun football event of the year: The Inaugural Steve Spurrier Cruise.

    Picture yourself on Royal Caribbean’s beautiful msMariner of the Seas, along with fellow Coach Spurrier fans and his entire coaching staff, having fun and in-depth discussions about The Alliance of American Football, The Apollos, the players and more.

    The glorious msMariner of the Seas will be visiting the Bahamas (Nassau and Coco Cay – Royal Caribbean’s exclusive private island) – and while it’s at sea, there will be a tremendous number of all-inclusive exclusives available ONLY to those who reserve a cabin via www.spurriercruise.com.

    Exclusive events include Q&A sessions, welcome receptions with the coaches, private excursions, dining with fellow fans and coaches, beach olympics, photo and autograph sessions and plenty of time to schmooze with the Apollos coaches.

    Next Week’s Game of the Century between the hated Apollos and the beloved Iron is only available on B/R Live.

    Surely they do some negotiating to get a game of this magnitude on real TV, right?

    It's definitely hard to imagine that the match up between the only remaining undefeated teams featuring the league's star head coach stays exclusive to Bleacher Report. Would definitely be a PR hit for them.
