The History Of Upstart Football Leagues, From AAF To XFL | Always Late With Katie Nolan

RSS - The History Of Upstart Football Leagues, From AAF To XFL | Always Late With Katie Nolan Sport News Today

Always Late with Katie Nolan takes a deep dive into the history and present of upstart football leagues outside the NFL, including the Alliance of American Football (AAF) which debuted in February 2019 and was called by one radio host "not half bad," Vince McMahon's XFL which will be rebooted in 2020 and seems to have an affinity for really slow raps, the United States Football League (USFL) which has a connection to a prominent current politician, and the American Flag Football League which is WAY tougher than you'd think. Nolan also introduces her own offshoot, the Federation of Always Late Alliance Football League, which has a really sick promo video (18:42).

    Why does ESPN have a fake comedy show? It’s horrible. Also I see ESPN is protecting its relationship with the NFL by bashing these two leagues. Be very funny if one of them becomes a real competitor to the NFL. I loved the XFL when it came out in 2001. I think this time it could work.

    Are those jokes? They’re sorta unrecognizable when you hear them

  8. Eddie Suen

    “pearl harbor was sad” wow just wow

  9. Jose Vasquez

    Is that a laugh track on a live show???

  10. arrin villareal

    Football should be all year round.

  11. EliteMavsFan3

    Did they really just make a joke about Pearl Harbor. Like she’s sexy af but terrible for Espn 😭

  12. Anthony Davis trade By Lakers is nothing close to my dream of Katie Nolan trade ESPN for BANGBROS.

  13. Ryan Hollins

    “Always Right with Ryan Hollins (NBA Superstar and top tier analyst” coming April 2019!

  14. This show would be so much better if Katie Nolan didn’t host it.

  15. Ryan Hollins

    Smh why does Katie keep hitting on me in subliminal ways. I understand that everyone loves Ryan Hollins (NBA Superstar and top tier analyst Ryan Hollins), but like… give me some space.

    How is it that people who host shows on ESPN do not understand the AAF and the new XFL are not competing with the NFL.

  17. Hiram Carrero

    Love Arena football!!

  18. Not for nothing, the FALAFL sounds like something I’d watch…

  19. Lil Drip Tune

    The NFL paid ESPN big money for this one πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
