17K paid avg in BHAM, but ITK types say there was more like 25K at the games. 

These guys have only had a little over a month together, it's going to take time.

I think it’s a big miss to not take high school grads like the XFL is going to.

Legion Field holds 63K, so 25K is going to look a little puny.

If they expand, it's only because they can get new money coming in to keep them afloat like a Ponzi scheme.

Earlier this week, majority owner Tom Dundon said the league would have to consider shuttering if the NFL Players Association refused to allow younger players on NFL rosters to play in the AAF. "If the players union is not going to give us young players, we can't be a development league," Dundon said. A source within the NFLPA told USA Today that allowing the AAF to use NFL players would violate the terms of the CBA and increase the safety risk.

Not sure if they were wanting to use players on practice squads or what  :dunno:

You guys see the story about the Orlando team having to practice in Georgia because of workers comp laws in Florida? This league must not carry workers comp insurance, lol.
