Also, the league has a bunch of bonuses for on field performance and for off field fan engagement, so the salary could end up being even higher.

As for coaching, most of these kids signing with colleges likely won't have the same coaches the whole time they are in school and some will arrive on campus with a coach they didn't even sign with.

Yeah, a football minor league hasn't worked yet, but there also has never been this amount of money in the sport.
What I read was stipend, which is different than scholarship. I’d be surprised if it pays a full ride at a school like Notre Dame. Plus, AAF doesn’t guarantee contracts. So you have last a full season to qualify for a one-year “stipend?” I dunno. It’s better than nothing but four years in actual college seems more reliable.

Re: Coaching. Of course coaches change. They will in the AAF too. But at a P5 college program, you’re going to have reasonably high-quality coaching even if the names change. And, probably more importantly, all the support staff that comes with it. Big-time programs invest a ton in facilities, training, etc., and that outlasts individual coaches. I’m dubious that any minor league that’s basically a stepping stone would do that.

Agree this will make sense for a small slice of CFP players (the three-and-out, “playing school” crowd, mainly). And there’s does seem to be more money in this than prior efforts, but that money will need to be sustainable if they’re going to compete for players with major college programs. We’ll see how that goes.

I guess this discussion was over nothing. Trevor isn't going anywhere.

AAF observes NFL rules, XFL will not. It is Brady's agent going after TL for the XFL, not the AAF.

Don Yee (Tom Brady's agent) is working with the Pacific Pro Football League. He is the one that said Adidas would like to offer him an endorsement. He is not recruiting him for the XFL. Someone else might be, but not Yee. Also the PPFL offers a one year scholarship for a community college, so I think I combined that with the AAF stipend in my mind to come up with the inaccurate premise of them giving full scholarships.

good catch.
the article i read mixed in that XFL would take younger guys, then started talking about Yee going after Lawrence.
