It hasn’t even been a full week since Super Bowl 53 ended, and you’re still itching for more football, aren’t you? Why else would you have clicked on this link if you weren’t searching for that next fix?

Well, I’m happy to indulge your addiction, because I, too, am a Football User.

The Alliance of American Football kicks off on Saturday, and it will be an opportunity to watch football players that are hungry to play the sport they love but were overlooked or rejected from the NFL level.

Want to know what former Lions receiver Dontez Ford is up to? The AAF has got you (San Diego Fleet). Are you devoted to #HackenWatch? The AAF has your answer (starting quarterback Memphis Express). Want to see what the NFL would look like with a cool, new alternative to onside kicks and without kickoffs and extra points? A-freakin’-AF.

There’s some real intrigue to a league that seems to be taking itself a lot more seriously than an ill-conceived XFL league, so I’m personally curious as to what this may look like. If you’re along the same lines, here’s how you can watch this weekend’s slate of four games.
