You watching the AAF?
It’s been pretty entertaining. Last night some dude threw a no-look, behind his head pass that actually resulted in a completion:
They're throwing no-look passes in the AAF 😳

Problem with the AAF is that the league is already struggling financially, just two weeks into the season.
According to David Glenn at The Athletic, the league was dangerously close to not being able to pay its players:
…The league was running short on cash, and quickly. Without new investors, there was a good chance it was going to miss payroll last Friday.
On Tuesday, multiple sources told The Athletic, the AAF will announce that Carolina Hurricanes majority owner Tom Dundon, a self-made billionaire from Dallas, has become that nine-figure investor. Dundon will be introduced as the league’s new chairman after last week’s commitment of $250 million enabled the AAF to meet its obligations.
That’s a lot of money. A quarter of a billion dollars for a fledgling football league that might not even have long-term viability? Dundon is going to remain in his role with the Hurricanes but is now the de facto AAF king as well.
