The Alliance of American Football Folds Before Seasons End
The Alliance of American Football or the AAF as we came to know it, has closed its doors of business due to the lack of financial backing that it was hoping it would receive from the National Football League.
The Alliance of American Football did not even complete its first season before closing up shop. Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon pledged a $250 million investment to the AAF. The billionaire hockey owner had to bring financial aid to the league in only the second game of the season.
Dundon was denying reports that the league was having financial complications with their payroll. The league did not even complete their inaugural season that started in February. The league only completed eight games of their scheduled 10 game season.
