    CROUCH WORKING FOR THE AAFL P.R. MACHINE

    So I received an e-mail today. From Eric Crouch.

    And unlike other e-mails I've received from players or execs telling me how stoopid I am (get in line, guys), Crouch's message read like a press release disguised as a "hey, how ya doin'?" type of a message.

    The subject line gave it away. "For Mike Florio from Eric Crouch, Heisman Trophy Winner."

    I'm glad he added that last part. Otherwise, I might have confused him with "Eric Crouch, Guy who Quit the NFL." Or "Eric Crouch, Washed-Up CFL Quarterback."

    Oh, wait. They're all the same dude.

    So here's what my new pal, Eric, had to say:

    "About a month ago I received a phone call: Marcus Katz, founder and CEO of the new the All American Football League invited me to play in the new league.

    "I had heard about Katz's idea of putting new pro teams in college towns and re-creating great rivalries. I believe the New York Times called it 'Professional Football with College Spirit.'

    "So I went to Detroit last month for an AAFL workout to check it out. And I liked what I saw. And so did all the other players who attended the workout.

    "The league is starting with six teams in Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee and Michigan. The players need degrees to play. Games will be played in the Spring beginning in '08. And there are lots of great college football people involved, like Ced Dempsey, the former President of the NCAA and Gene Corrigan, the former ACC Commissioner.

    "So I signed up.

    "Nebraska won't even have a team 'till [sic] 2009, but, let me tell you, I have been stunned at how many people in Nebraska are really excited about this new league.

    "A couple of weeks ago, I was at the Florida-Auburn game and could hardly believe how long the Florida fans were willing to wait in line to get their name on the AAFL's Florida team's ticket list.

    "And besides excited fans, the league has some good players (like Fred Weary, Travis McGriff, Clint Stoerner, Tai Streets and many others with NFL experience), all of which is contributing to the League getting lots of local and national
    attention.

    "Just this week, Time Magazine, in comparing the AAFL with the UFL, which plans on playing head to head against the NFL next fall, said:

    "'The AAFL is certainly the more innovative concept of the two new leagues . . . Since there aren't enough NFL spots for all the talented University of Florida football players, the thinking goes, why not have some of them come to Gainesville, suit
    up in Gator blue, and play for the Florida AAFL team? They'd face off against teams from Tennessee and Alabama, just like the good old days.'

    "Today, I learned that Alabama Crimson Tide legend, Kenny Stabler, was named to the AAFL's Alabama board of directors and Arkansas legend Joe Ferguson was named to the Arkansas team board. And they're just the latest in a string of former
    NFL greats to get involved in the League's management.

    "One thing I know for sure is that I am ready to play some ball.

    "If how players and fans are flocking to this new league sounds like a story, I'd be happy to help any way I can."

    So thanks, Eric. Next time, though, why don't you simply offer me 40 percent of the $15 million that you're trying to wire to the country from Portugal?

    Have you? Have you really? Because I would be stunned if anybody could still be stunned by the stupid freaky **** fuskers get "really excited" about... :lol:



    Does Shanny know about this? He certainly won't be happy if the mascot starts suiting up for some other coach.... :huh:

    They all need a paycheck to eat, what are they going to say.. "The owners are morons and the league looks like ass" ?

    All the players will need degrees? Nice, it's going to be a league mad up of Ivy League all stars and kids from D-II!

    Because the NCAA is a model organization? YES! let's take an ex NCAA President. I'm disliking this league more and more!

    No really, I need cash! Do you know how many companies won't hire a whiny quitter?

    Once the FBI told me that Western Union check cashing thing I signed up for from some e-mail wasn't legit, I really had to get something going fast. I tried selling meth for a while, but my gang boss wanted me to switch from corner dealer to lookout. I'm Eric Crouch, I can't handle all the running a lookout needs to do!

    I suppose it's wait in line for tickets, or go down to the local Wal-Mart and wait for the spring line of generic Jorts!

    :dance: Forget the NFL, this seals it! When can we sign up for fantasy AAFL!

    I thought he actually died after the Huskers got anally abused worse than the girls in backdoor sluts 9 in that 2002 Orange Bowl.

    They were talking about this on the fan950 a while ago. They said that our players from CU and the surrounding schools would be on the fusker team. Can you imagine Thaddeus Washington or any other former Buffs wearing those red jersey's? There is no way i'd watch that ****. :sad2:

    Donald Strickland vs. BVP....Cage match, ultimate fighting. Now that's what I wanna watch.

    Remember when BVP spit in his face? Refs didn't call that ****.

    Why are you ****ers so cynical? I believe Eric. He's not doing this to make $$$. I know for a fact that anytime he's short on dough that he can barnstorm through Nebraska selling various photos and other items signed by Nebraska's last [and I do mean last] Heisman winner.

    With those coins jangling in his pocket, there's simply no financial reason for him to tout this new league. Obviously, he's telling the truth--this league will outshine the USFL and the XFL put together! :thumbsup:

    How sad. I suppose Tommy Frazier is next since he's been run out of NAIA coaching because he can't keep it in his pants with the co-eds. I guess a lot of these washed-up jocks never considered that once they hit 25-30 they would have to do something other than run around and read the end for a living. This is sad and pathetic. He might as well go to one of the Indian Casinos near Nebraska and shake people's hands for a dollar a piece. He apparently isn't qualified to do much else.

    People get enough football - more leagues will not work; college and the nfl have too much tradition; not sure arena ever took off in a big way. even most jocks have to join the work a day world some day = sad but true; gotta hope that major in psychology or general studies (would you like fries with that) pays off

    Eric Crouch is a waste of talent. If he wasn't so full of himself he might have made one hell of a receiver in the NFL. Noooooooooooooo he had to bitch and moan about wanting to be a QB when everyone and their brother knows an option QB doesn't work out in the NFL. Enjoy the new league moron. :sad2:
