WEEKEND OBLONG SPHEROID REPORT: 2/15 - 2/17

New, 5 comments

A little abbreviated this week due to prep for baseball opening day, let’s hit the highlights

  • AAF Opening weekend was a rousing success....for some teams. We await the benching of the Hackenberg and the return of the #MettShow. This weekend sees the AAF’s only game of the season on TNT, with TurnerSports moving their one game a week from there on onto their BR Live platform. We also learned last weekend that any AAF game not on CBSSN will likely be streamed on the AAF website.
  • There’s more Rugby going on than you can shake a stick at. NRL All-Star games, the Indian Ocean Super Rugby league kicks off, plus PRO14, MLR, and World Club Challenge
  • Women’s Aussie Rules enters Round 3. I hope to go into more detail next week, but my takeaway so far is that the games seem lower scoring than the men’s side. Not sure if that’s because of the league or the new AFL rule set that’s in play.
  • Up Next: Arena football (small f) returns next weekend in the western US when the Indoor Football League kicks off. Arena Football (Big F) wont be back in action until July.
