A lot of people (not just players) had their jobs pulled out from under them.
    Not every game was televised. About 1/4 of them were streaming. The others bounced around among 3 stations. I actually had to search for games to be able to watch one

    I figured it would happen, its very difficult for other football leagues to survive unlike the NFL or NCAA.

    It’s college baseball mode, perhaps a few Mariners games.

    There were only four games per week and each one was on either CBS, CBS Sports Network or the NFL Network. My Playstation Vue package carries all three. By your logic, the Clemson-Alabama NCAA Championship Game wasn't televised because it was carried on ESPN.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    Not really. I could not watch every game. I had to stream 1 game each week if I wanted to watch them. Not all were on the 3 stations you noted

    I needed Bleacher Report Live to see those games

    Apparently, beginning in Week 3, one game out of the four was only available by streaming (these were also streamed on YouTube). I did not realize this because the team I followed had always been carried by one of the networks. I can see where fans of Salt Lake and Orlando were the ones most often screwed by this. Still, the AAF was carried live on a network/cable station more than 75% of the time.

    Reminds me when I was working cable tv and we'd get complaints on Sundays from idiot Cowboys fans anytime Dallas wasn't on Channel 7. The all-time champ was the one who called us to complain about his reception of the Cowboys game after he had taken his portable tv outside so he could smoke on the patio and had not hooked the tv up to a cable connection.
