After several changes, the AFL is finally back in action starting next month.
I've been following the Tennessee Valley Vipers for years in AF2, and am very glad they were chosen to move up to the AFL now (also changed their name to the Alabama Vipers).
The AFL also has a contract with NFL Network to show some games this year.

My guess is for a slow start, but if there really is a lockout in 2011 in the NFL... people will need a football fix big time
