New football league who is watching?

So I haven't seen any games I guess I was ignoring it but today at the gym a dude was telling me it was pretty good. They just play with very few flags and defenders can smash the QB receivers whatever , he said it was like watching a taped game from 30 years ago with all the hits that would have been flagged now in the NFL but they just play.

Small highlight clip from youtube

    What day(s) are the games played?

    Thanks for the clip. Looks good. At least top 25 college quality. I'll watch!

    Have you ever been in the grocery store and a little old lady is blocking the aisle because she's looking to
    save 5 cents on a can of soup. You come up on her and try to rattle your cart a little so she'll stand aside and
    let you pass. But no. she has no awareness of her surroundings at all, a grizzly could be running loose in the
    store and she's still going to concentrate on her shopping. So you have to turn your cart around and go back
    from whence you came. Because you're a polite midwestern boy and that's how you were raised.

    That's the QB that got hit in the first clip. No awareness of who is occupying his immediate surroundings.
    I suspect he's not going to last long in that league unless he develops a little peripheral vision.

    Collecting: Patrick Mahomes rookie cards, the next great NFL quarterback.

    Some of you sports violence loving bastiges on here would have been good spectators at the Roman Colosseum around 2,000 years ago, watching the gladiators battle each other with swords and spears.

    And I mean that in a good way. :D

    I never watched the alternative football leagues either, but the NFL has left me and this looks like real football.
