AAF allegedly tried to sell to XFL before folding

As you know, the AAF suspended football operations yesterday. According to Clay Travis, the AAF actually approached Vince McMahon about buying their league because of the lack of money for a second year. McMahon declined, finding they had nothing he didn’t already have to offer.

Ben Kercheval of CBS Sports is also reporting that the conversations with the AAF and the XFL actually go back to December of last year, prior to the AAF debut. It seems that the AAF hasn’t been as financially stable as they lead everyone to believe, which is very unfortunate for the players, coaches, employees and fans of the league.

It’s also worth noting that since the AAF has folded there has been word that the XFL has spoken to the AAF about purchasing various assets. There is no specifics on what exactly they are looking to acquire, but I would think along the lines of technology and equipment, rather than names and logos.
