The Alliance of American Football, a league most people probably couldn’t name one team from before this week, debuted on Saturday night.
Its debut, with two games on CBS, was up against a great NBA matchup between James Harden’s Houston Rockets and Russell Westbrook’s Oklahoma City Thunder on ABC, a fantastic game that ended with a comeback Thunder win.
And the AAF posted better television ratings.
Darren Rovell reported that, according to his sources, the AAF did a 2.1 overnight rating while a marquee NBA matchup between the league’s last two MVPs did 2.0.
Does this prove once and for all that football > basketball?
People love the pigskin, and gamblers love betting on football.
