When the Alliance of American Football debuted its first set of games in February 2019, there was no traditional fantasy football platform available. No Extra Points chronicles the story of the AAF but more specifically the cultivation of AAF Fantasy Football content by a couple of web developers who, like the players and coaches on the field, wanted to be a part of something bigger.
In March 2018, Charlie Ebersol announced to the world that he had been building a football league in secret. He called it the Alliance of American Football and looked to set forth where previous spring football leagues had failed. In fact the league would not make it past week eight in its inaugural season before it was shut down. However, buried under the despair, shock, and finger-pointing over its demise, there is a great story about the AAF that speaks to the very reason it was founded in the first place as a haven of second chances.
No Extra Points follows the sudden, unlikely rise of AAF Fantasy Football; a grassroots operation led by fans who looked to create something where previously there was something missing. Its a story that speaks to all the content creators who ventured forth with websites, podcasts, and other digital content to show their love of this not-for-long football league.
