Atlanta Legends

The Legends are Atlanta’s new pro football team. But will their league survive to see a second season?

It’s called the Alliance of American Football. It's billed as a spring developmental league for the NFL and an off-season football and gambling fix. But the history of American football is littered with pro leagues that failed. Will the AAF be different?

Nicknamed the "party with a purpose," the annual event, which this year took place at Cobb Galleria Centre, brings in a chef to represent each of the 32 NFL teams, as well as a "player rep" for each team—former players, many of whom are Pro Football Hall-of-Famers.
