The Alliance of American Football is rolling right along in its inaugural season and the playoffs are just around the corner. While the AAF started off incredibly popular with football fans badly wanting more action after the NFL season wrapped up, it’s had some great games, along with a number of forgettable ones.
One thing that seems certain is that the league will at least be around for the foreseeable future. In turn, this has led to iconic rapper Eminem taking to Twitter and sending the AAF a message informing them that he’s ready to see a team in his hometown of Detroit.
Beyond that, he’d also like to see fighting allowed as well, a comment which comes after things got a bit chippy between the Memphis Express and Birmingham Iron.
Former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was taking part in his first action with the Express in the game Eminem is referring to. The quarterback was caught talking trash on a hot mic, which went viral quickly.

For those who haven’t seen the video of Manziel’s comments to a defender, there was a quick clip of him stating that there’s “a lot of time left” when his team was trailing 19-8. From there he said “You want to start that way? We can go, I’ll turn up on your bi*** a**.”
