In a shocking twist to the funding and viability of the Alliance of American Football. Tom Dundon, the league’s majority owner, who invested $250 million into the league in February. He told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday that the AAF in danger of folding.

The reason behind the sudden turn of events is the Alliance of American Football’s inability to secure cooperation from the NFL Players’ Association to use young players from NFL rosters.

Dundon said “If the players union is not going to give us young players, we can’t be a development league. We are looking at our options, one of which is discontinuing the league.”

However, everything is not all grim according to Benjamin Allbright.
