Be fair to all the players not just the ones from the AAF. There are other players out there. An invite tryout is lazy. You already know who you want to bring in. Each team should have a 2 day tryout inviting at least 100 players per day. Then choose 100 to camp and narrow it down to your 52 players. That is fair. Vince build an empire by giving people the opportunity to make a name for themselves like THE ROCK and others. In other words EARN IT. The same should be done with the XFL.
