The AAF is pretty much over, and people don’t seem overly pleased.

Football operations were suspended Tuesday, which means it’s almost certainly never coming back. That’s unfortunate because people want as much football as possible. (RELATED: Alliance Of American Football Suspending Operations)

Check out some of the reactions around Twitter after news broke.

It truly is a damn shame. I thought the AAF was going to be awesome, and it was over in eight weeks. I hope something gets figured out down the road or that the XFL is a home run. (RELATED: Johnny Manziel Throws For 48 Yards, Rushes For 20 In AAF Debut)

The craving for spring football is real, and people want it.

Now, I have to wonder what a lot of the players will do. I imagine this is the end of the road for most of them. The NFL probably won’t take many, and some will obviously head to the XFL.

As for everybody else, it doesn’t look like there are a lot of options out there. Again, this is just a shame. I was really enjoying it, and it looks like a lot of other people were too.

Let’s all hope Vince McMahon runs a bit of a better product that lasts longer than two months.
