Spotlight: The American Flag Football League

On June 27, the AFFL will host its inaugural game at 6:30 p.m. at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif. – home to the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer. While San Jose isn’t a traditional football market, it’s within a stone’s throw of Santa Clara, the home of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.

Avaya Stadium holds right over 18,000 spectators, which might just be the perfect size for the league’s first event. Lewis believes MLS stadiums such as this one could help the league evolve and expand.

“One of the things about going to sporting events is, whether you watch them on TV or attend them in person, it just feels better when a game is well attended. So, if we played at the big house at [University of Michigan] and we had 50,000 people there, it would look like no one showed up. We are very interested in all of these Major League Soccer stadiums because, basically, all over the country now you have these 15,000 to 20,000 seat outdoor facilities that are 10 years old. If we put 10,000 people in [Avaya Stadium] and we seat them properly, it will feel full, it will feel like it’s important – it’ll feel fun.”

At the end of the day, fun is the emphasis of the AFFL and Lewis doesn’t want that getting lost in the numbers – but only time will tell if it can outlast the XFL and the United States Football League.

“We are football fans, we want it to feel like football,” Lewis declared. “We don’t want people to say I’m watching flag football, we want them to say football.”

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
