It seems as though Eminem is a big fan of the Alliance of American Football. He’s such a fan that he’s asking for a team in Detroit and a couple of rule changes.
PLEASE ENTERTAIN THIS THOUGHT REGARDING THE @AAFIRON @AAFEXPRESS GAME: ALLOWING THE PLAYERS TO ACTUALLY FIGHT WOULD BE KEY TO LEAGUE’S SUCCESS LIKE HOCKEY, I WOULD WATCH EVERY GAME (EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NO DETROIT TEAM YET – HINT). DON’T BLOW IT.

While watching Johnny Manziel make his AAF debut, Manziel talked trash to a Birmingham Iron defender and sent the league a tweet of a rule change to ponder.
In the tweet, Em said, “allowing the players to fight would be key to league’s success like hockey. I’d watch every game. even though there’s no team in Detroit. Hint.”
Detroit is not a bad idea for a future franchise. Let me know if you want in on it.

The tweet got a response from the CEO of the league Charlie Ebersol, and while he was open to a team in Detroit, he made no mention of the fighting.
