After topping out at over 50 concurrent viewers three straight nights in primetime, breaking a single-game record for concurrent viewers and announcing the addition of former NFL player Ryan Moatsto the SFL Front Office on Tuesday, the SFL continues its positive momentum in Week 6 with a record seven live-called games. The only game not receiving commentary this week is Oklahoma City and San Antonio, based off of user activity.
Colin Northrup has officially joined the SFL broadcast team as a weekly contributor and Ivan Sanchez will be making his return in hopes of doing the same in the near future. This week, Michael Truilo (@lookalive24) will be calling his first game as a test game on Rabbit when the St. Louis Gladiators clash with the Tallahassee Pride.
“We are building an entire network of commentators and analysts here at the SFL,” said Commissioner Cameron Irvine. “Soon, the SFL Network will become the main place online for amateur sports commentators to improve their skills and hone their craft. We’re excited about the future of this project and the direction of many other SFL initiatives being worked out behind the scenes.”
The schedule is headlined by Sunday night’s SFL Game of the Week from Houston, where the Hyenas (5-0) will host the Alaska Storm (3-2) in a rematch of last season’s Western Conference semifinal thriller. Baltimore (3-2) @ Atlanta (4-1) headlines the afternoon slate, kicking off at 3 p.m. with Andy Hamilton.
