And they were watching again after CAFL SS Weekend 4
- Updated: October 23, 2016
Let me tell you what the most impressive thing is here. Earlier in the week, we saw that the Chinese Football League brings the HEAT when it comes to touchdown celebrations. But there’s this trend in the world today where as soon as something good happens, that trend immediately gets killed within a week. I’ll be the first person to point the finger at ourselves here at Barstool Sports [dot] com for contributing to that. With that being said, it would be very easy for the Shanghai Skywalkers to show up to their next game and find a way to ruin this for everybody. But instead they go out and pull a stunt like this… and it was awesome. An incredible amount of showmanship went into this celebration. From the planning to the execution. Top notch. Makes me wish Roger Goodell was never born so we could see something like this every Sunday without resulting in 500 yards worth of flags.
P.S. – great fat guy move by #24 to not even participate. Assessed the situation. Realized one round of Duck Duck Goose wasn’t worth having to sit down on the ground just to stand back up in 5 seconds, and said fuck it. Love a man with conviction like that.

With the official announcement of approval from the China government, the new professional league will be called CAFL (China Arena Football League), and the Beijing based operating company, formerly known as Ganlan Media International, will carry the same name.
“We think this acronym says it all,” said David Niu, the President of AFL Global, the founding corporation based in Conshohocken, PA, USA. “The league, and all of our efforts, are unique to China. We want to highlight the fact that we are playing American-style football, not to be confused with soccer. And we want to emphasize that this is China’s first ever professional league, played by the best players in the world.”
Many of the rosters will feature Chinese players, who have been learning and training for the arena game specifically for over a year, at 6 select Chinese Universities, under the guidance of AFL Global.
CAFL headquarters are located in Beijing, with leadership comprised of senior media executives and sports professionals with an array of government and commercial experience.
