I was curious if there was any video anywhere of the AFL test games? The ones between the 1986 Rockford Metros/Chicago Politicians and the 1987 Chicago Bruisers/Miami Vice. I've looked on Youtube, and didn't find anything. Can't even find any pics of the games.

There are certainly a few pics (we have one on our Twitter feed today).

I'm not sure of any video though.... Foster may have some that maybe someone could convince him to let see the light of day at some point.

Sweet! Great Pics. Yea, I remember something from about maybe 20yrs ago, don't know if it was a documentary or anniversary show or whatever. But, I remember them playing some video of the 1986 test game and telling about how the AFL started. Dont remember much. Got the idea in my head after I streamed a couple of IFL and CIF games the last couple of weeks. Thought it be kinda cool to watch it with my son.

This is a small, VERY small snippet of the ESPN story from the 1986 "Test Game" in this 25th Anniversary video the league produced.

I too wish this entire story was online.
