What if before you could apply anywhere, companies got to pick you and tell you where you would work? That’s what it’s like to be drafted by a pro team. I know, I know — oh, boo-hoo, the poor little instant millionaires have to play a game for a living, how sad they can’t choose […]
Sometimes as an author, fans do thing that catch you completely off-guard.
Case in point, actress (and die-hard GFL-fan) Allie Press. Allie is receiving proton radiation therapy in a device she describes as “this Stargate-looking mother-fluffer,” shown in the photo, above. One of the therapists spends her lunches painting the patients’ masks. Allie’s mother, Julie Press, suggested Allie get hers painted like a Krakens helmet. As you can see, the results were amazing.
“When the docs took my blood, they were surprised to see it was orange & black.”
— Allie Press

Advanced 3D-printing technology is being used to make new helmets. Well, helmet liners, anyway, but this is still ground-breaking stuff. Helmet manufacturer Riddell has teamed up with the company Carbon for a process that involves first scanning a player’s noggin, then 3D-printing seven custom, form-fitting helmet pads that perfectly fit said noggin. The NFL is the primary […]
We’re gearing up for the first season of the Alliance of American Football, and with it, the San Diego Fleet. Empty Set Entertainment, the publisher of the GFL series, is locked in San Diego. Everyone in our company already has an allegiance to a team —but those teams are in the NFL. The AAF is […]
TV shows about American football come and go. By our count (a 10-second time investment at the speed of Google), there are currently five football shows. Three of these are documentary-style non-fiction: QB1: Beyond the Lights and Last Chance U, both on Netflix, and Hard Knocks, which is on HBO. As for dramatic fiction series, up until […]
A new pro football league is prepping for launch. The Alliance of American Football, or AAF, will kickoff in February, 2019, one week after the NFL’s Super Bowl LIII. The AAF will consist of eight teams (including one in San Diego, home of our company, Empty Set Entertainment. As of July 30, 2018, the league […]
In writing the GFL series, I wanted to find a way to keep the gridiron game real, as close to what we see on TV despite the fact that the stories are set 700 years in the future. What about bionic muscles? What about reinforced skeletons? What about souped-up scifi performance enhancing drugs (PEDs)? What […]
The Galactic Football League series features huge Humans, as well as other species. One of my goals in writing this series was to draw attention to just how big players are today are compared to, say, 50 years ago, then try to realistically project how that steady growth could produce absolute giants in the future.

Kiyaunata Goodwin is a large young man. He’s currently 6-foot-7, 370 pounds (200cm tall, 168 kilos). But wait, here’s the best part … He’s 14 years old. He’s in the eight grade. The eighth grade. That’s him in the picture at right, playing against a typical eight-grader. Pretty impressive, is it not? Here at the Galactic […]
