Reports from Conor Orr indicate that the league’s quarterback draft was crashed by Lynch at a Las Vegas casino last November and that saw his cousin Josh Johnson chosen as the No. 1 selection by the San Diego Fleet. Because of his presence, the AAF looked to attach itself to the high-profile athlete known for making a lasting impact on the rare occasions he does talk to the media. The AAF decided to interview Lynch at the event, and he agreed to sit down with the AAF for two minutes for a price of $5,000.
However, the reports point out that when the AAF presented Lynch with a check, he balked asking that the payment be made entirely in quarters. AAF co-founder Charlie Ebersol supposedly obliged and had 20,000 quarters delivered to Lynch’s hotel room.
The interview was never aired, and perhaps the AAF had big plans for it before its sudden demise.
