Toonami Aftermath is still all right for some good old-fashioned TOM 2 nostalgia.
Plus they have Reboot.

Neither has any reason to exist now.
1. We can use a toonami that broadcasts erryday, rather than once a week.
2. These toonami's pay some homage to former toonami shows.
3. The ability to unify the toonami faithful such as these toonami's do... They allow us all to get behind the computer screen and communicate to each other via efficient instant messaging rooms and relive our former days of toonami.
4. Especially neotoonami... They pumped in an assload of money for us ;-;
Honestly, what I wish could happen is if neotoonami some how became affiliated with adult swim. I don't know anything about marketing, but the people at neotoonami truly do know how to showcase a good toonami. If they were to somehow gain the priviledge to acquire more shows and better animation, they truly would have a stunning toonami. I wish [as] could somehow advertise neotoonami.

I'm not going to answer because I'm waiting for neotoonami to take a run.
But from what I've seen, I'm leaning towards neotoonami because they're offering new things rather than regurgiating mostly old shows like toonami aftermath does.

The thing is, if you want to watch old Toonami shows, they're pretty much all on DVD (except MEGAS, sadly). Many of them are legally streaming. There's no reason to support illegal streams of readily available shows, and the excuse of the "Toonami atmosphere" means nothing now that Toonami actually is back with its awesome atmosphere.

Pardon me, but doesn't NeoToonami not exist yet? Correct me if I'm wrong here.
Kind of a pointless question.

True, all of them are on DVD or streaming.
But both neotoonami and toonami aftermath, again, provide a similar representation and environment to such content just as toonami did. If toonami, at any given point, was an issue of availability to the shows that it provided, no one would've even of pushed for toonami to air on tv again because as you said, we can get anime to our convience in a very easy way.
It's an issue of representation and environment. That is why such things like toonami aftermath and neotoonami are things to appreciate.

as for illegal... are you sure about that? ;-;
I support primarily neotoonami because they rose from the bottom and have worked extremely hard on such a project. They have utilized a crapload of money when they were just ordinary people. They, at least according to what I've seen of them, know how to run a decent toonami.
And both of the toonami's (though neotoonami hasn't been started) have been there for us when the toonami faithful were in complete darkness and the possibility of such a cutting edge anime block returning was so weak. I support their continuation for as long as possible.
Besides... what people aren't considering is the possibilty of this toonami failing...

Nothing against them both and I personaly like aftermath, but since Toonami is back I wouldnt be surprised if one if not both of them got a "cease and desist" order for using toonami name, image, footage. ect.ect. because airing certain anime, cartoon, and movies could get the attention of the studios and productions of that content and if [AS] doesnt do it (which we know they wont) the owners for that content will.
Even if its DVD stream, by buying the DVD you unknowingly sign a agreement to only play that DVD at your home and household and that any manipulation or distrubution of the item or content within it would be a breach that agreement and end up with heafty fine.

Pfft, we all know one day the two will become NeoToonami Aftermath *gets slapped with a huge trout*
On a realistic note, TA because NT hasn't even launched yet. Plus it's 24/7. Honestly both need a (free) iPod Touch/iPhone app so I can watch it whenever the hell I want...(once I get an iPod touch)
