I like watching Arean football here and there. Tons of offense and definately exciting. I would hope they would get different announcers though.

I am a big fan of Grand Rapids team in Arena Football. They play at Van Aken Arena.

There is also been talk of an AFL team in Pittsburgh if we get a new stadium but that rumor has been around for a long time so who knows how valid it is. But with 19 teams and the slot liscence being awarded tomorrow I wouldnt be suprised to hear that talk perk back up if the Isle of Capri wins

AFL can fill that void of real football during the off season! At least now I won't have to watch Soccer on Telemundo !! :D

telemundo, ROTFL. You know my grandmother watches that sometimes here at the house and watch soccer. Her team is Real Madrid. I know darn well she doesn't understand the game or what is going on.

That GOL station is the only place I can see German Soccer... but for some reason they announce German Soccer in english on a spanish language station

I don't watch the Arena League but if Pittsburgh did get a team I might start watching and following the Pitt team.

But anyway since we are on the talk of Arena Football. I always though the Colts were a glorified Arena team. All offense, no defense and play in a Dome.

I hope the AFL dies a slow and horrible death.
