Question: Why isn't Arena Football more popular in this country? I'm excited for it because Youngstown (a.k.a. where I live) has an af2 team now, the Mahoning Valley Thunder, and Cleveland, which is about an hour from where I live just got Las Vegas' old team. I went to a Thunder game in April and it was great. My question now is, why don't more people watch or get involved in it? Let's list why they should.
1. It's football.
2. I don't know about you, but I like alot of scoring. It seems Patriot fans would like it, because then their team could score 80 a night and no one would blink.
3. Fan-friendly enviornment. The Arizona Rattlers promised their season ticket holders their money back if they don't make the playoffs. I'm sure Cardinals fans would appreciate a similar gesture.
4. You can keep the balls thrown into the stands
5. Mike and Mike call the games
6. People flipping over walls-who doesn't like that?
7. Some of the players make as much as you. This matters to some people I know. They get mad because A-Rod makes $300 mil. Arena player make about 100K a year.
8. Fast paced action
9. QB's throw like 75 td's a year
10. It's football
