Ahhhh, the result of rugby, soccer and basketball having a drunken three-way. This looks it'd be about as fun as arena football.

Looks like this sport is still going, they're live-streaming games on YouTube. This is actually pretty interesting to watch, very good production so props to these guys for trying to put out a quality product

The Night Owls (who I guess are the league "mainstays" in terms of performance ) get absolutely CREAMED in this game though.

I went to many Arena Football games when we had a local team. It was very fun in person.

Default Re: Kronum??

I've noticed since I've been watching the games on YouTube that the field is different. Apparently they've changed the rules a little bit, making it a bit simpler and easier to follow.

The biggest thing I see is that on the field, the "flex zone" is gone, which I personally like. So the new scoring arrangement is simpler:

Goal Zone- 1 pt.

Wedge/Cross- 2 pts.

Prime Ring- 4 pts.

And all these are doubled if the ball goes through one of the crown rings instead of into the chamber.

Penalty shots are taken from the Prime Ring and worth 3 pts. in the chamber, 6 in a crown ring.

Also, it used to be something like a 70 yard field. What? Waayy too big in my opinion, the 50 yard field makes a LOT more sense to me. But it ticks me off something terrible when people go "4 goals? That's stupid! I don't get it!"

The gameplay is basically modeled on half-court basketball. Whoever has the ball is on offense, but if the defense gets the ball they have to bring it back to the take-back line. At that point you can go for the basket. In Kronum, however, you can take your pick of which goal to go after. It's actually REALLY simple to follow.

Also, it's interesting to note that the whole "chamber/crown rings" arrangement is similar to Gaelic Football or Hurling. They're two Irish sports that have both a soccer-like goal and a rugby-like field goal, and points vary depending on where you put the ball in. Just something I noticed.

Maybe it's just me but I personally think this thing has enough versatility as a sport to carve out its own niche. People just need to stop being so jaded and allow it to grow.

I'd definitely consider this a pretty "universal" sport; meaning anyone of any athletic background (with good cardio ) can play it pretty effectively. The only thing they might need training on is the "Kronum throw" where the players do that jump/throw thing, that's pretty specialized and unique to this sport.

I guess what I find most intriguing is the fact that it's played on a circular grass field (first thing you notice) and the bigger fact that it has four goals. I love it. It gives the game a sense of constant fluidity and movement.

Idk, for some reason once I actually started watching the full games they livestream on YouTube I couldn't stop. It's utterly mind blowing to see something like this actually work, and work well.

I actually suggested to the guy who created Kronum (who's also the head referee for all the games) that they call the playoffs the "Kronum League Crown Series" and he actually liked the idea.

Oh, and this game from last week was INTENSE playoff implications for the Throwbacks, and it came down to literally the last 20 seconds. Audio gets somewhat messed up at the end unfortunately, but it was a great game nonetheless.

I watch these games and can't help but think of the day they'll be on ESPN. The sport is unique enough to warrant its own niche market, especially for basketball fans after the NBA Finals and those who don't watch baseball, it'd be a great summer sport. That field is just MADE for the camera in my opinion.

Looks like a modern version of the old Aztec/Mayan game.
