    In my like-football-ranking, it's

    1. College
    2. Arena
    3. NFL

    The arena league is just cool, and so fan friendly. I went to my first game last May, and afterward those in attendance were allowed to go down on the floor to meet and greet players and cheerleaders. That was so neato that I wrote into SI last year and told how very personable an arena game is, and they printed it! So yeah, 'fire made SI last year. :wow:

    The season begins Feb 29th.

    Unfortunately, The Desperados are stuck in the Dallas sports rut as the rest of our teams are in. They have amazing regular seasons, but fail in the playoffs.
    I love to go to AFL games. I went to one and we were on the wall right next to the Voodoo's bench. We were all yelling at the kicker while he was prepareing to kick a field goal. We were dogging him all night. After the game he came by and shook our hands and one of their recievers came by and signed some autographs. Lot of fun.

    2 seasons after their Arena Bowl appearance, and missing it last season due to the Cinderella story Columbus Destroyers, the Force look to be a very competitive team once again. Another note is they have moved out of Philips Arena, back to the Gwinnett Center in suburban Atlanta.
    Good for me, now it won't be as far to drive. lol

    March 29 - @ Utah
    April 4 - Kansas City

    Arena League Football is incredibly awesome to watch.

    Now that I am in Orlando - I may try to watch the Georgia-Orlando game.

    Let's go Desperados! 2-0. Sorry Fire, but the Force wasn't strong enough in your team in week one. :)

    Just started getting into the Arena League a couple of years ago and I really enjoy it. Starting to really follow the Rush and how popular they are becoming in the Chicagoland area.

    ESPN loves the Philadelphia Soul, that's why.

    Bon Jovi and Ron Jaworski own the soul, so naturally they are the "star power team". I dont watch arena but i know the soul have committed to win a championship by spending money on Tony Graziani and Chris Jackson giving them a high powered offense and QB-WR combo.

    I dont know though, i just cant get into it.
