Default Arena Football

I don't watch Arena football to much, but being the field is smaller I think they should they put less guys out on the field. If anyone watches it what do you think?

It's way better than the NFL. It's on at 7PM Eastern Time on ESPN 2. My team is the Gladiators. The tackles on the wall are insane.

It is pretty exciting to watch, it just seems really congested on the field at times.

I love watching arena football, NFL football is great but Arena is just a little more exciting and its a very fast paced game, and I love that.

Arean football does have less players on the field. I think its 8 v 8.

It is. And one guy plays both offense and defense.

Best thing about the Arena League is that ALL players stay after games and sign every kid's autograph, no matter how long it takes. Obviously, they couldn't do this in the NBA with the sheer number of kids in the stands, but it certainly is an interesting contrast with how often NBA players walk directly into the tunnel and locker room when the buzzer sounds, without even shaking hands with the opposing team.

Arena League is definitely a grassroots kind of organization, and there's quite a few Soul fans here in Philadelphia. That league might never go away, cause it seems to have a loyal fan base. My brother-in-law has season tickets to the Soul, and it's supposed to be like hockey - you HAVE to see a game live, and then you'll be a fan for life.

Yeah, there's less people. I would like them to have more space, even though it is 8v8. The tackles are cool, and I like the idea that you can catch the ball off the wall. Go Dallas!

Just another product that oversaturates the sports market, which is growing more crowded by the day. The actual concept isn't terrible, but its completely unnecessary.
