The Arizona Rattlers play the San Jose SabreCats on Sunday in the 16th installment.

Does anybody really care or is Arena Football merely something to hold you over until the NFL season starts?

Oh...and how the hell do two teams from the same division play in the championship game?

No, Kurt made his name in the AFL...

Played for an Iowa team I think...

Looked at the AFL web site, but don't see any really big names in the league right now, although Kurt wasn't exactly a big name when he was there either...

Oh, and by the way Grimis, this is the only league that makes sense in it's playoffs. San Jose and Arizona were the two best teams in the season. So they're in the same division, who cares. The NHL and NBA could learn from this. Imagine a Detroit-Colorado Stanley Cup or a Sacramento-LA NBA finals...

Actually, although I no longer follow it, I used to have season tickets to the local games. Of course, the team no longer exists, which may be why I stopped caring (Pittsburgh Gladiators was the team). Its a fun game to watch and frankly, though there are similarities to football, its a completely different game.

Side note: A Detroit-Colorado stanley cup might actually make me projectile vomit onto my TV, as I watch more money being thrown around than at a billionaires batchelor party. Plus, I don't think they were the best teams in the league (and before anyone gets huffy, no I do not say that my team was better than them, we sucked)



It's still the pre-seasons

Steelers 0-0
Penguins 0-0

Its an argument that belongs in the HOCKEY forum I guess, but who in the blue hell was better than Colorado and Detroit? Certainly no one in the East... Perhaps an argument could be made for San Jose! But the Avs beat them.

As for the money, who cares? I just want to see fun hockey being played, and they do it best....

    I think I would go nuts because that would completely destroy the point of the conferences. I would have less of a problem if the conferences were no existant. Can you imagine, for example, a baseball situation where Anaheim would have to play Arizona in the playoffs and have 4 of 7 w/o the DH before the World Series?!?!?

To my knowledge, there are no parades scheduled in San Jose today. (Just as well, it would affect my drive home!)

Interestingly, San Jose has now captured the triple crown of second-tier championships - MLS, WUSA and now AFL.

No that was roller derby. They actually showed the Roller Hockey on ESPN. I remember a couple of teams(Anaheim Bullfrogs, New Jersey Rock n Rollers, Montreal Roadrunners) but I swore there was a team in San Jose.

Due to my closeness to SF, I've seen every game this year. Their problem is that they blitz too often, leaving their corners on an island.
