NBC signed a multiyear deal to air Arena Football League games starting in 2003. Does anyone here watch Arena football? I enjoy it, but I love football and I liked the XFL.

I very much enjoy arena football and have for many many years. Unfortunately I didn't espn2 and didn't get to watch much for quite a few years. Over the last few, I've seen games on the deuce, as well as TNN and am looking forward to NBC's coverage.

I was also a season ticket holder for Louisville's arena2 (minor league arena leage) team last year. We were unhappy with our seats and will go on a game-by-game basis this year, but I'm looking forward to it.

I also liked the XFL. Anything that gave me something to watch at the bar while my wife's friends were gabbing about whatever was definitely a good thing.

My Dad and I went to a Cincinnati Rockers game years ago when they had a team. I didn't know Louisville had a ArenaLeague2 team. If the WWF rolls around a big show at Freedom Hall while they are playing I will have to check them out. Do they play in Freedom Hall?

Arena football is pretty cool. I watched a couple of games when they used to have a team in Memphis. It reminds me a lot of sandlot football.

The AFL has been very successful (they turn a profit every year now), and should have been the model that Vince followed with the XFL. Mainly, they haven't tried to become bigger than they are. They have no interest in replacing the NFL (in fact, I'm pretty sure the NFL owns part of the league). And they haven't tried to bully their way to a national network contract (especially before they were ready, like the XFL did).

The XFL's biggest mistake was putting on pre-season caliber games in a network primetime timeslot. It simply was not ready for primetime yet. The AFL, on the other hand, has been around for a long time, and have worked out all the kinks. They are ready for NBC (and I'm sure they won't try to force them onto primetime either).

I'm insane but I truly enjoyed the XFL. I like the win and get payed theme, and some of the stuff was actually cool.

I really think in a couple of years we will all look back on this and the real story is how hypocritical the media was. From ESPN dissing WWF using sex to sell it's sport, while the same time carries "really soft core porn" on day time, including Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders calender shoot.

The cheerleader thing was really a bogus criticism. They were no different than the NFL cheerleaders. The only difference was the XFL actually allowed the cheerleaders some name recognition and promotion, while the NFL keeps them down as nameless eye-candy. Very hypocritical on the media's part.
