Arena Football Suspending Operations
Total Pro Sports – With no shock here the Arena Football League or otherwise known to most as the AFL are thinking about suspending operations and close their doors come the 2009 season.
With the struggles that the NBA have shown with their decline in attendance and the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes soon to file for bankruptcy. It’s only fitting that a league like the Arena Football shuts their doors completely.
If a major sport like the NHL, and the NBA can not draw fans to their game to watch some of the top athletes in the world. How can a league like the Arena Football draw fans to watch athletes who were not good enough to make the NFL? That’s the main question here.
I remember the Toronto Phantoms, I think they were called. For the whole 1 year they existed in Toronto, I went to watch them 0 times. I didn’t even care they existed, the only reason I ever considered watching them was to get drunk and go out somewhere Downtown after the game.
“It’s just tough,” Crush player Delvin Hughley said Monday night at the Denver Sports Fans Choice awards dinner. “I talked to some friends around the league. . . . We don’t know. We’re under a lot of pressure right now and just don’t know what to do.
“Hopefully, we can come out of this thing and everything will be OK.”
The Arena Football opened its doors in 1987 and has 15 organizations, by the end of this week we will definitely have seen the last of the AFL. You won’t be missed!!!!1
