    Arena Football: How in the world does it continue?

    I mean seriously? Not only is it a BOOOOOORING game but did anyone see the "Arena Bowl" on the NFL Network Friday night? It was on late so I watched a quarter or so before falling asleep. It was at the Superdome and I swear there may have only been about 3-5 thousand in attendance. I don't see how it continues.

    I like watching it. It's a good off-season sport to watch.

    It wasn't in the Superdome. The game is played in basketball arena's. It is like hockey, if you attend a game, you'll be hooked. You are correct that the arena was empty. Here in Phoenix, there is 10-15 thousand at each game. It is definitely a fan friendly sport. The players interact with the fans and put on a good show. The best part is how inexpensive it is to attend and get out of the heat.

    It looked like the Superdome chairs to me. I am aware the game is played in arenas like basketball but every now and then, like for the final 4, they play basketball in domes too. At any rate, it was EMPTY.

    Sorry, just not compelling to me in the slightest.
