Arena/Indoor Football Changes

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately yes. They played with only four teams last year (Albany, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington). Cleveland is still listed as a club but sat out 2018 and will sit out 2019 as well due to Quicken Loans Arena renovations. The league said they plan on announcing expansion clubs next month (Yet the season begins around April, so not much time to get a team together and promote the team). From what im hearing Atlantic City NJ and Columbus OH are the cities. This league should have died years ago.

Supposedly they'll have 6 teams this year.

Bolded for emphasis

 

There's been no announcement for teams five and six, nor a timetable of one.

Today, the Arena Football League introduced brand new logos for the league replacing the tarnished shield that lasted 15 years.  Below is the link to the article at the league's website regarding today's announcement and it features a link to the new logo designs.  I am unable to post them here, so be sure and click the links to see and place comment.

Baltimore and  Washington are both owned by Ted Leonsis and Washington won the Arena Bowl having only won 2 regular season games.

Atlantic City? I know that this is a complete bush league but surely they could have found a better city.

The Philadelphia Soul played a game in Atlantic City in 2015 infront of 6,514 fans.

 

Also Cleveland is scheduled to return in 2020 and rumors of Grand Rapids for 2020 have also been mentioned.

"While the font is reminiscent of what was previously used, brighter colors were selected to be youth-oriented and to convey a higher level of energy."

 

 

from the article ^

 

whats with the obsession these days with "youth-oriented" marketing/branding? yes, you want to reach a young audience, but to build your entire business on it seems misguided. don't they know Millennials don't have any money!?

Yeah...wishing for a league to go away is kinda counter productive...plus, where else are the players, coaches, etc going to work?

 

Anyways, nothing beats the original...

Auto body repair shops. Liquor stores. Supermarkets. The local department of public works. Who said they were guaranteed a job in pseudo-professional sports?

Their day jobs. Most  arena/indoor football players/coaches have day jobs outside of playing mostly because the arena/indoor leagues dont pay a liveable wage compared to the NFL/CFL

Tarnished? At least that was part of the original league that died, this new logo is what should considered tarnished for how much of a joke this league is!
