From the AP:

NEW YORK ? The Arena Football League and OLN reached a television deal Friday, with 11 regular-season games and one playoff game to be shown on the cable network.

OLN's first AFL game will be televised Sunday when the Philadelphia Soul (2-1) host the New York Dragons (2-1). The league also has a TV deal with NBC.

Hmmm, the OUTDOOR Life Network gets Arena Football and the NHL in the same year. Seems to me as if "OLN" is going to have just about as much meaning as "ECHL". But hey, who am I to complain. I'm all for more hockey and arenaball on TV.

This is why they are trying to seriously downplay the words and focus on the initials -- OLN. They want the name OLN to be used the way people use ESPN (since very few people ever refer to that network as the "Entertainment and Sports Programming Network").

true but at least Entertainment and Sports Programming Network is indicative of what they are broadcasting. I think its time for OLN to find a new name. TNN went from a country network to men's programming (Spike TV). Its not like they wouldnt be successful if they changed the name.

Easier said than done.

Just because they want me to call it "KFC" doesn't make their chicken any less fried, or any less unhealthy when eaten too often... :therock:

TNN was "The National Network" in between Nashville and Spike - right around the time TNN had the Arena League.
