The ONLY reason ESPN did this is because they fear the NFL NETWORK may take Monday Night Football when the contract is up. Put it on NFL NETWORK forcing pretty much EVERY cable company to carry it then.

So, if ESPN is left without NFL football, they can try and hype up and build up the AFL. It's ESPN's saftey net. Just watch and see

Good, hopefully they'll get better broadcasters than NBC had.

Y'all are losers.

Arena Football is:

1. Very entertaining, especially when you're waiting through the long, arduous offseason without football.

2. Inexpensive and a fun night out with friends

3. Full of hard working athletes hoping that someone in the NFL mght notice them (and occasionally it happens)

AFL is awesome. A lot better than the horrendous joke the XFL was.

I love the AFL, at least its a sport with athletes instead of Poker which they seen to be playing more and more of.

POKER IS NOT A SPORT.

Poker is fun to play, but it is definately not a sport.

I agree, the AFL is entertaining ESPECIALLY in person. Buffalo lost the Destroyers, but I dont live ther anymore so meh.

exactly. the AFL is a viable, fan friendly alternative to the NFL that doesn't interfere with the NFL...not an atrocity like the awful XFL was....plus it's been around for 20+ years now.
