    Barnstormers owners claim what the AFL does will have no effect on their operations in AF2.

    Re: AFL to Suspend Play for 2009

    From what I have heard it may actualy benefit AFL2 because they have a better business model and may now get better talent.

    That's the AFC.

    Looks like all systems go... I'll probably wait before buying season tickets. Actually I probably won't buy season tickets but I'll definitely hit a few games.

    Re: AFL to Suspend Play for 2009

    Sports such as AFL will take a big hit in the dropping economy. Suspect AFL could find no bank to loan them the bucks.

    This scenario could play out for farming next spring if the banks are not recapitalized in time. The MSNBC gurus are saying a trillion dollars from the govt only pays back 20% of banking losses from real estate. They also say credit card credit may be pulled back to the tune of $2 trillion in 2009.

    Learn your football history.

    Before Super Bowl 4, there was an AFL that at the minimum consisted of:

    East-
    Boston Patriots
    Buffalo Bills
    Houston Oilers
    Miami Dolphins
    New York Titans/Jets

    West-
    Cincinnati Bengals
    Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs
    Denver Broncos
    LA/San Diego Chargers
    Oakland Raiders

    And before they all played a single down in the NFL they all played in the AFL. In fact, the original purpose of the Super Bowl was a showcase between the two leagues.

    Learn your tenses. I'm aware of what the AFL was. It's where the Raiders, Jets, and Broncos played. Also, learn your sarcasm-themed characters.

    Golf will also be hurting.
    This economy may almost kill NASCAR. With the automakers in trouble and it taking $25 mil a year to run a team, funds will be hard to come by for these boys.
