    I know this is crazy, but I heard somewhere that AFL2 players make like $200 a week.

    Yeah, I searched around and found this:

    Yahoo! Answers - What is the pay for the Average arena football player in the AFL2.?

    AFL players make decent money, but AFL2 don't make much at all.

    af1 = gone IMO. AF2 ONLY works because they pay players $200/game with a $50 bonus if they win...

    Re: Barnstormer players salary

    The $200 a game is the minimum a player can get in AFL2 and the UIF. Salaries are higher for players who were in the NFL, CFL, or AFL. So it’s basically a level system, if you’re a good player, you’ll make X amount + bonus’s, if you’re on the team/play a little you make $200+ bonus’s

    They pay players $200/game, and their bringing in 11,000 to games in Des Moines. Someone's getting rich, and it ain't the players...

    Tickets for the Barnstormers are very reasonable - I work with someone with season tickets and paid around $70 per ticket - I think it worked out to $10 per ticket per game. So 11,000 in attendance at $10 per is $110,000 in ticket revenue. Plus consessions and parking. Cost is $200 per player, coaches salaries and the biggest cost would be renting "The Well" and I have no idea how much that cost.

    The people who own the Barnstormers are already rich. Not saying they aren't getting richer, but the money from attendance goes to more than just lining the owner's pockets.

    I saw online where Quincy Carter received $250 for a game he won.

    THey don't just rent the Well for games, they also have to rent for practice 3 days a week. PRactices are from 7-9 in the morning so most guys have other jobs and this is a glorified hobby.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Then is sounds as if the owners are certainly making out on this deal!
