    Re: Barnstormers to be promoted to AF1

    i'm not completely sure, but i thought that the af1 and af2 were going to combine into one league. they were going to get rid of the unprofitable teams in both leagues and combine the ones that made some money. i just hope they learned from the defunct league and not pay players more money then the team can make, and all the other stupid financial ideas that ruined the af1 league. arena football in des moines is an awesome thing and needs to be supported.

    This will set us up to be "demoted" after a couple years for not having a big enough market...LOL

    Great news! Central Iowa goes ape-spit when a top league event comes to town. This will be a success imo.

    Which means you can probably kiss the Quad City Steamwheelers goodbye. Quite possibly the most dominant team ever to play in any two year stretch - lost only one game over the first two years of the league and defeated one team 103-3 and another team 87-7...

    And it will still be hard to care about the Barnstormers.

    Except for when that ******* of a coach at Green Bay comes back!! Then I'll care! He's a bag.

    Barnstormers' management sure doesnt hope they are gone. That Green Bay team may be the reason the game is a sellout next year....

    Yes, and the team was placed on probation there after for violating league rules during those two years.

    Not quite top league but comparable, but howd that work out for the "Chops"?


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.
