    Blythe to Barnstormers...according to a text I just got

    No clue if this has been discussed or not, but a buddy of mine that knows Todd sent me a text saying that Todd was signing with the Barnstormers. Glad to see him back playing football after his bout with injuries.

    (Note: If this turns out to be wrong, I'll never try and be an attention whore again and will let far more important people break news from now on)

    Good for him. I like to see the former Clones playing and will maybe go check out our former players next season.

    Re: Blythe to Barnstormers...according to a text I just got

    I go to about half the games and love when former Clones (DJack, Curvey) rip it up out there. I'd have to think Blythe will be nearly unstoppable in Arena ball. Just throw him jump balls all day.

    I know this is true as well. Had a meeting with the Stormers, they are pumped up!
    The talent level since the fold of the greed in AF1 it is going to be fun to watch.

    What they make with the Barnstormers is usually supplemented with another job though. I'm not sure if they still do it, but they used to practice from 6-9am every morning and then the players could work other jobs the rest of the day. I assume that's still the case.

    I'm pretty sure it less than that. I honestly have no clue though. Now that they've been bumped up, I assume the salaries have improved.

    Re: Blythe to Barnstormers...according to a text I just got

    I think players in Arena 1 last year were making near 200k, maybe more and thats probably why they went under. The players in Arena II were getting a couple hundred a game... No clue what the new and improved league will pay.

    Re: Blythe to Barnstormers...according to a text I just got

    Part of why AF2 has done so well is that they don't pay players that much. When you have a franchise like the Stormers that draws well, it makes for a pretty profitable model.

    AFL - What is the average AFL salary?

    That obviously isn't a great source but $60,000 looks average...throw in inflation...hell I don't know
