How 'bout dem Wings?

All the world (that cares) is buzzing about the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings' 72-3 drubbing by a medicore Tulsa Talons team on Saturday night. It was the most humiliating loss ever in Battle Wings history.

But it was not the most humiliating game ever in af2. Quad City defeated Greensboro 103-3 in 2000 and the Steamwheelers recorded the only shutout to date in af2 history in 2001 with a 41-0 victory over Peoria.

If you can believe it, the 69-point loss was just the fourth largest ever in the league. It ranks behind the Quad City/Greensboro game, the Quad City/Memphis game in 2001 (90 points) and the Arkansas Charleston game in 2000 (73 points).

Through three games, the Battle Wings are on pace to put up the fewest points in a season by a league team. Greensboro managed just 407 in 2000. At their current rate of 25 ppg, the Wings would finish the season with 384 points.

At least there's no way to go but up for the local af2 franchise.
