af2 disses fans
In other af2 news, there will be a new ArenaCup champion this season, since both Memphis (2005 winner) and Louisiville have been ousted from the playoffs. Green Bay will play at Florida, while Arkansas will play at expansion Spokane this weekend for the right to advance to Puerto Rico, site of the 2006 Cup.
Playing the title game out of the country might have sounded like a good idea at the time, and it sure makes for a nice trip for the owners and coaches, but it doesn't do much for the af2 fans and media. If I were a fan of either team making the finals, I'd be ticked off not to get to see my team play, due to the cost of travel. And I can't imagine that there'd be more than a minute number of media attending.
