I thought about it for about 5 seconds.... NFL's better.


Now don't get me wrong, there's alot of fun in the Arena League, but let's be honest, the NFL is just better peroid. In everything. Tallent, marketing, business practess.... just about the only think the AFL has over the NFL is that at least they don't penalize ya for over celebrating.

To me the best professional gridiron football league in the world is the Canadian Football League. I really could care less if the players are second rate; the game is more wide open, fast paced, explosive, and most importantly they keep the game moving. The NFL is too slow, and arena football is too offense oriented. The CFL is absolutely perfect.

Hmmm, I agree.

The best players are actually good solid Canadian players and underated American players who'd get stuck on the practice roster because of bias coaching in the NFL.

There just as many dropped passes and terrible throws, and missed tackles in the NFL as there are in a CFL game, and the guys make a lot more money. Even the announcers say receivers are picked because of their speed even though they don't have as sure hands as the receivers in the past had.

YOU CALL THAT PROFESSIONAL?

I liked the AFL, used to go to a lot of AF2 games when we had a team in my area....it was nice seeing guys who are playing for the love of the game and not whining that they want to re-structure their multi-million dollar contract.

AF2 players made 200 bucks a game, and a $50 bonus if the team wins.

NFL w/o a doubt. AFL is like street football. Full of guys who figured they'd be in the NFL but then reality stepped in. They still get to feel like they are a big jock and it gets some ladies in small towns. They all think they still have a shot at 'the league'.

The beer was slightly cheaper at the one AFL game I went to, so that was a plus.

Oh they still do..... but it takes ALOT of work. Maybe even more than they did in college or high school.

Considering the TB Storm have 6 championships and the Bucs have 1, I want to say AFL, but I would be lying.
