Footbawwwww. in June.

It's the Spokane Shock at the Portland Thunder.

Terrance Taylor (2005-2008) has been starting for the Shock for quite awhile now. He even scored a TD on a fumble return awhile back.

Still going strong all these years later.

so I'm glad you made this. I had to record a hand about a month ago because it was so white trash hilarious. Arizona v San Jose (or some San Jose like city lol). Anyway, some fans had entire sofas & giant KFC buckets! One woman on air was disgusting, had 3 ratty kids who were clearly picking a fight and she just sat there with get bucket watching. Then she has her mouth full of food and yells at them and the food congress flying out. She was Momma Grape sized and all greasy. I felt so bad. The arena clearly blacked out the upper bowls to keep it from looking like there were only a few thousand people there but those there were hardcore. Even the game is just sad as the players know they're at the bottom of the pro food chain. Same game had teammates clearly mouthing off to each other with zero respect between them and their coaches. So trashy I had to hit "record" lol.

Not true. It's not the bottom of the pro football chain.

It's the 3rd best league behind the NFL and CFL.

You have the NFL, CFL and then the AFL. 

Then after that, you basically have the minor leagues that feed the Arena League. 

  • Indoor Football League
  • Fall Experimental Football League
  • American Professional Football League
  • American Indoor League
  • Champions Indoor Football
  • Lone Star Football League
  • Professional Indoor Football League

Boubacar Cissoko recently played for the Trenton Freedom of the PIFL. He was called up by the New Orleans VooDoo recently.

Elliott Mealer, Craig Roh and Jeremy Gallon all played in the FXFL last year with Gallon winning the first FXFL Championship with the Brooklyn Bolts. 

Roy Roundtree plays for the Colorado Ice of the IFL:

Terrance Taylor was from Muskegon.  I was watching the Michigan @ Northwestern game in 2008 in a bar in Muskegon.  At some point in the game he got a sack and started doing a little dance and the place went nuts!

I've never understood why an indoor football league can't catch on. With the popularity of college and nfl you would think someone could create an exciting family friendly game that also interests the true football fans. The biggest issue is the size constraints of the field in small arenas obviously.

It's hard when teams pop up and fold so often. It's hard to build a fanbase...Plus it's hard to know the players. The indoor team in Wichita has had four different QBs this season, The best one played at some NAIA school I've never heard of. I enjoy their games, but a lot of people can't relate to the players.

Jared Lorenzen. The Hefty Lefty. The Pillbury Throwboy. J Load. Whatever you want to call him might give Terrance Taylor a run for his money in the size department. Guy won a Super Bowl Ring as Eli's backup and then went to indoor football.
