    After two dominating playoff victories the Rattlers are hosting the Arenabowl for the first time since 2011 and will be appearing in for the 5th time in the past 6 seasons.

    The game will be at Gila River, so c'mon out and enjoy the show.

    I went last night

    Had a football bounce off the hands and into the next row behind me

    The arena league is down to eight teams only three have any type of talent

    You would think that some medium sized cities that don't have NFL teams would be more supportive. Teams that aren't huge college towns.
    I'd get one into St. Louis, Albuquerque, San Antonio, Little Rock, and anywhere in the east except for Florida. Three of the four eastern teams are in FLA, and all of them are in the NFL towns. Memphis? Louisville? Salt Lake City?

    What's crazy too is the Rattlers are the most winningest franchise in Az and not a lot of people even care. Granted, it is a different type of football, but it is very entertaining. I'll be watching the Arena Bowl in hopes of another championship!

    We were at the last Arena Bowl held here. Heartbreaking loss on the final possession. Lost 73-70. :(

    That's also bizarre to me.


    Here we are in Phx. One of the most championship starved major cities in the country....and the Rattlers are a dynasty in Arena football.

    and no one cares

    Agree! I guess it's because of how different it is to what we are used to with our College FB and NFL. I follow them, but not remotely close as any other Az team. I did watch last weeks game and I will not miss the game in 2 hours!

    I would if it was at Talking Stick Arena. I am going to a local HS football game at 7, so now I get to see both because of the game time start!:clapping:

    I'll be watching. The Rattles are a great team, but they don't get any coverage so I miss their games all the time.

    True. Dbacks always take over the Fox Sports Az during the season

    We'd be going if it wasn't at 4:00 in Glendale. We'd be lucky to get there for the 2nd half.

    Rattles have screwed themselves early... although that fumble return for a TD was extremely questionable.

    Yep! Gamechanger with that call. Should have been a fumble, but placed at the 1 instead of the TD

    even the fumble was questionable... his shin was down before the ball was out & I couldn't see his other knee/leg.

    They're gonna need to play perfect to overcome this & get some turnovers on D
