You betcha, since day one.
My dad is unable to attend games at Sun Devil, it is way to hot for him there and the distance from parking is too far. So when they announced the Rattlers I asked him if he wanted to check it out and we haven't missed a game, including the Arena Bowl we hosted in 1997, nothing like watching your team in a championship game
Both my daughters attend; the youngest is 16 now but was 6 when she got "her own" seat and a complete arena ball freak.
Arena football will be a real success if people realize that it is not the NFL but it isn't trying to be either.
The Cards would be lucky to get a local fan following that the Rattlers do. I for one am happily looking forward to a much calmer August. Between AFL playoffs and NFL training camp/preseason we were running around like chickens trying to get is all in.
