The Home of Arena Football Fans since 1998

Remembering Tim Marcum

Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com
December 5th is a sad day for me every year, and this morning, Facebook once again reminded me of the passing of the great Tim Marcum. Today marks five years since the demise of the best coach in AFL history, and it only felt appropriate for me to come out of my retirement to heap some praise on what has inevitably become one of the forgotten heroes of the Arena Football League.

Remembering Tim Marcum(12/5) December 5th is a sad day for me every year, and this morning, Facebook once again reminded me of the passing of the great Tim Marcum. Today marks five years since the demise of the best coach in AFL history, and it only felt appropriate for me to come out of my retirement to heap some praise on what has inevitably become one of the forgotten heroes of the Arena Football League.

Washington Valor win ArenaBowl XXXI 69-55(7/28) After a bizarre finish with a roughing the passer penalty resulting in an untimed down after the arena fired off its confetti, the Washington Valor won ArenaBowl XXXI 69-55 over the Baltimore Brigade.

Despite Playoff Fall, Empire Inaugural Season a Success(7/25) Back in April, I wasn’t sure what to expect on opening night of Albany’s comeback into the Arena Football League. With only four teams participating in the league this season and a smattering of players that was only together for four weeks, there was a lot of uncertainty on how the Capital District would respond.

Valor Upset Empire to Punch Ticket to ArenaBowl XXXI(7/22) The Washington Valor were 0-for-5 in their previous matches against the Albany Empire, but their first win against the Empire could not have come at a better time.

Empire is King (of the Regular Season); Defeats Soul, 71-57(7/9) In the first three meetings of the 2018 season between the Albany Empire and the Philadelphia Soul, the road team came out on top. On Saturday night, the Empire used their home field advantage for an historic win.

Empire vs. Soul IV: The Game to End all Games (in the 2018 Regular Season)(7/6) As we celebrate our Independence this week (here in United States, anyway), we are reminded of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us over the last 242 years.
