The format creates some crazy stuff both ways. When else do you see basically meaningless final play two point conversion to win or lose? Happened this week. One point advantage for either team hea ...

Philly can easily beat Baltimore by 13. Just onside kick every time. We learned Baltimore doesn't know how to recover them.

Barring a 3,6 or 7 point win, DC is going into Albany with a 1-point deficit to make the Arena Bowl. As a last-seeded team in the league, it is hard to ask for more.

Albany 1 point win basically me ...

And the new playoff format creates an AFL first: A basically meaningless final-play-go-for-two-to-determine-winner-and-loser.

If Washington was able to get to that bar ball in OT one foot sooner, before it hit the wall, the Valor would be heading to Albany up 13 points in the aggregate (or more if they had been allowed to ki ...

Wagering at 5Dimes. I have had a good year. 15-6 to date. But no plays on this week for me yet. MAYBE if PHL comes down, but I expect it to go up. May be good opportunities next week if the lines ...

Albany opened at -7.5. Was quickly bet up to -10.

Bus? I think a Volkswagen would have been adequate!

Sorry SS, but I just had to take a jab at ya due to the attendance issues in Baltimore. I really wonder if more people would have co ...

Well at least I know I can be there if it is in Washington. Their arena is available. Certainly hoping for Albany. If it is Philly not sure I could change my flights if the game is on Sunday, since ...

Actually I have a fear of Baltimore and Washington meeting in the AB in Washington. Can you see the field day that the media would have with that? League would be belittled for having a 2 (maybe 3) ...

Then why not just hand the Foster trophy to the team with the best attendance and not even bother playing the games if attendance is so damn important.

I know we talk a lot about the fans, and tha ...

I think what they should do is if the wins and total points are tied after the second game, then the tiebreaker is which team had higher attendance at their home game. Just kidding, attendance would ...

I also read it as ABB. Anywhere But Baltimore. No way is the game in a site where that team is not involved.

What isn't clear is if playoff attendance factors in. If it does, then you want to ho ...

Even if Philly gets the right to host, where will they host it? The press release says the game will be the weekend of July 28. That could only be Sunday for Philly as their arena is booked both Fri ...

Not to mention that no matter how unlikely, it is still possible that a two win Washington team could end up hosting the Arenabowl.

That seems to be the untold reason here.

And do the playoffs figure into the attendance thing?

So if my math is right, Albany needs to announce an attendance of 8265 on Saturday to host the AB should they get there. Note I did not say needs to DRAW 8265, just ANNOUNCE 8265.

If the teams split the two game playoff and have equal number of points then the second game goes into OT like a normal game.
