You know a league is in trouble when not even the combined efforts of team owners John Elway and Jon Bon Jovi are enough to save it.

It was just confirmed that the Arena Football League is canceling the 2009 season, but plans on resuming all its half-field fun in 2010.

That really is the pitts. It was such an incredibly entertaining (affordable) way to watch football for the whole family. All the players are very personable and fan friendly. My 6 year old son will be totally disappointed. The NFL should be helping out the AFL since some of the players feed into that league. Maybe they should look at reducing some of the high $$$ salaries. It's truly a sad day. My prayers go out to the players and families that are now out of jobs.
