Sorry I have not posted since week 1. I’m finding it difficult to find when the Soul are on TV. Take tonight, for instance, I had no idea they were on until I as flipping through channels. I caught them starting the second half.

Ok, my thoughts… (don’t worry, I only have two)

1) does anyone find it disturbing that Vena, the starting QB, is fatter then I am?

2) this defense is awful. We score the second most points in franchise history and only win by 14. How is this possible? This also tells me that the offense needs to be flawless to cover the defense.

3) (I lied sorry) where did they find Lou Tilly?

I just finished watching the Soul game from last night. I’m glad they are back. I had forgotten how easy it is to root for these guys. Their enthusiasm for the game is infectious and you can tell it starts with the owners.

Anyway, I have some criticisms (shocking…I know)

1) they said on the broadcast that the Power was the first team the Soul played against, meaning no scrimmages. It showed. It looked like they were meeting each other for the first time. Coach Ho, let’s not have a repeat of this, K?

2) play calling, specifically in the 4th with 30 seconds to play. Same play every time. Coach, who do you think you’re fooling every time you put Vena in? It would have been better had you held up a sign that said RUN THE BALL.

3) Mike Brown man did he look slow returning kickoffs and he got beat a couple times deep. I have a feeling he doesn’t make it the whole season.

4) Brackins when did he start dropping the ball?

5) Did anyone else notice that there were ALOT of empty seats? I don’t see a long tenure in Pittsburgh again.

Those are my criticisms. Looking forward to Chicago. GO SOUL!!!!

Yeah, cause the league doesn’t start until Friday.

Anywho, I did notice that Michael Lombardi and Brian Baldinger are part of the crews. At least they are using some talented people.

I never heard of any of these guys so a write up from me is pointless.

The Vigilantes announced their dance team.

I just got around to looking at the schedule. I know it’s been out for a while. I have to say, I’m glad I don’t have season tickets this year. This schedule is CRAZY. First, all the games are at night. There are no Sunday afternoon 1:00 games. And secondly, the last game is July 22nd. So if they go deep into the playoffs, they’ll be playing in August. What the hell?!?!?!?!!? Oh, and they do not have any home games until week 5.

AFL, either go back to 16 games or start sooner, preferably, both.

Last we saw of this coaching staff, they were all playing (more like choking) for the Dallas Desperadoes. At any rate, the band is back together. Clint Dolezel is the Head Coach and joining him are Well Pettis, Johnnie Harris and Jeremy Calahan. Calahan is the assistant head coach and line coach. Pettis is the receivers coach and Harris is the defensive backs coach. I’m guessing that Dolezel is the offensive coordinator as he was with the Desperadoes. Adriel Fenton is the special teams coach and Aric Anderson is the team’s fullbacks and linebackers coach.

At the end of the day, they will still suck.
