Indoor Football Is Alive And Well In Amarillo
Amarillo is an interesting place for sports fans, Yes we have the Sod Poodles, which by the way you can listen to on our sister station News Talk 940. Then there's the return of hockey with the Wranglers coming to town next year but how about football? Yep, Got you covered there and believe it or not the Amarillo Venom are taking it to the next level this season
The Amarillo Venom play at the Civic Center and so far managed to win the last 3 of their 5 games. They do run a short 6 game season with the final coming up against the West Texas Warbirds at the Ector County Coliseum down in Odessa.
What makes Indoor Football so much fun is the game tempo is much faster and unlike the College and NFL Guys stoppage in play is much less frequent. Honestly that's one of my big gripes with the game. For a game with f 15 minute quarters how the heck do we get to three hours? Not the case here, just straight up action
There's a differences, like the field of play, it's only 50 yards. again pace is important here. With more plays, points rack up quick. Some of the snap rules are different as far as who's allowed to move when the ball is being snapped but does it really matter? It's football! and unlike the NFL the prices are reasonable.
Big shoutout to Coach Reese for getting the team to the championship and it's great that they are representing Amarillo. Fangs Up!
