With the NFL pointing to fan discontent regarding a four-game preseason as the reason for cutting the preseason to two games — and also expanding the regular season to 18 — the folks at the Arena Football League have come up with an alternative response to the desire by fans to not pay full price for games that don’t count.
At least one AFL team will stage a preseason game featuring free admission.
The Tampa Bay Storm will host the Orlando Predators on March 3, and fans will be able to attend at no cost.
Of course, the NFL need not make such a dramatic cut in the prices for preseason tickets. But no one want to pay NFL regular-season freight for the NFL preseason games, whether it’s one game, two games, four games, or six games.
