|Why do players play arena football instead of the nfl?|
It's easy to say not good enough for the NFL, and for some players that's true. In some cases, however it's because the players talent lends itself to the arena game more... in those cases those players can't make the NFL roster, but flourish in the arena league. A general example of that would be an NFL quarterback generally needs to be above 6'ft and gun the ball downfield... for the arena league the field is only 50 yards, so a big arm isn't as nessicary, and since there's less men on the field (less linemen to see over) a quarterback doesn't need to be as tall. Arena football doesn't lend itself to quick elusive runners... runners that are big bulky men (fullbacks) are the feature of the arena football running game insteand, so for some they can do better as the fullback in arena football rather than to be an underutilized fullback in the NFL. For receivers in arena you don't need to be as fast... the game favors offense enough, just a size advantage or good route running can be enough to flourish in arena football. Hope that helps.
because they are not as good as nfl players yet....
um..cause their not good enough to play in the nfl, and some arena guys can get more seasoning in the arena league
because they are girls
means they didnt make the cut list they either were cut ,free agent,or were never drafted at all. There are alot of players that make it to NFL. Most of arena players have or do walk on to Nfl scout team just dont make roster. Alot of these polayers are un polished they need the final touch before NFL.
same as the other answers...simply not good enough. its the minor league of football
Basically it is one of two reasons...A) They aren't good enough to play in the NFL I.E no one drafted them or they were cut and not signed or B) they like the style of play and are able to show off themselves more...I hope this answered you question!
because they didn't make it in the nfl in the first place. or maybe they made it and sucked and went to afl and did good
They aren't as good as the nfl players
because they're not good enough for the NFL and nobody wants them
Because they like to play with a roof over their heads, so it's not cold and it doesn't rain or snow on them. WTF. THEY WANT TO PLAY IN THE NFL BUT THEY'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What player doesnt want to Throw 8 TDS in one game or Catch 5 TDS and still get payed, but doesnt have to take the punishment of the NFL
Because they're not good enough to play in the NFL.
The Arena game is smaller, so players go both offense and defense. The field is shorter for kickers, too.
