-The attendance was abysmal for a playoff game. Probably half of what Omaha had been averaging from the regular season, and that wasn't a particularly impressive number to begin with.
-Salomon is just a stud, plain and simple; he made two absolutely ridiculous catches. He can't be long for this league.
-What a difference a QB makes. Wooten makes sound decisions, avoids the big mistakes, and gets the ball into the hands of his playmakers (CS and DF).
-Special Teams killed Omaha, as it has for a lot of the season. Wichita had a few really short fields, and the majority of the fieldgoals on the evening wern't even remotely close.
-The playoffs is so much about who is playing the best football right now, as opposed to who is the better team. Not to say Wichita isn't a really good team, and on par with Omaha (1-1 in the regular season), but they are playing as well as they have all year, and it really showed tonight. They controlled the tempo from the first snap, and the better team won.
Congrats to Omaha on a great season, and to Wichita for winning back to back tough road games. It will be an interesting offseason for the Omaha frontoffice and ownership. They have a lot of wounds to heal with the fanbase and personnel. The players and coaching staff fought their asses off considering some of the things they had to deal with over the course of the year.
Solomon isn't long for this league - he only came to play with his brother. He was AFL and will return to a different and "higher" league if there is one.
Don't think the wild have much priority at the arena - they alrady had to move the dates of one game this season. Think the lack of events schedules may also be indicitave of other things -- both of the two people brought in to run the arena were let go in the last two weeks. Either way - Kratos is right - Earth Wind and Fire concert isn't until the 21st. They've been all over saying they will host a home game - not sure where the possibility of a conflict came in?
Congratulations Wichita. Wichita played better and with more energy and won the game.
"Minor league pro football is a weird universe filled with bounced checks, unpaid bills, empty promises, out-right lies, empty arenas, endless women, endless booze, occasionally drugs, endless trips on rented buses to towns on the outskirts of the Big Time and, for one night a week, a football game." -- Bill Shea

Banana Cat: Everyone's on the facebook group now too, which makes it even more quiet. This shoutbox was quiet when it was at the top this past year, so maybe I should just shut it down.
