Welcome Arena Football 2 fans to The Steam Page, the first fan page dedicated the coolest team (and game) in town. I'm speaking of course of the Roanoke Steam and Arena Football 2. If your new to arena football, I recommend checking it out. It's a blast. Roanoke fans, lets get out there and support OUR TEAM. And fans of other teams, swing by on a road trip. The worst that can happen is you go home unhappy.

As always,


Steam News:

7/28/02: Playoffs Set to Start This Week
The Steam finished tied for third with Norfolk in the Atlantic division well behind Cape Fear and Richmond. 16 teams will continue their season in the playoffs, not necessarily the best 16, as Roanoke (Bossier City and Pensacola too) is a better team than San Diego, Bakersfield, Wichita, Tallahassee, Florida, and Rochester all of whom are in the playoffs. That's the curse of being in the best division in the league where 4 teams finished .500 or better.

7/20/02: Steam Win Season (Franchise?) Finale
The Roanoke Steam wrapped up an 8-8 season by trouncing the woeful Greensboro Prowlers 46-22 in Roanoke. Greensboro looked awful, and Roanoke had their way throughout. The biggest mystery was not if the Steam would win, but would this be the final win and final game in team history. From what I have heard, the league is pursuing one last local ownership option in an effort to save the franchise. But I've also heard that the team's office lease in Tanglewood Mall expires at the end of this month. So expect to hear something soon.

A special thanks to all the players, coaches, cheerleader, trainers, and front office personnel who perserved through a tough 2002 season. We hope to see you back in 2003.

I'll be working on updating the season stats, roster, and records page soon and putting out the best and worst of the 2002 season.
