Fun fact: This blog breaks Power news faster than any other outlet in Pittsburgh.
Just stumbled across a piece from Thursday's Tribune Review reporting on Morris being placed on IR. They also reported that Morelli was "likely" to be signed.
We have it confirmed, from team officials, that the Power were bringing in Morelli and Morris was going on the IR on Wednesday morning.
If the Trib can't even read Twitter, who can you trust?
Criticisms aside, they also reported on the TV ratings from the Iowa game, which was in direct competition with the Pitt - Butler NCAA tournament game. The average rating was 1.4 - approximately 16,500 households. Not too shabby, all things considered. After the Pitt game, it seems everyone migrated back over to check out the remainder of the game, as the end drew a very strong 2.7 rating.
They say Pittsburgh only supports major league teams. The attendance numbers (highest combined in the AFL after two weeks) as well as the TV ratings only go to prove that Arena Football is emerging as a major league sport in this city.
