On the surface, the Anaheim Piranhas' first year in the Arena Football League was a smashing success. The Piranhas averaged more than 13,000 fans at the Pond for a sport that was foreign to Southern California until last season. On one occasion, they nearly outdrew the Angels. They won their first seven games, nine including two exhibition games. They made the playoffs--something the Rams haven't done in eight years--and they got fans involved in the games, a feat the Angels rarely accomplish.

The field was 50 yards smaller, the rules were slightly different and the players weren't making millions, but the 15,107 fans who watched the Piranhas defeat the St. Louis Stampede, 51-37, in an Arena Football League exhibition game at the Pond didn't mind. They seemed to be happy that professional football was back in Orange County after a 16-month absence. "I've been in this league eight years and this is the best opening preseason game I've been a part of," Piranhas Coach Babe Parilli said.

It's not Waterfield-Van Brocklin, Gabriel-Munson or even Ferragamo-Haden, but for the Southland's football-starved fans, Molander-Kopp will have to suffice for a quarterback controversy. Anaheim Piranhas Coach Babe Parilli doesn't like the term "quarterback controversy" but until he decides who will lead his Arena Football League team into the playoffs, a controversy is what he's got.

Danny O'Neil, former Mater Dei and Oregon quarterback, has left the Piranhas of the Arena Football League so he can spend more time as a youth pastor at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa. O'Neil, expected to be the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Arena League veterans Scooter Molander and Troy Kopp, started last week's 51-37 exhibition victory over the St. Louis Stampede. He completed six of 11 passes for 83 yards and one touchdown in a little more than a quarter of play and was named the game's MVP.
