ArenaFan Power Ranking: Week 14(7/2) Jacksonville and Tamps Bay trade spots in this week’s ArenaFan Power Ranking after the Sharks beat Cleveland by 33-points to move to No. 5 and the Storm lose to Philadelphia by 22 to fall to No. 6. San Jose, Philadelphia, Arizona and Orlando continue to hold the Top Four spots after picking up wins in Week 14 action.
Another LA vs. Arizona Sports Rivalry(6/28) Arizona and Los Angeles, no matter what league or sport, have always had bitter rivalries. The Los Angeles KISS and Arizona Rattlers didn’t really have much up until today. Each game the Rattlers would completely take control of the game before the seats would get warm. This game, just like all others, began just like no other.
Emery Sammons return home to face the Philadelphia Soul(6/27) It seems like each week, the Soul face a former player the team decided to let go of this offseason. Last week it was Rayshaun Kizer, the week prior it was Calvin Fance while Donovan Morgan and Larry Brackins weren’t with the team for all of last season but still played with the team. The Soul have also faced, Derrick Ross, Tiger Jones, Wayne Tribue, Jason Holman with Jacksonville, V’Keon Lacey with Portland, and Ray Little with Las Vegas. Like week nine, the Soul will take on Philadelphia native and former Soul receiver Emery Sammons and the Tampa Bay Storm.
Love won, and so did the Soul, down the Storm 64-42(6/27) On a monumental day in United States history, in which gay marriage became legal in every state, the twitter universe blew up with the hashtag “Love Won.” Well so did the Soul. In a much different version of the Soul versus Tampa matchup than week nine, the Soul snuck out a sloppy win over the Storm.
AFL Quickplay Week 14-It All Looks the Same(6/26) Last week in the AFL we only had five games as Jacksonville and New Orleans were on the bye. After taking a look back through the box scores, a thought hit me. I wanted to compare the stat lines of every person who caught a pass last week. Having the data from ten teams would certainly be enough to work with and it validated what I was thinking. More on that in a minute.
Success Rate: High Enough(6/24) Let’s be frank. I’m 1-5 on picking games where one team is better at defense and the other is better at offense. And you probably don’t care much about the charts. So let’s do something a little different this week. Pep it up a little, y’know?
