The Home of Arena Football Fans since 1998


Amazing, Alluring - And With An Asterisk

What would an ArenaBowl mean to Cleveland? "I keep saying LeBron James is the second biggest story in town after us," coach Steve Thonn joked. Remember when Barry Bonds passed Hank Aaron? When a once sleek-suddenly brawny San Francisco Giant stole baseball’s home-run mark? He had that mark, still has that mark, but always with an asterisk.

Amazing, Alluring - And With An Asterisk(8/20) What would an ArenaBowl mean to Cleveland? "I keep saying LeBron James is the second biggest story in town after us," coach Steve Thonn joked. Remember when Barry Bonds passed Hank Aaron? When a once sleek-suddenly brawny San Francisco Giant stole baseball’s home-run mark? He had that mark, still has that mark, but always with an asterisk.

Metrics Prove Offensive Line for Gladiators Creating Wins(8/19) By now, we all know that the mantra of the Cleveland Gladiators is the concept of going 1-0. It isn't just winning every individual game. It's about winning every individual play. It's about doing your job. It's about keeping your assignment. It's about making sure that you're not the guy who lets your brothers and teammates down on a play. Perhaps the least talked about members of the Gladiators are Kitt O'Brien, Shannon Breen, and CJ Cobb, the three big guys protecting QB Shane Austin.

Lineman Huey is Arizona's Mr. Versatility(8/19) In just three years in the Arena Football League, Arizona Rattlers offensive lineman Michael Huey has been named to the All-Arena offensive team every season and has claimed two championships with a chance for a third on August 23. All while scoring touchdowns along the way. Quite simply, Huey is living an offensive lineman's dream.

Latin Laser Could Stand Alone After ArenaBowl XXVII(8/17) It's amazing to think that in five short years, Nick Davila has managed to do more with his Arizona Rattlers than most men did in their entire careers. However, for all of his statistical accomplishments, it would be a third straight championship in as many years that would really be the icing on an already decadent cake.

They Started From the Bottom Now They're Here(8/16) It's not that often that you'll see me referencing Drake in any of my articles, but in the case of the Cleveland Gladiators, I feel as though I can safely say that they started from the bottom, now they're here in ArenaBowl XXVII.

China Announcement Start of Something Big(8/15) Almost a year ago, I had the best seat in the house for the first ever American professional football game played on Chinese soil. No, I wasn't playing in the game, and no, I certainly wasn't the most important person there by any stretch of the imagination, but I will never forget Marty Judge coming up to me maybe a half hour before that game in Beijing kicked off and saying, "This is going to be big."
