The Arizona Rattlers have a unique opportunity this Friday — not only do they have a chance to win an Arena Football League record sixth overall championship, they also can cement their standing as the greatest franchise in AFL history.

Sixth title would cement Rattlers as GOAT(8/23) The Arizona Rattlers have a unique opportunity this Friday — not only do they have a chance to win an Arena Football League record sixth overall championship, they also can cement their standing as the greatest franchise in AFL history.

Physicality To Be Key in ArenaBowl XXIX(8/21) There are a lot of really smart people in the Arena Football League, and I've had the pleasure of interviewing several of them over the course of the last week. Most recognize the fact that the Philadelphia Soul are going to be decided underdogs on the road against the Arizona Rattlers in ArenaBowl XXIX on Friday night, but the common bond, regardless of who you speak to, suggests that physicality is going to end up being the key to the game.

Soul Head to Third ArenaBowl in Five Years(8/15) It wasn't pretty and it wasn't easy. But somehow someway, the Philadelphia Soul found a way to advance to their fourth ArenaBowl in team history defeating the Jacksonville Sharks 55-50.

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly - Wrapping up the 2016 Tampa Bay Storm Season(8/8) It was a fitting end to an absolutely abysmal 2016 season. The worst season in Tampa Bay Storm history, in fact. While Sunday night in Allentown, PA marked the 23rd postseason appearance for the Storm franchise, this one just felt a little different. In a year where all eight teams in the Arena Football League qualified for the playoffs, the Storm limped into their first round matchup against the Philadelphia Soul with a regular season record of 2-14. Let's take a quick look at just how the Storm got there. The diehards should look away here…

The Greatest Game in Arena Football League History(8/6) ORLANDO -- I was there in Arizona when the Sharks won their first championship at the gun when Aaron Garcia won the ArenaBowl. I was there when David Cool kicked the winning field goal in the net right in front of me to give the Predators won their second championships. I've watched the confetti fall from the ceiling at 15 different ArenaBowls in total. I've watched Joe Hills score eight touchdowns and Garcia throw 12. I've watched Cleveland's magical run in 2014. I've seen just about all there is to see in this league.

AFL Power Rankings through Week 18(8/4) As I think back to the 2016 AFL season, I'll remember a number of awesome moments both on and off the field. Joe Hills scoring eight touchdowns in a game. T.T Toliver essentially rewriting the record books. Nick Davila quietly putting up one of the best seasons a quarterback has ever had in this league. The Amway Center standing as one in the #OrlandoUnited campaign.
