Amidst league takeover, Portland coaching staff dismissed, James named new HC(1/30) The Portland Thunder were always going to have a tough 2016 season under league ownership. Now, they're going to head into the campaign with a brand new coaching staff according to sources close to the situation.

Gladiators’ Schedule is Front-End Heavy at Home(1/25) The 2016 Arena Football League schedule was released in December and there are a few things about it that fans will find to be quite different from years past. The AFL will field just eight teams this year, down from 12 teams in 2015, after losing the Las Vegas Outlaws, New Orleans VooDoo, San Jose SaberCats and Spokane Shock during this off-season.

In darkest hours, Gruden can give AFL jolt of notoriety on biggest stage(1/8) A guy comes out of the little ol Arena Football League, gets his big chance and leads his team to a Super Bowl en route to what will likely become a Hall of Fame career. It's a script we've heard before.

Adam Markowitz

All-in playoff fiscally responsible, competitively irresponsible(12/10) So you're saying there's a chance… Let's remember that the dearly departed San Jose SaberCats were beaten one time and one time only in the 2015 regular season. That loss came to the then 1-9 LA KISS at home at the SAP Center. That LA team finished out the regular season at 4-14.

Quirky 2016 schedule sets Rattlers up for ArenaBowl run(12/10) Trust me. I've already done plenty of bellyaching about the 2016 playoff format the AFL put in place on Thursday. Theoretically, the AFL should be a more competitively balanced league this year. We've removed teams from both the top (San Jose) and the bottom of the league (Las Vegas, New Orleans and Spokane), and what should be left is a bunch of teams who should all finish between 4-12 and 12-4.

Adam Markowitz

AFL schedule to be released soon, SaberCats likely out(12/3) And then there were eight. The San Jose SaberCats floated around without an owner for a month or so, but they likely won't be continuing in the Arena Football League or playing in a lower level of indoor football next season.
