Gladiators Snake-Bitten by Rattlers in ArenaBowl XXVII(8/27) It was supposed to be the culmination of one of the greatest seasons ever by an Arena Football team. A win at home in ArenaBowl XXVII would have brought the city of Cleveland its first pro sports championship since the Cleveland Browns won the NFL title in 1964.

This One's Special for Rattlers, Davila(8/23) CLEVELAND - The Arizona Rattlers are once again champions. There was never a doubt that they were the superior team against the Cleveland Gladiators in the biggest romp in ArenaBowl history. However, the 72-32 victory proved that Nick Davila really is as special as it gets in this league. This one though, was perhaps a little more special for him.

ArenaBowl Intensity Unmatched(8/23) Playing for a championship, no matter the sport or the level, seems to bring out the best of those that are participating in it. Whether itís a recreational softball, little league baseball, or professional (insert sport) team, playing for a championship takes things to a level that is hardly matched in regular season games.
