ArenaFan Power Ranking: Week 9(5/28) Spokane and New Orleans swap spots in the ArenaFan Week 9 Power Ranking after the Shock beat Las Vegas on the road while the rest of the ranking remains unchanged after last week’s action. Look for movement in the top half of the ranking next week if Cleveland falls to Orlando in their Week 10 matchup.
Keep on Drivin` (Plus "To Joe Goosby!")(5/26) Offense beats defense again – in last week’s lone “one team has the better offense; the other has the better defense” game, the Soul throttled the Storm to make it a 7-4 advantage for offense-favoring teams.
My first AFL Game: An outsider look at Gladiators at SaberCats(5/26) My guest for this week's game is an avid Cornhuskers' fan, a person who fondly remembers the Tommie Frazier/Scott Frost/Eric Crouch halcyon days for Nebraska. Having never been to an arena game before he knew to expect scoring, but 94 points in the first half shocked his Midwestern sensibilities.
SaberCats Bend But Don't Break, Keep Perfect Season Alive(5/24) For the first time throughout the entire 2015 Arena Football League season, the San Jose SaberCats actually appeared vulnerable against the defending American Conference Champion Cleveland Gladiators on Saturday night, trailing 49-35 in the second quarter and 52-42 at halftime.
Goosby's Ironman Performance Leads Soul to 71-27 Win over Tampa Bay(5/23) Following a disappointing loss against the Jacksonville Sharks last weekend, the Philadelphia Soul bounced back against Tampa Bay with a 71-27 win. The Soul’s defense tortured the Storm all night long, with two sacks coming from defensive end Bryan Robinson, and two interceptions from James Romain. The defensive line had constant pressure on Jason Boltus and the defensive backs kept TT Toliver almost silent all night.
AFL Quickplay Week 9—Which Week Is This?(5/23) Apparently my logic doesn’t work too well. Each of the last two weeks I have given what seemed like good suggestions only to have them backfire and put up big fat zeroes. Two weeks ago it was Randy Hippeard/Bernard Morris and last week it was the wrong call on Erik Meyer/Nathan Stanley.
