Soul win first matchup with Portland, advance to 6-0(5/4) PHILADELPHIA - In the first of two matchups versus one of the three expansion franchises the league has added in the past two seasons, the Philadelphia Soul beat the Portland Thunder 52-35. The Soul will take on the Las Vegas Outlaws on May 30th in Atlantic City for the Boardwalk Bowl, and will have to wait until 2016 to play the Los Angeles KISS.

Defense leads the way as Storm cruise past Sharks(5/4) Historically speaking, the Tampa Bay Storm have struggled mightily against the Jacksonville Sharks. Before Saturday night’s 63-28 thrashing of the Sharks, the Storm held an all-time record of just 2-9 against their cross-state rivals. But wouldn’t you know, Tampa Bay has now won the last two matchups and in convincing fashion at that.

Butera needs to make strong statement against Quincy Butler(5/3) There was a major difference between what the artist currently known as Metta World Peace in the did in the "Malice at the Palace" and what Quincy Butler of the Portland Thunder did last night. Artest was provoked, and he went into the stands with his fists. Butler wasn't, and he injured an innocent bystander with his helmet.

Les isn't always more: Moss' time with Sharks could be running short(5/2) TAMPA - Les Moss has one of the greatest minds in the Arena Football League. Between his time as a head coach and his time as an assistant in arena ball, he has helped generate hundreds of victories and multiple championships. However, after a 63-28 beating at the hands of the hated Tampa Bay Storm, tied for the second-worst in team history, his time as the head coach of the Jacksonville Sharks could be short.

Tiger Jones continues to move up all-time receiving charts(5/2) TAMPA -- The Jacksonville Sharks had one of their worst games in franchise history on Saturday night, as they were beaten by the Tampa Bay Storm 63-28. In the lone silver lining of the game though, Tiger Jones continue his ascent up the league record books for wide receivers.

Manny Nunez

When a second chance turns into a blessing(4/29) Success is driven much more than being on the football field. People forget that those that play the game are at one point in their lives hard working students in and out of the classroom. From the Arena League to the NFL, many of those that take to the gridiron still have something else to pursuit before their bodies can’t take any more.
