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.

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 it’s 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.

Not Gladiators Night, Lose ArenaBowl 72-32(8/23) CLEVELAND - Let the disappointment sink in. Cleveland's golden night was anything but. A sellout crowd? Not quite. The free shirts cleverly masked empty seats, but make no mistake about it, the place wasn't full. A no-fly zone? Not even close. No big hits. In its place, plenty of broken coverages. A backup quarterback turned ArenaBowl winner? Shane Austin forced throws he never had.
