Who WILL DANCE IN ORLANDO IN THE AUGUST HEAT

Posted June 30, 2013

August is about   thirty two days away and with its arrival  comes thoughts of the 2013 Arena BOWL.  Who  will be there?   Who  will become AFL  champion in 2013.  The  way the season has shaped up so far points  a finger at two franchises the Arizona  Rattlers last years champs and the team they dethroned the Jacksonville Sharks.The Rattlers, before last weeks loss to San Jose, have been the leagues hottest team winning eight in a row. Nick Davilla leads a high octane offense that has lit up the scoreboard quite frequently this season. The defense has shined too stopping opponents at critical times preserving important wins for the franchise.

         The  Jacksonville Sharks struggled a little early and have suffered a key quarterback injury to starter Benard Morris but they have turned the corner with key wins like last nights thriller over Orlando 62-55 on CBS. RJ Archer  and AFL veteran Kevin Rowley have picked up the sputtering team and now all things seem in place for a head on collision with Arizona for the title. The Sharks blue collar work effort might help them during the title run since they dont have the leagues best record they might be less of a target for teams thus giving them the darkhorse type team role that has won championchips for many teams in sports.

               Are  the Sharks and Rattlers the leagues best?  This is somewhat hard to defend given the fact that the league has seen great performances from the likes of UTAH, Chicago, Orlando, and San Jose. Could one of these teams knock off Jacksonville or Arizona, this could happen and both of these teams better be ready or they could end up watching the Arena Bowl on television instead of being in the big game.
