  • #2 Vipers at Kings July 20, 2016 by Terrance BiggsThe 2016 edition of the Battle of Louisiana concludes when the #2 Vipers (7-0) travels to New Orleans, to face the Crescent City Kings (3-3). With each team needing a win for different reasons, the intensity raises to a fever pitch. Add in the shared dislike of one another, and Saturday’s game will rival any regular season performance the GDFL featured this year. Quieting Doubters: The Bayou Vipers are currently undefeated. Yet, some players fe

  • Match-up Storm (7-0) The Nashville Storm has continued a legacy of football dominance by storming (pun intended) through the 2016 regular season. Their 7-0 record has them on the cusp of completing a second consecutive undefeated regular season.  The lone blip on the radar was a 15-6 win over the Huntsville Rockets (remember that name) on the road. Undefeated season aside, the Storm needs one more win for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The defending champions have left no doubt,

  • Blast Defense Subdues Gators July 18, 2016 by Terrance Biggs             Mark Twain once said “Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. “ The same applies to the 2016 Memphis Blast. Not that long ago, those in the know considered the Blast a legitimate threat to win the GDFL championship. Losses to Arkansas and Oklahoma tempered the optimism. Message boards and social media flooded with doubt and season eulogizing of a lost 2016 campaign. Someone forgot to inform the Bla

  • Crush Thump Knights July 18, 2016 by Terrance Biggs             Focus is among buzzwords thrown carelessly thrown around. Usually, it is a euphemism for paying attention, which any adult should do. When applying correctly, the term carries a more serious connotation. The Georgia Crush (5-1) focused their attention on dismantling the Georgia Knights (3-3) on Saturday evening, handling the, 31-6. This victory virtually locks up the Xtreme South Division for the Crush. Outmanned: From t

  • Pitbulls Clinch Impact North July 18, 2016 by Terrance Biggs             When the season began, no one knew what to expect from the Missouri Valley Pitbulls. Rumblings would surface about existing talent, strong coach, and a will to win. Hopes rose for their GDFL campaign. Unfortunately, disaster struck: A Week One 6-2 defeat at the hands of Tri-City forced a re-examination of Missouri Valley.  Saturday’s 20-12 victory of the Midwest Titans quelled any doubt about their legitimacy.
