The Scouting Report
In 2012, Gladiators wide receiver Dominick Goodman torched opposing defenses. With 34 touchdowns, a franchise record 170 receptions, and a spot on the league’s list of top 10 players as voted by AFL Field Pass subscribers, Goodman certainly had a lot to show for himself—but it was only just the beginning of something great. So over the off-season, instead of constructing a scarecrow to take his place, the Gladiators re-signed the former Cincinnati Bearcat to a multiyear deal, one that solidifies an already potent Cleveland offense that’s primed to light up the Quicken Loans Arena scoreboard during the first three games of the 2013 season.
From 1992–1994, the Cleveland Thunderbolts gave the city its first taste of Arena Football League action. And while the taste was but a tease at the time—the team disbanded at the end of the 1994 season—AFL fans eventually would see a return to revelry in 2008 with the arrival of the Gladiators, a team that bounced around the country like a rock band on pogo sticks before diggin’ in their cleats at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. In their first official season, the Gladiators introduced themselves in grand fashion by advancing to the franchise's first-ever conference championship game—a tough loss, to the eventual league champion Philadelphia Soul, that’s since stood as the squad’s humbling reminder of the unending effort required to achieve league dominance.
