    I play for the Gladiators and it's very offensive to me that you say we don't play real football... We're a bunch of guys who love the game of football, played throughout pop warner, middle, high school and college. Maybe the fact that you got smacked so bad when you played has made you 'salty' towards the fact that we're playing in the championship game. We play competitive teams, don't speak upon things you have not witnessed yourself and that you're bringing on by assumption... Why don't you try and come out to tryouts this December and get smacked around... Watch your tongue

    Actually, the Gadiators did not create this league so before you get upset and start posting outrageous statement about a team that has made themselves something to talk about over the last three years then do your research. You can sound as tough and be as tough as you want onine posting comments but who are you? Do you strap up your cleats 4 times a week trying to make yourself better and follow your dreams and inspire the youth of this community to do the same? Aside of that... What is "real semi pro" anyways genious? The gladiators have been top contendors every season they have been established. 7-2 in 2010 and 7-3 in 2011 now 6-1 in a league that is a level above what the Gladiators were out that have RMAC officials and live video stream of everygame available worldwide. Now, im going to give you a homework assignment since you have proved you need to be treated like a kid. Go online and do some research on the APFL2 and all the teams that exist in it. Matter of fact, just go to the website itself and contact the league owners and ask how the APFL2 was established. Provide atleast two resources and come back here to post a more honest, reliable message for the community.

    Why hasnt it been reported that the Gladiators created their OWN league as to which there may be up to 6 total teams. All 6 of these teams play in the "b league" of semi pro football. They no longer play in the "real" semi pro league they used to belong to. They had to create there own league because they were getting killed by the normal denver semi pro league teams. They could not be competetive in that league so they created there own. Grand Junction highschool's 2010 team would literally smoke these guys. What a joke-- and get real. This is NOT REAL football! Championship of what?? the league they created? Do some real reporting!!

      Here is your homework. How many total teams are in the league you are contending for the championship? Why are you not in the league from Denver where the "real" teams exist? I played about 10 years ago when the team was in that league. We got killed regularly to the point it wasnt worth going to Denver and getting embarassed. Im sure we also would be awesome in this league as well. Can you argue that point? I do give you guys credit for helping todays youth and for being active in the community. My hats off to you for that. Just be honest about the lacking of "real" competition. I'm no tough guy.
