History

The team is owned in part by Jon Bon Jovi, Craig Spencer and Ron "Jaws" Jaworski (former QB of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles). The Soul began play in February of 2004, and plays its home games at the Wachovia Center, home of the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League and the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association. When there is a scheduling conflict with the NBA or NHL, games are played at the Wachovia Spectrum--the former home of the Flyers and 76ers and the current home of the Philadelphia Phantoms AHL hockey team and the Philadelphia KiXX MISL soccer franchise. The Soul play in the Eastern Division of the National Conference of the AFL. The name "Soul" refers to the the Philadelphia soul music genre, as the team is owned in part by musician Jon Bon Jovi.

Critics say that the Soul erred that off-season when they made Tony Graziani the highest-paid player in Arena League history. The move left them with little money under the salary cap to improve their defense, and as a result, they were not in the drive to the ArenaBowl Playoffs. The elimination came even after NBC scheduled 14 games of the Soul to be shown on national or regional television. NBC, along with the AFL, was clearly hoping for Philadelphia to develop a good team to justify the hype given them before the season.

In the 2006 season, the Soul got off to a 2-0 start. They went 2-0 against division rival Dallas Desperados (who finished a league best 13-3), and finished the season at 9-7 and earned their first playoff berth through the wild card. In their wild card playoff game, the Soul defeated the Austin Wranglers in Austin, 52-35. The score was 21-21 at halftime, but the #5 seed Soul outscored the #4 Wranglers 21-7 in the third quarter and ran away with the game. Their Divisional Round Playoff Game was in Orlando against the #2 seed Predators on Sunday, May 28, at 3:00PM. Unfortunately, the Soul had some scoring opportunities slip by, as they fell 31-27.


The Soul got off to a great start in 2007, starting 4-0, and became a powerhouse in the AFL. However, they were finally knocked out of the unbeatens, losing to the Georgia Force, 57-49. Afterwards, they lost on a Monday night contest to their division rival, the Dallas Desperados, 51-41. In the game, Tony Graziani left the game early with a separated left shoulder from a sack by OL/DL Rickie Simpkins. He would miss the next 4 weeks...all losses, dropping the team to 4-6. Graziani returned in week 12 against the New Orleans VooDoo and led the team to its highest scoring output in its short franchise history, winning 78-34. In a week 16 "win-and-in" matchup with the Columbus Destroyers, Graziani led the Soul down the field and threw a touchdown pass to Charles Pauley with 7 seconds left, giving the Soul a 56-53 win and their second trip to the playoffs in their four-year history.

Soulful highlights

  • On Sunday, February 13, 2005, in a Week 3 home game against the Nashville Kats, QB Tony Graziani would throw for six touchdowns. One of those TD's came on an amazing third quarter play from their own 5-yard line. Graziani got the snap, tripped over his own fullback's foot, and threw an incredible 45-yard TD pass to OS Steve Smith off his own knee. The Soul would go on to win the game 59-48. On the AFL's 20 Greatest Highlights Countdown, this is at #6.[2]

Philadelphia soul - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (230 words)
Philadelphia (or Philly) soul, sometimes called the Philadelphia Sound, is a style of soul music characterized by lush instrumental arrangements often featuring sweeping strings and horns.
Philly soul songwriters and producers, including Thom Bell, Linda Creed, and teams of Gene McFadden and John Whitehead, and Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff (the latter pair of Philadelphia International Records) worked with a stable of studio musicians to develop the unique Philly sound used as backing for many different singing acts.
Philly soul was popular throughout the 1970s and it set the stage for the studio constructions of disco and urban contemporary music that emerged later in the decade.
Soul music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1827 words)
Soul music is a combination of rhythm and blues and gospel which began in the late 1950s in the United States.
Soul music is differentiated by its use of gospel-music devices, its greater emphasis on vocalists, and its merging of religious and secular themes.
With the introduction of influences from electro music and funk, soul music became less raw and more slickly produced, resulting in a genre of music that was once again called RandB (although the term is no longer an acronym), ususally disinguished from the earlier rhythm and blues by identifying it as "contemporary RandB".
