NFL EUROPE'S HARDEST FANS
DIE SCOTTISH CHEDDAR HEADS

Shuggie, alias Steve Bedwell, und Preston, alias Ian Carey, bilden diese crazy Party-Duo. "Party on ....." ist ihr Leitspruch. Sie tauchen nicht nur bei allen Spielen der Scottish Claymores auf, auch bei anderen (z.B. Dragons-Galaxy, Admirals-Fire '98) ist man vor ihnen nicht sicher.

Spielt ihr Team mal nicht, schreien sie natürlich für Fire (Fire-Trikots gehören zu ihrem Standard-Reisegepäck !). 

Inzwischen sind sie in der Liga bekannt wie ein bunter Hund. Auf Promotion Video's der Monarchs tauchen sie auf, in Gameday-Mag's und auf den Pre-Game-Party Stages sind sie schon Stammgäste. 

Party on, Guys ....... See you in '99 (oder auch früher, man weiß ja nie !)

The marks from the Cheddarhead judges are as follows, 
· London               Nil points              Poor stadia, poor fans, no-one has heard of NFLE 
· Bristol                  1 point                Better stadia, no beer, but plenty of Fire fans 
· Birmingham         2 points               The worst stadium, shitty town but it has a Hooters! 
· Glasgow               3 points               Will be good when its built, tough beer laws 
· Amsterdam          4 points                Most improved power party plus the Hooters vote 
· Edinburgh            5 points                Backfields good. Cambridge better. 
· Barcelona/Sitges  6 points                The beach! The sports bar! Did I say the beach? 
· Frankfurt              8 points                Best pre-power party and BBQ anywhere! 
· Düsseldorf           10 points               The best power party plus Oldtown afterwards. 
Birmingham: What a shit stadium, but I think Preston just spotted the way to Hooters ! 

4) THE SEMI-MANIGFICANT SIX
Following last years ‘Magnificent Seven’ Claymores fans who attended all 10 games (plus the World Bowl) we can reveal that this year 6 hardcore fans have earned the mantle. 
¨ Mark and Gillian Smalley (2 straight years!) 
¨ Lesley Murray (how does she put us with us?) 
¨ The Scottish Cheddarheads (you may have seen them on STV) 
¨ Ian Dall (#80 or #23 depending on how he’s feeling) 

One name you may be surprised to see that is missing is our cover star, Jochen the Legend. His bizarre absence from Week 1 in Barcelona led to his omission from the list. However he retained his legend title in many 
other ways, including a record 18 games in 11 weeks this season. You’re still the legend Jochen!

7) A BIG CHEDDAR THANKS TO …
 
Thanks to the boys at STV (Graeme and Martin pictured) who put us on our way in week 1. We couldn’t have done it all without you guys! And good luck as well to ‘There’s only one’ Martin Giessler in your new Sky job!
Thanks also to these two boys who you may know. Wil, for helping to continue put out a first class organization despite a shreded budget this year (just how much are ya paying Fester?). Thanks too for paying for that Charing X to Queen St ride. It might have been our shortest trip of the year but they all count! And John, big big thanks for letting us do that to your pub!(+thanks to Iain too). „New York, New York“ must have taken its toll on the furniture by now! Seriously though we would be lost without it, and some of the nights we’ve had in there are our best memories of the season. 
Thanks also to the man they just call ‘Sausage’ now. Thomas and Ralph who form Fire.Pl@net have over extended their kindness to the boyband all year and we couldn’t have got away with most of our antics in Europe without them. See you at the World Bowl baby – this year Fire win! 
And finally a great big thanks to the coach. Its been a tough tough year for sure, but Jim never stopped being a 
class guy, and appeciated fan support all year both at home and on the road. And let us not forget that he did win us the only trophy that you can drink beer from (even it did leak)! In fact its hard to imagine anybody else coaching the Claymores. So we’ll see you back in 99 coach!
