|3) NFL EUROVISION OF LEAGUE CITIES
The marks from the Cheddarhead judges are as follows,
Poor stadia, poor fans, no-one has heard of NFLE
Better stadia, no beer, but plenty of Fire fans
· Birmingham 2
The worst stadium, shitty town but it has a Hooters!
Will be good when its built, tough beer laws
· Amsterdam 4
Most improved power party plus the Hooters vote
· Edinburgh 5
Backfields good. Cambridge better.
· Barcelona/Sitges 6
The beach! The sports bar! Did I say the beach?
Best pre-power party and BBQ anywhere!
· Düsseldorf 10
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 hes 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. Youre still the

|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 couldnt have done it all without you guys! And good luck as well
to Theres 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 weve had in there are our best memories of
|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 couldnt 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 well see
you back in 99 coach!
