This is cool, we need to get more international players/fans involved in American Football.


I see in NFL Europe they have a few Japanese Linebackers but none of them been good enough to make the NFL. That would be cool if they did.

Imagine having sumo wrestlers as offensive and defensive linemen on a team.

It's funny you say that because alot of the techniques are similar.

What the Broncos really want is kicking and punting god Jonny Wilkinson! But he would never quit rugby, not when he's the best in the world.

Heh...Fumiko's a legend.

Johnny would never come over, but Ben Cohen looked into it as a receiver. Miami made an offer to Ronan O'Gara! Don't make me laugh...

When you guys came over for the american bowl in 99 you guys were looking at some league players, Wendell Sailor (who went to rugby ill never forgive him :fight: ) and adam macdougall.

HAHAH yeah that's why he was always a winger in league and not a centre or forward.

He'd make a good tight end though. I would hate to see Benny C go over to american football, even if it were to the Broncos! And who was it again, I think Chambers was looking at being a WR, you know after he got the 2 year ban for using THG.

Yeah, I think he's going to go to training camp somewhere but I'm not sure. I think the Broncos should try to get Nick Beal for a punter. He's just retired from Northampton (cheers for the memories Nick, great service you did us!) and he's got a howitzer leg.

Yeah, he's good, but c'mon NORTHAMPTON?!?! You know Quinnies is where it's at! with Willie G and Tony D, you have to love that team.

1st Quins
2nd Northampton
3rd Newcastle (if they sign caucau then 2nd)
