  1. International 2010

    It was a bit of a comment on the state of both teams that the old names Rice, Elway, Singleterry, et al. were getting more attention than the current players.
  2. International 2010

    You spoke too soon. I'm still recovering, a very enjoyable time but also b****y hard work, not least because the 49's lack sideline discipline.
  3. International 2010

    Assuming you mean as part of the chain crew you join BAFRA [uK referee's organisation], qualify as an official, put your name down when asked by the director of operations [the guy who works out where we all go each week] and wait and hope. I'm pretty sure I got in last year as it was the Patriots playing. A lot of us on the crew were Pats or Buccs fans. This year I'm in as one of the officials who did it last year so we aren't all new to the job. I don't expect to do it again for a while. I understand there are typically 30 applications for the 8 places.

    I shall be repeating my role in yellow stripy vest on the sideline, although hopefully with a more interesting pole to hold this time.
  5. International 2010

    Get your name in for the chain gang, they let me on last year so they can't be that fussy.
  6. International 2010

    Suits me, plenty of ex Pats at Denver and if I can get onto the sideline again the privilege of being anywhere near Mike Singletary. Plus you never know who you might meet in the pub afterwards.
  7. Saturday Night Face Off

    Just to clarify I will not be available to officiate at this event.
  8. Staying In London

    I'm not sure about that. In the Flemish speaking parts of Belgium I found that they would rather you speak English than French.
  9. Even if it is curved Dan you'd be OK if you had public liability insurance as you could claim to be engaged in historic re-enactment, which is specifically exempt from the legislation. As someone who has walked around a lot of places in C17th clothing over the years I think you might be surprised how relaxed the British are about this sort of thing.
  10. Tickets Available

    Due to other commitments I will almost certainly have one and possibly two spare tickets for the game. These are in the £95 block, which is the price I will be asking plus the cost of postage. The availability of the second ticket may not be confirmed until a couple of weeks before the game. Any one who is interested please let me know and I will contact you on a first come first served basis when I am certain the tickets are available.
