    Hey
    I've had a quick look about and found the following links if they are of any help at all.

    http://www.americansportsuk.co.uk/index.shtml UK site
    http://www.americanfootballuk.com/ UK site

    http://www.afe-shop.de/contact/index-me.html German site

    Obviously others exist but I haven't found them but they might point you in other areas to look.
    Thanks for the links. I've been thinking about joining a team, as well... It's just that it's quite a bus ride away.

    And I doubt that the Dutch members would mind you not including them. Couldn't even fill up half the Amsterdam ArenA when the Admirals still played and there are only 22 teams throughout the country... And half the games still get cancelled due to not enough people showing up.

    All of our players wear them. They are the most comfortable and allow for the greatest protection and flexibility.

    Don't be cheap.
    that's the bottom line, you get what you pay for and if you don't feel that your pads are going to do their job and protect you then that, in turn, will affect the way you play. You need to be concentrating on what you are doing and not wondering if your pads will take the hit and save your body.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Don't let it stop you from doing what you love!

    This is how I travel step by step to every practice:

    1. Running about 2 miles through the forest to the closest buss stop. The other option is to take my bike, but then I have to ride the bicycle around the forest. Both ways takes around 15 minutes.

    2. Riding the buss for 40 minutes.

    3. Taking the ferry across "The Fjord of Oslo". Takes almost half an hour.

    4. Taking the train for about 20 minutes.

    FINISH!
    That's FOUR different methods of transport, and whole trip back and fourth takes four hours. I promise you! it's a pain in the ass after doing it for a while, but the one-and-an-half hour of practice is worth it.

    Lol. I can't say that you're not putting any effort in to it. My, that's quite the trip.

    Fills up your day quite well. Lol.

    I'd have to bike to the busstop, as well, which is about 10 minutes. 50 minutes bus trip. Then a 10 minute wait. Take another bus, which takes a minute or 15.

    Now, as annoying as that is, it's not the biggest problem at all. The biggest problem is the way back. Practice ends at 22:00, the next bus from the practice field leaves at 22:40. After 21:00, however, I could only catch a bus that circles around like crazy and gets me home at 00:30.

    That's somewhat late for a regular wednesday night.

    But thanks for the story. Your trip is pretty much a workout by itsself.
