Unhappy A very sad day for AFL fans

A Very sad day

Just got my copie of First Down and read that Al Lucas died on Sunday while playing in the Areana League

" Lucas's fatal injury is belivied to have come from a blow to the spinal cord sustained while trying to make for the Los Angeles Avengers".
Al Lucas was 26 years old with a wife and daughter.

My deepest sympathies go out to his family.

Is that the UK edition of First Down you're talking about?. I thought I was the only one who bought it. lol Up until I left the UK I had every edition since week number 8 stuffed in a closet.

Is Keith, the Scottish guy still editor?. I remember buying my first copy back in 1986. It had Trevor Carthy from the Birmingham Bulls on the front and was around the time that Herschal Walker was on his way to Dallas from the defunct USFL. I got my name in it also. A few times for when I played junior football with the Cambridge Coyotes and I also had a couple of letters published.

You didn't use to play junior football with Norwich did you?. I remember some good games we played there at the East of England show ground. Would have been 12 to 14 years ago though. Does Norwich still play the Cambridge Cats?. I have a few friends who played or still do play for them.

We have the Rattlers in town and its suppose to be a good cheap ticket. But I just cannot get into it. Kind of reminds me of a game they tried to start in the UK when the player base started to dwindle, called "Passball". That didn't last long either. I remember the team in Cannock(sp) swatted us in our only experiment.
