AZAFL kicks off

A few words about the inaugural matches held Friday night.

First and foremost, those of us on the AZAFL board would like to thank everyone for just showing up like they said they would. All the organizing in the world would have been pointless had everyone not shown up to play. We also had a large contingent of fan support braving the threatening storms on hand to be a part of this historic occasion. I would have to say that we did not disappoint them either.

Denver Report

On October 14 and 15 in Los Angeles, the Bulldogs won all six of their games and overcame the San Diego Lions in a hard fought Grand Final to come out the Year 2000 Premiers.

Matt Dainauski, the Bulldogs President, said it was a victory that the Doggies knew they were capable of, "going all the way back to last year's National Championships - this time, Denver had their day". Coach 'Rusty' Waugh said: "several clubs showed up with nearly double our personnel - but we always had more out there with our desire and passion".

AFL Player Scholarship

We have arranged for the US's best (must have no Aussie ties) player for 2000 to spend two weeks at Essendon (the 2000 Premiers) in the early part of 2001.

USAFL will fund the entire trip (except for food and spending money) and the player will be billetted out to an Essendon player, train with the club, under the guidance of legendary coach, Kevin Sheedy, and will hopefully participate in an intraclub scrimmage match. The recipient of this scholarship will be announced soon after the National Tournament (the player will not necessarily be the National Tournament MVP).
