The game at Rhein Fire will be remembered for the amount of prominent head coaches involved when looking at Galen Halls coaching team from which two have emerged as Champions whho have clinched multiple World Bowl berths.
The Admirals quarterbacks Ron Powlus & Kubiak had finished the season under Al Luginbill with 4 wins and six losses which included a 2831 defeat by a relaxed Rhein Fire team.
Ron Powlus had come from the Eagles and after his Europe stint he couldn't catch a spot in the NFL while Jim Kubiak had landed various jobs at several teams in the NFL and Arena League.
On the other side of the filed had been Danny Wuerffel with 17 attempts for 200 yards and 3 TDs.
Mike Jones got really worked up about the dubious performance in the second half after a 31:0 lead at half-time.
Dallas Cowboy Jeff Ogden must have felt much better off the field at this particular moment.Amsterdam Admirals Team 2000
Bart Andrus had gathered his first NFL Europe experience as Offense Coordinator for Galen Hall at World Bowl winning Rhein Fire 2000 where also former Vikings Mike Jones had helped some great receivers.
One season later Al Luginbill, Galen Hall and Jim Criner had vanished into the XFL as well as Mike Jones, who had been the only one, who had found his way back into the NFL Europe.
First under Pete Kuharchek at Rhein Fire before he became a Champion head coach at Frankfurt Galaxy.
