In 2005 the Amsterdam Admirals had won their first and only World Bowl but in 2006 they lost the final against the Frankfurt Galaxy after a very fine season with many great players on the team, such as Atari Bigby, Skyler Fulton and Gibran Hamden, who all had liked to work with head coach Bart Andrus.
