The only German Rhein Fire player who had made it into the vicinity of an NFL team had been Patrick Venzke, when he had worked himself under the radar of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
For all other German Fire nationals their big dream of catching a spot in the NFL had remained unfulfilled.
Check out over 200 Rhein Fire player photos with also some basic information.
Unfortunately not all of the old photos are matching the quality standards of today as they were produced for 56k modem connections and they were mainly taken from VHS video tapes. Have a look
Anthony Doghmi is about to enter the German Hall of Fame since he had been one of the constant factors for the team.
Anthony Doghmi has played for five seasons in Duesseldorf while winning 2 World Bowl titles.
Each year he had been an important contributor to the team spirit thanks to his superb language abilities.
9 solo and 3 combined tackles made him the most successful German national during the World Bowl winning season 2000. Sad, that he got injured in W1 during season 2003 which had been the end of his career.
