QB Gabi Duvinage: "Next goal - World Cup 2013"


Autor: Jörg Schlüter / Huddle | Kategorie: Blog, Inside the Team

The first days after returning home, the first German female quarterback of a national football team still had a little surreal memory: "I felt that way, as if I had come back from a trip from the moon and now I was wondering, what could follow now. The experiences of the World Cup in Sweden and the 10 Days of a very regulated daily routine have left their mark “, explains Gabi Duvinage. “It was a great experience personally and I'm also very proud, that I was allowed to represent Germany in Stockholm and that my hometown Dietzenbach also supported me. The phone stopped on Monday evening and many friends wanted to know, what we had all experienced. ”Such a trip aroused Gabi's hunger for more and she now wants, even if the trained gardener is a little bit in her prime, also at the second World Cup, which will probably be held in North America in three years, be there again. "If I pass the try-outs, the coaches want me and if my feet keep carrying me, then I definitely want to be there again. ”Gabi doesn’t worry about her shape: “I am always in the fresh air at work and also work physically. Our football training is at least twice a week and we handle the Greater Frankfurt-Nuremberg area several times in a carpool. We love football and we like to sacrifice our free time for it. ”

In any case, Gabi Duvinage found the World Cup a sporty challenge. In Sweden, the participating nations played a higher level than in the DBL. The Americans were more athletic and lightning fast: “We could have beaten Canada in the first half, but we failed to score. I found Finland even more difficult to play. They were built smaller and more agile than we were, and much more agile on their feet. From this point of view, these two defeats were justified. "

What happens now? Thoughts of resignation were quickly pushed aside. The first round and probably also the playoffs in the DBL are waiting for Gabi and the Nürnberg Hurricanes and to be able to pass the Berlin Kobra Ladies would be nice in their opinion, but of course not that easy either.

How I Lost My Heart to the federal eagle….


Autor: Bettina Janssen | Kategorie: General, Bettina Janssen, Blog, Inside the Team

For a week I'm back in the land. For a week I think about, how to summarize the experience of American Football World Cup in Sweden in words. How can I tell outsiders, how to feel part of a team, The playing against other nations in a fringe sport for women, never much attention has been and is now the very first time competes in an international tournament?

How can one describe the pride, to be able to make history? to participate as part of the first German national team at the first World Cup, on the lawn with 44 to be like-minded and belt out the national anthem?

How then describes the disappointment, accompanied, if ultimately only 4. Place pops, 'cause you have found a leg and too late for the two decisive games that showed, what you can actually?

And how to bring other people closer, what you feel, when Ten days of football, theory, Training sessions in the blazing sun, Sweat and tears, video analysis, human feelings with the other team members spend, is run by an incredibly dedicated team and you then suddenly back into the "reality" of everyday life must incorporate?

No one writes to me more, what to wear to what occasions, my laundry I have to do it again themselves and, worst, I miss the girls, a team from the opposing team here in the Bundesliga in a foreign land, my team has become.

I am never a friend of Dauerbespaßung and crowds have been, to be allowed to be but this experience World Cup in Sweden makes me so proud and happy part of the story have been, I just hope, that the squad 1. Women's national team in American football a few more games will contest this year.

While it is a well-worn phrase, but:

It was to be playing my honor with these girls and women for Germany.

And who ever such a thing could experience, White, that without the many helping hands and organizing all this would never have been possible.

Dancing Queens…

At the end of the World Cup there was a BBQ at the hotel. All teams except the United States also participated. In German, Sweden came out with in our hotel.

The Swedes were then the team, which provided for most mood. After dinner they joined their boom box and played music. The Swedes organized a camp since January each month. That you saw while dancing now. They had even rehearsed choreography. One was it dance from Euro Vision Song Contest, the whole of Europe should join and so did now.

When freestyling, the German girls were not long in asking. All forward Ariane Parusel and with it Michelle Schaffer and Manuela Scott. Not surprising, The two players with Cheerleading Background. The Swedes were thrilled.

The mood for cooking then brought Defense Coordinator Daniel Koch, when he suddenly rushed into the middle and the audience dancing by storm. Now the dam was called gebrochen.Abwechselnd Sweden and Germany their coaches and staff on, to rock the dance floor. even Dr. Marco Ezechieli, the sake of simplicity, only Renegade or Dr. called Enchilada, had with ran, as well as physio Steffen. Germany and Sweden meant prima located, was perhaps also to the blue and yellow T Shirts Deutsche.

Even Team Canada took active with a. The Finns, however, came some very rausgeputzt and talking posh back.

After the proclamation of the all-star team (Moreover, we were able to contribute a few players) drove the Swedes back into town. With a little quieter music we celebrated until it again began to get brighter (this starts at just after one of, it was never really dark)

Swedish waterways


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Blog

The view from our hotel on the waters off Stockholm was fantastic. Behind a small, romantic island with two cottages attracted the large ferries and cruise ships its course on the way to Stockholm. Quiet and majestic they passed.

But then came the little noisy vehicles. Boats with 1OM length made more noise than the ferry on the image.

Really loud it was at night on weekends. The positive noise came opposite the Hafenkneipe. The one really good live band had, We also came to their enjoyment. But later in the evening I was then aware, why you do not live on a main road. The noise neagtive. The waterways around Stockholm are on weekends namely a main road: yachts, Motor boats and jet skis from all drove back and forth. All with Full Speed ​​and Full Noise. At about two o'clock in the morning it was then but annoyed me and I shut the window.

The archipelago extends the way good 20-30 km vor Stockholm. Coach Conny could not believe it and ran in a break off, to see the sea. But as far as she ran on our island, more than the next islands were out of sight…

Women as referee


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General

In the WWC 2010 only women were employed as referee.

In Germany, women are as referee to high for GFL a familiar sight. A completely female crew members, there were sometimes even in one or the other Ladies Bowl. Still, this is even an unusual sight for German.

Peter Springwald chose the German women hand. All from the GFL pool and football and Officiating expect from high level. Except for the small Patzer: “Personal Foul by Number Elf, AHH, Number Elf” only we could interpret German, the performance of our women was also good.

Before the World Cup, the referees had to first agree on uniform Mechanics. Unlike the rules NCAA cooperation of the referee is not regulated the same everywhere.

During the World Cup the referees two of the best EFAF referees were placed on their side. This constantly checked the performance of referees. In addition to the feedback at half time the errors were analyzed and corrected The next day using the special referee game videos.

Whether the performance of the referees to meet the international requirements, the two men EFAF will surely decide.

I would like some feedback on a different question:

Must be women at a women's World Cup all referees?

  • PRO
    Within the framework of equality and women should have the opportunity, to whistle world championships. In football this is handled the same way. Referees cope better on the field with the women.
    The players deserve the best referees, regardless of gender. A good referee will never have a whistle Men World Championships, but always needs to Women World Cup

It's not about the performance of the referees at the World Cup, but basically the facts.
Your opinion you can about the comments are leave.

that Sweetheart…


Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General

Our Defense Line player Birgit swing was indeed one of the “big attractions” the World Cup. With 196 cm, it was not to be overlooked.

Even her imposing figure one way or another antagonist already brought up a sweat. You can not let it, still playing with the enemy psychological games. Against Sweden she came onto the field, planted himself in front of the center, looked into her eyes and said,: “that Sweetheart?”. Until her counterpart eyes could no longer stand up and looked at the floor.

From the perspective of a fan

It is early morning of 28.06.2010 when 5 make drowsy Hurricanes on their way to Sweden. The luggage we already checked on the eve. The boarding starts on time and so the plane starts to to short 08:30 AM Frankfurt.

The landing in sunny Stockholm against 10:00 Pm and the mood is good. The anticipation will come to what is huge. With the rainbow bus takes us then to central Stockholm. The hotel is a mix of grandma's living room and IKEA.

the rooms are quickly confiscated, only thrown in summer clothes and off you go to the team hotel. after about. 45 Minutes with the public we arrive at Nirvana Sweden. From the bus station to the hotel it aloud sign 50 Meter. It has to be another measure of length, because the hotel we reach only after 10 minutes. There we meet like the team from Finland. it tingles, soon the first World Cup starts. As we meet the German national team, We are warmly welcomed. But much time has not, the schedule of the players and coaches is tight. In the evening is still a training session in the stadium at Zinkensdamm.

29.06.2010 - "Good morning. Stockholm" The sun is shining since 03:00 Uhr. But thanks sleeping mask is the GAR NO PROBLEM! Noch 5 Hours to get us the first game (Austria vs. Finland) look at. In the evening, the first time is then sounded the German national anthem. To play our neighbors are already ca. 20 Germany fans in the stadium and cheer.

Together, we are preparing for the arrival of our national team. When the bus against 16:00 PM pulls up to sound the vuvuzelas and the team will be made loudly in reception. Visibly moved, the coaches and players walk a while and feel Laola. It also run one or the other tears of joy, without naming names.

It is 17:50 enter clock as the teams into the stadium. The mood among the fans is good, the pulse is greatly increased and it tingles all over my body. When the national anthem is heard singing about 50 Germany fans loudly with. Delighted with the performance of the girls on the field the fans with all his force cheer. The vuvuzelas horns and roar of the stadium, so that one does not understand his own words. After the actual announcer speaks only Swedish is found quickly a German stadium spokeswoman with megaphone among fans. Beautiful scenes with comments like "VERY, VERY NICE "underlined and not caught balls is calmed with the words" GAR NO PROBLEM!“. Thank you Kathi. In the end Germany wins 14:00 against Sweden. This makes joy more.

The next day, the players 2 Hours of free time and you meet in Stockholm City for fun and sightseeing. Once the team is gone we make a harbor cruise. It goes past the castle, Old Town, Södermalm und Stockholm City. after nearly 2 we put hours back in the game- and destination port on. Understanding: In the summer months, a vacation home would be great, in winter it is particularly the north of Sweden shun, otherwise you run the risk of no daylight to see. This also explains the high suicide rate in the Nordic countries, but only at the margins.

Am 01.07.2010 is the second group match of the Germans and this time, some fans paint the letter "SCHLAAAAAAAND" on the belly and present the work during the national anthem.

First, Germany does not take into the game and quickly gets into arrears. However, after the 1. Quarter woke up the girls and are linked to the performance of the first game. After the halftime shows of the German Defense no getting past, but unfortunately it is impossible for the team to win the game even more. Knapp, Germany Canada has to admit defeat. It is thus clear, Germany plays on Saturday against the loser of the following match between Finland and USA.

The grandstand fills gradually. Shortly before entering the teams from Finland and the US sit next to the fans all participating teams in the stands. At the end USA won clearly with 72:00. But the Finns offer more resistance than the result, it can be guessed. Both teams shine through strong pass- and running game and tackle scenes.

Now it was clear, it would be a tough game against Finland to court 3 be on Saturday. But on Friday were again 2 Hours off the national team. This time we spend time at the sea, right next to the team hotel. During the lunch, and the next theory lesson of the team we enjoy the great weather and cool us in the water (stark) from. At the end of the day some of us have a healthy lobster pink, but that's GAR NO PROBLEM.

Saturday, 03.07.2010, only a few hours to the match for third place 3. Before Austria takes on Sweden for third place 5 und 6. Scene of the day / the World Cup, an Austrian interception should be, up in the end zone carries the the ball. Unfortunately it was the wrong end zone and thus the Swedes over more pleased 2 Points on the scoreboard. (Note the Redation: The two points were missing the Oester Eicher inside at the end. It ended 18:20)

14:50 Uhr: Inlet Team. 14:55 Uhr: The national anthem is heard. 15:00 Uhr: kickoff Germany. As in the game against Canada, the Germans found not initially into play. Finland achieved quickly the first points and a victory of the Germans seems hopeless. To the 2. Quarter but it looks even better. The first touchdown for Germany and shortly after the break succeed the next touchdown. The team is now completely changed and marched as a bulwark by the Finnish Line. In an exciting final sprint Germany still comes once in possession. It stands 18:26 Finland and it is still 1 to play minutes. The offense tried on passing towards the end zone, but at the 20-yard line is closing and possession changes at 4 Seconds on the game clock.

In a few months, to 2 Tryouts and only one collective training before the World Cup there have 45 Spielerinnen, managed behind the scenes to stomp the coaches and the hard-working helpers the first women's team from the ground.

Despite all doubts and despite many negative votes in advance they all pulled together and have grown into a team. It is a big step for women's football and I am glad to have been a fan a part of this World Cup.
