I've since had a new helmet, just plain white again but with a senior cat-eye cage.

And here's a picture of me as a linesman in the British 2nd tier (semi-pro) league, restraining a rather mean looking man

Who is it you are separating? The Bracknell player is Spearing I believe, I don't recognise the other though!

I take it you are a Bison fan? (seeing as you play for the Buffalo)

I play for the Buffalo but I'm from Swindon, I can't really support anyone since I'm a linesman. But before I was doing EPL I never really cared for Swindon anyway, I went to games because I got in for free while I was a junior there but never really got emotionally attached to the team. I certainly wouldn't pay to watch them now, even at student price. I'm more a fan of the sport as a whole in this country, as a I get to see a lot of players while travelling the country as an official.

Samurai jersey made by RNS - they made other odd jerseys: Tuxedo, Sumo Wrestler, etc.

Don't have it anymore - sold it locally

Ha, as much as fans like to think that, it isn't true, honest

Now may not be the best time to enter, as we have a distraught Bracknell fan in there right now who is upset about missing the playoffs

Nobody ever seems to take pictures of me, so here's the most recent one I could find. I have no idea what I'm going in this photo. Skating backwards and lunging forwards? Every picture of me always looks like I'm standing still.



Here's my gear:

Like I said, no clue what I'm doing in that photo. Nobody seems to take pictures of me actually skating forwards or backwards, just when I'm either transitioning or standing still.

Here's the other three pics people took of me in the last five years, all standing still:







From six years ago, when I first started up again:

Hey Jarick, any way we can make this it's own new thread starting with the posts from this year, as opposed to a bumped thread from like 5 years ago? That way people wont need to go to the last page to see the current stuff. No big if not just wondering.
