As far as will Amsterdam repeat, the makeup of the league is such that one year's team doesn't resemble the next year's team. So I can't say for sure that their the powerhouse club this season.
Personally, I hope Frankfurt wins, I've been a Frankfurt fan since the days of the WLAF when there were actually North American teams in the league.
In a slightly off-topic question, where does NFL Europe stand as far as the other non-NFL leagues are concerned? From what I've seen I would say that it ranks this way:
2. NFL Europe
5. The other arena leagues
However, the gap between the AFL and NFL Europe is not big enough that in all certainty these rankings stand for good.
CFL/NFLE/AFL/AF2/NIFL vs UIFA/GLIFL/AIFL
I say start making the NFLE EUROPEAN! Stop sending all the NFL cast offs over there and let Europeans play. That was the plan when it all started. Then the NFL smelled a dollar and are trying to milk it dry.
I say bring back my favorites, Barcelona. Expand to Italy and Poland like they had planned before it became NFLG. Hmmmm. American bases all over Germany and so are the teams. Must not be anything to that though since the NFL is all about promoting the sport, not just the dollar.

Unfortunately, the Claymores are no more. The Hamburg Sea Devils was added to NFL Europe, along with the Cologne Centurions.
FAN OF TAMPA BAY STORM SINCE 1991
