About this Theme

The first version of this theme back in January 2008 was inspired by the great magazine style themes of Brian Gardner and Darren Hoyt. I took those elements that I liked the most in every theme and combined them together in one single theme. The different page templates are inspired by Brian Gardners "Revolution" theme, other elements are taken from "Mimbo" by Darren Hoyt. The Tabbed section is created by using jQuery ui.tabs by Klaus Hartl (stilbuero.de). Meanwihle the theme walked through a lot of development and got its own individual face and functions.

The Name of the theme was inspired by the famous American jazz sax-player, Branford Marsalis. Although I´m German, I decided to present this theme in english in order to make it available for a greater audience.

It had been a violent, wild night on the Surrey/Hampshire border and I had sustained minor damage to some fence panels which shouldn’t take too long to fix.

Policing of Football Matches Policing of Football Matches

Recently, the Football Supporters’ Federation have stated that the attitude of some police forces to football fans is stuck twenty five years in the past. It says while many forces have a positive approach, some match commanders still use heavy handed tactics and treat all fans as potential hooligans. It says it wants officers who

I’d like to start with a confession. I’ve never been interested in the Olympic football before and I don’t believe it has a place at the games.
