    Check the local branch of your normal bank. Most banks offer personal checks with NFL team logos.

  23. How can I get a tryout with the Cincinnati Bengals?

    Rosters in the National Football League are filled in a variety of ways. First, each team is a part of the NFL draft in late April. Immediately after the draft, undrafted college players are signed. All teams are involved in recruiting unrestricted and restricted free agents. With the vast number of players this involves, teams do not feel a need to sign players to NFL contracts who did not play in college, or those who did play in college and went undrafted or unsigned after the draft.

    Players coming directly out of high school are not eligible for the draft. Potential players must be in college for three years minimum. Those not going to college must sit out five years and as a result will lack playing background and experience. As a result, workouts are not granted.

  24. Do the Ben-Gals have their own e-mail address?

    No. The Ben-Gals do not currently have e-mail addresses through the Bengals organization.

  25. What is the e-mail address for bengals.com?

    The e-mail address for bengals.com is webmaster@bengals.nfl.net

  26. Where can I get a player poster, team photo, calendar, Ben-Gals poster, 2008 pocket schedule, media guide, some pictures of players and cheerleaders, and a player roster?

    Most, if not all, of those items can be found at the Bengals Pro Shop located at Paul Brown Stadium. The phone number to the Pro Shop is 513-455-8484.

  27. How big are the video scoreboards?

    Each video replay board is 27 feet high by 88 feet long -- which means each board is roughly three times bigger than the board in Cinergy Field. The boards use "LED" or "light emitting diode" technology, as compared with the older "CRT" or "cathode ray tube" technology. LED products are now being used because they are cheaper, burn brighter, last longer, use less energy, and are lighter than prior products. The boards have very tight spacing between the pixels -- each pixel (which is a bundle of diodes) is only 23 milimeters away from the next pixel -- which explains why the picture on the boards is so clear and sharp.

    The boards use a new digital processor as well, which only came onto the market within the last few years. We think the new technology and their size makes them the best video boards in the country.

  28. Can I get a personal message on the video scoreboard?

    Due to the overwhelming number of requests that we receive, it simply is not possible to fulfill requests for personal messages such as marriage proposals, birthday wishes, anniversaries, Welcome Home greetings, etc., on the Paul Brown Stadium video scoreboard.
