That is the way to do it. You said you were going, bought your own ticket and made up the teams' mind for them--many lower leagues would at least take a look at you then. That is what I was trying to say--you didn't just post your stats, or e-mail your resume to teams and agents--you told them you are coming anyways, so why not give you a shot. That is what I did as well. I never intended to tell anybody not to try and have this experience. Better yet, if you know someone already playing there, ask if you can stay with them for a few weeks, wait for someone to get injured or fired and you will have great chance to step in (why fly another player over when this guy is already here!?!?)
I think this answers Dutchfan's question on what they should if they are not sending e-mails or posting stats.
Don't wait for alot of other people to do it for you-just do it yourselves.
