Default football player reference

Hi,
I am looking for references of a football player including front and side view. However, the place I usually go to, www.3dkingdom.org, it seems that it is down. When I go to that site, Firefox reports back that it could not find the server. So does anyone have some other places that I could check out, regarding to football character references?

I am sorry that I did not include everything in my post. What I meant to say was besides the problem with 3d kingdom website, I am also having difficulties finding what I am looking for on google as well. I hate to sound like a dummy, but when I type football +player, I get football players without their full suit on or some guy flying in the air catching a ball. These are all good when I need references for animations, but I need 2 major things. One, the character must be standing in a t-pose, and the other, the character needs to be in his full uniform including the paddings. In addition, when you really think about it, why would a real photo of a football player be standing in a t-pose to start with anyway? Yea, I could just use a standard guy standing in a t-pose and model the paddings separately, but the problem with this is that I am designing this as a very low-poly character, possibly no more than 1500 polys. I think the best bet would be to search websites that are designed for people to upload their 3d models, such as turbosquid or highend3d. However, surprisingly, these two sites do not have any football players unless you want to pay $400 for it, and so that people buy them, of course they would not include a front and side view screen shot. Therefore, if anyone has any ideas or know any websites off hand I would much appreciate it.

okay i was looking for the same thing you are looking for a long time ago. i searched everywhere but to no avail, no football player in the t-pose or side view. my last resort was to draw the player myself. i know it sounds harsh but just trace a pic from a model and find references for football player equipments. it is much easier, at least for me it was and i got to practice on my drawing skills a little bit more.
