Ideasbynet Announces Addition of TuggzBy Ideasbynet, PRNE

SHEFFIELD, England, March 9, 2011 - Ideasbynet, the Sheffield based promotional gifts company, has announced
it will soon be stocking this season's safer alternative to the controversial
snood - Tuggz.
Ideasbynet welcomed Sepp Blatter's decision to ban the snood from
professional football pitches. The FIFA president claimed the snood, if
tugged upon by another player, "can be dangerous, even like hanging
The danger Blatter describes is experienced by amateur footballers all
over the country. The son of Peter Howarth, Ideasbynet's Managing Director,
is one such amateur footballer. Miles Howarth, a 16 year-old sixth form
student and aspiring entrepreneur, originally pitched the idea of Tuggz to
his father several months ago. A prototype has been developed, coinciding
with Blatter's ruling and offering a real alternative to the snood - reducing
the danger but not the warmth.
Tuggz has been streamlined so it is more difficult to grip. However, if
another player is successful in taking hold, the garment's multi-stress
'Tugg-points' will cause the Tuggz to detach and come away from the neck,
without the risk of choking.
Tuggz is manufactured from closed-cell foamed neoprene with a
micro-fleece lining, making it comfortable, warm and water-resistant; perfect
for a football season in England. The innovative Tuggz will stay firmly in
place during a high-octane game, only coming loose when tugged.
Byron Metzger-Edwards, member of the Ideasbynet team and keen footballer
said: "I would definitely use Tuggz over a Snood. If someone does grab you it
detaches straightaway, and conclusively shows the referee who's in the
Tuggz will eventually be available in a range of sizes so young fans of
Carlos Tevez or Samir Nasri will be able to emulate their heroes stylishly
