I'll be honest, I was underwhelmed. Much preferred last years.
Not going to spoil the result for those who haven't seen it yet but what a game. Loved the start of the 2nd half, explosive stuff.
The real winner was Snoop
I loved it. I loved even more with my eldest son reacting to the music with a 'this isn't real rap music' quote. He thinks all rappers use vocoder thingys. This generation just don't know how great this era was for all kinds of music!
Dan Snyder being forced to sell would be awesome. The guy is the worst sports owner in history.
That brings a close to my first season following the sport - loved it! Although the Cardinal's implosion didn't help matters.
Have to say, it has been a welcome distraction from Watford this season... Now I need something to tie me over until May!
Our unbeaten run culminating in our PL survival should do the trick me thinks
The fact that the most exciting thing about the Super Bowl is the half time entertainment and the adverts, just about sums up American football. Can you imagine anyone going to the FA cup final and admitting to looking forward to seeing Beyonce or whoever at half time?
I don’t know, I enjoyed my half time beer and subsequent piss far more than I enjoyed our last match in an FA Cup final
I’m not sure anyone on here who is a fan of the sport has actually said that?
You don't think I actually read the threads do you?
I've been following the NFL since 1988 and unless my team are in it, largely give the Superbowl a miss, especially recently. Superbowl is too much about the occasion, celebs, razzle dazzle etc, not the sport. NFL season for me finishes after the conference championships.
This is a good watch:
OK so you have to go over to youtube to watch it!
Just finished watching the Dark Side of American Football series. Crikey there are some messed up people in America.
So who are we thinking for the winners this year? I'm sticking a fiver on someone pre season.
Bills are favourites @ 6/1. Buccaneers @ 7/1.
Green Bay look decent @ 12/1.
I guess it's down to which QB I'm backing.
Bit surprised to see Cincinnati at 22/1.
Bills have a tough schedule to start with. Rams, Titans, Dolphins, Ravens, Chiefs and Packers in the first seven games. If they get through that in top spot for the AFC they surely won't be stopped this year.
18/1 on my app. Read a couple of articles suggesting they might struggle to make the playoffs this season.
Yeah could be a decent option. I think I'm torn between them and Green Bay. May stick a fiver on each.
Brady gets another top 10 easy schedule....
Chiefs have the toughest according to this.
Lot of people tipping Broncos as an outsider. Same with the Eagles.
Unsurprisingly no one is tipping my dumpster fire Commanders
The most exciting thing about the Texans is probably the hot dog with nacho cheese they’ve introduced at NRG stadium.
Wouldn't surprise me if the Bills and Rams end up playing each other again in a few months.
This link is really good. Never seen it before.
I think Damien Pierce is going to be a bit special this season
He’s been getting loads of good press the last couple of weeks. We’ll see. All signs point toward the team being crap again.
BOB did a hell of a job plunging an already absolutely mediocre franchise into the doldrums.
Dan Snyder took the Skins past the doldrums and into the depths of hell and he's still going
So far so good!
Green Bay getting smashed! Ha!
As far as first week entertainment goes that was something special.
Gutting for the Lions to nearly get a comeback win.
Texans showed some promise.
Wentz had a total Wentz game. Two interceptions in a row then throws for 80 yards next drive for a 2 play TD.
One of my fantasy leagues has Jackson, Duvernay, Dotson, Hill, McLaurin and Kupp and I still lost coz I drafted rubbish RBs!
Oh and Jerry Jones has combusted....
I think I'll stay in this thread til Superbowl. It's much nicer here!
Same old Jets. Starting Joe Flacco in 2022 is just inexcusable. Even with Wilson injured.
What a cracking game that was!
Bills, Eagles, Chiefs looking good so far
