  1. AFC Chiefs Browns - Chiefs by 8 Bills Ravens - Ravens by 4 Chiefs Ravens - Chiefs by 5 NFC Saints Buccs - Saints by 12 Packers Rams - Packers by 16 Packers Saints - Packers by 4 SB Chiefs Packers - Chiefs by 12
  2. Thanks guys. Think I understand it now Good year to start following the browns. Picked them as I like an underdog. That start from the Steelers was woeful.
  3. So at what point do you become a free agent? Or do you have to go through at least one draft, or is that for college players only?
  4. I understand how the draft works, at least in its most basic form. I've not yet mastered trading picks etc. I get that the team with the worst record picks first, and the SB winner picks last. However I'm asking why Trevor Lawrence can't simply refuse to sign for the Jags if he doesn't want to, as you surely can't be forced into employment. Surely that goes against an individual to be employed by who they like? Or does the club that picks him own his registration?
  5. Question 1: So being my first year of following (or even understanding) american football, I've never experienced 'the draft'. The big hype this year is obviously Trevor Lawrence who will seemingly join the Jags. However, as a 'once in a generation talent', why would he want to join a poor side like the Jags? My question is what rights does a player have in terms of rejecting the team that picks them in the draft, and joining a better side where success may follow?
  6. This is a laughable thread. Human beings deserve food, water, shelter, reasonable health care, a chance at an education and safety. Billions don't have these things. Yet you want to throw your self entitled toys out of your self entitled pram because 'my football team is not in the Premier League'. Waaah Waaah Waaah. Grow up! Newsflash. Most football fans who attend matches regularly are not watching their side in the Premier League and many of those never will. Why do you deserve better than someone who regularly watches Mangotsfield and has done for 50 odd years? You don't!
  7. Crazy. 48 hours ago Browns were in with a title shot, and now playoffs are in doubt. Fairplay to the Jets though. Also how good is the Steelers defence? Dragged them back from a 4th straight defeat
  8. Game of the year? Predicted wrong again. Jackson's ability to run is sensational and deserved the win for his performance alone. Baker looked good again, but defensively both sides looked too wobbly to pose a threat if they make it to the play offs
  9. Close Browns win or the Ravens demolish them. Cant see it any other way
  10. I guess the difference is subtle but significant. Of course you can describe someone by their ethnicity. The above comment regarding a police description is a fine example. I have been mugged in the past, and it was by two black men. As part of the description as part of my police statement, I stated that they were black. However if they were white, I'd have said they were white. Anyone who says something stupid like "I don't see race" is an embarrassment as our skin colour is the most visually obvious part of our family heritage, and many people are proud of this. The difference here is
  11. I fear today is the beginning of the end for the Browns. Easyish run in so far, and with the Titans Steelers and Ravens to come, I cant see us beating them. Mayfield has to find his A game tonight
  12. Cue the 'Washington Monuments Football Team' playing all in grey
  13. AFC North shaping up nicely after the Titans get one over on the Ravens. I still fancy the Ravens to finish 11-5 and the Browns only on 10-6, however....if (and it's a big if) the Browns can beat them in December then they'll hopefully pip them.
  14. Some big surprises there! Steelers and Chiefs made hard work of it. Bucks were smashed. Got an inkling for a Jets win against new England
  15. Liverpool won the fairplay table last year and won the league. In fact last years top 8 in the Premier League came 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th. As you can see from that spread, the best teams in the country had the best, the worst, and the most average fairplay records. In summary. It literally doesn't matter.
  16. Still learning to be fair. They seemed utterly devoid of ideas in offence. Brilliantly shut down by Pittsburgh though who, despite my limited knowledge, seemed to play very very well.
  17. My first year watching it. Picked the Browns because I like an underdog. One of the best this season it seems.
  18. Hard to write satire when the politicians are satirical in real life
  19. Removed my Facebook and YouTube apps straight away. So much time lost to these. Really good watch
  20. Depends on your idea of success. If your idea of success is top flight football then a fan owned club would be a bad idea. However if your idea of success is that AG is a fun place to be, with great value tickets, the fan owned would be a bad idea. For me, the fans never seemed so toxic and entitled. But when you're paying through the nose based on the promises of Ashton and SL to get you PL football, damn right you'd be annoyed at this appointment. For me the final straw was the massive price hike for disabled fans in 2018, and I've not been back. The club is now very much run as a busin
  21. This this this. Football isn't about winning per ce, but it's the memories, the ups, the downs, the long drives home in sullen silence or the joyous march back up North street with your mates.
