Just wondering if anyone else watches American football?

Never really seen it before but since its been on t.v over here (and getting bigger) I've actually enjoyed watching it. :)

The stops in play are perfect for grabbing snacks.
Or checking on the results of your own team :D

TFF-alyspe coming so soon after Jerry Jones being named exec of the year can't be a coincidence.

Depends how long it takes Ravenbish to turn up and say something mean about Neil Reynolds.

I'm sorry for dumping you out of the fantasy league, only to lose by 0.5 points in the final. I let both of us down.

Packers vs Patriots Superbowl please.

Views on Cardale Jones?

Welcome back.

Oi Stagat, no need.

I won't be shocked if we lose tomorrow. Andrew Luck is probably due a win against us. Depends if BB will unleash Jonas Gray from the doghouse or not.

Seahawks will take down the Packers I fear. Think Beast Mode will just be too much for their D to handle.

PS does this mean I now have to defend my Fantasy League Championship Belt now?

I can't see it happening, the Colts are far too one-dimensional on offense and Belichick will have something up his sleeve to throw Andrew Luck off his game.

Always been a big Patriots fan since living over in the States for a year back in 2008. Since moving to Dubai, I haven't been able to watch as much as i'd like (I use to be a 3 games every sunday kind of guy when I was living in UK), but I still check nfl.com every monday morning.

Fair comment and hey Vegas agrees but I'm not writing off the Colts. I was very impressed with the press coverage they used on Denver and will be a big challenge to overcome. That said where there's Gronk there's hope.

On a side note does anyone know if Jimbob or Kim Mitten have been given the link to here?

With regards to Jimbob, I could sign up (again) onto the NFLUK forum and PM him there. No idea on Kim Mitten.

By the way, you have unknowingly provided me with Patriots updates for the past 3 years, so thanks for all your postings on the old site!

All part of the service PH (technically the likes of Adam Schefter and Greg Bedard on Twitter are really to thank).

You watching tomorrow?

Its a late one for me but I definitely will be. Is it 4:30PM ET (01:30 UAE Time) from what I can recall?

One of our presenters at the radio station I work at is a huge Colts fan so we're heading to a yank bar out here to watch. Monday will be fun at work.

I think it's a little later than that around 6:40 ET or so be about 03:40 UAE time if my maths isn't totally off.

I know that they alternate the first and last games between the AFC and NFC each year but with the other game being played on the West Coast that is a rather earlier start time than they will be used to. Probably got it the wrong way around this year.

It's bizzare that the west coast game is the earlier of the too.

Has Ravenbish made it over? (I love him really)

I posted summat on the fantasy league page on the off chance any of the stragglers see it at some point.

Fuck, he's online now. If I'd waited 2 mins I wouldn't have had to admit my true feelings.

Actually can't wait for the game tonight. Have always despised the Colts, as they have traditional been our biggest rivals since I started watching. Like I said before, I'm a bit rusty as I haven't been able to properly watch for 3 years so a couple of questions:

Has Andrew Luck lived upto the hype of being the most predictable number one pick in recent years?

Has Gronk's arm held up over the past couple of years or does he still have problems?

Does the AFC look as strong as the NFC or will it be whoever wins the Packers/Seahawks game will end up as superbowl winners?

Help me out! I feel stupid!

I miss big kev on a sunday! Is he still going on Sky?
