Topic: NFL

have any of you signed up to the fantasy football on the nfl site? it's incredible! instead of just choosing players like in uk fantasy games you draft instead - proper american style. so in a twelve team league no teams will share the same players, which is a much better way of doing it.
im in 3 leagues so far, my first live draft is on sunday and then i will have 2 automated drafts for my other teams.

Re: NFL

I've done this the past few years for baseball. It's ace, but if you auto draft you can be fucked over to an unbelievable extent.

It is so much better when nobody has the same teams though.

What's more amazing is that fantasy baseball is actually more exciting than real baseball.

Re: NFL

anyone going to the saints - chargers game at wembley?

Re: NFL

cheapest tickets i could get were £90 each so ive left it for now. im thinking of either catching a game over in the US this season or leaving it til closer to the time. think there is still another phase of ticket sales to come.

bit concerned with the automatic draft! live draft on sunday, will post my team!

Re: NFL

i went for the 80 quid tickets. should be a good game.

rich, i have a league with 12 other players in it (all UK based), it has a live draft at the end of august (so you don't get screwed by injuries). if you'd like to join, send me a PM. ideally we need an even number of players so if anyone else is interested...

Re: NFL

yeah, that would be cool if you send me an invitation. have you got my hotmail still? hope there's still space tonight as i dont think i can get on it at work

should be a great game at wembley, definitely better than last years. im sure i'll end up going

Re: NFL

I had no idea you Brits liked American football.

Re: NFL

currently looking for another player for our fantasy league, someone shoot me a message if anyone's interested, we currently have 13 players and an odd number isn't as good.

the nfl is having regular season games in the uk for the forseeable future!

Re: NFL

i think we should have a franchise. the london monarchs II! lets move the dallas cowboys out here. i can't stand the dallas cowboys.

Re: NFL

I'd be interested in that spot Andy, see if I can do even worse than I am in baseball this year.

Re: NFL

yeah, definitely at the expense of the cowboys! i hate those fuckers

did you ever go to any monarchs games andy? i was a regular for a couple of seasons

Re: NFL

i saw them play in '96 against scotland, it was a dreadful game. didn't really encourage me to go again!

I'd be interested in that spot Andy, see if I can do even worse than I am in baseball this year.

i'll e-mail you the details.

Re: NFL

i was at that game i think, white hart lane i believe. the monarchs missed a field goal with about 3 seconds left (probably the worst FG attempt ive ever seen) and then scotland won in overtime

Re: NFL

yes, it was at white hart lane. i think at one point the monarchs were called for having 12 men on the field during a field goal attempt. a field goal attempt! laughable.

Re: NFL

field goals werent their forte. i remember one game they had a field goal, fumbled the snap and subsequently lost about 40 yards on the play! nobody could get hold of the ball and it just kept on getting knocked further and further back down the field!

Re: NFL

classy stuff! made me think of wrong way riegels. i wish the video of this was on youtube:

i am sure i have seen it on VHS "back in the day".
