It's a Dolphins story I can at least smile about! :lux:

No Zach either.

What's the point, I may as well stay home.

Strathclyde Eagle 25-10-2007 11:45 PM

I know Elliott, I know. If they're all staying at home why should we come out?

You sure?

Michael Strahan on NFLTA said both teams not getting here until Friday morning and seems to be backed up on here

Well I can assure you there were about 10 or so fecking huge black guys dressed in Dolphins sweatshirts, jogging "pants" and caps being directed to the all you can eat section by some short white guy in a Dolphins leather jacket and slacks. Looked like part of the tream to me.

Sadly I bottled the "hope you get stuffed on Sunday" line.

Possibly the Fins' practice squad? I wouldn't imagine that a journo would go all the way to Florida to interview Marvin Allen.

Apparently Beck is going to be our starting QB after the bye week.

This excites me, but also makes me real nervous - he's bound to be bricking it behind center on (what will be) a 0-8 team, and a couple of shonky displays will only make that decision not to take Brady look all the more baffling.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-10-2007 02:24 PM

I'm not so worried about Beck, I'm more worried that he's got no-one to throw to. No Chambers, no Brown. David Martin doesn't scare anybody (except desperate fantasy owners).

If the boycott that rageagainstwayne.com* are trying to organise comes off at least the boo-birds won't be there on his debut.

* If you can take a protest seriously when it's hosted on MySpace.

Funny story :)

NFL Star: Londoners Speak English?

Updated: 11:56, Friday October 26, 2007
Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder has admitted not knowing people speak English in London.

The NFL player might want to check a map before he gets on board a plane for Sunday's prestige game against the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium.

Crowder, who comes from Atlanta in Georgia, may be praised on the field, but confessed geography was not his strong point.

He admitted he did not know until now where London was - or that Londoners spoke English.

"I couldn't find London on a map if they didn't have the names of the countries," he said.


"I swear to God. I don't know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that."

Crowder added: "I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him.

"That's the closest thing I know to London. He's black, so I'm sure he's not from London. I'm sure that's a coincidental name."

The Miami Dolphins are play the New York Giants at Wembley this Sunday in the first NFL regular-season game to be played outside the United States.

Skins v Pats is the Red Button game after the Wembley match-up, do people think the Green Man pub will show both 8.15pm games?

Don't start this again. :D

(See gen chit-chat if you haven't already. I've just got back from lunch and am going to take a quick look at the carnage.)

Oh.

Ben 1, Suex Eagle 0. :lux:

Just seen it :D

He can't be that great at revising his Dolphins playbook if he doesn't even know that people in England speak English :D

Finally got tickets to see an NFL match this year but will have to wait another month or so to see it... Colts @ Ravens.

Hopefully by then the Colts will have a "1" in the loss column from their game in a couple of weeks with the Pats!

saxoneagle 26-10-2007 06:51 PM

Still pissed off i'm missing the London game though!

saxoneagle 26-10-2007 08:26 PM

If the Pats and Colts win this week, the match in Indy will be a 7-0 team against an 8-0 team.

Has this ever happened where two unbeaten teams have met so late in the season?

It was pretty irregular to see two 5-0 teams playing (Cowbys v Pats) two weeks ago...

Grim Reaper 26-10-2007 10:24 PM

I take it Channing Crowder is amongst the 20% of yanks that can't find USA on a map

LLCOOLSTEVE 26-10-2007 10:28 PM

At work at Gatwick airport today, we had the Dolphins fly in along with a load of Cheerleaders :)

Giants and 49'Ers were either 10-0 or 9-0 one year.
