Think that might qualify me to support them as my second team, depends how things go though.

Why don't you go all out and support the entire league.

And the refs :p

I do quite like their kit, and they do tend to win quite a few games on their own.

Currently i'm auditioning for a second team. As the Chargers suck.

I don;t think thats too smart :( Firstly because the Jets suck and secondly because your girl might not be too happy!

Sorry but isn't that from Saved by the Bell? Where Screech reveals that he supports the refs because they never lose!

The reason that having the Pro Bowl before the Superbowl has made it ridiculous.

This year's AFC Pro-Bowl Quarterbacks:
Peyton Manning
Phillip Rivers (can't be arsed)
Tom Brady (injured)
Matt Schaub
Ben Roethlisberger (injured)
Carson Palmer (can't play, injured)
Vince Young

If Indy reach the Superbowl, Matt Schaub is the starting QB. Vince Young is the backup.

And God knows who is the 8th QB and 3rd QB. Flacco? Brady Quinn? Henne? Orton? Russell? Cassel? Garrard? Sanchez?

Most ridiculous decision ever is to have it before the Pro Bowl.

(I'm no fan of the Celtics either, I'm just kidding.)

Wait until you see teams getting points for missing FGs. Absolutely bonkers.

Sorry, forgot I'd banned myself... although that wasn't strictly NFL stuff. As you were. :clown:

Welcome. :p

You'll get many enjoyable seasons watching the soon to be (if he isn't already) best quarterback in the game in the best stadium in the land gunning it up the field. Just need to sort out the playoff defence.

Swanny32 21-01-2010 11:38 PM

Welcome to Deftones, he's picked an NFC rival but it's ok, he likes the Deftones!:p

It is a pointless exercise. Does anyone watch it?

They should just do what they do down here in the AFL. Name the sides, have a big piss up and get into all sort of shennanigans at 3am in the morning. A few will end up in the lock-up. Far more entertaining for everyone involved.

Yes and I usually really enjoy it as one final hoorahhh after the season and one last fix of NFL (particularly last year when i was really starting to get into it). So angry about its mismanagement this year :(

And welcome deftones as I haven't really said it before. I'm relatively new here too so thanks for taking that seat and making me look a tad more knowledgeable ;) Should be able to pick it up pretty quickly if you watch it enough and we will answer any questions happily (especially paul if he gets a chance to show his expertise off ;) ) Also nice team selection, I have a little soft spot for the Packers :D

oz_da II 22-01-2010 12:22 AM

They may as well make the Pro Bowl a game of flag football, there would be the same number of hits.

jazman 22-01-2010 12:25 AM

Is the reason so that there is not a week of no football between the championship games and SB?

Don't you start ;):D

It may confuse someone who possesses a simple mind like yourself.

Born in Canada. Have two passports, Australian & Canadian (Dad is Australian) and a UK "right of abode". Live in Australia.

Can't you see the inconsistency in saying you are not Australian, then stating twice the word "we" when mentioning what Australians do. Fool!! :bash:

oz_da II 22-01-2010 12:54 AM

I've spent 40% of my time in Canada, 40% in Australia and 20% in the UK.

When I talk about North American sports and beer I'm Canadian.
When I talk about Australian sports and beer I'm Australian.

Simple really, even for a moron like yourself.
