I was surprised how many teams have only played one International Game since it began. That includes England, Germany, Mexico.

Ravens, Bills, Panthers, Browns, Cowboys, Packers, Colts, Eagles, Steelers, Titans and Washington.

Green Bay were the last team to do it last year but, Steelers in 2013, Cowboys in 2014 and the Bills and Lions in 2015 are long waits.

That Quarterback documentary is really good, and on British Netflix

With the preseason now underway (your last chance to see a third stringer play a snap) I have reactivated the BBS Spread Pickums.

Anyone is welcome to join. All you have to do is pick which team will beat the spread (i.e a win by more than, or a loss by less than, the advertised spread) for each game. We play the whole regular season.

Just join our league to play (you will have to sign up for an account). Follow this link and select join a group: our game number is 14763 and our password is the nickname of Crystal Palace with a capital first letter.

Rebump.
Come on all you armchair experts - prove you are not just hot air.

(Games start on Thursday. You can still sign up after then but your predictions will be short for week 1.)

9ers off to a good start

CT_Palace 10-09-2023 09:35 PM

Less than 5 mins into the Raiders' game and I hear "and Garoppolo is hurt"

I shouldn't laugh.


EDIT tbf he misses one play, comes back in and throws a TD

greybot 10-09-2023 09:41 PM

They played Don't look back in anger at the end of the 49ers Steelers game. Bit random!

Almost as random as my team scoring more points as 49ers did on the road tonight!

Go Jags :lux:

CT_Palace 10-09-2023 09:44 PM

The 9ers D was as huge as ever. Purdy had a good 1st half but was very average in the 2nd.

My one big criticism of Jimmy Garoppolo is that he doesn't have a brilliant mafia style nickname.

Well, aside of him not being very good.

Detroit's three year plan looking like it's paying off. I'm doing the thing that I always do where I hate the fact that I dated a couple of 'proper' Boston girls in my younger days (and cumulatively spent at least three years in the city on and off) and am tethered to the Pats. I appreciate that I've been lucky for most of it!

(I drew the line at the Bruins. Lemieux was too much of a draw in the 90s for me to fall for any other team.)

CT_Palace 11-09-2023 02:33 AM

Being lumbered with the Pats can't really be called unlucky!

Personally I've followed the 9ers since the C4 days back in the 80's. And my first spell living in the US was in SF during the 90's. Been a long time since the 9ers tasted Super Bowl success, but you stick with who you support, right?

CT_Palace 11-09-2023 02:40 AM

watching the Cowboys v Giants. My god you can't have asked for a more disastrous start to the new season for the Giants. The 1st half has been a disaster.

Absolutely - my first Red Sox game was well before the curse was lifted and it was quite nice being smug for a bit!

Not so smug now, mind :supergrin:

Rodgers out for the season.

Shame for him and the Jets, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t laugh when I saw that headline.

Me too. It was partly due to a Clive James documentary filmed at their training camp and featuring Bubba Paris as his guide. It was a rare, for those times, open all areas piece and it hooked me. Added to which I visited San Fran Cisco in 1981 on a Club football tour. Shortly after, and gotta say it helped, the 49ers started winning, regularly, and were as talented a side as I can remember. After which I've got used to the other side as well!

I chose the Vikings because I liked the purple and gold, Adrian Peterson and I found their team history to be a hilarious dark comedy. 7th best all time win percentage but no superbowls, it’s absurd.

greybot 17-09-2023 10:46 PM

Watched Jags v Chiefs. Thought we did well. Just came up a bit short on offence. Nice to see how far we are from a top side. Think we'll have a decent season.

CT_Palace 18-09-2023 01:48 AM

Difficult game for the 9ers today, but ultimately success over the Rams.

Playing on the road at the Rams is a bit of a joke - I reckon the home crowd was the minority. At best it was 50/50.
