    Yeah it's really good, I've seen all of it Watching that as well as The League is what got me in to American Football in the first place.
    I powered through season 1 over about 2 weeks and just started season 2. I'm such a sucker for American football films and shows, have you seen the Friday Night Lights film? That's awesome.

    I haven't actually, only because I heard about it after starting the show, and apparently its not as good so I'm not too fussed. But yeah FNL is so good, and Tyra and Lyla :coma: I really do recommend The League, its probably only about 20% football but it really is hilarious.

    Whoa Flacco did it, going to OT. I just wish I was at home to see the first three quarters :/

    Oh, the Broncos can **** off. They should have tried to score rather take a knee. Only needed to be in field goal range with timeouts remaining. Too much fear of something going wrong... And now they're on the back foot at the start of OT with Ravens having the ball. Serves them right.

    Not when you've got £5 on Bronco's to win the Superbowl, and it fudges your accumulator at the first point of asking, this game is disastrous!

    Personally I would do the following:

    Run clock to 1 second and call Timeout. Throw desperate Hail Mary.

    You can understand them being scared of an interception if Manning forces intermediate throws into a (generally) talented Ravens secondary. But the Hail Mary which in turn expires the clock would be worth the effort IMO. Even if its picked off, they would be on their arse way down field anyway.

    No, I can't understand fear, to be honest. You'd have faith in your side to get the job done in the first minute, so why not the last? Send your guys out there to do what they do best. Play football. It's just incredibly weak, in my opinion. I'd have had no problem with them doing what you suggest either.

    I'm sure they've delayed the kick off of the other game in the past when the first game has gone to OT.

    Surely the odds of throw a hail mary pick 6 are lower than a completed hail mary, as it's basically 50/50 anyway once its up in the air.

    Great pick! COME ON BALTIMORE. I want an AFC Championship rematch!

    Fantastic kick under pressure from a rookie. Everything was great about Ravens in the last few minutes starting with the phenomenal desire to tackle the Broncos player for a loss on the punt.
