    Lucky you!!! Which Conference game did you go to?
    Brady's last hurrah? Joe Flacco might have a thing or two to say about that..

    I do love Brady though, I wouldn't mind too much if he gets another ring. He does deserve it!
    2004 when they beat the Steelers. I've been to a couple bowl games as well though but i wouldn't call it as "big" as conference final.

    At this rate with our receiving corp we wont be making a superbowl again. Though saying that we've improved on defense and when we won our Superbowls we didn't have stud receivers. It was Good Offense and Good defense. In the last few years its just Amazing Offense awful defense. Too much for Brady to do.

    One more ring is all i ask then i don't mind us sucking for 8 years

    How much roughly are tickets to the 'greatest show on earth'? Do season ticket holders of the teams get preference or something or is it just a free for all?

    Hmm I think they go from like 1.7 grand to like 6 grand. Its much cheaper buying it months before the game but if you wait to see what teams are in it the price will have risen badly.

    I know the conference final match set my dad back 280$ but that was 8 years ago.

    That's more or less the prices i'd expect. Not too bothered about seeing any particular team, though if the Chargers ever make it I wouldn't mind of course...

    Yup. Once tickets are sold out though expect to pay upwards of 5 grand on the secondary market. I think I'l leave the Superbowl dream for another year or so. I'm content with two games this year. I do want to go to Candlestick park before SF49ers move.

    I'm actually going to be flying to Boston as my mate's camp for Camp America is near there. Then we'll just be making our way west, down California then wherever else we feel like!

    Hoping to get a game at the Gillette (where we spank someone) and hopefully one at Candlestick!

    Thats what i want to do! It may just have to be two games at the Gillette though and no Candlestick

    I actually considered applying to do Camp America exchange but i think i'l do it next year or so.

    When you going? I better not run into you :fuhrer:

    It does sound quite good for travelling, I'd do it before you can't. I already work so couldn't take an entire summer off!

    DJ Hayden's stock has just risen astronomically. Mike Mayock says hes the best corner available in the draft. I'm not convinced but his recovery from his incredible story. Taken from somewhere else about what happened.

    "He collided with a safety in a passing drill and got the safety's knee in his chest.The collision tore the inferior vena cava in his heart. The injury itself is most commonly seen in high-speed vehicle accidents and the fatality is 95% due to the massive loss of blood. He told the media at the NFL Combine that after the accident he could see much out of his left eye. It just went pitch black. And he suddenly felt cold and sleepy. Alonzo Highsmith, senior personnel executive for the Green Bay Packers said that the only people who had the injury are not alive and the doctors haven't seen it."

    Normally takes 6 weeks before your out of hospital for that. He was out in 6...

    Seahawks 49ers obviously! Shame you can't see the Pats though.

    Bronco's and Browns looks possible for me !
