    I think the Red Socks will win with a 3-pointer in the final quarter. Statistically their offence is dominant.

    Well if I had the choice between $30 million and retiring at 23 or a job in engineering on a salary of $80,000 a year for the next 50 years, I know which one I'd be choosing.
    Well that's you. Don't judge someone else because they aren't as money motivated as you. Not a single player is in the NFL just for money. Sure it's a huge bonus, but the best players the ones who love football and are motivated to achieve. You don't get enough commitment from a player who is in it for the money or they attention.

    It wouldn't prevent that, it'd just give us another area in which to chat.

    I see your point I guess :p:

    That's you.

    Lots of people wouldn't drop out of university if they were offered a really well paying job (I wouldn't when I get there) a degree is worth more than just the money it garners you after you earn it.

    Any idea how competitive it is? My friend goes to Huddersfield, and he pretty much walked onto the team (not the most active guy either, and as a LB.)
    I wouldn't mind being second string QB for a while, as I'm not good enough for starter. :moon:

    Those ratings were absolute BS. Both Manning and Brady were too high. No active player should be higher than 20 to be honest.
    Really?
    Manning hasn't benefitted from an extraordinary offence or fantastic coaching, yet he's a 4 time MVP, and by 2015 will probably have broken Favre's touchdown and completed passes records.
    Even if he retired right now he's a lock for first ballot hall of fame, and as far as quarterbacks go there are at most 3 or 4 quarterbacks better than him in history, Montana and Young are the only two that really stand out for me, and with Bill Walsh as a coach and (for half of Montana's career anyway) Jerry Rice to pass to, it's not particularly difficult to make a case for Manning being their equal.
    Yes his playoff record is nowhere near impressive, but that's because the Colts as a team aren't superbowl calibre. Make no mistake, if Manning was at a different team, the Colts would have been about as successful as the Bengals have been over the last decade.

    Sussex uni doesn't have a football team We used to collaborate with "Brighton Tsunami" - Gay name, but now we cant due to some single institution rule. Guess they never got round to making one here. Sucks, i'd be a sweet TE.

    QB would probably suit me, can throw a ball well, however I would probably also try out for WR. Maybe TE if I get a little bigger over summer.

    Genius.

    Also, I'd try out for WR, but I've played it when messing around with friends, and I can imagine it being 100 times worse when you're playing really as the helmet really restricts your vision, and I don't wish to be slammed into from behind.

    Think I'll try out for Safety/QB/CB. Not the biggest guy around in height or girth, but hell, I'll go out there and try my luck.

    I'm not gonna lie, you'll get slammed into any position you play.

    :teehee:

    Yeah, the only issue I really foresee is that the level of ability is going to be quite low, so playing at WR means you will rarely make a catch if you run anything in excess of 30 yards. I can't see too many QBs in the teams being the English answer to Jay Cutler.

    Spoiler:

    Hoping no one picks me up on the Cutler mention.
