    Sky should have put the Seahawks Niners game on.
    It's a primetime game, so Sky don't have the rights.
    It'll be on Channel 4

    Yeah man tell you who's impressing me Michael Buchannon. Guy has been everywhere. Remember seeing him in college and I liked him.
    I remember watching a draft analysis on him but I haven't really watched a lot of the pats this pre season so I wouldn't know. As for college football, I've watched about 3 college games since I moved to the uk 2 years ago so I'm not the best to comment on that either.

    Go and look up some of the NFL's hardest hits on YouTube, people would die if they didn't have pads on in American football. I love rugby, it's a great sport, but the raw hits are nowhere near as bad as American football. In rugby you mostly try to bring players down by dragging them down whereas in American football you try and bring them down by completely pile driving them! And besides that, in American football you aren't allowed to hold on to a player that doesn't have the ball so you can't drag them down, you have to keep trying to hit the guy with so much force for them to go down. So the force exerted on your body is a lot, so no it's not rugby for wusses, they need pads

    I used to hate him but I have to admit him and the patriots have grown on me. I don't think I've seen many press conferences funnier than the Tebow one!

    They don't want him to go on the PUP list so I'm thinking week 3 or 4 Gronk gets back. Fantasy reasons haha?

    Yeah Plus there's just the fact that I want to see him back, I absolutely love that guy and everything he stands for!


    And yeah, you've certainly improved since then... how did the two superbowls go against that medeocre Manning fella? :P

    Haha well he should be back by week 3 or 4 I think if they keep him off the PUP.


    Jeez should have beaten them both times. To think Welker makes the catch we win. Samuels makes the interception and we win as well in 2007 :sad:
