    You're not wrong, that looks a dreadful game in prospect, the Jags need to somehow become good... I'm hoping their 1st round QB this year turns into a proper franchise guy for them, Bridgewater at Wembley next year? Yes please! I'd quite like to see Jags v Dolphins next year but any game will do.
    While it looks a dreadful game in some respects I'm a niners fan so am actually looking forward to it

    Thanks dude. I do agree we have an amazing pitch with a great stand and some very devoted fans, who continued to show support in the hardest of times (like when you guys dropped 79 on us :broken:). Makes me sad as some of them came as far as south Wales to watch us.

    Our announcer works at both Cardinal stadium and Colchester for the Gladiators. Despite not winning this year, he said we look much better than the Gladiators, who were atop division 1 south. I dunno. We had some unlucky days (only 24 of us going to south Wales and missing key players, a pick 6 called back against Sussex). But again, the fact remains we just didn't cut it in the prem this year. I myself have only played 2 years as a senior and defensive back, so I have masses of room for improvement.

    Already looking forward to the 2014 season, despite having a ton of uni work (final year of radiography).

    Good luck this weekend.
    Is this the ipswich cardinals by any chance

    Sure dude. I went without meeting any of the players beforehand just last February. The coaches love mentoring rookies; always give a shout out to new comers in the post-practice speeches and such. The other players are good guys. Some will really take you under their wing.Made some good new friends in the brief time I've been with them.

    What position are you looking at trying out? I know we have some rookie days coming up soon.

    Just realised you probably meant as a spectator -_- Errr yeah, the season will start in April, and we usually have a BBQ and outside stall to buy stuff from. We even have our own game programmes printed! Entry I think is usually 2 or 3 quid, but the fan experience is as good as it gets in the BAFL. There's an announcer calling every play, keeping the fans updated as to what went on / what's going on. And usually, as it's in the spring or summer, it's a great way to spend a sunday outside :P

    I didn't mean to try out. I'm a weed and would be absolutely destroyed. I just noticed admission prices on the website and wondered about It from a spectator basis

    Sorry, I corrected my previous post.

    Sure you couldn't be a kicker? :P or if you wanted to get involved (you get a free burger + drink at half time) you could help with the officiating (chain gang/ball boy).

    Problem with betting on the NFL is the fact that is always a few surprises every week.
    I usually put on maybe a 7 or 8 fold each week. If you bet on every game you are 99% certain to get at least one wrong!

    This is of course what makes the NFL brilliant. The sheer fact that you cannot predict anything.

    Well good luck with all of that and I hope it goes well for you lot! Haven't managed to watch any of the games which is a little disappointing but 4-0 is awesome!

    We still have Amendola, Gronkowski and Vereen to return. Safe to say if healthy come december is when this team will be clicking on all cylinders. :woo:

    Yeah I saw he didn't allow a completion in the game. Nice that we have a lock down guy Still can't cover tight ends though and Big Vince down :cry2:

    Solder though I hear has been unbelievable. Hasn't allowed a sack or QB hit.
