    Is it wrong that I'm excited for this new pro bowl format?
    I'm quite looking forward to it, hoping having big personalities as the team captains will liven things up a bit. They needed a change, just have to wait and see if it works really.

    Time for some Championship Weekend predictions.

    NFC: I think I'm going to take the 49ers against the Seahawks. I have no idea why I'm taking the Niners, I guess I just don't think Russell Wilson will be able to throw the ball at all, nor do I think Lynch will dominate again. The SF offense is coming into its own, showing some good balance between the pass and the run. I'm not sure the crew of Crabtree, Boldin, and Davis is necessarily enough to overcome Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor and the rest of the legion of boom, but I think they keep that Seahawks defense guessing. My mind still says Seahawks, but I'm going with my heart. Niners 23 - 20 Seahawks.


    AFC
    : I like the Patriots against the Broncos, especially with the losses of Harris and Von Miller. That Denver defense can be had even with a depleted receiving crew. Outside of DRC, the Denver DB's are old, slow dudes who can get burnt, whether it be on a slant or a go route. I also think the Pats can run it against a pretty good Denver defense, because their O-Line is a smash-mouth unit, which has been dominant this season. As for matching up against Manning, I think Talib on D. Thomas, Dennard on Decker, Collins on J. Thomas, Arrington/Ryan on Welker will get it done. Yet, the Broncos should be able to run it at will again, especially if the Patriots are in nickel/dime all the time like last game. Still I think the Patriots match-up as well as you realistically can against the Bronco offense, and can shred a porous Denver defense. Patriots 31 - 30 Broncos.

    I'll hopefully be at the Cowboys @ Jags game. They're usually sold out by the Superbowl, I can't see them being totally sold out by the end of the day. I'll be negotiating with my seminar tutor to make the our 10 minute break at 10 rather than 9:50 anyway

    Woo! Got a lot of mates together for the Lions game. We're in the farthest back row though, so I have no idea how much of the game we'll actually be able to see... Anyone who's been to Wembley know if views are overall fairly decent?

    Honestly mate there really isn't a bad seat. Plus live sport is as much about the atmosphere as the sport.

    I heard that the seats in the corners aren't great for NFL viewing.

    I'm in 514 for Cowboys @ Jags and despite the height I think it'll be a great spot to watch the game from because you'll see everything from a very non-TV angle and you'll be able to see both sides of the ball easily until the ball is in the opposite side redzone. That said I am bringing my glasses because that looks a long distance!

    I'm in 552 right at the back! I guess the central position will be great as I'll get a good view regardless of where the action is.

    If you're in 552 you're at like midfield, thats decent, I was trying to get that sort of seat at first but I just kept getting corner offers on the re-roll so in the end I went endzone and am very happy with my seats right between the sticks.

    Here's a more readable seat map for when we're comparing seats too. I just realised that one is borderline unreadable at its size.

    Yeah, I've been to a couple of football matches behind the goals, the atmosphere is crazy there.

    Yeah, and there lies the one problem with my seats in 514, its got the entrance to the stand underneath it and thus that section is smaller than the rest so may lack a bit of that atmosphere but hell, if either side is a little crazy it'll probably transfer to our section. I'm bringing my brother, sister and uncle to the game and we're making a family weekend of it which will be nice. My sister though, is attending the game because she likes facepaint and the thought of huge men in armour smashing into each other. I'm going to have to educate her about the game before we go or she'll do my head in asking questions, my brother and uncle can hold their own though so I anticipate some good football chat. I also hope the people in the stand want to talk to you in the game breaks because I enjoy random encounters with strangers at places like this, it makes the whole thing more memorable.
