    Humm, only 2 weeks till the draft then guys and I have 3 questions for you:

    a) who goes no.1? Green, Newton or Gabbet
    Not sure about the other two issues really (or this one lol) but im going to go out on a limb with this one. Gabbet will go first but neither will go to the panthers who will look to upgrade elsewhere and give Jimmy Clausen another chance. I'm going to say that all the focus on newton is to much of a focus as people try and bluff each other. I also dont think the Bronco's will take a QB as Orton really isnt that bad and Tebow has potential........granted its not the most likely scenario ever but we shall see

    I've found if your getting Jerseys then go a size smaller-I have two Lions Jerseys a L Joey Harrington one which swamps me (considering my height I found that a bit of a suprise!) and a M Sanders throwback which is a) sweet and b) Again slightly too big...

    Humm, only 2 weeks till the draft then guys and I have 3 questions for you:

    a) who goes no.1? Green, Newton or Gabbet
    b) How far does Blowers slip
    c) Who wants to trade up for a no.13 pick and what would you offer?

    Oh and go for the Chargers-the powder blue kit is one of the finest in the league (hate the new dark blue regulars) and Rivers/Gates is an awesome combo. If rivers ever gets a Superbowl he is defiantly a HoF player. The 9ers are a bit of a mess at the moment-Alex Smith isn't NFL quality, Gore is a good but not great RB and they lack recievers outside of the TE (whose name I've forgotten temporally). Willis is the best MLB in the league, finally edging out Ray LEwis due to his youth, but outside of that they lack a decent pass rush.
    Still think Panthers will pick Newton, they're in dire need of a franchise QB and Clausen isn't up to it.
    I don't think he'll fall too far, I can see him going mid-1st round, someone like Washington, Houston or St.Louis will pick him up as they all need a defensive end.

    And Vernon Davis is 49ers tight-end. Sick player

    People are saying they could take another QB this year as well

    Crazy.

    You/anyone know where I can get some NCAA gear? Preferably MSU?
    Everywhere I look I either find high prices or shady websites.

    International shipping rates are horrendous, I may as well catch a flight there and buy one.

    Yep thats the one-probably the third best tight end in the league (I'd put Pettigrew and Finley ahead of him with Clark, Celek, Gonzalez and Gates close behind...)

    Oh right, cheers mate. What size are you in normal clothes?
    well, perhaps I'm not the best judge. My sizing is weird. I'm reall tall but skinny, so clothes tend to hang a bit. small superdry t-shirts fit me fine. mediums at a push.

    call it small-medium. but this jacket needed to be a medium for it to be a great fit. it's OK, but I would have preferred medium.

    they have a size chart on the website. just measure yourself up, and then go for the size up if you are in the middle/top end of a category, or stay with it if you are at the low end.

    Yeh, I did this easily. Everyone becomes vampires once they get to uni.
    But, personally, I wouldn't pay for the pass, they cost too much.

    Thinking about it its incredible how quickly you learn. I could probably name every teams RB and QB quite easily and possibly a couple of top players as well. And the whole Lions Roster...

    I blame Madden.

    Madden is a dream to learn players names by I reckon I could name 75% of every roster and if you gave me any players name off hand I would be able to tell you the position , team and how good they were which is unreal, I wish I could revise for my A levels with similar success.
