NFL Season 2013/14 - Fantasy Comp/Discussion thread
« on: September 05, 2013, 12:52:00 PM »
Any NFL fans in APAT land?

Massive Washington Redskins fan here - total diehard for as long as i can remember....and i can remember a long time ago...back to the nicky horne days on C4 when Bonnie Tylers "I need a hero" was the theme tune!!

New season starts tonight - if there are any fans, be good to have a natter about all things NFL - make a few predictions - and if youre of the inclination, there is a very easy to play (and free!) fantasy game that NFLUK.com operate - ive created a league for you to join if youd like :

MTS Fantasy League (password : redskins) on www.nfluk.com

basic weekly roster needs setting where you have a budget to spend.

www.nfluk.com

Although i think the Redskins are up for a good season (as long as our star QB stays healthy!) i think the Superbowl will be fought out between the Seattle Seahawks and the Cincinatti Bengals....any people who like a flutter would be well advised to pop a quid or two on them....especially on the latter who are 18/1 to win the SB and 10/1 to win their Conference.

hope theres a few about i can have a natter to about the awesome NFL!

p.s Dallas Cowboys fans need not bother. ;)

I used to be a fan that long ago also... John Riggins for Washington... I liked New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.. I was watching around the time of "The Fridge". I used to go and watch BAF in Liverpool, The Centurions...
The C4 show was brilliant but I went off it when they changed the format of the show from all action highlights...

Chicago Bears - "Sweetness" was his nickname....one of the best running backs ever to grace the game.

The Bolts eh...one of the most underachieving teams of the last decade. Always quite liked them, especially when Tomlinson was playing - but boy have they regressed and im not sure what to make of them now. Envy you going over to watch them though - that will be amazing. Top of my bucket list is to watch the Redskins at Fedex Field.....itll happen...one day!

Ahhh John Riggins.....what a legend. I remember him rumbling all over defences in the early 80"s with Joe Theismann under center. Those were the days.

Few years later did William Perry come to limelight for the Bears - known more for their stifling defence than their offense.

Buffalo Bills notorious for appearing in 4 consective Superbowls in the early 90s....and losing them all. Including some absolute hammerings as well...including one to my very own Redskins...the last time we won a Superbowl. Im not sure the Bills have been anywhere closer either since that 4 and out!

how the hell have you got that team together from #8???

blimey mate....thats unreal. Jamaal Charles dropping to 13? I have him pegged at #3!

AJ Green at 28??? he should be second WR off the board after Calvin Johnson!

Reggie Bush at 73....dear me.....

i hope you have some serious bets on the outcome of that league mate!!!!
