Re: The US sports thread

A delay of game penalty, after a timeout. And then 47 yards of penalties to gift New England 7 points.... A delay of game after a timeout that’s completely on Jacksonville, that’s a huge no-no, and 47 yards of legitimate holding penalty. You can’t grab a guy 40 odd yards downfield and not give up a...

Re: The US sports thread

I’ve been saying the Jags are the worst possible matchup for the Pats since the halfway point of the season. They’re far, far better than most people give them credit for. That said, that hit on Gronk was just a pure dirty play. Could of knocked the guy out the game (I hope not). Wasn’t necessary an...

Re: The US sports thread

Well my predictions went down the toilet didn’t they. What a weekend of games. Both the Sunday games were absolutely outstanding. Sadly I missed both of them so I’ve only seen highlights. The Steelers paid for underestimating the Jags. They were so focused on revenge against the Patriots that they l...

Re: The US sports thread

Yeah I have to agree the Decker pass interference call was total bullshit. Not only was it inside 5 yards but both players had hands all over. If anything offset penalties and replay the down but even that would be harsh. I didn’t get a good look at the dodgy false start/encroachment penalty but I’v...

Re: The US sports thread

There’s bad calls and bad officiating in every game, some for and some against. There were quite a few holds and facemasks missed committed by the Titans too. Also are you trying to say the NFL is somehow aiding the Patriots by messing with the clock? Because the game clock is controlled completely ...

Re: The US sports thread

Very good point, I should have known you meant the Boston Patriots... ironically that was the original name of the New England Patriots... and they played their games at both Fenway Park and Harvard university.

Re: The US sports thread

A terrorist group from the Metal Gear Solid series? :shrug: I think you may be right, being a fan does give you less perspective but I happen to be one of the more realistic fans, there are some whose arrogance absolutely fucks me off and I’m likely to tell them that. I’ve seen it today about the Ti...

Re: The US sports thread

Man United of the NFL mate. Manure fans don't get why everyone hates them, either. The fact you think it might be related to deflategate demonstrates it. No I’m quite aware that fans hated on the Pats before deflate gate. There are parallels between the Pats success under Belichick and Manure’s suc...

Re: The US sports thread

I really don’t get the hate for the Patriots. They don’t spend more than other teams, they aren’t loud and rowdy and don’t make outrageous claims. They are quite simply run well, play hard and do what other teams don’t, that is stay consistent. The scandal of deflate gate is an absolute pile of bull...

Re: The US sports thread

So guys, predictions for this weekends games? I can only see the Patriots and Steelers winning this weekend and playing in the championship game, though the Jags could cause an upset. Their defense matches up well with Steelers. Supposed it depends on how Brown is after his injury. Mark my words I d...

Re: Energy companies!!!

I was wondering how you'd got on. Do you know why you hadn't had any bills from them? It may have been because I had paperless billing enabled on my account with them, which then by default rolled over to my nan as the landlady. That is until they finally made contact with my mum (as nans power of ...

Re: Train strikes

I do believe guardless trains are unsafe, mostly due to a experiencing a few unpleasant situations after football games where the guard has helped defuse a bad situation. I almost got a kicking by a group of Sunderland fans one time after a Rovers game for “looking at them” because they were being r...

Re: Energy companies!!!

My mum settled it, the bill wasn’t as expensive as they initially quoted and the majority of it was the standing charges as opposed to usage. So we’re clear now that the supply wasn’t tapped. I believe it’s all settled now. First Utility have actually been quite good to deal with throughout, despite...
