Re: The US sports thread

I was surprised by the result last night but pleasantly so. I did feel that he 4-0 run to open the season flattered them but I honestly didn’t see the Raiders doing them over.

One thing Andy Reid’s teams will inevitably do is lose when it matters. That’s why I’d never pick them for a Super Bowl.

Re: The US sports thread

Good news is he had surgery today and it's not career threatening. He'll not play again this season by sounds of it but should be back next season. Best case scenario I guess! :?

Re: The US sports thread

The Gordon Hayward injury for the Celtics last night, 5 mins into his debut 🤢 Certainly one of the worst I’ve ever seen, and I remember Cisse at Ewood Park! https://i1.wp.com/dwri.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/gordon-hayward.jpg?resize=620%2C400&ssl=1 Broken shinbone and ankle inc. dislocation.

Re: The US sports thread

Tony Romo is a decent shout although I have been really enjoying his brand of commentary, after years of the woeful Phil Simms. He’s a Wisconsin native also but he’s had injury concerns and Green Bay’s line is going to get any QB killed the way they are playing. I think even with Kaps mobility you’d...

Re: The US sports thread

Nobody is going to give Kaepernik a spot now he’s suing the league for collusion under the CBA (collective bargaining agreement). He believes team owners have been conspiring to keep him out of the NFL and to be honest I can’t say they haven’t been. He’s better than at least 10-12 starting QBs in th...

Re: The US sports thread

Must be a nightmare for the NFL bosses, Beckham Jr, Watt and Rodgers gone in a two-week span. Horrific.

Rodgers out with a suspected broken collarbone. Ouch! There goes Green Bay’s season!

Re: The US sports thread

He’s hardly been setting the world alight this season anyway, I should know. Antonio Brown has been disappointing also.

Re: General Election

Not to mention the sheer scales of the lies told by the leave campaign, the infamous NHS £350m per week number which was instantly disproved by the fact checkers. But not only that, I personally know a lot of people who voted for leave off the back of that promise alone, people who rely on the NHS. ...

Re: General Election

I also want to pose the question, has there been a more polar opposite conference season in recent years? The Labour one was breaking attendance records by members and delegates, had a great vibe throughout and a positive message from each of the main speakers, heavy in policy and ideas for the comi...

Re: General Election

I almost feel sorry for them, but then I remember they are Tories and well, they can go to hell. Could it get any worse? The cough, the P45, the letters slowly falling off the wall behind her, Bozo having to be told to get up and applaud... just a comedy sketch of hilarity. If it wasn’t for them put...

Re: The US sports thread

Good weekend for me, couldn't have gone much better! Demarco Murray is turning out to be an early season disappointment for me though but the Titans in general have been a disappointment for all the hype.

Onwards and upwards!
