Pats fan here. Been a fan of the sport since around 2000 and just couldnt resist the bandwagon that was building around the Pats post 2001.
Playing fantasy too, in a 10 man league so my roster is fairly stacked all over. I have Gostkowski tonight so hoping to pick up a few points. Hes a solid kicker and with a team that puts up TDs regularly its hard to go wrong with him. Heads up to anyone who had Miami or Tampa players starting this weekend as their game has been cancelled due to the pending hurricane, both teams on a bye week instead. Sit down Jarvis landry.
Predictions wise I see the Pats going close this year despite the loss of Edelman, although a lot will depend on Gronk staying healthy. Raiders a great shout too. Dallas would have been one of the front runners for the NFC for me too if it wasn’t for this ridiculous 6 week ban Elliot is facing. I really hope that is thrown out. Another season, another Goodell shitstorm.
Im a big baseball fan too. I used to find it difficult to watch until I gave it a go playing it for a couple of years. It may come as a surprise to some on here but there is an Irish baseball league and its actually very well organised and competitive although the community is really small. Baseball is the type of game that is so much more interesting to play than to watch. By playing you pick up all the rules and different scenarios very quickly as you can imagine you will need to . Strange in that the more you know about the game the better player you will be, rather than a dependence on athletic ability.
Staying up for the opener tonight, hoping for a good game. Very interesting match up.
