Just back from the US but couldn't get tickets to a pre-season game. Was in NY for week 1 but both the Jets and Giants were playing away. Wouldn't have got a ticket anyway. I'm a Raiders fan. I started following them when Masters was coaching Wests. Wests were black and white and the Raiders are black and silver so they seemed a good choice for me as a Wests fan. The other similarity were that Wests were the dirtiest team in the comp (Boyd, Donnelly etc) and the Raiders have always been regarded as the dirtiest team in the NFL. After years of not making the playoffs the Raiders came good last year and will be even better this year. Will be surprised if they don't play the Superbowl this season.

Was a fan of Dan Marino and later on lived and worked in Miami for 5 years so am a Dolphins fan. Like the Tigers they are useless for years and then have 1 or 2 good years so you get your hopes up and then back to having a losing record. Gotta enjoy the good years when they come around.

Does anyone play fantasy football?
Yeah I'm playing the nfl.com fantasy. This is my second year of doing it. I signed up to one of the auto-drafts and am competing against a bunch of randos
Im in a league with some guys at work through ESPN. I did a live draft at one of the guys' house. It was fun drinking beer and talking crap. Its my first year and Im only really doing it for the trash talk hahahaha. So far Im 1-0 ;)

I'm optimistic with Philly strengthening the offence. Last year the receiveng core couldn't catch a cold, Wentz will benefit greatly having some quality targets. He was let down criminally last year. They have a pretty good run coming up over the next few weeks against teams like the Giants, Chargers and Panthers. I'm hopeful that they get to 5 or 6-1 which could put them in a strong position to secure the NFC East. I don't see the Giants or Skins being threats.

That injury to Darby could hurt the eagles though, depending on how long he's out for. Giants offense stunk last week. The offensive line couldn't protect Eli & wide receivers couldn't get open. They also don't have much of a run game, and Eli is on the downward slope. It'll up to the defense to carry the giants again this year.
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

Darby is out 4-6 weeks, so that hurts.

Not ideal, but could be worse. As you mentioned, eagles schedule isn't too bad early for the opening part of the season.

Good luck. Seats in that place are expensive. Nosebleed (And I mean you duck for low flying aircraft) are over 110.00 a seat.

One of my wife's good friends married an American fella and moved to Kansas, Atchison is the name of the place they live I think? Looks like a rural-ish area.

Apparently AJ Green gave his team mates a rocket after the game. Sounds like funtimes at the Bengals lol.
I don't profess to be the world's biggest expert on the game, but Dalton would be on borrowed time if he keeps serving up that rubbish.

The offensive coordinator got the bullet after the game very reminiscent of WT,lets hope it has the same effect, no TDs in the first 2 games at home is pathetic.

It's just as tough being a Dolphins fan as it is being a Tigers fan. Wins are few and far between and when they do occur you just need to savour them. Scratchy game today but they got the win which is the only thing that counts.
