Cows haven't dropped a game this season and they're at home. We'll get smacked by 60, our boys can't tackle.

Mikaele has very big wraps on him and he's straight into the starting front row spot as a first year NYC player so he must be going alright. Ain't heard a peep on the forum though. Anyone seen him go round yet this year?

Edit: Interesting. Any reason given?

58 gone, still 16-8 but apparently the Tigers are defending very well today.
