Commitments kept me away from this site for most of the last couple of months so I only sporadically tipped (plus I lost a bit

of interest in this NFL season when it became apparent the Niners were going to go from Superbowl participants to also rans due to one of the most savage injury lists I've ever seen).
Nevertheless thanks again for putting this on each year @Macca its appreciated as it gets me hyped at the start of every year to have a crack at tipping...

Yeah thanks Dave

And thanks for playing your part.  I usually post up more on the NFL in general but have been quite busy with work this last 2 years

So running the comps has been about it!

Gorg keeps plugging away though and Dappa should be back soon enough as well

It's a great sport to follow in our Spring/Summer as 7Mate broadcasts 2 games a week (and all the playoffs) ... youtube has a host of action & highlights so it's easy to keep up even without cable

The season is way too short though!

Your 49ers have been up and down in the recent past but so much can depend on the QB.  But very good (QB) can work in the absence of exceptional

Need a good team regardless of the QB ... as we saw with Tampa who were good/great everywhere.

To restrict KC to 9 points was remarkable.  Tom,  Gronk,  Fournette,  Jones & Evans were the cream on top (if one believes in the philosophy that defence wins Championships)

RE: Shaw Barrett I loved his game too. Personally would have loved him to get MVP he really set the tone for the game and brought the heat to Mahomes time and time again. Historically though if you don't do something crazy like run a pick back for a touchdown you don't get a look in.

Russell Wilson looks like he is angling towards leaving Seattle!!!

Eagles wanting the same sort of Draft picks for Wentz.... ha ha what!?!?!??

Seems that way for the first time in his career. Made it pretty clear he's unhappy with their line.

Also belated thanks to @Macca for the comp. But not too much thanks because I never come close to winning!

Wilson possibly moving?  I thought he was firmly entrenched at Seattle.  We've seen Goff & Stafford move so you never know

The chat about Rodgers has dissapated but both QB's have sounded-off which disappoints me somewhat.  Behind closed doors is where the chatter should stay

And apparently the Colts offered just 2 x 2nd rounders for Wentz and that's the best offer they've had (according to Ron Jaworski)

Wentz looked like the next big thing until his injuries ... now looks a shadow but I'd like to see him have a clear run at it before drawing a line

I reckon this off season will be brutal. So t think Wilson will traded but will he is already demanding a better oline so he doesn’t get sacked as much.

It's different to what we usually hear from the usual 'get on with the job' Wilson we usually hear. Got that bumper deal just 12 months ago but the guy obviously wants to win. 

I also think Pete Carroll has gone a bit stale in his play calling in recent years, doesn't vary it up much. Does he trust Russell enough? Speculating of course.

There is also rumours of a Wentz ertz and first rounder package. The Eagles oline was putrid. No one was kept clean. He has the skills but wether that knee has really hurt him. He doesn’t move as freely.

On Wilson, he wants a new oline, he blatantly said he is sick of being hit. And wanted to have a say in who they sign and draft.

I hope he leaves. I’d happily not have him in the NFC West. Although we did sack him about 16 times this year.

This is the Dan Patrick interview yeah? Had a bit of a Mick Malthouse Carlton about it :p saying hes been sacked 400 times and 'we need to do better'.

I say get the paperwork out and direct swap for Jimmy G.

There will always be a special sort of hatred for the niners.

I hated the Rams growing up. They were easily our bitterist rivals. But then the greatest show on turf and that Superbowl run a few years ago, you wanted to hate them and did but they just looked so darn good doing it. It would have been like hating Barcelona in their prime. 

The Seahawks on the other hand is such a manufactured hatred, although the Harbaugh vs Carroll thing a few years back brought some feeling to it. Other than that it's just meh and they always beat us anyway.

For me growing up and losing to Montana and Moss was painful and when he retired you though ok, might be ok enter steve Young... sigh. 
 

GSoT was great until we stuff up the SB and gave Brady his first win.

 

And I hate the Seahawks. Pete Carroll annoys me, I hated Sherman (still do) but appreciate Ailson and beast mode. 
oh and hate their fans.

Pete Carroll annoys me too, I can't figure out why other than because it's Seattle. I like the Trojans. I think he's a good coach but I also kind of feel like he lucked out with Wilson. 2 failed head coaching stints and 2 x 7-9 Seattle seasons before RW got there. 

I did like Kam Chancellor though back when you could hit.

I think Pete has a punchable face and the big open mouth chewing annoys me.

His fault they don’t have 2 SB rings. If he calls a Lynch run they score and they win.

Tim.Tebow is back in the NFL!

Signed a 1 year deal with the Jags as a tight end.  I hope he does alright

33 years old now but he'd be fit & healthy you'd imagine

I can’t see this working very well, but he is costing them sod all. And the jags will be poor so nothing lost if it doesn’t work.

Where will Julio Jones land? 

Pats seem to be offering for him. It will be weird seeing him in anything but a Flacons top.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
