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.

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

I just love how it took till 33 to decide he might need to try another position!

Pats have been on a shopping spree, wouldn't be surprised.

The season is just around the corner. The Real Goat, AD99 goes 5x99 on Madden, Akers is out for the year, Stafford ready to take QB1 for the Rams.

Rodgers shows up to training camp for the one last dance, Adams hasn’t committed to the packers either.

NFL strict rules about vaccination has upset some, including Hopkins. The Rams fan in me hopes he sits out the year. ?

OBJ seems to be flying, Barkley looks fit again. 
Can the Bills build on last year? Can KC bounce back? What will the Steelers deliver this year? 
Daks back… will it matter?

Can’t wait for the season to start!!!

Just over a month before we kick off the season ... that came up quick!! 

Not really in the swing of things just yet but there is certainly a lot going on especially at the Packers!  Stafford/Rams is an interesting one but it could be a good match-up

All the vision I’ve seen from practice is very positive. Some good connections with DJax long down the field but that threat makes me smile at the extra space Kupp will get as the field stretches. Kupps route running with Staffords arm and timing I hope becomes a thing of beauty.

As I was saying @Macca

Stafford to Jackson. Against the cowboys.

Full stadiums for all venues (at this stage)

Another sport that needs crowds ... some other sports not so much

I'll post up a brief preview on the tipping comp soon enough but I don't see any reason to change anything

3 road winners with 1 or 2 points up for grabs depending on the week (week 17 -  3 points)

Def needs crowd and in terms of LA, fan fights the very first time they had fans in it.

Anyone watching Hard Knocks? Rolled my eyes when I first heard it would be Dallas but after seeing Elliott’s inability to wrap a birthday present and Jerry Jones having a cheeseburger while on the phone to his the head athletic trainer there could be some value in this season! :p

Sippos makes it as Eagles punter. Great work.

On the Rams, Hekker manages to keep the punting job and his comp is traded to the packers. Sony Michel is traded to the Rams to replace Akers. Atwell showed some and will be the punt returner and maybe a small amount of snaps. I would love to see him and Jackson both run deep at speed with Stafford throwing.

 

I have swindled the Friday and Monday off round one so that’s going to be great for me and horrible for the wife 😂

@Gorgoroth  @Dappa Dan  @DeeSpencer  @JV7  @Dee Zephyr  @Go the Biff  @titan_uranus  @layzie  @cowboy_from_hell  @Clintosaurus  @DemonDave  @pantaloons  @Strafford 

Tipping comp again?  We get 5 or 6 starters it's a goer

Reigning champions are Clintosaurus & titan_uranus whilst all previous winners include Clintosaurus (twice),  Gorgoroth (twice),  Dappa Dan,  JV7,  DeeSpencer,  Cowboy_from_Hell,  titan_uranus & Strafford.

From 3 picks tip 3 road winners in any given week is the task at hand (for those new to this thread) 

Various points are on offer as we work our way through the season in order to find an overall winner.  It's a breeze (apparently!)

Weeks 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 14 are worth 1 point (for 3 correctly tipped road winners) and weeks 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 & 16 are worth 2 points (week 17 is worth 3 points)

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
