Deebo’s problem is he doesn’t fit a mould so there is no real market value for him, and he wants top top dollars yet the style he plays doesn’t suit all teams. Going to be interesting.

And let's be honest, he's had 3 seasons and gets banged up a lot of the time. I know he's been amazing in big games but he's really still in the 'potential' category. 

I actually read Dez Bryant was calling for him to retract the trade request because he's probably not going to find a better offense fit than Kyle's scheme. Don't know, could be a week 4 trade for cut price the way it's going.

Guy at work reckons he will sit the season. I hope he doesn’t for the games sake, for the Rams sake I hope he retires 😂

Des Bryant speaks well there, niners are prob the best fit for him.

Rams/Cowboys set for a regular season game in Sydney in 2024

If they held the match on the same weekend as the Everest (mid October) that would be a decent weekend away!

The game starting at 12.30pm AEDT would be 8.30pm on the East Coast of the USA ... 5.30pm on the West Coast (once daylight saving time is operating here in Oz)

So Saturday Night Football beamed in from Australia ... or Sunday Night Football if they held the game on the Monday of the NSW Labour Day weekend (early October)

Maybe late December could fit ... they traditionally play a few NFL Saturday night games post the College Saturday schedule in late December

Whichever way they do it tickets to the game will be hard to get hold of!

And expensive. But I’m going to start saving now 😂

It will essentially be like having two Superbowl mornings in one year, more than happy with that!

@Gorgoroth@layzie@Dee Zephyr@Go the Biff@Clintosaurus  @JV7@DeeSpencer@Dappa Dan@titan_uranus@DemonDave@BDA

The practice games have started already!

Not that the result means much but the Jags went down to the Raiders on Friday

There's a full list of games next weekend including the Packers @ 49ers on Saturday ... 10.30am Oz time

If you've got the ESPN app, you'll find all the scheduled games

If I get a chance I'll try and find what the main talking points are going into the new season (apart from the latest installment of the Tom Brady show!)

Season proper kicks off on Friday Sept 9th (Bills @ Rams)

Happy to run with the tipping comp again.  We should get enough starters

Let's be honest, we could use a slight distraction right now.

No sweat layz, we'll beat the Blues next week and then our destiny will be in our own hands (which includes playing for a top 4 berth with a possible re-match against the Pies or Cats first up in the finals)

You've got to love a challenge and we'll be up for that challenge

The next win changes everything and we will bounce back ... the lads will be smarting about last night's result

You know what I want Macca? I want MFC to study the twist of fate manual of Gorg's Rams in 2021 eg Lose twice in the season to their bitter enemies,  then play them again in a final and beat them where it matters making Collingwood fans not eat, but choke on the biggest humble pie ever baked thus winning the war in the long run. I'm tired of black and white prevailing over red and blue. It's like Darth Vader always winning.

Looking forward to more TB12. Julio will work wonders.

Good outcomes don't come easy, layz

Might be just the wake up call we needed, losing last night.  We now know what's required to go deep in September.  It's crystal clear and there are no excuses.  If we were getting ahead of ourselves, that thinking will have disappeared

In an odd way, Ed's words have made sure that we now need to clam up and just get the job done.  I can see the team becoming totally focused now with no distractions

As for Collingwood, they are a dangrous opponent and it will be a challenge to beat them next time.  They are very efficient when they have the ball and they stifle the opposition when the opposition have the ball.  Eventually they win the ball back and they are off

They have close wins and they lose many of the stat categories but their efficiency wins out.  They don't waste their opportunities.  And they don't give up

Every time they win the ball back they've got a plan to score with that opportunity

A bit like when Tom Brady has the ball in his hands ... efficiency is the forte

Our coaching staff can learn from how the Pies play ... we need to be more efficient and not waste possessions

So we learn from the loss so it's not a total disaster (much like the Cats have learnt from their PF loss to us)

We're still in the game and we've still got the game to win big

Oh and @layzie

The last 15 times we've met the Pies in a final we've prevailed 14 times

We own them in September!

Don't forget your tips you blokes!

Season start has snuck up on us but we do it all again beginning Friday ... Bills @ Rams

@DeeSpencer@Go the Biff@JV7@layzie@Gorgoroth@Dee Zephyr@BDA@Clintosaurus@titan_uranus@DemonDave @Dappa Dan

The reigning champion is 'Go the BIff'

Same points system as in previous years so with 3 road winners correctly tipped (from 3 tips), points are gained!

With one added on exception ...

A bonus point can be gained if you are the only successful tipster in any given week.  This is to encourage some left-field tipping and also serves as a way of catching the leaders (or streeting the field!)

Points on offer this season

Weeks 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16 & 17 offer 2 points for the weekly winners

Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 & 14 - 1 point only

Week 18 - 3 points

So 2 big points on offer for week 1 😏

I'll post up the games soon enough but you'll find the schedule on the ESPN app

New participants are welcome to join in ... it's as simple as just naming 3 road teams.  But gaining points isn't an easy task as we've all found out over the years!

Week 1 of the tipping comp kicks off with 2 points up for grabs (plus a bonus point if you are the only successful tipster for the week) Good luck!

Russell Wilson renews acquaintances with his former teammates in week 1!!  MNF no less

There are some other good match-ups in week 1

As in most years there are sure to be 4 or 5 teams that will improve and probably just as many who will fall away 

Packers @ Minnesota, KC @ Arizona, Tampa @ Dallas (SNF) are 3 games to look out for

As well as Friday's match ... Bills @ Rams

In the early Sunday timeslot, the 49ers @ Chicago is another interesting game

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
