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!

I’m in. Been keen as for the season to start.

Stafford already banged up, Van Jefferson out for a few weeks but keen as to see Allen Robinson play alongside Coop. 
Always some late big moves coming into the season. Should be fun!

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!

Alright everyone, 2022 season begins. Get ready for the highs and the lows. Really hoping this is the year I can finish on the Illustrious DL NFL tipping podium. Always remember to tip responsibly!

Saints, Ravens, Colts

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

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
