    Hall of Fame game?

    It was much better when it was the College all Americans against the runner up from the previous Super Bowl.........
    Now......On par with a decent high school effort..............

    Preseason football is a poor substitute for the real thing.




    And yet it still beats about 90% of the other televised sports out there on their best day. :D

    I'm thinking about buying a TV antenna to watch the game tonight. It's on NBC, right? I do not want to spend $$$ on ATT U-Verse this season just to get ESPN and NFL Network -- it's just too fucking expensive, which kills me. This will be the first season since 1970 I haven't watched Monday Night Football.

    If you can avoid the score -- I can give you like 100x ways to DL everything and burn it for yourself in HD. And any game.

    Or stream it as it happens. There's ways now obviously where you can run your devices to a TV with a monitor and/or HD wire.

    I'll be watching!...even though it's inconsequential preseason Hall of Fame nonsense.
    Gets me ready for the all day affair that is Sundays during the regular season. :cheer2:
    Warm up. I love me some football season.

    And Big Brother is on too, so I'll be flipping back and forth. :p

    I'm also looking forward to this. Fuck baseball.


    Edit: The only good thing about baseball is that it gets Joe Buck away from calling football games in October.

    Same! I love football season, though I know very little about football. Actually, I just love football Sunday and Peyton Manning. :D

    I've never been more sure than now that the NFL season is waaayyy too fast and short.

    It feels like the Patriots vs Seahawks Super Bowl was like 5 years ago. With the rise fantasy football and crazy gambling - they need to add either more games, or bye weeks for divisions, or BOTH!?!? Cutting back on pre-season bullshit is another way. This, so the Super Bowl could even be played on President's Day weekend.

    Unless it's a really big game.....God, Baby Jesus hear my prayer......Pats/Colts will be a must see.......I listen to the Fox network on radio "Around the League"
    Coverage where they drop in on games through out the day......And I DVR the NFL network's Game highlights show.....Way better than ESPN's.........
    And watch it Monday morning while I do mundane shit like laundry and housework......Keeps you in touch and up to speed with shit.......

    I was raised with lots of boy cousins who trained me to love football. Rules, strategy and all.
    I know lots about football! Until it comes to the players....I can't keep up with all the names and positions they play.
    Peyton is in Denver now right? :D

    My 11 year old now knows more about football than I do.
    I guess I still have the girl gene that prevents me from getting TOO knowledgeable.

    He is indeed! Lookit this picture they use for him on game day. It's tragic and makes him look like he goes around sniffing bicycle seats:

    It's cool that you know so much about the game. I would like to know more but I feel, as someone who knows very little about it, discussing the ins and outs with people who know a ton about it leads to impatience and irritation for the latter so I just make chili and chicken wings all morning and have some cocktails during the games. :cool:

    I don't think Brady is going anywhere......The judge that has landed this told both sides.....Settle or else.....And that he will hand down his ruling before Sept.
    And those that have reviewed the case HE has......Say it doesn't look good for the League......Brady most likely will pay a fine and no games lost......
