Quote from: Paper*Boy on September 14, 2015, 09:50:44 PMHe fielded the first punt - it was shorter than it looked, he dove for it and fumbled it, recovered by Minnesota
Quote from: eddie dean on September 14, 2015, 09:56:09 PM... The special teams plays have been quite eventful so far.
Quote from: eddie dean on September 13, 2015, 12:38:41 AMThat sucks. Curtis said he will look into it. He didn't see a setting which forbids ppl from joining late. Did you use the correct password? bellgabI'm not sure what else to tell you. If it doesn't let you join, it's probably an ESPN rule. Will it let you join any other pools, or is the issue exclusive to ours?
Quote from: jazmunda on September 15, 2015, 06:37:57 AMChalk it up to nerves and the fact that he has come from a low skilled game in Rugby. If he was an Aussie Rules footballer he would not have misjudged nor dropped the ball. Fucking New South Welshmen (Sydney). That would not have happened to a Victorian (Melbourne).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_regional_rivalries
Quote from: Paper*Boy on September 15, 2015, 07:10:00 AMI chalk it up to him being new to the game and not fielding enough punts to instinctively know what to do in every situation through repetition. These other guys have been playing since PeeWee Football. He had a nice run, a nice catch, and looks good, I really think he will be a very good player.The 49ers exceeded everyone's expectations and we're all feeling a bit relieved - I know I am. Next week at Pittsburgh will be a tougher test
Quote from: jazmunda on September 15, 2015, 07:29:49 AMPerhaps the flight of the ball and hang time of an American football is different to a rugby or Aussie Rules Football but catching the ball in the Australian codes is basic stuff that athletes like Hayne should do with their eyes closed. I believe an American football is a lot lighter. That might account for the ball dropping shorter than expected...
Quote from: jazmunda on September 15, 2015, 07:29:49 AM... American ... ball dropping shorter than expected...... he's not used to the pussy padding ...I'm glad they won and I thought they looked great in black.
Quote from: pate on September 15, 2015, 08:52:06 AMWith some selective (I only read the word "selective" in the Kiwi accent) editing, I must agree.AFL is something else, I must say. No Shoulder Pads etc... Not that there is anything wrong with a man wearing a pad. We are in the 21st century after all.
Quote from: jazmunda on September 15, 2015, 08:54:32 AM... Fucking oath ...
Quote from: jazmunda on September 15, 2015, 09:00:31 AMYes Aussie Rules is a real man's sport. http://youtu.be/uPIQ7vLJYIA

Quote from: eddie dean on September 15, 2015, 10:40:58 AMI was feeling pretty damn good about my pool picks until going 0 for 2 on Mon night. Crazy. You never know what's going to happen. That's why I love this game!
Quote from: chefist on September 15, 2015, 10:39:54 AMI like the new 33 yard extra point kick rule. The kicker for the Texans already missed one. I think this rule change will impact some important games in the future!
Quote from: eddie dean on September 15, 2015, 10:43:41 AMLast season only a handfull of missed extra points all season. This year, in week 1, there were 4 missed extra pts.

Quote from: Rix Gins on September 15, 2015, 02:35:17 PMAs do I. But what I don't like are the camera lenses used to cover said kicks. They make the goal post look like it's been placed in the next city over. Yeah...I exaggerate, but still it bugs me a bit.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on September 15, 2015, 02:05:57 PM I've seen this movie in '99 in his last year with the Pats. Pete Carroll has either lost his team or is a cunt hair away from it. Wouldn't be shocked by a 8-8 finish and no playoffs. That team has too many shitbags and Marshawn Lynch is a cancer beyond belief.
Quote from: eddie dean on September 16, 2015, 09:09:54 AM... I gotta say Eddie, the Rams upset thrilled me beyond belief, even more so because I picked the rams as my upset special of the week. I see you and P*B picked the upset as well. Nice!
