Quote from: jazmunda on September 13, 2015, 03:16:01 PMESPN here has been advertising that game on all the other major cable stations here. The main feature of the ads has obviously been Hayne and his highlights so far. You have to understand that this type of advertising for an NFL game never occurs and is unprecedented here. The game is live on ESPN at midday here and then repeated that night in prime time. This also never happens save for the Super Bowl.
Quote from: jazmunda on September 13, 2015, 03:47:35 PMHaving said all that I doubt whether the average Aussie will be slitting his wrists if he doesn't play. The only people sweating it would be the ESPN Asia Pacific (as I doubt there is an Aussie division) execs who have probably conned advertisers to pay more for a midday timeslot for an NFL game.If he does play this week it will be splashed all across our news even if he just looks pretty on the bench.

Quote from: Eddie Coyle on September 13, 2015, 09:54:35 PM I want the world to end on Sept 23, just for the promise of never seeing another Draft Kings commercial ever again.
Quote from: albrecht on September 13, 2015, 09:58:40 PMI second that. It is friggin' EVERYWHERE, even pop-up ads on phone/computer not just commercials on tv/radio. I still don't quite understand how this thing is suddenly legal everywhere but simply placing a bet isn't (in most places.)
Quote from: coaster on September 13, 2015, 10:31:14 PMThat draft kings commercial guy who grabs his face and shoves his fingers in his mouth..ugh. they should call it douche kings.
Quote from: Paper*Boy on September 13, 2015, 10:25:45 PMJust another advantage to not actually watching the games.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on September 13, 2015, 10:52:28 PM The commercial free Red Zone channel is a godsend. What a difference it makes.
Quote from: eddie dean on September 13, 2015, 11:02:56 PMGood question. I'd say Oak could be in the running. QB1 D. Carr got hurt by trying to stiff arm a linebacker. IDK how long he will be out, but it doesn't look good for the Raiders this season.
Quote from: Paper*Boy on September 13, 2015, 11:12:56 PMThe Raiders could do worse than backup QB McGloin. He started some games for them in 2013 and knows the system - well, they have a new coach and new system, but he knows it and the offense as well as anyone.I don't think Garrett Gilbert (on the practice squad) is going to be helpful, let's see who else is out there. What's Michael Vick doing these days? Who might be available in a trade?
Quote from: TigerLily on September 14, 2015, 12:37:42 AMOverall, great week 1 of football. I think just about every game went the way I wanted or at least expected. I'm glad to see Seattle is not infallible, and once again it was the Rams who showed them up. And nice to see some things never change like the dependable suckiness of Oakland and Tampa Bay. One more game to go tomorrow. Boot and rally!
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on September 13, 2015, 08:24:47 PM Jax looked bad today...and still not the worst NFL team in Florida.
Quote from: onan on September 14, 2015, 06:20:25 AMThat may be true, but how does the bench look?
Quote from: eddie dean on September 13, 2015, 11:11:34 PMit's beautiful isn't it? As long as they don't cut to HD video of this guy too often:I'd rather sit through a Draft Kings commercial
Quote from: eddie dean on September 14, 2015, 12:56:37 AMLike your avatar. Is that Anderson?The Den. O didn't look sharp at all. I hope it's simply a matter of learning the new system and adjusting.
Quote from: eddie dean on September 14, 2015, 08:24:31 PM the Niners home jerseys are black this year? It's an odd look.
Quote from: Paper*Boy on September 14, 2015, 09:09:37 PMBlack jerseys just for this game.See Hayne drop that punt?, that's why he needs more seasoning - if you aren't going to catch it for sure, get the hell away from it
Quote from: eddie dean on September 14, 2015, 09:37:06 PM... I didn't realize he dressed out for the game until I saw Hayne take a carry on offence...
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
