Yes, just in the Eticketing queue now. Really hoping that all the tickets aren't already taken by bots by the time my turn comes!

Got a final small segment to go but been there for nearly 20 mins 

 

The Bots have been a massive problem for NFL UK

Did you manage to get one?

 

I'm raging tbh. I'm in Vegas on holiday, but set the alarm for 1:55am so I could join the queue at 2am sharp (10am UK time). I had a final small segment to go for absolutely ages, but have now noticed on the NFL UK forum that posters are saying they're sold out now. It also seems from reading the forum that people who were joining the queue later or who were refreshing their web pages were getting through ahead of those who stayed in the queue!

 

Absolutely gutted tbh, I saw the ST as my best chance of seeing the Bears for the first time live. Of course, there's already loads up on Stubhub but it's a moral quandary as to whether to support the scalping industry.

Usual shit show with NFL UK. Every year they seem to **** it up and shaft the so called loyal fan base. 

 

They don’t deserve a franchise here and Certainly wouldn’t be able to run any of that side of the business. Tickets going for hundred of pounds on the usual sites and thousands of st holders left with nothing.

 

Neil Reynolds will Trott out his usual apology later and they will all blame someone else.

Got three tickets about five rows from the back in the upper section (no T Shirt cannon is going to reach me!)

 

NFL UK said queuing before wont make a difference and everyone needs to refresh at 10am. My mate was on the site at 8.50 and did not refresh, had his tickets by 10.15

 

usual resale sites charging 5 times face value but they never try to fix it

I bit the bullet and paid for 2 of the NFL players club tickets for the wife and me. With travel and accommodation it's going to be an expensive 24 hours, an overtime win (while we're getting all the free booze) would go down nicely to maximise value!

Wanting tickets for the Texans match. General sale 10am on Tuesday, how likely am I to get a block of 4 tickets together? Not fussed where, probably either on halfway or in end zone.

Can't decide which game to get tickets for, none are appealing but missed out last year due to league cup and don't want to again.

Got the Kickback crown to defend, when's the ol' Fleaflicker starting up again? Will need to start the mock drafts soon to get in the groove.

Can't wait for the draft. I seem to be doing better at the kickback rather than the dynasty. Two semis in two years

What an awful outcome into the Hill situation. Sad his ex can’t do the right thing and tell them the truth and have his career rightly ended.

 

Hope he gets utterly smashed this season.

Eric Dickerson and some other Hall of Fame inductees are planning to boycott the Canton ceremony. 

 

Dickerson told TMZ last September what he thought every player deserved

"If it was up to me, I think every Hall of Famer would get about $300,000 a year," he said at the time. "I think that would be a proper number." 

Additionally, Dickerson proposed health insurance and a better pension for all players.

 

The guy is a throbber, didn’t like him anyway, but this has confirmed his first class knob status for me.

Very true, but as far as the Kickback IDP dynasty league goes he's my scumbag since everyone thought he'd be suspended for half the season!

Lions have signed Daniels.

 

Frightening front 3 in Daniels, Snacks and Flowers. That's before we even get to Robinson, Hand and Okwara. Building a proper good D.

Anybody done any interesting bets for the upcoming season

skybet allowing you to bet on where you think a team will finish in their division

 

Apart from my 28/1 bet on the Steelers to win the Super Bowl I have a fun wee acca on all the divisions to keep me interested

 

afc east Dolphins to finish bottom ... 8/15

afc north Bengals to finish bottom ... 4/7

afc west Chiefs to win Division ... 8/13

afc south Colts to win Division ... 11/10

nfc east Giants to finish bottom ... 8/11

nfc north Lions to finish bottom ... 8/11

nfc west Rams to win Division ... 1/2

nfc south Saints to win Division ... 1/2

 

first time I can recall any of the bookies giving prices on teams finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd or bottom of their Division.

Can anyone point me in the direction of where’s best to join a fantasy league for this season? And does it go in a draft format or is there any that you can make up teams based on a budget, eg like the English Premier League fantasy teams? Cheers

Giants ****ed with their receivers dropping like flies.

 

Ive got season bets. Similar to yours with a lot of dead cert teams to finish bottom. Only risky one is there broncos. Think the raiders will just shade them.

Aaa did the camp injuries start to pick up. Could be a bad one for Green.

 

Did someone not just trade him in the Fleaflicker league? Tyler Boyd stock just shot up.

Don't read if you've not seen the latest season of Last Chance U, but article in the spoiler below is about the head coach of ICC (seasons 3 and 4). Loved season 4 as much as the previous ones, great show that is tragic in so many ways. Bonus episode from season 4 that catches up on where players are from previous seasons is a good watch too.

Fleaflicker has public leagues that you can just join, few different formats but all will draft so each player can only be in one team.

Gutted Ronald Ollie got cut. Would have been a smashing story for him to have made it in the league.

 

Hopefully makes a training squad.

The one thing that was touched on the bonus episode of last chance U that I don't understand is the lack of a second league in America. The place is frigging huge and surely there's commercial benefits there for an NFL2/Reserve league or what about like the NBA and have a summer league with prospects and draft picks?

Seems like every year folk just tip the Packers just because they’ve got Rodgers. My wife agrees with you on Century Link.
