ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.

RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:59 AM) Smeds, where did you get your tickets?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!

ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

NFL Europe is a farm system for talent that doesnt make the NFL out of college and for international athletes to try to break into the NFL. The NFL is a on a different level. They wouldn't compete against NFL teams

It's the NFL's version of MLB's Minor League. Just like stated, it's a farm to essentially try and raise talent that just isn't at NFL level yet.

Nah. Its a minor league system really. Now if they were to make thier own leagues and started developing players and such, THEN they could make a serious run and we could quite possible see football become an olympic sport. But don't bet on either, soccer is too big over there and football would die to fast.

NFL Europe will never be on a par with the NFL and will remain a feeder league. The league has been in decline the last few years with teams in London, Scotland and Barcelona folding over the last decade and only 6 teams remain - 5 in Germany and 1 in Holland. It isn't that popular around Europe and the crowds in Germany and Holland are relatively modest.
It is league where the NFL develops talent and also where European, Asian and Mexican players showcase their skills. However the non-American players find it hard to get into the NFL as they aren't connected to any team. The league has taken a step to get these players into the NFL by allocating I think 8 a season to practice squads around the league and they have to remain on them for the whole season.
Next year a regular season game should be coming to Europe - either in London or Germany which will no doubt raise the profile of the game but it is still very much a minority sport over here. The regular season game will definitely sell out but interest in the game won't propel the sport to a level where millions of kids start playing it and the only way NFLE becomes on a par with the NFL is if millions of kids take it up.

Teams send over mainly 5th to 7th round picks, practice squad guys and street FAs that went undrafted the previous year (training camp fodder basically). Last year the biggest name to go over was Drew Henson but he had played less football in the pros than Smith.

IMO it can be a useful tool and I'd like to see more Jets sent over as in the past KC have had guys come back from NFLE and be successful in the pros such as Dante Hall. It has been a good place in the past to develop OLine talent too.

NFLE is a 10 game season therefore the chances of injury are great and it would also mean he wouldn't be in proper shape for training camp due to the wear and tear he would suffer.
