ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 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 : (26 March 2015 - 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 : (26 March 2015 - 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.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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

azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:12 PM) Soooo has anyone had any experience with the new Sling Tv?
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:13 PM) $20 a month gets you ESPN and 15 other channels.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:18 PM) All streamed.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:58 PM) I'm a fan of the apple tv though. I just use a clients fios tv account to access the different services like watch espn
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) yep need an account
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:11 PM) nbc sports app also works really well I airplay that to the appletv
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) Alright signed up for the sling TV bit.

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna

My Fantasy Football League Is Today!

I have my local FFl draft at two today, so I'll be posting the results either early tomorrow (dark outside early) or midday. There is a poker tournament afterwards, so who knows when things will wrap up. I also have an on-line draft tomorrow, so even I might be worn out of FF by the end of the weekend.

Anyways, I have Willis McGahee (yes, of the Bills) as my keeper and I have the first pick in the draft, which I am planning on using on Kevin Jones. After that, who knows?

Wish me luck (as if anyone reads this board, but still).

KEvin Jones? Yes he's good but don't you think you could do better? In fantasy you should always have at least one dominant player, preferably a QB but a RB is probably best. Kevin Jones may not have the receiving yards necessary to be a dominant fantasy running back. The Lions have too many good receivers for me to foresee Jones getting alot of catches.
I changed my name, but I dont remember what it was... if anyone remembers please let me know.

sit on jones. who knows, he might slip to your second pick (probably not) LT is the hands down first pick for me and most of the people i know. jones wont have the recieving yards LT is gonna have and the rushing yards and tds will be somewhere close with LT having a little more of each. you can't go wrong with him.

Guys..it's a keeper league, meaning someone already has LT and therefore a player of kevin jones' caliber is going to be a solid pick with the first of the draft. Good luck a1!

Yeah, LT was kept, so I didn't really get a shot at him. But thanks for the ideas...

Anyway, here is my team, in order that I drafted it. The format is 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1flex(RB or WR), K, Def, TEs count as WRs. I had the first pick, so after the initial player I was choosing two at a time:

Keeper-Willis McGahee
1-Kevin Jones
2-Curtis Martin
3-JJ Arrington
4-Marc Bulger
5-Jimmy Smith
6-Lee Evans
7-Deion Branch
8-Mushin Muhammad
9-Santana Moss
10-Matt Stover
11-Lions Def/KR
12-Paul Edinger
13-Steve McNair
14-Jaguars Defense/KR

Curtis Martin fell all the way down the board to me with the 19th pick, which means 28 players were gone before him. He was the 19th RB taken and, get this, I was actually laughed at for taking him! The league's leading rusher, and only two of the other owners though I got a steal.

Bulger was the third highest scoring QB in our league last year, but I got him after eight others were off the board. I wasn't going to take a QB because my league usually lets a really good one fall into the late rounds (last year I had Plummer and Leftwich, both of whom outperformed a lot of other owners' starter), but I couldn't pass on a guy who could finish the season as the top QB.

My plan is to start McGahee, Jones, and Martin every week and move receivers around as necessary. But I really like Smith and Evans, and the other three guys are all starters who could have good games through out the year.

All in all I got better than I thought I would. No way did I think I could get Martin as my third back, nor did I think I would land Bulger after the 3rd round. I personally think I am one of the elite teams in the league, but we'll have to see. What do you all say?

a1 you're a savvy drafter. You don't go for names which shows an obvious wealth of football knowledge. i think your team is very good, but we dont know the rest of your league so that is all relative. Not that you need it but here's my advice... stay on top of your FA and look for a steal there. All my leagues are won because I was smart enough to pick up a surprise stud after a few weeks.

EMoulds
MRobinson

KCollins

SJanikowski

EaglesD

The other five teams aren't all that bad, but the owners made some bad mistakes. One team took Gates as it's number one receiver, one took TO as it's number one and then waited until all other teams had four RBs to draft his reserves so he wound up with Faulk and Ricky Williams. The other three just have really questionable RBs that are either really injury prone, are set to split carries with another good back, or are already back ups. My favorite is the second team. If Bell gets the majority of the carries he has a great set of backs and receivers.

I tried to draft really solid, reliable guys this year. I got away from that in the last one and my whole team bombed from the start.

team #2 if definately the favorite IMO in that group. Strong team top to bottom sans the D. The Bengals and the Cowboys are not very good at all for a D. Maybe he'll get lucky or make a trade to improve that area. I think you can hold your own until the end where if you're doing a playoff you can win by simply having a few good weeks in a row.

Yeah, he is a Cowboys and Bengals fan. Plus he drafted them after about a dozen Defs were off the board so he didn't really have a lot to choose from.


On a unrelated note, I was supposed to be in a FoxFantasy draft right now and I couldn't get into the draft room, just kept saying it couldn't load. I know at least some of the other owners could get in, so I'm not sure what the problem was. The whole site was down for almost a week earlier, so I am washing my hands with Foxfantasy.

You're only slight weakness is probably in the WR department where you failed to get a top 10 wide-out imo..but since you start 3 RB's, you should be fine. I might have taken a WR where you took JJ, otherwise solid draft.

Yeah, I sacrificed starting receiver quality for being able to start three RBs every game. I didn't want to end up with an iffy 4th back as I was commited to the RB flex position.

Still, I really like the depth of my receivers. I think I have better 3rd-5th receivers than several of the other teams. Also, I really like Smith and the Jags offense this year, so he was by far my favorite receiver at that point. I almost got Steve Smith, but he was taken one spot before me.

I was worried I might catch some gruff for having so many Patriots and Bills on my team, whew!

I'll take Bills or Pats, but there sure as heck aren't going to be any Dolphins on my team...and not just because they aren't worth drafting.

Good luck with that draft, $500! Wow.
