No more Redskins!

Could be no more Dan Snyder by the sounds of things in the media today - a lot of bad stories are about to come out about him that will result in him having to sell the team.

FOOTBALL!

CEH looks like the real deal for KC, as if their offense needed any more dynamic threats. Struggled to punch it in from the 1 yard line a couple of times though. Think he had like 5 goes and couldn't get it done which might hurt him in future.

Predictions for NFL then. Looks a two horse race in AFC between Chiefs and Ravens. I'm gonna go with Ravens. NFC is a minefield. I'll go for the Saints with Brees likely in his last year. Ravens win the lot.

Cowboys blew a chance to level the game with a field goal in the fourth quarter by going for it on fourth down instead. They went on to lose the game by 3 points.

Not taking the FG isn't what cost them the game. Some awful play calling and a bullshit OPI call on Gallup on the final series did. Ramsey flopped for it like he was in the NBA.

Watched a decent bit of the redzone coverage last night.  The one the lad didn't catch for the Lions to win it was horrific.

Kittle's knee went the wrong direction and still came out for the 2nd half.  I'd be amazed if there isn't damage there.

Clippers out to the Nuggets...you would have to think itís Lebrons title now. Not enough scorers left in the teams. Murray and Jokic would need to score over 70 between them, probably more to stand a chance. Donít see enough in the East to put up a fight.

Don't write off Miami ... they are scorcing hot at the moment.

Week 1 was relatively quiet but week 2 has been awful. Players haven't had a proper preseason...this was bound to happen.

Gayle Sayers, The Kansas Comet, running back for Chicago Bears passed at the age of 77.

If you never seen the movie Brian's Song, watch it!

It is about the relationship between Bear's teammates Brian Piccolo and Gayle Sayers during the 60's in the turbulent race segregration of the US.
Warning it is a tear jerker.

Sad news. A legend. Haven't seen the movie but am familiar with the story.
