I'm going to need to find somewhere to stream this I think...
Might be something to attempt to learn what they are doing.

Edit: Just read that first post a bit more... so 7 are showing games now? Not just the Superbowl?

Yeah 7 have been showing games for a couple of years, last year was kinda crap, they paid big money for the rights to every 49ers game because that's where Jarred Hayne was playing, but they were basically the Brisbane Lions of the NFL last season and Hayne only played like 8 games.

If you can find a couple of games to watch on YouTube or somewhere I find its pretty easy to pick up, its a lot more of a stop/start game compared to AFL or NRL. So you do have some time to be like WTF just happened and then make sense of it.

I backed the Patriots back in 2002, because that years Superbowl was the first game I watched and The Patriots sounded like a better name then The Rams. They then went on to win that game which was a bonus.

I go for the Coyotes in NHL, which are also from Arizona, so that's where I'm leaning too

Yeah supporting New England is why I go for the Bruins and Celtics the few times I do watch NBA and NHL, going to try to get into those a bit more this year. It just made round 1 more interesting!

Now I need to find a Dolphins fan because thats the classic Patriots rival

I follow the Atlanta Falcons. I don't really know who's good and who's not and don't really follow it all that much. But I do enjoy watching it and playing the games. I've entered the tipping but can't guarantee that i'll keep it up :P

one downside to this is I don't get to watch any games live so I have to avoid checking my tips until after the Pats play

Pretty solid tipping around the board, Disco coming in fresh after not being in on the AFL tipping and picking up second place on the ladder

Patriot managed to squeeze out a close win without Brady who is out for another 3 weeks cause of that deflate gate bullshit.



week 2 aussie broadcast:

and the week 2 fixtures

It was a good week 3 for me personally as the Patriots beat the Texans 27-0, tips not so much I've dropped to 3rd. Disruptor in the lead coming into week 4, I keep tipping the Carolina Panthers for some reason and I need to stop doing that.

Week 3 highlights


Week 4 TV broadcasts
Image

Vikings vs Giants game should be good, Arizona will have a tough fight against the LA Rams but it is at home for them

This weeks picks are going to be from Bleacher Report
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2665 ... l-schedule

One week I'm going to run a simulation of the week on Madden 16 on my PS4

and Disco reclaims first place in the tipping comp!



I started out horribly, backing the terribly dressed Miami Dolphins, who then went on to get smashed by the Bengals, New England couldn't even score a point against the Bills, apart from that every pick I got wrong was 3 points or under difference in scores so I'm pretty happy with how the rest of the week went

Image

No patriots game on tv again and no places have made their week 5 picks yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing the Cardinals flog Jaryd Haynes old team the 49ners and will probably watch the Panters vs Buccaneers game as well but I don't know who I'm backing for that one.
