Predictably I follow the Chicago Bears, made the playoffs after barren few seasons. Reckon we will do the same again this year despite inexplicably trading away Jordan Howard.

I am a buffalo Bills fan. Fell in love with them over a decade ago somehow, they weren't even very good then.

Very excited for this season, especially with Josh Allen, the sexiest man in shorts.

I’m a Panthers man myself as have some family there. Was fairly into it 2013-2017 but my interest has waned last couple years. Might start watching it more this year. My brother is really into it. He probably knows more about the Bucaneers (his team)/NFL than the boro/championship so I’m always kinda up to date with what’s going on through him.

Your brother sounds like a reasonable man ? 

Must be fun for you two to watch the division Derbys ?

Big Steelers fan due to my parents living in Pittsburgh and me being born there. Going to be a weird year this year as we transition away from Le’veon Bell and Antonio Brown.

At least you ditched the Antonio brown circus. Think that was a great move.

It’s a great move in terms of attitudes and egos but he’s also the best WR in the NFL for the last 4 or 5 seasons. Smith Schuster looks great but was he profiting from teams doubling AB or is he legitimately that good? We’ll see this year.

Dolphins fan since the Dan Marino days, expecting something close to 0-16 next season!

I dont know a great amount about NFL i think recently I have began to grasp the rules which makes it easier to follow. The team I go for are the Packers although that is predominantly down to liking the colour green. I was hoping Wade would make the cut after a promising moments in the pre season though.

I'm more into the NHL though and watch a fair bit of that as you get free streams on betting sites. Plus I enjoy watching Billingham Stars which is a nice introduction to ice hockey for anyone fancying giving it a watch. My team there are the Philadelphia Flyers.

Yes granted, but I suppose the argument is that ability worth all the drama in the dressing room? I'd argue probably not. I'll take the slightly less talented WR who has his head screwed on properly over AB every day.

He made the practice squad, so he basically now sits for a year and learns the ropes and goes again next year. If he can get even 1 season as an NFL running back that would be a huge success for him, especially at 28 already, typically RBs don't have a massive shelf life.

As for the NHL, don't worry, I follow that too ? and my local team are the Guildford Flames. My NHL team are the Vancouver Canucks.

Green Bay Packers, I work for a US corporation who's Head quarter's are near Green Bay, got a guided tour a few years back, 50 year waiting list for a season ticket, they get passed down within families so never become generally available.

Imagine that at Boro!

Maybe it is just me, but the way they have treated Kaepernick has tainted the whole thing....some of our England team didn't sing the National Anthem....never got them kicked out of the League...

    • It's a shame that the relegation battle has been the only interesting thing in the PL for months now. I'm hoping for Villa, Bournemouth and Burnley to go down, but I expect Norwich will instead of one of them.
    • Fry for 15 million is probably the right price no disputing that. But ending up essentially paying 6-8 million for Gibson, wages aside, I have a problem with he'd do a decent job on the pitch no doubt but at a time where we are reigning in spending (rightly in my opinion) I don't see why we need a 6-8 million pound player especially at CB right now we aren't rounding up the promotion band and moving for Bolasies/Ritchies anymore I just put a Gibson move in that bracket to be honest the impact on the team minimal, relative cost high and feels like we'd be back to square 1 I'd rather see us bank the cash for a couple of years at most spend 3 million on 1 player if he's key. If we didn't give a f about finances as fans getting Gibson back would be universally welcomed the problem is I've been told to care repeatedly over the years and I hated paying 7 million for Flint, hated the 6 million pound Joe Bryan bids as well paying that money for defenders in this league is just burning money in my opinion. I want prudence from us financially that's all, we preach it as a club sometimes then seem to lose our minds whether it's trying for Besic last year for 6 million or Gibson now I'm very sceptical as a club we should be paying those kind of fees whilst we're in this division that's a main part of my problem even if it's technically a 'write off' we're losing a guaranteed 7 figure income off the books to bring him and whatever wage he's on back it seems out of whack with our priorities to me.
    • You make it sound too easy 😋 I genuinly doubt Ayala, Clayton and Howson had any decent interest that would promt us to sell. Clayton I think we'd have sold fairly cheaply. I think the players haven't been willing to just sign the first reduced contract we offered and probably wants to see how things developed and whether any teams would show interest. We can't force them to sign lesser contracts and we can't make other teams buy them. The offers would have to make sense too. It would probably be better to just let Ayalas contract run down than sell him for less than a million last summer.
    • But we knew there contract were running down before this season started and talks with these players regarding contracts should have been held pre season and those who wouldn't sign new deals should have been moved on in the summer, ok I agree moving on Shotton, Gestede and Johnson was tried but Clayton, Howson and in particular Ayala would of still commanded half decent fees
    • Thats a bit harsh. You can only sell if there is interest and we can't just offer the players the same terms. Of the players out of contract I'm only interested in keeping Ayala and Howson anyway if they agree to reduced terms in line with the financial realities. The rest aren't really good enough and wouldn't ever command a decent fee. I'm sure we would have gladly sold players like Clayton, Gestede and Johnson in the summer if any other teams wanted them.
