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...

    • The Boro are unbeaten in the last 4 games & on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Reading travel to South Wales to take on recently relegated Cardiff City who sit below the Boro in the championship table on goal difference, there record is the same as the Boro’s so far, played 7, won 2, drew 3, lost 2 One of the bookies favourites to return to the PL Cardiff have found it anything but easy, they’ve had a busy summer in the transfer market bringing in up to 10 players, including our very own Aden Flint a big money transfer Cardiff are without a win in the last 3 games after starting the season with 2 wins & a draw from their opening 3 home fixtures, this will be another testing time for team  But its about the Boro, how Jonathan Woodgate sets us up, formation we play too, Luton & Bristol City away we played fast attacking football though & IMHO, a win was what we deserved, a draw is what we got in both games Will Woodgate to stick with the team that started against Reading?  Will Woodgate keep with Shotton, or bring in Ayala to partner Dael Fry?
