If you actually ever gave it a legitimate chance I'm sure you'd fall in love too. There's so much strategy and nuance to the game that makes it incredibly exciting to watch.

Once you get your head around the fact that 60 minutes of game play can take up to 3 hours, then it's grand.

But yeah, I think you may genuinely be the worst team to ever grace the NFL. I don't even remember the 0-16 Browns or Lions looking that bereft of ability.

Thanks for the support, yeah its gonna be a grim season! 

It looks like a full on tank this season, even more so with the trade of Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers. Apparently the plan is to draft Tua Tagovailoa the quarter back from Alabama but we've also got 3 first round picks in next years draft, multiple picks in other rounds and ton of money available in free agency. 

If Miami had a history of drafting and recruiting well I'd be quite excited but it's the complete opposite. The whole tanking thing doesn't really feel right either. 

As a neutral I'm looking forward to Kansas vs Baltimore this week.

Haha yeah, the concept of a tank is fine, if you can trust your team to recruit and draft well as you say. New front office in Miami though, isn't it? Or just new HC?

Chris Grier is in his first year as GM but he's been around the Miami scouting set up for a long time, I don't have much faith in him turning things round but time will tell i suppose. 

Brian Flores the head coach is in his first head coaching job so its hard to predict how good he's gonna be. He was the linebacker coach at the Patriots were he was apparently very highly thought of, saying that Belicheck has always been the brains behind their defence.

It's a bit like the Boro with the recruitment in Miami. ?

? nothing less than the egotistical arsewipe deserves. Gone from earning a guaranteed £30m to a guaranteed £9m to having earned just over £150,000 this season. Couldn’t happen to a nicer man.

The guy is a *** pillock of the highest order. If there's any justice in the world he never plays another down.

But I think we know someone will scoop him up.

Can someone give a brief resumé? I know not the case...

Of Antonio Brown?

God damn man, where to start. Here are a number of things that he's done, mostly this off season but a couple date back to prior years.

1. Wants out of Pittsburgh - makes it public on twitter. Blames JuJu for the failed season.

2. Gets frostbite on his feet in Oakland. IN OAKLAND.

3. Throws a paddy when they make him change helmet in Oakland as his old one failed safety tests

4. Almost fighting his GM in Oakland. Literally tried to have a fist fight. Called his GM a 'cracker'. Kicked a football away and said "fine me for that". He got fined for that.

5. I believe he actually turned up to training camp for Oakland in a hot air balloon this year.

6. Wants out of Oakland. Makes it public on twitter, before ever even playing a snap for them - cut by Oakland & they voided $30m in guaranteed money.

7. sexual assault allegation 1

8. farting in doctors face allegation

9. sexual assault allegation part two

10. Sent a bunch of threatening group texts to the 2nd accuser including sending pics of the accusers kids & asking his friends to "investigate" her.

Has thrown furniture out of high rises.

90% of this has all happened in the last couple months - the sexual assault stuff is on going as we speak.

And somehow, the Steelers come out of this as the winning party ?

I genuinely am amazed at how well Tomlin and the Steelers kept this stuff quiet. There's no way he hasn't been acting up like this in Pittsburgh previously but there was so little public knowledge about how nuts he was. It's actually incredible.

    • What are the thoughts about the last comment with that photo? Could that be the young premier league striker? Let’s go?
    • Do we really need another cb? Assuming he sees Mcnair there, we still have Fry to come back, Wood looks more than capable to be 5th choice and we also know Howson is semi capable of filling in a back 3. Just seems daft to be spending limited funds on another one.  That is the Boro way though, why buy a winger when we can have a 7th CB. 
    • Great minds think alike,super player 
    • Yes agree with that. Rovers did give a good account of themselves. I wouldn’t mind giving Jack Byrne the chance to be the creativity in the Boro midfield. He has a touch of quality about him
    • I'm really hoping he's on a contract like Akpom of 3+1 because if Dijksteels on a flat 3 year contract we need to extend it ASAP. Standout defenders in this league go for an absolute truck of money, standout defenders in the fashionable back 3 formation like Kelly or Webster? Bring 2 trucks. If we don't have an option then renegotiate him up on the scale, we can't let him do what he did to Charlton and get a move as he enters his final year next summer we need to tie that lad down I can't think of many other wide CBs with his pace/strength/ability to read the game in this league right now.
