This just highlights how bad Spence positional play really is 🤷‍♂️

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 i

This is for those of us who follow the NFL! Join in by telling us which team you support!  I have been supporting Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 18 years, and that has been really bad for the last 15

I have to stay up to watch my Buccs beat The Saints! .. I can watch the game and still manage 3 hours of sleep before work 😛 

Anyone else watching it?

Shocking application of the fumble touchback rule in the Chiefs Browns game! 

Chose to ignore the fact it was helmet to helmet contact as well

Why should it be a touchback?

Why no review allowed?

Some odd rules in NFL

Still supporting the team that plays the Chiefs!

It's unfortunately the correct application of a stupid rule. There's absolutely no reason that a fumble like that should go to the defence. If you fumble out of bounds on the rest of the field you keep the ball. Just send them back to the 20 or something if you fumble through the end zone. 

They DID miss the head to head penalty though, but the problem is calls/non calls for penalties are not reviewable so they probably saw it on the reviews and were like "well we're gonna get slated for missing that..." the NFL / Refs don't want reviews because they don't want their feelings to be hurt. It's the whole kerfuffle with the PI review from last year. They brought it in, they reviewed a bunch, the refs office refused to reverse any calls basically regardless of how wrong they were. They took the review out again this offseason claiming it was pointless.

It was pointless because the refs made it so.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the touchback fumble rule changed this offseason though; that was a high profile enough mistake / issue that it's going to be talked about for a while. I know you can't really look at it this way because had they scored there the game changes and maybe Mahomes doesn't get hurt, but they lost 6/7 points there and lost the game by 5 so you can't help but feel a little aggrieved. 

On the topic of Mahomes, will be very interesting to see if he plays next week. If the NFL were serious about concussion protocols, being knocked out of a game like that should be an automatic sitting for a week or more because of how dangerous concussions can be, but I'd be amazed if he doesn't pass all the tests and be declared fit for the weekend.

@SmogDane congrats! This image is appropriate

Tom Brady has done it again. Aaron Rodgers another Playoff defeat 

He bottled that last chance on 3rd down.

He might have got the TD but at least 4th and short and a chance of a TPC to tie

Instead they take a FG? Doesn't figure

Don't like Brady but prefer him to to Mahomes

    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
    • there’s two considerations for me in this. Firstly, I think some of this depends on where we are going to play Djik. If he is now a CB then I would want a RWB to come in and Spence is the most obvious choice. He can challenge Jones for the spot and competition will be good for both of them.  I don’t want it to be the case that if Jones has a dip in form, suspension or injury that we are having to juggle several players about. the secondary issue is where is Spence’s head. Does he want to come back or is he done with Middlesbrough. I don’t want anyone that may be disruptive in the dressing room. I am not saying he is or isn’t I have no knowledge either way but I would want to know where his head is at.
