Re: NFL Thread

I genuinely think Ruggs could land there as the #1 WR taken (in fact ive got a pending bet for Ruggs to be the first WR drafted at $4.00) I wasn't even away of these betting markets. Gives me something to punt on during the draft now. FYI: Ladbrokes have Ruggs at $5.00. Worth a bet I reckon as it d...

Re: NFL Thread

You 1st lose me at Jets though, even if your explanation is sound. They lost Anderson, so I wold have said they need/ want to replace him. Given they get their pick of WRs, they take the best one. If you say thats Juedy, then thats who they take. It also means that Raiders likey take Lamb. So, if y...

Re: NFL Thread

These moves are the biggest talking point of the early picks. Just think about it for a minute though. You're saying all your info coming out of Miami has Herbert at the top of their board. Now if that mail was any good then wouldn't the Chargers have the same info? If so then there is no reason fo...

I actually like Lamb more than Juedy This reminds me a little of the Clowney Mack draft where i went pretty hard in on Mack saying i think he's the better prospect.

CBS are doing a mock draft ATM. They just had the Eagles trading up, via the 9ers to #13 to grab Lamb. Giving up 21, 103 and 145 - so a 1 and 2 3s?
Id do that in a heartbeat

Would be a bit of a hollow feeling winning a premiership based on a 13 week season, wouldn't it? The whole integrity of the comp has just been destroyed this season.

Yeah i think the greater RL community and Raiders fans see this entirely differently
as this thread shows, lot of love for Thurling but i'd wager 99% of non Raiders fans have absolutely no memory of him whatsoever. So its hard to say a guy was underrated he wasnt good enough to be remembered
