jjcabgou - Just to keep you updated in the local area, the Jets are talking really big. Fans are talking smack and the cool aide is flowing. When that happens, it usually means good things for my Giants. How do you watch the games?

Colin - I get a chance to provide you with an education with NY football. The NY Jets are losers and have been since 1969. The fans are hardcore whiners that after one good game or play start talking about how they are going to win the Superbowl. The current coaching staff is lead by a big blowhard that hasn't really done anything except have a video go viral with his foot fetish involving his wife. (This is an example of Talking Smack).

Drinking the cool aide has to do with some cult group that had their followers drink poison cool aide and the whole place was wiped out. Jet fans drink the cool aide every year from that losing organization.

Go Giants!

Like religion and politics sport should also be banned here! ;D
 
FOOTBALL can be:
1. Rugby - a mans game for real men.
2. Soccer - a camp game for drama queens.
3. Irish Football (aussie rules with a round ball) and Aussie rules football - for violent people to give free rein to their psychopathic tendencies.
4. America Football - That sport played only in one country which takes too long but has the grossly overpaid sportsmen who are really only active for a few minutes and whose personal lives make for more interesting reading.

Every sport can be watched live online with the 'wiziwig' website - and more importantly it is FREE.

I'm game.  Using Yahoo?
Colin, as a Lions fan, you have more going for you than I, as far as the history goes.  There are Jets players who are lucky enough to wear SB rings.

What is 'Fantasy football'


Fantasy football is an interactive online competition in which users compete against each other as general managers of virtual “fantasy” teams built from “drafting” real players. The players that an individual is able to manage are professional American football players in the National Football League. The different actions people are able to make are drafting, trading, adding or dropping players, and changing rosters every week. Due to the growth of the internet, fantasy football has vastly increased in popularity, particularly because fantasy football providers such as ESPN Fantasy Sports, CBS, Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, and the NFL itself are able to keep track of statistics entirely online, eliminating the need to check box scores in newspapers regularly to keep track of players, which is how fantasy football players first had to keep track of stats. Most leagues have a 13 week season, a small playoff bracket, and a single week championship in week 16 of the NFL season.

If we have fantasy football, do we have fantasy virtual betting with it?

I don't understand the reference to being a Lions fan? The only sports that interest me are sailing and flying, anything involving balls I see as pointless and just a load of .....  :D

Splooge aka Dan, I bought the NFL game pass, which includes NFL total access, and every NFL game to include playoffs and superbowl.

I guess based on the responses there are not many people interested in a league, which is fine, I still do the one from the USA (I will just miss the draft party).
Figured I would give it a shot

Every year, I join TourneyTime Suicide Pool.  You pick one team to win every week. If your team loses, you're out, if you win, you continue.  I've won twice already.  It costs $20 per entry.

If you will set up a suicide pool, I'm in.

Blindman, I will via the internet, connected to my TV.  Had to purchase the NFL game pass, but it was the same price that I paid for the NFL ticket in the states.
It will air every single game
