    I came across the UK Vikings fan club a year ago, which was great as it’s a really good environment to talk football compared to the bigger Vikings groups, especially the official social media outlets, which make Derby’s ones look like happy hour 🤦‍♂️😂, but we are by no means all happy clappers either
    It’s surprised me how big the Vikings are over here, we take in the European fans as well and it’s growing really fast. Starting this season we became only the 2nd “official” NFL supporters group in the UK....my understanding is that means, recognised & has a relationship with the organisation, which we are starting to see already and is really cool. The Jags were the first.

    I played Apex briefly but battle royales struggle to hold my interest, but its certainly a well made game. I wish Respawn made Titanfall 3 instead though, personally. I love the Titanfall games.
    One of the many problems with Origin is you're unlikely to create any new connections to people through it, you only play games on it with people you know from somewhere else 😄

    Oh but they released the Rams one yesterday! I'll give that a read.

    I don't know if any of you guys have read the 'Your team sucks' articles on Deadspin, but they are hysterical.....presuming it's not your team they are shredding that is.

    $110m guaranteed for Jared Goff! 
    Think he's pretty overrated personally but QBs make mad money just for not being calamitous 😄

    Pretty crap to be honest. 
    Like reading a sixth formers homework rather than a professional review.
    I particularly loved his article explaining Lowe was much narrower than Bogle, accompanied by touchmaps wrongly labeled, showing the opposite.

    You've just made me aware of this, I actually think it's decent business. 
    I obviously can't remember when Goff first joined up and threw more INT than TD - which inevitably smeared his reputation from the off. I know it was a pretty busted Rams team, but since I've been watching him he's been first class. It's not to say that he doesn't have his bad games, because he does, but he's been very good over the past two seasons.  Dak will get more, without having the same ability IMO.

    I think this is all moot because we were 100% getting relegated regardless of who was in charge (because of, as you highlight, the lack of investment - although it was surely BD's choice to get rid of all the players we lost - we got worse in a lot of positions); but I just want to pull you up on the "picking up slightly".
    We took 5 points from August/September and only lost big to top teams
    We took 1 point through October/November (failing to score in either month) and lost 5-0 at home to West Ham in BD's penultimate game.

    Basically.
    The groups of the competition proper are running while we play our 2 "Domestic Champions path" games.

    If we win the two rounds; we then play one of the 8 teams who finished second in their group of the competition proper in the "play-offs" - winning that puts is into the competition proper's last 16.

    I think the problem is that they're travelling to strongly catholic countries and singing "Duck the Pope". Most Eastern European countries, including Poland, are something like 90%+ Roman Catholic; and are still very strict, dedicated followers of the religion. "Duck the Pope" is, to them, genuinely offensive.
    In the UK it's not seen as a big deal really, because even a large proportion of the "religious" (primarily Christians) are not particularly strict. If you're going to be in competitions that send you to different cultures and societies you have to be mindful of the varying definitions of what is offensive.

    I've been trying to formulate trades; but so many moves outside of the top guys just seem like coin-flips. Trading for the sake of trading. Although things would probably be different if Melvin Gordon wasn't in the situation he's in - I'd be able to shop a decent RB out in that case.
    I'll just see how the first few weeks go, and risk losing any potential value my rookies have - hopefully they have good starts to the season.
