    Doesn't anyone watch football on Saturdy & Sunday afternoon or Monday Night Football?

    I can't be the only person here who watch's football.

    I just want to discuss teams that's all.

    I used to like Seattle this year until their recent debacles. New England and the Eagles look for real, while the Jets' record is significantly pumped-up as a result of playing no one their first 5 games (even though they were in pretty tough with NE). Tennessee is a big dissapointment and Indy needs to gets things under control before they completely lose it....although their offence is so potent, they should be ok. JAX is a huge surprise to me and who the hell would have said San Diego would be 4-3 after 7 games? Pretty impressive.

    Seemingly, the elite teams look to be the Pats and Eagles. But much can change. I just hope someones wallops Terrell Owens soon and knock some sense into him. Yeah, we know you're great, T.O., now just play the damn game and shut up.

    I was Penn State Nittany Lions Fan, but its performance is so poor that I have given up. The other teams I like are Gators (Florida) and Wolverines (Michigan).

    Unless the Eagles' defence gets better fast, they won't get too far in the playoffs.

    The Pats look real good, no weaknesses.

    Smile 49er faithful....

    49er Faithful forever,Also Nevada Wolfpack, Cal Bears, anyone who plays against UNLV & against BYU....Also I never wager money against Notre Dame....they are GOD'S team. Also how bout CFL? I was up for Giants versus Expos. During my visit learned of the Alouettes playing at McGill but was told the game was already sold out. I saw on a news show that they are going to start playing @ Le stade Olympique Shouldn't sell out there should they?

    Pats rule

    I'm a New England fan! Pats are doing great but they are the most important sports team in town right know!
    Now, she should be good-looking, but we're willing to trade looks for a certain... morally casual attitude.

    The Als are very close to selling out all of their games at the Big O. Personally i'm rooting for Toronto this year with the comeback of Damon Allen and the addition of receiver André "black moon" Rison.

    Andre Rison has been a non-factor with the Argos. Apart from getting into a fight minutes into his first game, and criticizing the league's referees, he has been a spare player and named the team's assistant coach in charge of wide receivers.

    The Argos now have former Heismann trophy winner Eric Crouch (Nebraska) in town, trying to coax him into joining the team next year.

    Dee: i used to bet on Football and Basketball through a site called www.thegreek.com. I'm not sure if it still exists, but i'd be surprised if it doesn't. It's an offshore online casino located in Jamaica. I give it high marks.

    Finally some replies. I knew I couldn't be the only football fan here.


    The Dirty One

    I like Seattle as well, & Tennesee is a real huge disappointment.
    I've always liked Jax Jaguars, & the Chargers are doing better than the Bengals this year.

    The Bengals have been one of my teams for a long time & last year was a great season, they were one game short of a playoff spot thanks to Baltimore & this year they aren't doing what they were supposed to be doing as CBS perdicted them to go to the playoffs this year. But at least they had huge wins in their 14yr abscence from primetime games.

    I like the 49ers to but not so much this year as they've let me down.

    As for the Als playing at the "Big O", I'm not sure that will happen as they never sold out in that stadium & I was there at some games when Tracy Ham was QB who was good, & there were never more than 5,000 ppl.

    As much as I like Toronto, I think Montreal will remain the dominant force in the East.

    Have any of you football fans had any experience with online betting... if so could you let us know what site you use and your experience with it.

    Thanks.

    No, but I also heard there was a 1-800# that you can call to place NFL bets.

    I am very surprised that Andre Rison hasn't done more than he has this year as he is very capable of doing more.

    I'm not into betting, way too risky.


    Well my CFL teams are:

    Montreal of course
    Hamilton
    Toronto as I grew up in these 2 places
    Ottawa
    Edmonton
    BC

    My NFL teams are for the NFC
    The Dallas Cowboys
    St. Louis Rams
    Tampa Bay Bucs
    NY Giants
    Seattle

    My AFC teams are
    The Cincinnati Bengals
    The Indianapolis Colts
    The PittsBurgh Steelers
    The Buffalo Bills (I know, I know, but I loved them with Doug Flutie)

    NCAA Football is:

    Notre Dame has always been my #1 team
    Penn State even with the last few years
    Florida State
    Florida
    Miami
    Ohio State
    NC State
    Michigan
    Michigan State
    South Carolina (Lou Holtz ex Notre Dame coach's team)

    I know I like a lot of teams in each of the leagues, but the problem is there are many players I follow & when they get drafted, they usually get spread out around the league.

    So I'm stuck following the different teams they play on & I eventually get hooked on that team.

    As for NCAA football there are just sooo many teams to follow & I think I'm following enough teams, more than most ppl.

    It's nice to talk football around here.

    Oh did anyone else notice ex-WR Yo Murphy who won the Super Bowl with the Rams against Tenesee is now playing for the Ottawa Renegades?

    He's doing well there.

    Well, Sir John, permit me to beg to differ. What Rison has done so far has been pretty impressive if you take a thing or 2 into account.

    First, despite that Rison hadn't played a pro football game in many years before arriving in TO and was unfamiliar with the CFL game and its rules until then, it's remarkable to note that it only took him about 2 weeks to get into game shape and pick up the Canadian game well enough to be able to suit up for a regular mid-season game!

    I've seen him make a few good catches this year including the oustanding grab he made for a touchdown one night at skydome- even though replay later showed the ball had barely touched the ground as he was trying to make the catch.

    As a measure of comparison, if you compare what Rison has done so far with Montreal native and former Seattle Seahawk wide receiver Tommy Kane's somewhat insipid stint with the argos a few years back-the guy's currently sitting in a MTL jail for having killed his wife-, i find Rison's debut pretty encouraging.

    Plus, you also have to take into account that up until now the QB has hardly ever looked his way for a pass. In the Argo's last game i saw with Allen as QB, i didn't see 1 pass thrown at him through the 3rd quarter before i stopped watching.

    And finally, as things are shaping up, the Eastern final will probably feature a rematch of last year's game with the Argos coming to the big O to face the Als before a packed and hostile crowd. In these circumstances, you can't deny the contribution that a veteran, and once an all-star receiver, like A. Rison might bring to the table.

    True, not doing so well this year, but I am a 49er FAITHFUL
    As far as betting goes I'm live in a town where I can legally place a wager just a few steps away from my workplace or a small drive from home. I don't bet alot, and the killer is the point spread. Just how do they know????!!!!! Jeez talk about a science! Remember the old adage,"The only one who ever gets rich in a casino is the owner".

    Yeah I hear you, weren't Joe Montana & Steve Young great QB's for the 9er's?

    Yeah I saw a few of those catches on highlight reels on Sports Center.

    I thought Andre was with either the Browns or the Chiefs the last few years?

    As i said.....Rison has been a non-factor. I never said that it was strictly his fault. The problem is, he's a victim of the numbers' game. Their wide receivers are now all healthy and back playing. He hasn't been away from the game for that long, has he? I suppose that the main reason why he decided to return to professional football was money, after losing in court and having to pay alimony to the mother of a child he conceived a few years ago. Ah, football players......great role models, aren't they?
