    Only @Addi Ras @Trevor and @Alamact picked the Texans. Good work, gents. I thought that the Bengals were better than this.

    :eek:

    Random and not pertaining to Pick 'Em directly, but for anyone who isn't aware, Amazon Prime will be live-streaming some Thursday Night games starting in a couple weeks. One of the things they are offering is an alternative audio stream, one aimed at "American football newcomers" which would attempt to explain some of the basics of the game in more detail. If anyone is interested, here is the article I found discussing it:

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...-include-audio-option-for-football-newcomers/

    I think it's a pretty cool way to get new fans involved, with a real-time "hands-on" approach. If you guys know of anyone who is interested in getting into the NFL a little more, this would probably be a great way to start!

    huh. that's weird and interesting. do you think football has been suffering a decline in popularity/viewership in recent years and they're trying to bolster it up?
    i wouldn't know since i left the sport after Dan Marino and Tony Dungy retired ~ hahahaha

    Oh boy, you've missed a lot of interesting stuff, hahaha. And yet at the same time.... not too much. Ha!

    Mostly, I think it is aimed at gaining more international appeal. I know the NFL has done several things to try and get more fans overseas (they play several games in London each year, and last year they did one in Mexico) but obviously soccer -- that "other football" ; ) -- still dominates the world.

    hahahaha ~ oh, i guess i should correct myself, Tony Dungy didn't retire, he was fired from the Bucs. that was what drove the nail in the coffin for me. i still sorta watched his career with the Colts, but i stopped following football. so yeah, it was early 2000s.

    okay, this makes sense. they're trying to reach a more diverse audience and don't want them to feel alienated.
    well if they stopped talking so much and just played the game, maybe it would have more appeal ~ hahahaha
    hahaha ~ i've gone to two professional hockey games and still have no idea what's going on, but all the violence was quite thrilling! : D

    I love Tony Dungy! Great guy. He's an analyst now, for the NFL, and he's got the most intense stare you could ever imagine. I don't think the man blinks.

    That and, every new fan = more $, hahahah

    I love hockey though. Going to games in-person is wayyyy better than watching on TV. But yeah, those rules can get even more confusing...

    I really loved it when the Bucks wore the SB as it's always nice for the Underdogs win.

    wouldn've been nicer if Dungy got to share that. it was his leadership that got them there. : o (

    He did get a Ring with the Colts. All is well with Tony D. :) I think he's the best coach we've had here in Indy.
