  1. Yes! Because I got a magnificent...
  2. The answer appears to be...
  3. Exciting experiment... does getting really drunk make me better at the quiz?
  4. But but but electable but but but Hamas but but but Momentum but but but what was the question again?
  5. Entirely possible. The closest I can think of is Anzhi Makakhala (sp?) who live and train in Moscow but fly into war-torn Dagestan for every home game.
  6. There's no issue with American teams coming to Britain, for a one-off game, as far as I'm concerned. Even without a subsequent bye week. If you can play in Seattle on a Sunday then Jacksonville on a Thursday, there's no reason why you can't play in London one Sunday and America the Sunday after. A far bigger problem for a franchise would be organising it so that the London team weren't totally exhausted from their eight trips to the US each season.
  7. I kept hoping it would happen at Villa Park last season.
  8. I thought to myself, "hopefully some decent questions so I can get a reasonable score and avoid the bottom spot". Question 1: "Who won Australian Masterchef?". [emoji19] Anyway, I knew the phonetic alphabet and the novel, managed to work out the French King. A plodding (but still improved) 5/10.
  9. I thought he might be. Also noticed he doesn't walk with his hands in his pockets so can't be Yul Bryner!
  10. It's not the same, but the closest analogy I can think of is how many Rangers fans threatened to boycott the club when they signed Mo Johnson? How many actually did? I think the 8% is nonsense. Even the most homophobic scum might moan but they'd still support their team, just as racists carried on supporting their teams when black players started to get selected regularly.
  11. It would depend for me. If a club moved out of necessity and not too far, as was the case with Clyde, I could continue to support them. If a club abandoned a perfectly good set-up and moved hundreds of miles away they could GTF. I'd just cheer for the inevitable "Phoenix Club" that would end up in the lower reaches of non-league.
  12. Maybe. What was it like when, say, Arizona first got a team? Presumably they all supported other teams before the Cardinals turned up?
  13. I wouldn't, but I'd rather they were a "British" team, even if in name only.
  14. The Championship game could easily be held at midday East Coast time as we have hosted games at 6pm UK team loads of times. In terms of the playoffs, if you don't want to travel to London, finish above the London team in the seedings and you'll be guaranteed not to have to play them away. As for the "day trip", I think the NFL have researched this and shown that the vast majority of attendees live within an hour of London.
