    NFL 2020

    So Thursday kicked off the NFL season. An amazing accomplishment that the game is being played. I do not think that red state Missouri cared much about the virus as they allowed 16k people into the stadium many not wearing masks.

    And they booed the moment of solidarity when the teams came together and linked arms.

    I know it's hard to separate criticism of the nation from the person at times -- which it isn't -- and that there are many, many things as an American to be rightfully proud of but I'm sorry to say that place is utterly fucked right now.

    Care to point them out for me? I am stewing in this shithole and I can not think of any.

    But I was hoping to keep this sport related. The fact that this season is happening is a major accomplishment. Knock on wood.

    Yep that's fair enough, sorry for the politics interlude.

    And yep it's good to see the NFL back. It's not good the Chargers are my team this year (going by 'Hard Knocks')

    Mahomes looked like he is worth the money. The Chiefs were sharp. No fans in SF for the Niner start. 325am Monday here. Sounds fine by me. Lets see what Kittle does, along with our D.

    No fans in Seattle either. It is going to be weird watching games without spectators but it is better than nothing at all.

    Been a bears (and Cubbies) fan since studying in Chicago - a real home-fanbase. Horrible city but good teams.





    (Though I do admit to a liking for the Jets)

    They do have a crazy fan base. Lots of tradition there.

    will be interesting to see if they can complete the season. it's incredible to me that there have been so few positive tests so far.

    edwards-helaire looks like an absolute steal as the last pick in the first round.

    Actually no I was wrong... Not geo-blocked but blocked from being played on TD / third-party sites.

    Just seen it directly on YouTube.

    True . . . but just look at the names, not even only the players:

    Ditka
    Payton
    Butkus
    McMahon (of the aforementioned worse QBs)
    Singletarry
    Gault
    'The Fridge' (only in Chicago!!!)

    I was a kid but I remember that Ditka coached Bears superbowl team. I still remember the rap that they did "the superbowl shuffle"

    Before my time, but yes . . .

    I've lived/worked in many cities in the US but Chicago does have the 'best' fans . . . but it is the worst city.

    Agreed. Hopefully they do not make that a precedent for the season. My Seahawks look to have a top tier defense as Jamal Adams was an absolute beast on the field Sunday sadly as usual we have a shit offensive line.
