I feel i dont know the teams very well but i will be biased go for The Packers making the superbowl
dont know about the NCAA though :hmmm:
Schedule has been announced for the final tomorrow, think the first match will start around 12:45 - 1pm
Davis Cup final draw
David Goffin v Kyle Edmund; Ruben Bemelmans v Andy Murray
I thought this would be a good time to start this thread after an informative weekend of NH racing.
What's the feeling on Sprinter Sacre ?
Faugheen 15/8 for the Champion Hurdle, value ?
Now that all the places have been taken up I Thought it would be better to start a new thread with this.
The Draft: The draft will be an offline draft made on this thread and i will input the players into the appropriate teams once the draft is complete. I think the draft will be the most...
Klitschko pulls out injured. I'm quite disappointed, was looking forward to Fury getting knocked out.
The season ending Championships at the O2 in London begins today with Novak Djokovic taking on Kei Nishikori this afternoon and then Roger Federer takes on Tomas Berdych tonight.
Tomorrow Andy Murray starts his campaign against David Ferrer at 2pm and then Stan Wawrinka plays Rafael Nadal at...
Not seen a thread for this as yet so lets get it started.
Whats everyone hopes and plans for the coming year??
I am hoping to get down to a cat 1 golfer only 0.4 from it just now and to try and get out and play a bit more
I will be playing the turnhouse 7 day open again its a great week...
Well done son, a victory for one of the good guys.
Thoughts on this everyone?
I think Aus will win but got good odds on drawn series so stuck a small bet on it. Was at the cricket at Yorkshire the other day but don't have a ticket for the Ashes.
Shocking news that possibly the greatest ever rugby player has died suddenly aged just 40. A colossus of a player.
Set for April if Joshua beats Whyte in December regardless of whether Fury wins or loses against Klitschko.
Eddie Hearn confirmed in an interview with Boxing News.
He went all out to rip him a new one. :greengrin
Sad news about Pat Eddery dying at such a relatively young age. Absolute class act and was by far my favourite jockey when I followed racing when younger.
Golden Fleece and El Gran Senor stick out. You always knew your money was safe when Pat came cruising along about 2 out.
Signed for Manchester in Fenruary next year.
Absolutely massive fight, arguably the biggest British/Irish fight in a decade or more. Unification bout for 2 legitimate world titles, definitely going to try and get to the one.
Just to say that Monarchs capped a run of three away victories last night by beating Somerset comprehensively 51-42 to go 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a match in hand over Glasgow. Cook, Sedgman, Riss and Wolbert majestically magnificent.
Current holders of all three...
We have a public holiday here for the Melbourne Cup today. It's about the only time I bet on the nags. Picked my horses - as did the wife and kids - and put $1 each way on each horse.
Whilst at the betting agency I see Prince of Penzance was in the green and white (and mauve) and thought maybe $10...
So the opening day has come and gone (I didn't bother starting this during Spring Training and the WBC as I've otherwise been busy) the past 2 days and the Summer sport is underway (if only the weather would now join it - looked positively freezing, particularly in Minnesota last night!). Houston...
Not really an egg chasing fan but will take an interest in what is happening in the World Cup until at least Scotland get knocked out or someone beats Engerland. (Commentators do my head in and I am sick of hearing they won the World Cup once.)
I see our first game is tomorrow afternoon against...
... Dr William Gilbert Grace died. Possibly the first modern sporting superstar, probably the greatest all-rounder in the history of cricket, and the man whose "financial opportunism" made the Ashes what it is. Equally at home in the bookmakers' tent as at the wicket, he could have written the...
Extra tickets available. Fairly sporadic now but there none the less.
What's the predictions? Britain 3-2 for me.
Used to love watching this guy playing for the Racers. Stunned he's still been playing at that age!
I didn't know much about this guy until reading the build up to his fight last night which he was very impressive in.
The suggestion is that neither Cotto or Froch would be particularly keen to fight him and so he may face Andre Ward next.
Any boxing fans on here seen more of him than me?
What do you think is Scotland's (or someone who is Scottish) greatest sporting moment. Ideally, it should be a winning moment, but it could also be a moment of sportsmanship!
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1990
Scotland rugby - Grand Slam 1984
Andy Murray - Wimbledon 2013
Sandy Lyle - Masters...
Lots of boxing coming up, enjoy.
Nothing to do with football, nothing to do with Hibs, but HUGE well done to Wales for beating the English against all the odds. Just shows you what can be achieved in the face of adversity.
Just noticed that Brian Close has died - former England, Yorkshire and Somerset captain and a very fine opening batsman.
Brave man - stood up to Andy Roberts and Michael Holding without all the padding and headgear they wear nowadays.
Can someone remind me why there are no matches scheduled for Murrayfield in this WC? I know England is the host nation but Cardiff are putting on games.
Cardiff's not in England.
Great victory for Japan over South Africa in the World Cup.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
The final Grand Slam of the year begins tomorrow and on day one, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are both in action.
Djokovic should be on around 8pm UK time against Joao Souza whilst Nadal will be on around 2am on Tuesday against Borna Coric.
Andy Murray doesn't play until Tuesday but...
I'll guess in advance.... BOOM!
Anyone watching Mayweather tonight? Groves fight is just starting.
Good read in the Guardian - lengthy piece about how the All Blacks have sustained a winning team and a winning mentality over the decades.
Some interesting perspectives in relation to how we coach football here.
Sad to see him playing so poorly. I don't think much of him as a person, but as a golfer he was one of the best!
Question - do you ever see him regaining his status as the one to beat? I really don't think so. His swing now has too many 'issues' and his chipping is very poor. Worse than Hunter...
Great match on just now between Novak Djokovic and Alexandr Dolgopolov in the first semi final. Djokovic has just fought back from behind in the second set to level the match in the tiebreak after Dolgopolov won the opening set 6-4.
Murray and Federer still to come! :thumbsup:
I take in interest in boxing but far from an expert.
However, is Khan for real with some of the things he says about Mayweather?!
Can someone enlighten me?!
Congratulations to Andy Murray, and his wife Kim, on the announcement that they're expecting their first child together, early in the New Year!
Fantastic news. :aok:
Finished as a player v A Lewis then sneaked back from 6-1 down to win 8-7! Get in there!
Going Thursday and Friday on the hospitality :cheers:
Bets placed already £25 e/w on Jordan Spieth @ 13/2; and £25 e/w (free bet) on Oosthuizen @ 25 /1
