    Okay, this is prolly aimed more at Americans... For those who are unaware, this Monday (Aug 9 - 8:00pm EST) is the Hall of Fame Game: Denver vs Washington, which will begin the football season! Whoo! Any predictions? Any hopes? Any trash talk?

    Denver will stomp Washington... No way they will let Elway down when he's being inducted.

    But maybe I'm a bit biased there.

    you get less downs

    3 downs in CFL
    4 downs in NFL

    this means you have to go farther to get to the endzone

    the field is longer

    in CFL the 150 yard field (i think thats the lengh) doesn't include the endzones.

    finally the football is larger making it harder to catch.

    now since i am not an avid football player/watcher i could be wrong, but i am a proud canadian.

    then there's lacroisse.

    why is it that any time an american sport is made into a thread, the rest of europe and north america sees fit to blab about some other sport? jesus. how many euro 2004 posts did i read that contained nothing but football [not american football, but..u know..soccer..] and no other sports!

    but ooooooooh noooooooo, the second basketball/american football/baseball are mentioned...it's like american sports fans have to defend themselves and yell for the right to speak above the mundane clatter about other sports that people think are better because heaven forbid anyone talk about a sport that's not the favorite of whatever nationality the reader is.
    [/rant]

    anyways..yes this is the internet and no one should be censored. but i'm allowed to rant!

    I think the rant is justified, the other posts are completely off topic. Dad asked about predictions for the upcoming year in American football. Not whether or not you like the sport.

    Denver for the Monday game, unless Washington has made some major improvements. I don't follow the sport as much as I used to when I was younger. I just don't have the time to sit down and watch it anymore.

    Personally, I have to agree with all the Denver folks. There's no way that they'll let Washington win while Elway is being inducted.

    SitraAchra: Yea, I know what you mean, but I've just learned to ignore it..

    I have always really liked Elway and I also agree if they let him down it would be a disgrace. I don't think they will.

    go niners :rolleyes: :worried:

    I'm not really an AFC fan, but I'd like to see Denver win, what with Elway being inducted and all. Neither of those teams really interest me though. I'll always be a niner fan :rock:

    That is all.

    (Even with two hundred and fifty year old Testaverde as quarterback we have the best defense in the league and Me-Shawn and Eddie George on offense. Hope you 'skins fans are looking forward to getting whupped twice this year too.)
