Jimmy with a last chance to redeem himself. He's been crap today.

Time to go home and go to bed. Not a great weekend!

Well done, Chiefs. You bastards!

20-10 up, with the ball. And lost. Sigh.

More drinks please, barman. Going home has been postponed. Time to carry on the beating Leicester in the semi final celebrations.

Unfortunately his limitations were shown. Hes great when the team can stick to a run first offence, but when its on him he is mediocre.

Had a great chance with the long pass down the field but badly overthrew it.

Another great match in the Superbowl. Been a lot of classics in recent years. Delighted for KC and Reid to shake off the chokers tag. Coming from 10 down in each of the three playoff games is seriously impressive. I think this could be a dynasty building with Mahomes.

See they have brought the XFL back. It was a horrendous shitshow years ago and unlikely to be much better this time around.

I'd probably watch it if it was on a channel that I've got. But it's not, so I won't. It's bound to be shite, but still better than the ProBowl! Is Arena Football still a thing? Haven't seen that on telly in years.

The Pro Bowl should have been binned year ago.

I expect that the XFL will fail eventually but not as quickly as the Alliance of American Football

The only way that another league could work is if it's set up as a proper NFL minor league. However, that'll cost the NFL teams money and they'd prefer the training-cost free labour of the college system

The Arena League folded not long ago.

The NFL are going to expand the playoffs to 14 teams staring next season (from the current 12).  Only the 1st seed in each conference will get a bye now.

I like this, more playoff games without more rounds is a good thing.

I don't mind that, so long as it stays at 14. 16 would be shit as it would mean no real advantage for the number one seed over the fourth wild card team.

Also in favour as it gives a better chance of postseason play to those of us cursed with an annoyingly competent division.

Also assuming they go three games each on Saturday and Sunday rather than forcing teams to play on Monday and putting them at a disadvantage the week after.
