  1. I was at an exciting Digital Construction expo opposite EGX today, and it looked good, and it is in a fair bit of space. However I did also see some massive queues, mainly around the doom set up. Yesterday was some league of legends thing going on, that looked just odd. A massive space in darkness with mist coming out onto the main concourse that first of all fooled me into thinking there was a fire ( from a distance).

    Around the ground it's slightly different to Wembley, with them not having the space to have the "tailgate" zones, and Wembley way etc. So basically, they have some buses and basic entertainment (QB competitions, kids races, etc) out on the High Road, and from what I saw some plaza type space with food trucks and bars at the front and back ( I say back but not massively sure of the layout, so around gates 18-22). Maybe others had a different experience but my take was, outside was not quite the destination event as Wembley. Decent pub for pre match beer if you don't have kids with you, called Bar 8 (or something 8), just by the Stadium. Big beer garden out the back, and we managed to see all 32 shirts! Inside the ground for me is where it really takes off. Plenty of space to move about, loads of bars and food outlets on the ground floor. Our seats were up on level 5, and service and availability of facilities was poor in comparison. My wife waited nearly 20 mins to buy some crisps ! That said up to 4 years ago I was standing at a half time bar in Upton Park that was 20 ft across serving all the top tier of the South stand, so things have moved on ! I don't think there is a bad seat in the ground, except maybe right up the top of the high stand behind one of the ends. You can tell it was built with this type of game in mind. I did read some reviews saying the seats were small. I didn't think that was the case and it was comparable with my seat in the Olympic Stadium. Looking to get a blog up later today. Includes the Raiders Squid ! EDIT Blog up https://mrben09.com/2019/10/08/chicago-bears-at-oakland-raiders-nfl-06-10-2019/
  3. Not bitter at all. Disappointed at a game I have attended at the top levels for over 35 years is slowly being destroyed by technology. You obviously missed the part where I mentioned Raheem Sterling incorrectly (in my eyes, and everyone else in the stadium) had one chalked off, in a game where they beat us 0-5. Before you call me up on that, it was even reported by the BBC that is was for a handball, when it was actually an offside (everyone told later - post game) Part of the appeal of football is the human element. Also, when they are reviewing, why can't we see what they are looking at, and why can't it be full on 90% to the pitch, rather than this odd angle but frankly doesn't help their sell.

    Really confused why my last two posts in this thread have garnered negs. If I've offended anyone I apologise, but some explanation would be useful. Unrelated: Apparently Gruden is coming to Oakland, for obvious reasons. Can't say I'm massively happy should that come about. Our offence needs work, but not from him.

    Is it a”Black Out” to get ratings up for live London games ? Anyway, Raiders finally dein to win in my presence. Great day out, and amazing stadium. There. I’ve said it. Damn Spuds.

    Off to Raiders Bears today. Probably going to be 0-3 for me watching the Raiders live. Nice to take a look at the Spuds ground though.
  7. Really ? This is not the first time this season , so not just about yesterday. If 5mm is offside but can’t be sorted by the Lino (because they cannot see it) then get rid of them. Any fucker can blow for throw ins. Just let tech run it all. Just take all the emotion out of the game while you are at it. Tech has its place, but the smallest of infractions isn’t it. Before you talk about lines on a screen, can you be 100% sure it was at the exact time of contact of the header. Without that being filmed from the right angle as well, you can’t, so that 5mm might be at the header ? Clear and obvious mistakes only. Or change the rules to empower the actual officials. Before I get accused of bias, I think the goal by Sterling against West Ham was legit as well.
  8. It’s been a while, hi. VAR can go fuck a donkey. Out.
  9. Downloaded X360 verson onto the one, and using the logitech wheel on a rig, with pedals and a 55" screen up close, is about as close to an in house acade experience I will get. Even if flappy paddles for gears are slightly predated bt the game! Amazing and worth all the 6 quid i spent. Best of 1st place at 2.32 on beginner (AT)
  10. Just downloaded this hopefully onto my xbox one. Will it work with a logitech 920 ?

    No worse than, "Oh yeah , that's X, he's come round to try Farm Simulator on the wheel and pedal rig !" That was 2 weekends ago.
