  1. Will they definitely be able to be redeemed now though?

    NFL 2021!

    Yes, really positive start and plenty to be excited about. The running game was a no-show but that’s not a big surprise against the Bucs. Surely Collins’ ban will be overturned. It’s unprecedented to ban a player for just missing tests (4% missed over 18 months apparently). Gallup out for a few weeks though which isn’t great.
  3. You have to be a subscriber to get that unfortunately.
  4. @Mortis those are simple one stage ones but they released two full mystery cases with multiple cards. They were initially given away as a promo apparently. Lots of available on eBay but with shipping to Oz the price of silly.
  5. We finally got delivery of MicroMacro crime city this week, it’s been delayed countless times here in Oz. The whole family loves it but we are racing through the cases. In the UK they released two extra crimes as a promo but they never made it here. Does anybody have them? I would love to get a photo of the cards if possible. I can buy them on eBay but it will be over $50 which is silly for two mysteries.
  6. My boy adores the Lego games and can't wait for this. The very long wait after endless delays better be worth it!

    I’m living overseas and not on social media much so this has passed me by. Is there some supposed reason he’s being targeted or just people being cunts?
  8. I reckon you can overthink these films. Like I said earlier it exists just to tell a story in the same way that legends and fables do. They are basically a collection of Macguffins! Yep, some resumé!
  9. This is interesting and the same conversation I had with my wife after watching it. In lots of ways (not least that it’s based on poem) it’s a very straight translation of story to film. Myths, legends and fables often exist for no reason other than to tell a story; Bean stalks, dragon slayers, betrayal, honour, greed, blah blah. Much of the film dawdled and some elements were confusing and open to multiple interpretations but I loved it.
  10. Watched it last night. My viewing pleasure was tempered only by the fact I was watching it with my wife and I knew after about 15 minutes she was going to say it was “one of your weird films”. I loved it. It was beautiful to look at, had a great score and had a sense of weirdness and dread that felt authentic. I didn’t know about the mythology or the poem beforehand but read about it afterwards. Really Interesting. Oh, and I thought Dev Patel was excellent. I look forward to watching this again at some stage (by myself).
  11. Is this basically the BBC version of Banged up Abroad?
  12. Here we go, the team for the 3rd test: Jones, Owens, Furlong Itoje, AWJ Lawes, Curry, Conan Price, Biggar Aki, Henshaw Adams, Van Der Merwe, Williams Subs: Cowan Dickie, Vunipola, Sinckler, Beard, Simmonds, Murray, Russell, Daly Pretty good team overall (and close to my pick for the first test). I thought he might pick Faletau over Conan but he hasn't done much wrong and I'm surprised Watson loses out to Van Der Merwe but whatever, I can't wait and reckon we will see a much better performance.
  13. The problem is that while I have been criticising the back three and the misfiring center partnership the game stats are crazy: We carried 85 times for 105 metres, they carried 86 times and made 179 metres We conceded 16 turnovers, they conceded just 6 We conceded 15 penalties Biggar passed the ball 3 times (yes, three) The back three combined had three successful tackles and three missed tackles. If you aren't going to keep hold of the ball you've got to be better at tactical kicking and at competing for high balls.
  14. Just watched the highlights again. I know it’s part of the modern game but the endless kicking just drive me mad. Box kicks especially as teams barely get chasers up to contest them and you end up making 20-30 yards at best but give away possession. And if you are going to kick up and unders you need better chasing. Usually that’s one of Biggar’s strengths but he’s hanging back on this tour. Need more urgency and commitment at the breakdown too. We are too slow in support and under commiting in the rucks and getting turned over too easily. I’m being partisan I’m sure but I would bring Adams and Williams in to the back three. Not sure what we do about the centres though? Farrell at 12 maybe? We’ve never looked strong in that department even when the touring squad was announced, just no great pairings to conjure up. I guess North would have been their saving grace if he hadn’t got injured before the tour.
