Was great to meet you all yesterday. Got back to Bristol just after 1am but it was well worth the drive!
Noel - thanks again for organising, you’ve done a great job getting us all together and I’m glad to finally be a part of it. Was great chatting with everyone yesterday, met a lot of new people and put names to a lot of faces. And learned that Joique Bell’s mum is really nice (thanks Noel).
My winner of the draft on paper looking at it in the light of day today would be the reigning champ, Chris (now decked out with the bling ring which I assume he will be wearing every day…).
I’m intrigued to see how Sean’s team will shake out - he’s clearly shooting for the moon with a handful of high upside players that he’s betting will break out (as an Eagles fan I’m hoping he’s right about Agholor!). Although to be fair I expect he’ll have traded them all away for some super team before Week 1 if last year’s stories are anything to go by!
But it’s still obviously anyone’s league - we all know how unpredictable the NFL season is. There are likely to be injuries that will throw a spanner in the works (at least I know Simon’s hoping there will be - I hear he’s already booked flights to the US to kneecap CJ Anderson, Eddie Lacy and Marshawn Lynch. Terrell Suggs eat your heart out).
Hope you all got home safe and are enjoying the Bank holiday monday to recover (except Robert, sorry mate!). Roll on Week 1!
