Right, my turn. I’m Anders and a HUGE Redskins fan. I’m Danish but have lived in Windsor the last 17 years. I’m married and have two young girls. Whenever they let me have a break I watch as much NFL as possible. I truly love that the season is so short, as it makes me appreciate every single moment of it. I don’t mind the off-season because it gives me a chance to catch up on the many superb NFL documentaries there are on GamePass + NFL related movies on streaming services. Each year I try and make it a goal to learn more about the rules of the game because I keep on getting surprised by how little I know about it when watching the games.
Just like Gordon, Adam and Jon above I was also one of the ‘Original 17’ who took part in Noel’s superb Live Draft League. I still remember the draft last August and it was truly one of the highlights of my year. The camaraderie, banter, fun and experiences I have gained from joining that league are immense. I cannot wait for our second draft to kick off - it’s going to be lots of fun to meet the new guys and to finally have a proper pub crawl with the guys afterwards.
I used to watch a lot of sports but have decided to mainly focus on the NFL and College Football. In my mind ‘Soccer’ has just gotten too boring and there are too many games to continue making it exciting. I got annoyed by money taking over the game and leaving proper academies behind. A year ago I decided to drop Sky Sports and ‘soccer’ - family life took over and you get to a point where there’s only so much time available to watch sports.
My true passion is to watch NFL games in the U.S. and this year I’ll be going with Gordon and another mate. Due to not knowing the schedule yet we don’t know which game it will be but one thing is certain … Redskins will be one of the two teams in action
