Spare a thought for the poor old Miami Dolphins fans in the NFL.

After the completion of 16 rounds and the H&A season the Dolphins won 1 game  :o

Compare this to the New England Patriots who went 16-0 - yep didn't lose a game.

Some might say we had only won one game after 16 rounds  :shh.

Derby County in the EPL has only won 1 game out of 21.
Currently they are on 7 points with 1 win and 4 draws and are on track
to eclipse Sunderland's record haul of 15 points for the entire season in 2005/06.

Just for the record Sunderland had 3 wins 6 draws and 29 losses in thier 38 game season list.

One of the reasons I'm glad we don't have 30 rounds. It's bad enough watching 22 games when Richmond has a horror year like last year.

Incredible effort by the Patriots btw. They're going for 4 Superbowl win in 6 years too.

New England has now made it 17 wins in a row. They need to get past San Diego and then either Green Bay or the Giants in the Superbowl to go through the whole season undefeated.

They will MT now that the chokers in Indianapolis are out who were their greatest threat.
It will be a New England vs Green Bay Final pitting quarterback legend Brett Favre in his swansong against the incumbent no 1 if he already aint there in Tom Brady. In 1972 the Maimi Dolphins went undefeated in the season only to lose the superbowl. How cruel is that?Indianapolis have lost 7 games in 3 seasons yet only have 1 superbowl. Sport can be very very cruel.

Yep sport can be cruel. Learnt that in 1982  :P

If it turns out Patriots vs Packers then it could go down as one of the greatest Superbowls ever. The two greatest quarterbacks of the modern 21st century era go head to head. A promoter's dream. Brady would be going for his 4th Superbowl champion ring which would given him the record along with legendary quarterbacks Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw.

New England are still undefeated and through to the Superbowl. 21-12 over San Diego.

Packers and Giants are going down to the wire. 20 all with 5 minutes left.

Sadly the Brady vs Favre promoters dream won't happen. New York through in overtime 23-20.

NY Giants Eli Manning can maybe emulate the achievement of his brother from last years superbowl (Peyton Manning) and be part of superbowl winning team. Although they have momentum and have beaten better credentialled opponents away from home the task seems too much. They came in having been ranked 6 and beat Tampa Bay , no 1 ranked NFC Dallas and no 2 ranked Green Bay. Having said this I still think New England will romp home but only two years ago the Pittsburgh Steelers won the superbowl having been the 6th ranked team in the AFC going into the playoffs so it has been done before although the AFC is much much stronger than the NFC, but nevertheless good luck to Giants. They will need it.
I merely envy the week off the competing superbowl teams get in some tropical paradise relaxing with bikini clad girls all around them attending all their needs both mental and of course physical. :cheers Some blokes have all the luck :thumbsup
You would think that these sort of distractions in the week leading up to the biggest game of the year would have an adverse effect on the players. :rollin :lol :rollin

Errr....... Derby County is my team in England :'( :'( :'(

There seems to be a pattern here doesn't it  :rollin

Richmond and Derby County also have another thing in common.

Both won their last premiership in 1980.

They need 9 points in 15 games WP to avoid having the fewest number of points ever in a premiership season.
