The Return of the Pointless Power Rankings.

Yes they are pointless, yes you will almost certainly disagree & yes it’s impossible to predict where each team will finish, but you know what. It’s fun. So feel free to bombard me with your opinions, whether good or bad. There is nothing wrong with a healthy debate.

The Tailgate Knight wants you to play in his NFL Spread league

Fantasy NFL

As the season rapidly approaches, many football fans will be looking forward to playing fantasy football. But other football fans will be playing a slightly different game, called playing the spread, it is a competition that looks at predicting game outcomes. The Gents are very please to welcome the author of Tailgate to Heaven, Adam Goldstein who will introduce us to the spread and why we should paly it and will be writing a weekly piece for the Gridiron Gentlemen all about this alternative to Fantasy football. So Adam, it is over to you.

Let me be your Fantasy

Fantasy NFL

The pre-season has kicked off and now as we head into mid August the Fantasy leagues start gearing up towards their own drafts. I am very excited that it is Fantasy Football time again. I love the game, mainly because it is stat based, gives and excuse to try and watch ALL THE GAMES and you often get attached to some big scoring players and just want to watch them play. The Gridiron Gentlemen are running their league again, so it seems only fitting that I start by writing a piece on Fantasy football in general, discussing what you need, what to look out for, possible draft strategies and general playing strategies.
