Football Players who fought on D-Day

– All gave some, some gave all 71 years ago today 160,000 allied troops landed at Normandy in Northern France, beginning the fight back against Hitlers Third Reich and ultimately victory in Europe. By land, air and sea, men, machines and supplies landed on Utah, Omaha, Sword, Gold and Juno beachheads, many of them never left. […]

Betting Preview – NFL Week 12

WEEK  11 BETTING PREVIEW RECAP So the least said about Week 11’s selections the better. Denver were upset by St Louis, while Cleveland were also beaten at home and Robert Griffin III could only manage 7 points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leading to Jay Gruden throwing his quarterback under the bus. Onwards we move […]

NFL Betting Preview – Week 11

First off, apologies for the lack of column last week. This column is written every Friday, however last week was taken up by the wedding of the best running back in Ireland, while the weekend was spent getting skint in London seeing the future Super Bowl Champion Dallas Cowboys dismantle a hapless Jaguars outfit. Anyhow […]

Week 8 marks the halfway point for most teams and it’s a good time to sit back, take stock and appreciate what we’ve got. The NFL Ireland Team of the Week has been dishing out the most-sought after honours in sport for half a season now, and the players keep making plays, each one desperate […]

NFL Betting Preview – Week 7

CINCINNATI BENGALS @ INDIANAPOLIS […]

NFL Ireland Team of the Week: Week 6

Week 6 is usually the point in the year where everything settles down, we know what most teams are and the story of the season starts to take shape. Well obviously the Cowboys, Browns, Panthers, Bengals, Eagles and Ravens are reading from a different playbook, because the surprises keep on coming! The 2014 season is […]

NFL Betting Preview – Week 6

WEEK 5 RECAP Week 5 was very much middle of the road. Could have been better, could have been a whole lot worse. The Bears and Panthers went easily over the total, while it was a void bet as over 50 pts hit dead on the mark in New York, and Blake Bortles played like […]
