Week 1 is in the bag and wasn’t there some cracking results and performances (here’s looking at you 4th-Quarter-Mitch)? We’ll shortly be starting to look forward to the next one, particularly since the first Far From Lombardi bet got off to such a terrible start. With just 2 out of 5 correct picks and 1 push (ties get stakes returned for handicapped betting) it is back to the drawing board for us!
In fairness, we took a bit of a punt on the Dolphins but Mr Newton put any hopes of that bet coming in to bed with the kind of performance he’d probably been praying for ever since the Patriots picked him up. I honestly didn’t see the Colts losing to the Jags, that result was right up there with the Washington and Cardinal results for shock value – I know we picked the Cardinals for the acca, but it was more because I thought the spread was too big, I still expected the 49ers to win a close one.
Anyway, some crazy results there in week 1 and that’s why we love the NFL, let’s hope we can navigate around them in Week 2 and pick us all a winner! Look out for the next podcast episde coming soon with all the Week 1 round up and Week 2 previews.

Week 1 FFL Fantasy Football Results
NFL Week 1 might have had some shocks in the real world but the Far From Lombardi Listener League had its own. Taking a look at the first round of matches there were some high scoring and very close games. Very impressive displays from top scoring Rob’s Crown Takers (unfortunately for me!) with 178 and Mark was beaten by an amazing showing by The HotBoyz, 162 to 152.
A quick reminder of all of the team owners…
