Welcome to the board, can't imagine there are too many Falcon Fans in the UK, so you should be able to get a great seat at the game...
Thanks! You'll be surprised, although the Falcons don't have a huge following (most people follow teams that were great in the 70's and 80's as that's when NFL first came to UK) but there are so many football fans here, the stadium has a capacity of 90k and is sold out almost already. The atmosphere is immense, I'm sure we wont match the atmosphere in the dome but we'll definitely try and get close!
Welcome to the board. Would love to hear your account of the game from UK perspective.
It was hard to follow at first coz we don't play at school so the rules were completely unfamiliar but now I've been watching for a while it's taken over my life lol eat, sleep, Falcons. Watch every game live (not easy when we play a late game on Sunday or Monday/Thursday games as they finish at like 3-4am our time....) plan to come to ATL for a game in a coupla years for my 30th birthday, hopefully in line with a home game against the Saints
NFL is massive over here now and getting bigger all the time, the UK coverage is ok but always simplified for people new to the game which gets kinda annoying so I watch the US coverage when possible. The biggest argument over here is, NFL/Rugby, which is tougher...... like it matters (although I think NFL wins that hands down) when football is so much more entertaining.
Can I ask you guys from a US perspective what your thoughts are on our moves in FA so far?
I like the Soliai and Jackson moves on D-line, hopefully guna stop them big run plays that burned so much last year.
Jon Asamoah is a no brainer imo though I think the O-line still needs attention.
I love the hester signing, still think he has what it takes to change the game but I'm not sure about the arenas deal (I understand it's for depth but still....)
Hoping this Rafael Bush deal goes through too.
also, whats with Osi staying at the price and a deal for Peria Jerry..... these two don't make sense for me but I could be missing something.
And finally, the question we keep hearing, who do we go for at #6 (assuming we don't trade up or down)?
