You must've missed the imposed board rule that everyone is named Brad.

Welcome back, Brad!

Been here for a while, but don't post often.

The name is "Brad" but people call me Jeff.

Good afternoon, I'm Gary from Glasgow, Scotland.

I've been keeping here for a while and recounted it was time to say hello.

I stayed watching NFL around 94/95 and been an acid fan of The Cure I just had to follow the team with Robert Smith in the backfield. The decision made easier being a rabid Replacements and Husker Du fan.

There had been a few times I wish I hadn't hitched my flag to that purple mast but wish it's life as a sports fan.

I look forward to some quality football discussion /debate /argument with you fine people.

I should really pay more attention to the old autocorrect. Honest, I'm not a modern [emoji16]

Brad,

It's also strange how autocorrect changed your name to Gary.

Nice to see you in here. Hope you find it a good place to chat.

I just found The Cure this week. I'm not usually an acid fan, but a buddy sent me a video of The Cure - The Sound Of Silence. Simply amazing.

Brent... I mean Brad, Dang autocorrect.

Welcome Jeff... I mean Brad... Dang, this is hard. From now on, it's just Brad. I won't have to worry about remembering peoples names or anything.
