Default Superbowl Sunday

Needless to say I'm supporting the Panthers for the Superbowl.
Bit worried about them being the "underdogs" but so were Wimbledon so many years ago.
(ScousePete now uttering a few choice words)

Pity there isn't any expats living in New England here for me to taunt. (But why would you leave old England to move to a New one )

Anyway - GO PANTHERS !!
Latest odds: Panthers 7/4 and New England at 2/5

New England for me Webster.........

Tom Brady is an Ex U of M qb.........

Must say though, Pathers have had a ****ing good season so far, see no reason why they can't win.

I don't really care about the Super Bowl but I like the fact the fact that the Carolina Panthers are the underdog. The reason is that they've got nothing to lose, so to speak. People don't expect them to win so if they loose, no-one's that surprised but if they do win, that's even better. It's all part of being the "underdog".

BTW- I'm invited to a Superbowl party at a friend's friend's house. I expect it'll be an interesting experience.

Remember the Patriots where the underdogs 2 years ago against the Rams and look what happened to them!

I am married to girl from Boston, the chances of me being allowed to support the team from the state I live in is extinct. Although our neighbors will have field day if the panthers win

Hey Webbie

I'm an expat in New England, but not really into the Superbowl. I follow hockey just because I play but I can't get into Football. But then again any excuse for a few beers is welcome, so I will join my neighbours for the afternoon.

Enjoy the game

I have my beer, chips and dips already for the big one Should be a real close game as both teams have great Defenses. If Carolina establishes the ground game with Davis and Foster, then they could be a good bet. My friend put $20 dollars down about 2 months before the season started on the Patriots at 12/1 in Vegas. Its only going to pay out $220, but it's closer to winning than the $20 I put down on the skins! lol. Only problem is, I'm meeting up with him in Vegas a week after the super bowl and if the Patriots win on sunday, I'm never going to hear the last of it!.

At the time back in july when I put the bet on, they were looking like it could be a breakout season. Of course, it turned out to be a breakdown instead. But now the God that is Joe Gibbs, is back! and I will be placing another futures bet in Vegas on the 9th of feb

Also, remember during the fantasy league(which I won ) when you complained about getting Carolina's defense in the draft and I told you not to worry as they were good. Not that it helped your team though

I wouldnt go dropping that D just yet Scrumpy. Julius Peppers was rookie of the year last year and they have a strong defensive minded coach in Fox. Might be wise to hold on to them.

Defense against defense - dont expect a high scoring game. I'll take the Pats by 14-7. Interestingly, in 2006 the superbowl will be in Detroit - indoors I hope.
