    Wow. They made an announcement during the coverage to donate to the Red Cross for the bushfires. That’s pretty awesome.

    Close game. Both teams playing to their strengths. Will be a nail biter probably.

    What a f**king terrible sport. Seriously how many commercials? From what I’ve read about 12 min is the average time the ball is in play during an entire game.

    If they can’t stop the run and we don’t fumble, it should be good

    The game is still very much on when the ball isn't in play.
    If you think of it in man minutes (when the ball is in play EVERYBODY is 100%) there is more play than a game of rugby league where players take off an entire set of possession a lot.

    I like San Frans style of play. Lots of "window dressing" (one of many American Football terms I love). Run first.
