    30TDavis - The Aussie Bronco

    30TDavis - The Aussie Bronco

    What you need to know:

    Resides: Brisbane, QLD Australia
    Occupation: Free-lance journalist & p/time poker player
    Age: 26

    I am entering my 15th year of following the Denver Broncos. I started following Denver in 1991 as a then 11 year old taken aback by the game that involved throwing forward passes to score points. This was most unusual back then given in the game of rugby league (my first love) such a play would result in turning the ball over to the opposition - I was hooked.

    The year of 2001 I spent one year and one NFL season in Denver. It was without doubt the greatest twelve months of my life. I lived and breathed football with fellow Denver Bronco fans ... I vowed to come back and make it a more permanent stay, when the time is right, I plan on doing that one day very soon.

    - image is not loading, anyone know why? Image tags are there.

    My favourite all-time Bronco is obviously Terrell Davis. He was a great, great back that was on his way to Canton. Injuries can be cruel, injury robbed us of watching a Hall of Fame career from finishing on his terms. It was tough to see him wind his career down as only half the player he was. As frustrating as it must have been, he did it with style and proved time and time again what a class act he was on and off the field. This fan misses ol' number 30 it has to be said.

    We have seen some really talented players step up and fill the void over the years only to see one 1000 yard back replaced for another. I long for the day when we can settle in and enjoy the ride with a 5-10 year career back. I thought that back was going to be Mike Anderson, I thought that back was going to be Clinton Portis ...

    Anyway, I look forward to the upcoming season, I look forward to sharing with the online Broncos community.

    Here is some more facts about me:

    Favourite movie: Shawshank Redemption & Remember the Titans
    Favourite band/musician: Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
    Favourite book: Too many to list
    Favourite console: Playstation - waiting on the PS3
    Favourite console game: The Madden series
    Favourite NFL player today: Mike Anderson - why did he leave?
    Favourite NFL player(s) of all-time: Terrell Davis, John Elway, Steve Young, Barry Sanders, Emmit Smith, Jerry Rice.
    Favourite English Premiere League team: Middlesborough
    Favourite English Premiere League player: Mark Schwarzer
    Favourite NBA team: Denver Nuggets
    Favourite NBA player: Carmello Anthony and love watching LeBron, Kobe and Wade.
    Favourite NBA player(s) of all time: Michael Jordan

    That will for now.

    Whilst I am a "newbie" I would love to be invited to take part in a NFL Fantasy league run by members here at the forum. I have been a Yahoo! player for many, many years and have done quite for myself in recent years. Look forward to the challenge if anyone is offering an invite.

    Cheers,

    There's plenty of fantasy leagues going up all the time on these boards.


    I'm already in 5 leagues and will probably start another in Yahoo! about half way through the preseason.

    You can join that one if you wish!

    I live near enough the CBD of Brisbane and no, I am not sure where Darren Lockyer lives. I am a season ticket holder though for Brisbane and have a few prized memerobilia pieces with Lockyer's signature on them too

    Cheers,
    Great first post. CP forthcoming when I have some to dish out.

    You have fine taste in American football teams but your Premier league team leaves a lot to be desired! Middlesborough! Why not a proper team like Liverpool?

    Lol just joking. Good to have some more Aussies on the board. If you want to talk soccer while you're here as well check out this thread in the Other Sports forum.

    Thanks for the welcome all ... as for Liverpool

    I can stomach them for one reason - they housed Craig Johnston back in the 80's and now have Harry Kewell. Thankfully your not a Manchester United fan

    Born and bred in Brisbane. I have missed only a handful of home games since '88 when we made our debut. Being an 11 y.o. impressionable kid, the marriage to the Denver Broncos was quite an easy one and one I have not regretted

    Hmm - can't say that I like your choice of smiley for my beloved reds but your dislike of our hated rivals "Manure" redeems you.
