Rugby Player Reacts to EZEKIEL ELLIOTT College Football and NFL Combine Highlights!



Yo! In this video I take my first look at EZEKIEL ELLIOTT. I watch some of his College Football highlights against Alabama State and his NFL Scouting Combine footage! At this point in my football watching career lol, I had no idea about anything to do with college football, and definately had no idea about how good Alabama State were on defense. The fact he set a career high against them also is phenomenal!

Thanks for clicking on this video and checking out my YouTube channel! I’m currently on a journey. A journey of discovery and excitement as I document my entire journey into the world of American Football from the very start, right here on YouTube. I’ve called it, “Rugby Player Reacts” and I’m having the time of my life.

I decided to venture out of my comfort zone which is rugby and rugby-league, to pursue a different sport! One that I had always been interested in but thought too complicated and too late in life for me to give it a proper go. At the age of 27 I decided to trust my gut and dive head first into learning all that I could about the sport of American football, before it was too late! For whatever reason, whilst doing so I wanted to record my reaction to it and make a YouTube series about it.

I am an sports fanatic myself and I had hoped that people would get a kick out of someone from a rugby background trying to not only learn the game of American football, but eventually play as well. That’s the plan for me!

During the series I watch and learn with the camera rolling and have created quite a community of people that are also interested in bridging the gap between the two sports which is absolutely amazing to see and makes me happy to no end. I watch a video or two and give my unbiased and unfiltered reaction to whatever it is I’m watching from a rugby based perspective which has turned out to be quite unique lol.

I know rugby like the back of my hand and I really enjoy watching fans of American Football see our great game, try to work it out and give their reaction and so I thought it was about time we switched things up! I’m so glad I did because I’m having the time of my life doing it and appreciate you being here!

STORY TIME: NFL player planning perfect proposal.



My rookie year was one of the hardest years of my entire life. But, being able to plan my proposal to Charlotte made it a lot easier. When planning this proposal, every single detail was deeply thought out because I knew how important this day was going to be for us. I’m grateful that I am able to look back and see the creative and thoughtful heart God has blessed me with and I hope to encourage other men to do the same when it is time to get down on one knee.

Rugby Player Reacts to EZEKIEL ELLIOTT NFL 2016 Rookie Season Highlights!



Yo! In this video I take another look at an NFL player by the name of EZEKIEL ELLIOTT! I take a look at his 2016 rookie season highlights and what a season it was.

Sports Betting Systems – Increase Your Odds

No matter what type of gambling you like to engage in, common sense says that developing a system will increase your odds of gaining a return on your wager. This theory holds true for most people interested in sports betting; sticking to a certain set of practices will in the end help you realize gains over the long term, rather than losses.

Before we start talking about some sports betting systems, it is important to note that this logic is only partially true. In fact, a betting system can at best help you to reduce your losses over the long term while gambling on sports; the best possible realistic exit for any system is an even split of wins and losses over the long haul.

The reason for this brings down to the professionals, by which we mean the professionals who really DO make a huge profit month in and month out, through history, in sports betting. Those professionals, of course, are the bookmakers.

Using statistical analysis, bookmakers can always determine which betting systems are currently being used by bettors, and they always adjust the odds accordingly. They may make a home game split a poor value bet in order to compensate, or begin to adjust the lines. Whatever the measures, you can bet that the sports books have thought up ways to counter systems.

With that said, there are systems that can be used to increase your chances of profit over the long term in sports betting, but they greatly have to do with personal control and strategies when betting. The good thing about this approach is that you can use it on any given sport, so it applies universally. Let's take a look at some money wise ways to approach your sports betting strategy.

o Establish a bankroll: Before the beginning of the season, the playoffs, or whatever event you wish to wager on, you have to establish a bankroll. This bankroll will be based on the money you feel you can LOSE during the course of the betting season. Once you lose that money, it is very important that you stop betting or you will find yourself in a lot of trouble, very quickly.

o Do not chase bad bets. One of the biggest temptations for those engaging in sports betting is to try to make up money they lost while wagering on certain games. This is almost always a recipe for disaster. If you lose all your games on betting on weekend NFL games, do not try to make up for it with a bet on Monday night!

Those are the important foundations for any sports betting strategy, and they will help mitigate your losses on any losing season.

Now, let's take a look at some strategies to apply to your general sports betting endeavors.

o Research! In order to make a good bet (meaning, a bet that has the best chance of winning), you need to know all you can about the game in question. That means doing a lot of research. Know who is playing what position, their health and mental status, the record of the teams against each other, other records, even who the officials are. Good research is your most effective tool when it comes to placing a good bet.

o Watch out for tired teams! In a lot of sports, teams play back to back games. If they are playing a fresh team, this can factor into their ability to play. It does not always work, but most times a team playing its second game in two nights will have a reduced chance of winning.

o Betting series: This strategy really only applies to baseball betting, where teams may play three or more games against each other in a row. In these cases it is usually possible to predict which team will come out with the most wins in the series, and that's an easier call than game to game.

Of course, for all those strategies, you have to keep in mind that the bookmakers are just as aware of the factors as you are. They will adjust the odds accordingly, which is something else you have to be aware of.

University of Maryland (UM) Terrapins (Terps) Football Players Taken in 2010 NFL Draft – 2 Selected

The University of Maryland (UM) Terrapins (Terps) college football program had two players taken in the 2010 NFL Draft that was held in April. The school based in College Park, Maryland had two athletes selected by National Football League (NFL) franchises in the annual draft and those two men are:

  • Bruce Campbell (offensive lineman) – selected in the fourth round with the 106th overall pick by the Oakland Raiders
  • Nolan Carroll (cornerback) – picked in the fifth round by the Miami Dolphins as the 145th overall player selected

The Maryland Terrapins compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and are proud to send disciplined young men on to play football at the next level. For athletes like Bruce and Nolan hearing their names called during the NFL Draft is a dream come true and the University of Maryland prides itself in playing a role in turning those dreams into reality.

Bruce Campbell, born in 1988, is a 6’6″ 314 pound offensive lineman that played tackle in high school and college but is expected to at least start out as an interior offensive lineman at the guard position with the Oakland Raiders. Despite having the height to play offensive tackle the initial reports from the Raiders are that they would prefer to ease Bruce into their offense at a position that lends itself to a smoother transition.

Campbell is slated to wear number 74 next year for the NFL team in Oakland and Raiders head coach Tom Cable is excited about the upside of his fourth round draft selection. Coach Cable hopes to get Bruce on the field early and often as the Raiders for years now have been trying to fill a void on their offensive line. Many football analysts agree that the root cause of the recent offensive woes of the Oakland franchise can be traced back to a porous front five.

It can be argued that Nolan Carroll, the other University of Maryland 2010 NFL Draft selection, is in many ways an opposite type of player from his former teammate Bruce Campbell. Carroll plays defense whereas Campbell plays offense and furthermore while Bruce has a large 6’6″ 314 pound frame Nolan is a much more pedestrian size at 5’11” and 204 pounds.

Before being picked up by the Miami Dolphins to add youth and speed to their secondary Nolan grew up in the state of Florida. Nolan Carroll was born and raised in Green Cove Springs, Florida which is in the northeastern part of the state. After spending five years in Maryland during his stint in college Nolan and his parents (who still live in Florida) are surely excited about having him back in the Sunshine State.

Top Three Current NFL Quarterbacks

Everyone has their own opinions about who’s the best in anything. Personally, I think these three are without a doubt, the best in the league. Not only their stats, but also the way they manage the game, their decision making, and their leadership abilities. To me, quarterback is the single most important position in football, so to have one of the three best is definitely a huge help to your team. Not to say that one person makes a team or wins football games, but looking at the team of one of these top 3 that is now missing him, might give some fuel to the opposite side of that argument.

3. Aaron Rodgers

Some may say I have a biased opinion here, which may be true. At any rate, I think he is an elite quarterback. He has quite possibly the prettiest deep ball in the game, he has EXCELLENT decision making on the field, in fact throwing zero interceptions through two games this season. This year he has the second highest QB rating at 126.4, and a very impressive completion percentage of 70.8%. Through only two games, he has 620 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. Not having any real “superstar” receivers, aside from Greg Jennings, he still makes things happen. Don’t get my wrong, I think the Packers top 3 or 4 receivers are great, but none of them have reached superstar status yet. Rodgers spreads the ball around and wins football games. Last year, his third season starting, he got himself a Super Bowl ring, he now has as many as Brett Favre!

2. Tom Brady

There seem to be a lot of people who really dislike Tom Brady. It seems most people either love him or they hate him, it doesn’t seem like there is much in between. Whether you love him or you hate him, you can’t deny the numbers he puts up. Incredible decision making, in my humble opinion the best 2-minute drill in football, He stays calm in the pocket, and doesn’t let himself get flustered when he makes mistakes. This season, he has been putting up very high numbers, in typical Tom Brady fashion. Best in the league QB rating of 128.0 and best in the league total passing yards with a total of 944, and a league high 10.68 yards per attempt. Brady is another QB who doesn’t really have a “superstar” receiver. Yes, he had Randy Moss, but not anymore. He gets it done with hard-working receivers, just like Aaron Rodgers.

1. Peyton Manning

I don’t think a discussion about great quarterbacks can be made without mentioning this name. The best QB currently playing, quite possibly the best ever. I have never seen a field general quite like this one. He virtually (probably literally) doesn’t need an offensive coordinator. He can read defensive schemes like no one else, calling his plays on the field and usually with outstanding results. He is an accurate passer with excellent decision making and an unmatched awareness of what is going on around him. The only drawback is it seems that once he throws an interception, he tends to get flustered and sometimes can’t recover from it. His neck injury this year and the resulting caliber of the Indianapolis Colts shows that one person CAN make a team. An overall passer rating of 94.9, 54,828 yards, with a 64.9% completion percentage in his career so far. Until this year, Manning had not missed a start since 1998, 208 consecutive starts! Not only is he amazing, he is tough and resilient. He will go down as one of the greats of all time, if not THE best ever.

Thanks for reading!

How You Can Win Big Money With Sports Betting: SMU vs. UAB

Have you ever wondered how the Sports Betting "smart money" became the smart money? Do you wonder what the sports betting smart money does differently than the amateurs?

Here's an example of I game I analyzed, and how I went about deciding which team had the edge. Once you can identify an edge, it's easy to make money with sports betting:

UAB vs. SMU-5

First, let's start by pointing out that while one of these teams is a powerhouse, or even a top 25 team. UAB is 3-5 SU this season, and is averaging only 19 points per game against teams like Marshall, Troy, and Rice to name a few. Miraculously, UAB opened their season against Oklahoma and only lost 24-17 in a game where they were 24 point underdogs. Since that game, UAB is only 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games, and that was when they beat up on Troy (who ever heard of a college named Troy ??) 21-3.

On the other hand, SMU is playing at home tonight, and they've done well well ATS this season, going 4-3 ATS. SMU is 6-3 ATS in their last nine games, and also 6-3 ATS in their last nine home games.

As with any college game, it's always smart to see how well teams do at home. The home field, depending on who is playing, can be a very important tactical advantage. My impression going into this game was that SMU had a determined home field advantage that would make them a decent pick going up against a poor UAB team.

So how did my initial impression compare to the actual reality? Does SMU have a real home-field advantage?

How about this stat -aside from going 6-3 ATS in their last 9 home games, SMU has scored 31, 55, 45, and 40 points in their last 4 home games. In their last 4 home games with betting lines, SMU has outscored their opponents on average 31-13 per game, while the point spread in these games has averaged only SMU being favored by -3 points.

In other words, in SMU's last 4 home games, not only have they won ATS, but they beat the SPREAD by an average of about 15 points per game.

The last piece of the puzzle is UAB's record playing away. They're only 3-7 SU in their last 10 road games, and 5-5 ATS. They were actually shut out by Georgia a few weeks back, and lost SU to Rice 34-33 in a game in which they were favored.

The bottom line is that everything points to SMU being able to, and more importantly, inclined to, running up the score at home against UAB. I look for SMU to win this one 41-28.

Although I am not "officially" recommend betting the over / under on this game, I will tell you that I would lean towards taking the Over 49 1/2 if I was forced to take a side. Sometimes in a game like this it's not a bad idea to split the amount you were going to bet on the game into two smaller bets, one on the game and one on the over / under. This way you are risking the same amount, but your risk is spread between two relatively independent outcomes, the game itself and the over / under.

As you can see from the above analysis, it is important to dig deep into the stats to identify any patterns. In this case, the stats showed that SMU was a very strong team at home, and that UAB was very weak on the road. As it turned out, SMU won 22-9, keeping UAB out of the end zone all night.

Hockey Fights

Hockey fights are often misunderstood, but they are an accepted part of the game. They are not approved of, nor discouraged. The practice of fighting in hockey is permitted by many of the world's professional men's leagues, including the National Hockey League. But, it is not allowed in women's hockey at any level.

Hockey fights are more of a sideshow than a genuine display of emotion and intensity. Sometimes, the fighting goes beyond control. In most cases, players who fight are penalized equally or and may be ejected.

Most of the hockey lovers love to watch fights at hockey games. They know that the game involves reasonable body contact and occasional fighting. These fights serve many purposes in the game. The main purpose is to protect their own team members. Hockey players fight each other to mark their territory to show ownership of the game. The dropping of the gloves and the sticks is the first signal that fighting has begun. The fighter who defeated the other is the winner.

Both teams keep sturdy players as enforcers to offend the opponents. They are designated players to fight in the middle of the game. The enforcer's role is generally to engage the offending or provoking the opponent into a fight. They are well paid and they know how to fight and entertain the spectators.

Although hockey fights are brutal and uncoordinated, they play a legitimate role in keeping certain players' behavior in line. It can stabilize scores and revenge the proper way. The National Hockey League, American Hockey League, ECHL, and other notable minor leagues have rules regarding penalies for such infractions. Despite the terrible consequences of the hockey fights, most of the hockey game lovers consider fighting skill as a measure of all-around hockey talent.

Miami Dolphins 2008 NFL Team – What to Watch Out Live Online and Their Game Schedule

Do you plan to watch live or online the Miami Dolphins 2008 NFL Season? The Miami Dolphins shake their heads off when the dismaying results of 1-15 record came about after the 2007 NFL Season. Two names are really missed by the Miami Dolphins fans; one is Marino when he was the quarterback plus Shula as the head coach. It was a hard time for them that is why this season there were changes that occurred. Bill Parcell named as the Executive VP of Football Operations, also the new GM in the name of Jeff Ireland, and then came Tony Sparano as the head coach.

The greatest challenge for everyone here is for the new officials to turn and watch live and online Miami Dolphins 2008 NFL Team back to its glorious days as division champions. The team selected Jake Long as their first pick overall in the NFL draft. Jake is known for his consistent offensive abilities. When it comes to leadership, Chad Pennington cave some light for tried and tested leadership on them. Another key player in this team is Ronnie Brown who started the season great, but it stopped due to his injury in the knees. With the combination of these players, the team is very positive that they will definitely catch up.

Miami Dolphins 2008 NFL Team Schedule
Sunday Sept 7 1:00 pm ET New York Jets
Sunday Sept 14 4:15 pm ET Arizona Cardinals
Sunday Sept 21 1:00 pm ET New England Patriots
Sunday Oct 5 1:00 pm ET San Diego Chargers

Sunday Oct 26 1:00 pm ET Buffalo Bills
Sunday Nov 2 4:05 pm ET Denver Broncos
Sunday Nov 9 1:00 pm ET Seattle Seahawks

Sunday Dec 14 1:00 pm ET San Francisco 49ers
Sunday Dec 21 1:00 pm ET Kansas City Chiefs

Finding That Perfect NFL Throwback Jersey

Remember Howie Long? No, not the bespectacled and bookish Howie Long that sits behind a desk every Sunday on the Fox network, trading barbs with Terry Bradshaw. We’re talking the tough, driven, body slamming, hot-tempered Howie Long that led the Oakland Raiders to their Super Bowl victory in 1984 and who perfected that great uppercut move called “the rip”? That Howie Long – remember him?

Anyone who’s a fan of the glory days of the NFL will remember that Howie Long, and all the great bad boys of football like him. And what better way to celebrate your love of the game than with an NFL throwback jersey?

Wearing one of these great NFL throwback jerseys is a good way to show your love for classic teams or great players from the past, back before football became so politically charged and teams had to bow to filthy-rich owners. Back when the men were as tough as nails and had nicknames like The Fridge and The Bus. When you knew the players for what they accomplished on the field, not for who they were dating off the field. When the players cared about the game, not just their stats and signing bonuses and what commercial endorsements they could get. Owning an NFL throwback jersey shows that you appreciate the true game of football in all its rough and tumble glory.

If you want to choose an NFL throwback jersey for yourself, get one that has special meaning for you. If you remember when the Cowboys were unstoppable, then proudly wear the name Aikman on your back. If the endurance of John Elway is what you look up to, then get a Denver number 7 for yourself.

The key to choosing just the right NFL throwback jersey is to make it personal to you, not just what the sporting goods store has on clearance. Celebrate those games you saw and the players you loved.

How To Deal With A Stubborn Spouse In 3 Simple Steps

At some point, anyone in a relationship has to learn how to deal with a stubborn spouse. Even though your wife or husband may not really be stubborn in nature, there are situations where this trait may surface and it’s better to be prepared in handling it.

Given that every person is unique, each one has many different characteristics that may conflict with that of another individual. A partner who isn’t willing to give in and has to have their way can mean trouble in a relationship.

If you have the same dilemma, the following are steps you can take to deal with a stubborn spouse.

Step 1: Understand Why Your Partner Is Being Stubborn.

Maybe you aren’t seeing the logic behind your spouse’s decisions. Try to see it in their perspective. Sometimes our judgment gets clouded by anger or frustration.

What are you missing? When you are learning how to deal with a stubborn spouse, remember that being in a relationship means you are ready to work out your differences and make sacrifices.

You are bound to have some differences; but trying to understand where your partner is coming from is the first step to resolving these.

Step 2: Pick Your Battles.

When your spouse just won’t back down, don’t waste your time trying to argue, nag, yell or complain otherwise.

If it means too much to your partner, let them know that you support them this time. Make them understand, however, that when the time comes that you are in the same position and it means more to you, you would ask their support in return. Choose your priorities and be willing to “lose” the rest.

Step 3: Take A Positive Approach.

The key to knowing how to deal with a stubborn spouse is to avoid hostility or violence of any kind. Fighting or freaking out is never the answer. Hot tempers will only bring about verbal or maybe even physical attacks.

The important thing is to keep a cool and level head, so that you would be able to talk or negotiate the issue calmly and reasonably. There is nothing a good talk can’t solve.

One way you can tip the balance in your favor is to present new evidence or proof that confirms the validity of your point. Oftentimes, ego gets in their way; but when you present new proof, their agreement will be perceived in light of that evidence and not because they changed their mind.

Learning how to deal with stubborn spouse, especially when they tend to become narrow-minded, can be challenging. However, be patient and keep in mind that learning how to handle this power struggle can guarantee a happy and successful relationship.
