PostSubject: Dallas Spurs (David)   Mon Jul 20, 2015 4:11 pm

I just joined the forum and thought I would introduce myself.  

I am in my late 50s (ouch), retired after a long career in  the financial markets in London, England.

I am a Brit from the UK and moved full time  to the USA a few years ago. I recently moved to live in Dallas Texas and so far really enjoy life in the Lone Star state.

I am married with 2 adult kids. My daughter is married and lives in NYC , my son works in Sydney Australia .So between visiting the 2 of them my wife and I get to travel a lot.

My daughter is pregnant and is expecting around Thanksgiving day so we are going to be Grand Parents . A pretty scary thought as i have just got used to being a Parent!

I have been following the NFL since the early 80s but only discovered fantasy football 3 years ago but now I cant imagine life without it. A uk friend of mine asked me to join a free league hosted on the NFL site in May of 2013 ( 9 man team , regular scoring etc) and following the draft I was completely hooked. I joined a few dynasty premium sites and have tried to immerse myself with as much info as i can. I look forward to each season as I to continue my education and attempt to compete.

I go to as many live NFL games as possible and this season have season tickets for The Cowboys .My ambition is  to go to as many stadiums as I can while visiting Cities within the USA and getting to know the country better.

This will be my 3rd season competing in Fantasy Football and I have really improved in my understanding (it wasn't hard as my knowledge was at zero ). A steep learning curve but its really worth it.

I “know” a few of your members (Kingdom City and DDT) and Andy has done some exceptional graphic work for me in the past . Kingdom City Growlers suggested I join the forum and try to get into the “Minor League” .Quite honestly if KCG feels so strongly about RW then already thats good enough for me . I also know how committed Andy is as a commish . I really like the look of your site not only the graphics but the forum and the obvious desire you all have to keep Roster Wars as the premier league site

I am really hopeful of being a founder member of the Redraft “Minor League “ however I really will understand if you think my level of experience isnt what you need but you can always have fun kicking this Brit around the Fantasy field !

Big Tottenham Hotspur fan for my sins!

Cool. I'm from Leicester - never moved. Jealous - living in the USA with family in Australia sounds pretty ideal to me!

Spurs.  wedgie

Welcome, nice that Jon has a comrade in arms.    

Arsenal fan myself. :)

and Jon ... just joined my first soccer fantasy league even though you said not to join... In the midst of my draft right now.  haha  But, it is H2H (which I like) vs. best XI or rotisserie style.  Maybe we'll be able to merge NFL type fantasy with EPL.

Thanks for the welcome. Arsxxx fan no! I am sure during the season I will be able to convince you to switch allegiances .

Funny you mention Soccer Fantasy leagues. I had to stop entering them as i seriously couldnt stop picking spurs players and refused to pick Arsxxx one. Needless to say i always lost laughing

Nice.  Well, at least you had Kane.


I just made my first ever picks of a 14 teamer... I was at the turn.. so I had 1.14 and 2.01   (Sigurdson and Benteke)... So nervous about Benteke going to be ruined by the Reds, but whatever.   It was him or Giroud (who is probably safer, but less upside).    Oh well, it'll be interesting to see how it goes.  

Funny you had to stop entering them.. I'm thinking I may start getting tooooo into it as I'm bored with the NFL.  haha.

I like your picks. I think Sigurdsen is still underated and Bentake will score at Liverpool.

Couple of players you might want to consider later down the list. Milner at Liverpool now and as a sleeper if he is cheap the new Spurs right back Kieren Trippier, i read that while at burnley he had the most crosses of any player all season. But he has to be a late pick sleeper as he needs to get in the team ahead of walker.

Welcome David. Always a pleasure to meet another poor soul willing to step into Roster Wars. Even if you only have intentions of Training Camp it would be cool if you were to be involved around the boards.

cheers

Glad you're here, David. A long time Brit relocating to Texas reeks of a comedic movie script. So much so that I'm sure it's been done and I'm gonna find it! Have to ask...of all the options in the US, why Texas?

Hope you stick around and enjoy RW.

My life has been a comedic movie script lol3

As to why Dallas. We actually moved to Florida initially and spent a long time there . Florida lifestyle was great but after living in London and spending a lot of time in NY and Sydney we started to really miss the culture of a big city.

We wanted to be in a suburb with relatively good weather and so after a lot of trips it came down to San Diego or Dallas. I just couldnt pass up the cheap housing prices in Texas and of course zero state income tax and so we moved here almost a year ago.

We really miss the beach in Florida and our friends there but i have to say i love the sport scene here in Dallas. We have bought season tix for the Cowboys and we went to a lot of Basketball, Baseball and hockey games over the last 9 months. The people are very friendly and so far we are enjoying it but its early days. I dont know if its going to be a forever home but so far its fun and each day is filled with lots to do and see.
