    i'm guessing people will switch off visiting here in a few weeks once the finals are over (or just me?).

    So what is everyone doing to stay entertained until the preseason kicks off?

    For me, the NBA starts back in a month, so i'll be closely following, then a bit of cricket and probably a bit of UFC. Thats about it really.

    Long time wait before we get to see the boys back on the field again.

    Feel a little depressed thinking about it actually.

    Shit, why couldnt they have ended the bloody season on a high so i could watch the replays over and over again thinking there was hope!!!

    Like Lord Gnome, the EPL but instead of NFL, cricket - NZ and AU incoming tours, Australian Open tennis. And I do beer and spirits as well as wine so I'm more of a utility drinker.

    And I might watch a bit of A-League and ANBL but I don't really follow those competitions closely enough to really make that a "competition I follow when the NRL's off".

    And those boys in tight shorts - I'll do my usual "watch the AFL Grand Final" Saturday but have NFI what the Sam Hill is going on and should that player be in position? Isn't he off-Oh..No offside...um....Good leap, sir! etc...

    Christmas/New Years will bring about the World Darts Championship. There are a few other Darts tournaments in the lead up as well.
    I'll be following them with great interest.

    Cricket will also be getting its fair share of watching.

    The Nix take over my NRL time, and some cricket and international league peppered in there.

    I also enjoy arguing about politics, religion and any thing else that comes up on the forum.
