Where does the name 49ers come from?

The name comes from gold miners who came to California in 1849 during the "California Gold Rush". They were called the forty-niners. The San Francisco Bay Area was a gold mining hot spot.

Leeds Rhinos are better. Leeds United don't even play in the top division in the EPL.

Up 'n' downs pal ups 'n' downs every team has them ............

Except Man U, they always win. The EPL is only 4 or 5 good clubs. Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle. In Australia soccer fans only support those clubs. Even though Liverpool haven't won a major title in over 20 years and Newcastle in a very long time, it's always the same teams on top of the table.

Who told you Newcastle were a good club?

They have never won anything for about 50 years.

Scum, Liverpool & Arsenal are the biggest teams in England. Chelsea got bought by a Russian billionaire so they pretty much bought success for the last decade. Manchester City now have untold riches due to wealthy arab owners. They look set to be a successful team for years to come.

Leeds are one of the Top 8 clubs in England. Used to be one of the top 4 but we've been badly run by a vile old crook by the name of Ken Bates for the last 9 years. He stole all our money and used the club to finance his lifestyle of private jets and expensive lunches on the French Riviera whilst our club suffered administration and very nearly liquidation.

We're on the way back now though. We expect to be promoted to the Premier League in the next couple of years. Once we're back where we belong we will again be one of the top clubs in England

The Panthers are from Charlotte, North Carolina. It's on the east coast of the U.S.

If you want to watch the game online, http://firstrowus1.eu/ is a pretty good site. The game starts 10:05 a.m our time, which I think is 6:05 p.m. your time if you're in England.
f**k the Seattle s**thawks and f**k Dicky s**tman.

Don't ignore the fact that the epl is only made up of a few good teams. The other teams are average and will never win the competition. At least rugby league has a salary cap, therefore every team is on an even playing field.

Thanks. I'll watch my first ever NFL game cheering for the 49ers.
