"When you become a part of a new family, you definitely adopt their way of life, customs and football teams if you’re in their world. I don’t get the Roethlisberger guy in the commercial however. That just seems strange that someone would adopt a team like that with no familial motivations."

Denver Broncos legend, Ring of Famer and all around cool dude, Tom Nalen joins us again for a rousing South Stands Denver Fancast.

We get great insight into the current Jay Cutler situation and the past Jay Cutler situation involving Jake Plummer.

We talk some great Broncos with Tom, and he gives us a glimpse into what's going on with this severe shift in the offensive gameplan.

Lots of old man talk and we get to the bottom of the crazy music these kids listen to today.

Colin is hot for teacher, a great Tweep of the Week, and Tom tells us why he's not on Twitter and why he doesn't play fantasy football anymore.

Big thanks to Tom for taking the time, he's a gent for coming on the show and we miss him on the airwaves.


Should the Colorado Avalanche move Varly or Pickard?

Written by Tuesday, 16 December 2014 13:12

"Roy prefers to ride an exceptional starter in net and use his backup goalie as truly a backup, or to give the starter a blow once in a great while. When Varlamov is healthy, there’s no doubt that he is that guy for Colorado, effectively wasting Calvin Pickard on the bench or in Lake Erie."

It was a better week than most for the bettors in our $10K season-long NFL wager-off. None of the five lost big and a couple won big. Week fifteen is in the books and we're heading towward the post-season.

South Stands Denver Fancast, Show 201

Where do we begin? How about the beginning. Long time friend of the show, ESPN Denver and's Cecil Lammey (@cecillammey) joins us for an epic slice of podcasting, clocking in at just under two hours.

We cover it all. The Denver Broncos, fantasy football, parenting, and there's a hard rock/heavy metal quiz for the ages at the end.

We ask Cecil point blank about Manning's arm, the abrupt switch to the heavy run game and he dishes heavily on the Broncos and life as a rising star in the sports media world (our words, not his). But inbetween there's comic book talk nad nearly everything else discussed.

Always a pleasure to have Cecil in and he doesn't disappoint. Settle in and enjoy.


In the NFL every game counts more at this time of the year and it's no different in our $10K season-long NFL wager-off. Our five wagerers continue to learn how tough betting the NFL can be ... but a couple of them killled in week 14.


"The sale is, according to Denver Post television reporter, Joanne Ostrow, likely to cause dozens of Lincoln Financial employees to lose their jobs."

Show 200. We started as the McDaniels era was getting under way and we out lasted that bastard. What a medium length, fairly normal, trip it's been.

Our big guests our coming next week so we decided to do show 200 with the guys who got you there. 

We reminisce a bit but we first go deep into the Dater situation, we talk a little Broncos and then we spend a lot of time talking about killing black people and how fucked up the world is. It's not as depressing as it sounds. A great Tweep of the Week, some more Broncos and a promise that that next 200 will be even better. 

Thanks to everyone for sticking with us this long. It's been a pleasure.


Godspeed, Adrian Dater. Godspeed.

"Well, the communications must have been real. She was, if her Twitter account was to be believed, quite upset with Dater for his actions and she launched a personal campaign to see that he was fired. And apparently he was."

Introducing Virgil Green: Broncos catalyst

Written by Wednesday, 03 December 2014 13:57

"That’s because, as time progresses, the more it looks to me like the catalyst to Denver’s newfound running attack happens to be a man who plays the game the same way as Daniel Fells. I’m talking about the Broncos’ other-other tight end: Virgil Green."

"Deadspin has once again become interested in Dater’s exploits on Twitter. This time the site was contacted by a female hockey fan who provided screen grabs of some rather creepy DMs the hockey writer allegedly sent her."

Most of the wagerers continue to tread water in our $10K season-long NFL wager-off, but this week one won really big and another lost the same way.


Manning needs to 'let go and let the running game'

Written by Monday, 01 December 2014 06:50

"The inability to run the ball lets defenses know exactly what you’re going to do next. It’s football 101 and is as obvious as a 6’4” man in a dress with an adam’s apple the size of a kiwi."

Welcome back to FantasyVille! Unpack your bags, stay awhile and talk some fantasy football with your hosts Colin Daniels and John Reidy.

The fellas explain the layoff, talk controversial trades and whiny players who can't fathom the rules that are accessible and easy to read.

Then there's a nice chunk dedicated to Daily Fantasy and a long time denier of "Daily is Gambling" finally gives up the onion skin charade.

We talk about this week's games including the awesome slate of Thanksgiving matchups. And with that, enjoy the show and Happy Thanksgiving.


What have we learned since starting our first ever $10K season-long NFL wager-off?? It's hard, that's what. We're not even paying a "vig" and most of our wagerers have struggled to stay above water. Still we did have one winner this week!
