"The playoffs, assuming the Nuggets make it there, will offer only more of what we have all gotten used to - a rapid exit for an undermanned Denver team."

Our intreped bettors have been given $10,000 imaginary dollars each with which to gamble this NFL season. Each week they must pony up at least 10% but no more than 50% of their bankrolls. Each was profitable in week three. Can their success carry over to this week? Here's how they wagered.
After starting the season off losing money quickly, our five imaginary sports bettors enjoyed more success in week three - and our contest has a new leader.

The Broncos played a great game on Sunday. Well, a great quarter, anyway, versus their newest rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. Relive a modern classic of a game through the Tweets of media types and fouth-mouthed fans alike. Our apologies for the blurriness. We're working on it.
Will the Broncos help ease our pain by marching into Seattle and winning despite their decided home field advantage?

The best thing about football season is Christina, @YesWhatISayGoes on Twitter. Her prediction videos are always awesome but this is her best work yet. Enjoy.
And suddenly it's week three!
Our five intrepid bettors have each been given an imaginary $10,000 with which to bet lines and over / unders all NFL season long. So far none of them has set the world on fire and most of them have been taxed pretty badly. There are a number of intersting match ups on the board. Here's how the fellahs wagered for week three.

I wasn't listening to the Press Box show on Mile High Sports radio this morning as I normally do for one really simple reason: the signal was down when I tried to tune the station in. It seems to happen about once a month in the morning that MHS' signal will be nothing but static. I guess I missed out on the real static, though. Once the signal returned Press Box co-host Oren Lomena said "Denver's not a good sports town, it's a bandwagon sports town."
I know trolling and that's some good trolling.
Not surprisingly, Lomena took a beating on Twitter by 50 or so not-so-happy Denver fans. Personally, I think Denver is a great sports town. But I can see where Lomena was coming from. We tend to be front-runners where every team but the Broncos is concerned. But who can blame us. Denver is a beatiful place and we have lots to do here. Teams kind of have to "earn" good attendence. This isn't some filthy East Coast city where people will show up to watch a team like the Knicks just because there's nothing better to do. We will respond to success.
A bandwagon sports town? That would be Seattle, Mr. Lomena. But nice job firing up Broncos Country.
What is the NFL about? It's not about the misdeeds of its players. It's not about money (well, yes it is). It's about this. What a wonderfully timed emotional display from two awesome performers on Thursday Night Football.
Welcome to our newest feature, Your Denver Sports #TBT. This Thursday we glance back to December, 2001, when an angry Dan Issel, then Nuggets head coach, walked off the court for the final time. Issel's race-laden insult "go have another beer you drunk mothe****ing Mexican " resulted in his dism"issel" days later.
