Sorry if this is a little rushed this week, but due to a hectic week
(and weekend). I've had little time to type this up. It just seems to
be getting harder and harder every week to get this done. I was also meant
to have done my, points conceded by a defence per quarter, up to week
4, but I haven't finished it off. So it'll have to wait until next week.
Thanks to Jon, Graham, Peter & Richard for this week's newsletter. I'm pretty sure that Paul Spence sent me something, but I can't find it. So if you did Paul? Many apologies, it should be somewhere at home, and I'll included what I can for next week.

Gerald to Graham : Thanks for sending in your stuff early, it does help a great deal. Especially as I've been so busty as of late. It looks like AB will be a very tough league again this season. I'm glad to see your getting some competition in the West, from the 49ers, as Paul's Falcons seem to have hit a bad patch.
Graham to Gerald : You've found a way to sabotage me and Jon in the prediction league haven't you? You refuse to predict your own result, then make sure you suffer a shock defeat or manage an upset win every week. And it's working.
Graham to Geoff/Steve : Great wins! Those East boys think they're soooo tough.
Graham to Paul S : You going to try and bypass the wildcard game this year and go straight for the divisional? Could bring a change of luck . . .
Graham to Jon : I don't think I've ever seen you lose three straight AB games. Have you? Still, at least it's the Cards this week (though we said that about the Saints . . .)
Graham to Gerald : If you were referring to the Bills & rams as going perfect until the Superbowl, we can't - we meet in week 12 (sadly for us, but probably not for you lot!)
Richard to All : Oilers, Dolphins, Bengals, Rams, Broncos, Pats, Seahawks and Jets. No easy games in a very difficult second half of the schedule.
Richard to Peter : I really enjoyed your weekly reviews. (with time, some should appear in this week's newsletter. Ed)
Richard to Terry : Excellent game in week 5 and you were very unlucky to lose.
Richard to Lewis : Your defence was tough. Good luck for the rest of the season.
Richard to Bruce : Good choice of Free Agent, you beat me to him as I was about to waive a player to give me the points to bid. (Thank good you didn't get him. Your squad is hard to beat now. Ed)
Richard to Graham : Your defence does not look too bad to me.
Richard to Dean : I think your defence is the best in AB. It may give more points and yards, but it has had to defend terrible field position all season. It looks like the San Diego situation in the NFL. Good luck with the rest of the season.
Richard to Jon : Your uncoached Dolphins team defeated me easily in week 6 in AW.
Gerald to Richard : So where are you moving to now? Down South to a more civilised place?
Jon to Steve : Impressive win over your successor!
Jon to All : Aaargh. The last time I lost 3 games in a row was in my first season. That was 6 seasons ago (so it's about time then? Ed).
Jon to Gerald : You're right. We predicated you to lose and you won.
Jon to Graham : Bet the scouting report made interesting reading?
Jon to Richard Ogg : Well, I pushed the Raiders close. At the end of the game I was on his 4 and trailing by 8 (with a 1st down). Good luck in the Championship - I think the Vikes are actually the defending champs.
Peter to All : No reports for a few week as I am on secondment to an area where I can't get any typing done. So if any reviews turn up in the next two months, it's with Gerald's assistance.
Peter to Derek : In my other Gameplan I recently came from 3 second half TDs down to take a 4th quarter lead, which was lost to a FG as time expired. Hurts doesn't it.
Well the WLAF has started again. Has anyone watched any games? I caught about 10 minutes of the Claymores game on Saturday, and they tanked whomever they were playing. I think it was a German team, but as there are now 3 in the league, it doesn't really narrow it down.
