Opposite for me. Once cycling season starts properly I don't miss the NFL too much. Spring classics in March/April, Giro d'Italia for 3 weeks in May, Tour de France for 3 weeks in July, Vuelta a España for 3 weeks mid-August to early September and there you have it, week 1 of the regular season is upon us. They are good sports to follow together actually because they are almost opposites for season/offseason - just a bit of a clash in September/early October and nothing much from now till late Feb, otherwise perfect. So now is really the time when neither of my favourite sports are on. I've tried to compensate this year by recording loads of college games as though I like it I just don't have time to watch it nowadays at the same time as the NFL. Maxed out the BT box with about 50 games recorded so it should both fill the sporting void and allow me to do a bit of draft scouting. Now, who's got a good 3-4 OLB who has declared?
