Default Why Broncos?

Hi everyone!

My name is Oli or (Monty is my nickname), and I am a Broncos fan from Sheffield. I have been registered on here for ages and never posted, as evidenced by the fact that my favourite player in my profile was still Brandon Marshall!

I have been a Bronco since midway through the 2008 season, when we still had Cutler. Not quite sure why I got into them exactly, but I am sure it was because I loved playing as them on Madden. I haven't missed a game in 3 seasons, thanks to Gamepass, and used online streams before that.

I haven't yet been to Denver, but I am going to save up and go next season.

So, to get to know of some of you better, when and why did you choose Denver?

Looking forward to chatting with you all more throughout what is going to be, hopefully, a great season!

HEY Monty,

Funny bit like you, I've been on here a while and have only just began posting.

As for Denver, I started watching NFL in the mid to late 80's for nearly everyone in that era, you either glory hunted or were drawn to someone you liked to watch. For me, it was John Elway and I've been hitched ever since. .... yes.... even during the Tebow era(!?).

In 1986 we started the season 6-0 and was drawn to the whole Elway thing. Been a loyal and passionate Broncos fan every since. So many ups and downs in that time, the agony of the 3 Super Bowl losses! The glory days of the Davis era and back to back world championships!

Was at Wembley in 2010 to see them V the 49ers, and plan to go to Denver one day and catch a game at Milehigh.

Enjoying the manning era and hoping for another Lombardi trophy come Feb!

It was Jake Plummer against San Diego that started it all off for me, it was a new years eve game and I was staying up, just happened to stumble upon the NFL on sky sports and I've been obsessed ever since!

Favorite memory so far has to be the Wembley game against the 49'Ers, even though we lost it was just crazy for me to see the NFL in the UK AND my team playing! I really want to go out to Denver to watch the Broncos but money and time seem to keep stopping me!

I was at the Wembley game too...it was crazy to see the Broncos over here. Like you said, shame the Broncos lost, but was a great day anyway.

that was it My friend had a Sega with Madden a couple months before. I was pretty good at it & always played with Denver. I remember seeing that playoff game advertised for a Saturday night on C4. Thought I'd watch to see if the real Denver were any good. The rest is history

Im sure you will find the game winning drive from that game on You Tube somewhere. You tube have loads of old footage from games in the 80's and 90's. However you need to have a good look through the search results as they can sometimes be a few hidden gems a few pages in.

in fact here you go:

I got into football back in 2000, thanks to Madden 2001 on the PS2. My mate bought it and it’s all we played. I became a Broncos fan roughly a year later.

2 of my other mates picked the Tennessee Titans as the cover of Madden 2001 had Eddie George on the cover, but I didn’t feel any real pull towards the team so just kept playing, but normally picked the Broncos because of Terrell Davis, I could terrorise them with his running ability.

It wasn’t until September 2001 until I picked the Broncos as my team. My aunty had recorded the highlights of the Broncos against the Giants, and that game sold them to me.

Been a fan ever since, saw them when they played the international series over here, even though they lost, and try and watch every game I can. Would love to visit the Mile High city but it’s not a cheap trip.

Some great stories! Some great pics too! I was at Piccadilly Circus in 2010 as well! Was only 5ft from Elway.

So want to go to Denver and watch them at home!
