Guys, I'm going to be spending considerably less time on the internet for the foreseeable future, and will not be able to post on this thread as I have in the past.  I will try to maintain occasional updates, but no guarantees.

The best plays of 2021

I want to point out the Kicking plays.  The league has ranked #10 and #9 what I think were the two most memorable plays of the year.  In fact, I don't think we will ever see a better coffin corner kick for the rest of our lives as what we see at #10.
