Favorite Sports Team(s): Atlanta Falcons, Missouri Tigers
School/Occupation: Environmental Health & Safety
Life Story: An avid reader of books. If I don't know it, I want to know it, that is my M.O. pretty much. I became a Falcons fan back in 1998 when they beat Minnesota in the NFCCG. So you could say that my love of the Falcons spawned from my hatred of that Vikings team.
Things I like to do:
Read news blogs (Andrew Sullivan, Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, Paul Krugman, Glenn Greenwald)
Read fantasy football stuff, 365.
Reading books (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is what I am on right now)
I used to play video games competitively, in tournaments for Halo. Now I don't play too often, only Mass Effect 2 lately.
How you found the site: Google back in 2004. That was the year Atlanta took DeAngelo Hall, which I liked, but I wanted Tommie Harris or Sean Taylor instead. After a while of browsing I decided I couldn't hold back anymore and I decided to post. It took me a while to get into my groove here. I got schooled a few times, but if you knew me you would know I don't back down.
I remember most of the good old school stuff that went down here: Keak Da Sneek, Darrell *******, etc. Then there was the golden era of NFLDC that came about between 2007 and 2008: me, Toonster Geo, BBD, Bsaza, and more I cannot name. We all made each other better. It was truly a thing of beauty. The intellectual back and forth, it pushed us to be better posters, to take things deeper and more analytical, to challenge preconceived notions. Unfortunately, like all good things, it came to an end.

School/Occupation: Born in Cork, but my family moved over to England when I was young so I went to primary school in London for a few years. We moved back over to Limerick and spent the rest of primary and secondary school there. For college, I jumped back over to Oxford University to study medicine. They let you transfer to a London medical school for the last three years which are more clinically based, which is what I did, so I'm now 2/3 way through my first of three years at King's College University down here in London. Sportswise, growing up tennis was my life, most of my summers were spent being driven around the country by my Mum playing tournaments. It was busy but I miss it. Started playing rugby at around 14 and I've played it wherever I was ever since then, and also started watching and following American Football around the same time. When I came down to London this year I found out KCL had a football team so I actually got to play for the first time ever, which has been awesome. I envy you guys for being able to play it your whole life. I've been playing QB and OLB/DE (OLB in our 3-5 front, DE in our 5-3), and it's ridiculously fun. I was surprised at how genuinely fun it is, like a kid's game. And the team camaraderie is better than any team I've ever been on, I've really enjoyed it.
How I found the site: A friend knew I loved the draft and told me to check this place out, years ago. I didn't realise I'd be coming to it pretty much every day since. Scott's just too sexy I guess.
