Newsletter for Sept / Oct .
At 3-0 the Ravens sit on top of the AFC North a game ahead of the Bengals and two ahead on the Steelers. We have the second highest scoring offence in the NFL. A long way to go, but you can’t help thinking, “Is this the year?”
On TV: This week we are live on SKY Sports, at New England with a 6pm kick-off (programme starts 5.30pm). Next week we also feature live on SKY with the home game verses the Bengals (6pm).

The problems with the site were resolved in time for the Browns game. We’ve also added to the site with the addition of an Irish flag and a link to WNST. Things spotted by Nestor when he went to the site whilst live on his show.
NFL Wembley 2009

Ravens trip in 2009
Ravens 34 - 3 Browns.
Gordon, Niall, Lisa and myself will be travelled to this game, as well as going to the Terps match with Toe. On Friday Gordon, Toe and I went live on Nestor’s show. There is a link to the full interview on the web-site. Among other highlights was a TV interview on Baltimore’s FOX 45 news. It aired on the Sunday evening just prior to the main sports news. Only Ben was awake enough to see it!!!
The last we saw of Niall was him being helped into Greg’s car with Lisa in close attendance. Hope the rest of your trip goes well mate!
