We’ve got another battler and club stalwart thanks to Chris (4/10) and Fui2014 (7/10)

Trivia Tuesdays: F1 shoeys, controversial referees and leading wicket-takers

A couple more mid-range efforts; Jaceman came it at the top-end of the battlers with 5 out of 10, and Prickly_Percy joined the ranks of the club stalwarts with 7 correct answers.

A few more responses coming in; one battler of an effort from Postgamesport, while CJC and The lazy Phoenix both established themselves as club stalwarts.

Trivia Tuesdays: F1 shoeys, controversial referees and leading wicket-takers

Well, we’ve had plenty of responses thus far, ranging from a rookie who could only manage 2 out of 10, plenty of battlers and club stalwarts who put in some serviceable efforts, right up to some bona fide hall-of-famers, including one who didn’t miss a single question – congrats to Front Row Dark Arts for his perfect effort.

Still plenty of time to equal that top score and go into the draw for a neat little Roar prize pack though, so keep those answers coming in!

That’s all from us today. We hope you enjoyed the game despite its one-sided nature.

Here’s to a fun offseason. I’m already looking forward to September.

Thanks everybody!

Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith is the Super Bowl MVP. Honestly, they could have given it to any one of the Seahawks defenders. They all did their part in dominating the Broncos O.

Unless you’re a Seahawks fan, sure. But it is interesting to see that defences once again come out on top in the biggest game.

It certainly was a masterclass. I still can’t get my head around it.

What are your takeaways from the game?

Does this hurt Peyton’s legacy? Will they be able to bounce back next season?

Sound off, Roarers!

GAME OVER!

The Seattle Seahawks are Super Bowl XLVIII Champions, beating the Denver Broncos 43-8.

Congratulations to the team, all the Seattle fans, and Macklemore.

There’s no doubt this was one of Peyton Manning’s worst career games, and while his offensive line deserves plenty of criticism he’ll be the first to say he’s to blame for this loss.

He might be right, but the Seahawks exposed a team that’s been phenomenal all season long. Denver will have Manning for at least one more year, and would do well to look hard at the defensive side of the ball this year in free agency.

Of course that secondary was lights out, as expected, and Russell Wilson made some fantastic plays over the middle and with his legs.

The Broncos’ D was solid to start the game off, stopping the Seahawks from getting out to a big early lead. But as the game wore on they began to make mistakes, including numerous missed tackles.

The Seahawks dominated in all three phases tonight, but I’d argue the lion’s share of credit must go to their defensive line.

While Manning was rarely sacked, or even hit, he was often pressured into bad throws and tipped passes.

The Seahawks go back to the run, and with less than 3 mins left in the game we can begin to work out exactly what the heck happened here tonight.

FUMBLE! Manning loses the ball on 4th down. Seahawks D has been relentless all game and once again get their O the ball with short field.

TURNOVER. Seahawks give up the ball on 4th down. Broncos start their drive on the 32.

Seahawks finding success running the game without Lynch, as Turbin continues to burst through holes.

TURNOVER! Broncos stay on the field on 4th-and-2 but fail to convert as the ball bounces off of the turf. Turnover on downs, Seahawks ball.

Walter Thurman is now down on the field. Bad timing, as Sherman is going back into the locker room.

Seahawks once again get called for pass interference. Their physical style is being punished late in the game, but the damage has already been done.

Richard Sherman looks hurt again and is down on the field.

Seahawks making a statement by not letting up. Broncos tackling has been awful in the second half and D has been giving up way too much over the middle.

TOUCHDOWN! Baldwin makes the catch and ducks into the endzone for the TD. Great play by the receiver to avoid the defenders.

Seattle up 43-8 with 11 mins left in the game.
