    Portland put in a dominating performance to win the NAH Bench Champs. It was a shame not to have Seattle and SF there, and I'm sure it would have made it harder for them, but they really played well as a team.

    Everyone felt it was a great tournament, bringing clubs together in a competitive environment in a way 3vs3 can't.

    I remember we did that tournament a while back in the UK, I'd really recommend doing it again.

    NAH Bench this weekend. 11 of the best clubs in NA (and 1 random team), fighting to become the first North American Club Bench Champions.

    Seattle and SF couldn't make it, which is a shame, and Portland have to be heavy favourites, but should be good games.

    The format is 7 players dressed per game (unlimited squads), 1 hour long games.

    Not looking forward to the Eagles game next week, who have a 3-0 record, despite having conceded 78 points. I haven't seen them yet, but that must be some offence...

    So frustrated with the niners right now.

    After three games their record is first half: 59 - 16, second half: 3-52. Producing a 1-2 record.

    Kaepernick's running was a great weapon for the last 1.5 seasons, but this year it seems he's trying it too much. Gore rushes it every now and then, but given the number of interceptions and turnovers he seems reluctant to throw it, and ends up getting caught by the defence when he runs it. Too many sacks, and lost yards.

    Newton and Wilson seem to run every now and then, as a surprise, but Kaepernick is too one dimensional so far. Not that he can take all the blame, the rest of the team need to ask some serious questions.

    Cos he's Wenger v2.

    Good at promoting young talent, happy to later sell them to the top club in the league (or in other countries). Very good at finishing just behind the top club.

    A lot of demand for it over here, for traditional bench, and a shorter 5vs5 format
