Fantasy Football Focus is on Denver Broncos and Travis Henry Tonight
Play at Full Tilt Poker!
Tonight is a big game for fantasy football owners, as anyone who took stock in Broncos running back Travis Henry will be hopeful that he can start against Tennessee.
Because the game is on Monday night, many fantasy owners had to make the decision on Henry before the games started on Sunday, which means they could be stuck without points from their running back position should Henry not start.
The game itself is an important match up for two teams who are looking to make the playoffs in the AFC.
The Denver Broncos have been an up and down team all year, but a win tonight and they will be tied for the division lead in the AFC West.
Tennessee has been somewhat surprising this season and with a win, can keep pace with the Indianapolis Colts, a team that suddenly looks like they can be caught for the division title.
The Colts are battling through a few devastating injuries, and with the way the Jaguars and Titans are playing, there is a good chance there could actually be a race for the division title for the first time in years.
Denver’s success will be largely reliant on Henry’s health, and to an even greater extent, his legal situation with the NFL. A ruling is expected on Henry’s appeal on Tuesday.
Ireland’s Dundalk Race Track to Mix Dog and Horse Racing

Another possible path to save the struggling parimutuel industry might be found December 5th, when horses and greyhounds will run in the same meet at Ireland’s Dundalk Stadium.
Dundalk is Ireland’s first combined greyhound and horse facility, and, although horse have been running at the town since 1889 and dogs since 1930, only now is mixed racing arriving.
Dundalk Race Company PLC and Dundealgan Greyhound Racing Company Limited merged in 1999, vowing to restore the track and amenities to a first-class level. Dogs began racing again in 2003, and horses returned this year.
The goal to offer combined racing was expected to still be more than a year away, but a recent rescheduling of a horse event to the December date allowed the idea to become reality sooner than anticipated. Track officials believed this and other future mixed events will expose aficionados of each style to the joys of the other.
Parimutuel tracks across the United States have turned to slots as a possible saving grace, but there is increased competition in the slot business from Indian and other casinos. As has been noted on this site, any measures that might rescue the historic traditions of animal racing need to be considered.
