Just wondering, how many of us (especially you on the "other side") watched, attended, or even care about the NFL in the UK?

Jacksonville is my home team, and usually a win for them is a big surprise for us.  

So today is no surprise.

American Football has been on British TV since the early 1980's, the games basics was helpfully explained on Channel 4 by a Brit. Mick Lucknurst who had been the kicker for the Atlanta Falcons.

Back then it all seemed to be about the Chicago Bears and characters like William 'The Refrigerator' Perry, and Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins.

I found it interesting but the games featured too many ad breaks, meaningless statistics, and analysis by ex players pointing out stuff we Brits obviously missed as novice viewers.


Back then living and working in Rugby League mad West Cumbria, the game was generally rubbished because of all the padding and protective gear worn unlike rugby players, having different teams for Offense and Defence, and a special lad who comes on just to kick at goal.

It was also amusing calling a game where everyone handle the ball football, and irritating to here our proper football called soccer.

Now nearly forty years later we're more educated, it's still on TV on satellite channels, there are British and European teams playing in a fairly obscure league, and when visiting NFL teams play at Wembley Stadium they're well attended, Mrs M's been to them a couple of times.

She occasionally also stays up half the night watching the Super Bowl, me I just fall asleep early in the game.

But to be honest I don't have more than a modicum of interest in any ball game whatever it's shape or team sports generally, I never have.

Although I have to say if I had a favourite NFL team it would have to be the Buffalo Bills. I once bought a Bills cap which I had for years until it was lost it somewhere at Disney World on a family visit.  Sad

Meldrew, with you on that. Just got tired watching professionals act childish while (whilst? ) earning ..hah... 7 figure salaries. Many of those guys go on to show bad moral character and a demonstration of greed over fairness in the name of $. That being said I watched a football to you(soccer) cup playoff one year and could call every hit that lead to an injury about 7 times in a row. Had enough. Better to play sports than watch them.

what´s a wembely? wasn´t there a Boris too who was beating lots of little balls with his racket a long time ago.
and what did your big cats loose there?
Is that something like that Nike guy with the big hair who always kneels down to beg for money?
Have stopped watching sports since I heard they can buy and sell a player - must have been in the 70th.

A 1/4 < sneak? scratch That's absolutely lost on me. I've already used my best American football quote on here too.

’You go to prison as a Tight End, and come out as a Wide Receiver'.

quarter back sneak Smile

All kidding aside after watching different games from both sides of the pond soccer has to be the or near the top of physical demanding sports, constant motion best describes it for me.
