I've noticed lately when I see Sky Sports on Sundays to check on the Premier League action, sometimes they have highlight packages on some of the NFL games from earlier in the day. I'm curious to know, Dylan, is there really any enthusiasm in the UK for American football? I would never have guessed there was.

Well I do know that back in the early '90s the BBC used to carry about a two-hour program devoted to each week's NFL action.

Has the coverage gotten more extensive since?

The BBC have never covered the NFL, it was Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky Sports in the UK. My friend in the UK gets pretty good coverage from Sky and can also buy games each week to watch on his computer for around $12 dollars.
