    Good. I just don't understand why they go over there. I know it's to increase the fan base and get the English to follow football but I don't think having one game over there will suddenly make them NFL crazy. What they should do is broadcast numerous games weekly there to increase interest.

    They do Willie, we get three games on sunday but no MNF anymore. We also get America's Game episodes and Total Access episodes, well, one Total Access episode due to the program breaching UK advertising laws.

    The NFL are trying to build on the hardcore fanbase American Football has in the UK and has had since the 80's.
