Default NFL in UK stronger than ever

I have to say, I am absolutely pumped about this years coverage of the NFL on Skysports (cable based).

Here's what we are getting this year.

Quote:
*Pre-season: For the first time, six live pre-season games during August

*Sunday: Live Sunday evening ?triple-headers? throughout the regular season

*Monday: For the first time on Sky, ?Monday Night Football? live each week

*Interactive: Two extra live Sunday night regular season games via the red button

*Playoffs: Every game exclusively live from the post-season

*Super Bowl: Live coverage of the big game from Arizona on 3rd February 2008

*Extra matches: Pro Bowl, Thanksgiving Day, Thursday and Saturday night matches live

*Support: Including ?NFL Total Access? show six nights a week, a weekly highlights show, Sky season preview plus ?America?s Game? Super Bowl series
We had the 'triple-headers' last year - a live game shown from every slot (1PM, 4PM, and 8.30PM) - plus the option of an alternative game through the interactive utility (although i don't have this - my cable provider doesn't supply it).

We had MNF las year, too - but that was always shown on a terrestrial channel - makes no difference I suppose.

Im looking forward to the saturday night games, but the biggets thing will be the 'support coverage' through the week.

For those that wish to keep up to date on daily news, views and analysis, Sky will be screening extensive support programming including ?NFL Total Access? six nights a week, a weekly highlights show plus ?America?s Game? Super Bowl documentary series.
The America's Game stuff will be a real treat - I have never seen much coverage of the older SB's - it would be great to see some action from the 70's Steelers.

Yep.

Im pumped.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
