I'm disappointed. I thought you were talking about the "handle" Gridiron, an ex-railwayman who was a regular contributor to the N Gauge Yahoo Group before it imploded.

Best regards,


Joe

Just out of idle interest, how long does it take to broadcast a 1 hour game?

Here in the US of A it takes about 4 hours!

Same here, John P
The only difference is the 3 UK games and the Superbowl are shown on the BBC (non commercial) so we don't get adverts, just more punditry. Everything else is minimal highlights e.g. hour per week show.

With a resounding raspberry @Caz from the Phantom Raspberry Blower of old London Town, the UK games are:-

14.10.18 Seattle Seahawks v Oakland Raiders
21.10.18 Tennessee Titans v Los Angeles Chargers
28.10.18 Philadelphia Eagles v Jacksonville Jaguars

As last time, these are not just demonstration games but results count towards the NFL standings.
