Cannae' beat a good punt at altitude. Shame on Neil and Jeff for not pouring over some of our best punts at the tablet screen.

Opposite for me. Once cycling season starts properly I don't miss the NFL too much. Spring classics in March/April, Giro d'Italia for 3 weeks in May, Tour de France for 3 weeks in July, Vuelta a EspaƱa for 3 weeks mid-August to early September and there you have it, week 1 of the regular season is upon us. They are good sports to follow together actually because they are almost opposites for season/offseason - just a bit of a clash in September/early October and nothing much from now till late Feb, otherwise perfect. So now is really the time when neither of my favourite sports are on. I've tried to compensate this year by recording loads of college games as though I like it I just don't have time to watch it nowadays at the same time as the NFL. Maxed out the BT box with about 50 games recorded so it should both fill the sporting void and allow me to do a bit of draft scouting. Now, who's got a good 3-4 OLB who has declared?

Compared to most major sports the season is pretty short....but maybe that keeps the interest up

It comes back quick enough, Everton (for my sins) will keep me occupied, i also have the start of the Rugby League (Wigan) followed by the tour de france, suddenly it will be September and the 1st International series game.

I hate the wait, but guess that's what makes it so good when it comes round!

Thats why I like the NBA. October through to May with games pretty much every single night. It at least eats into the NFL off season.

8 months with no Neil is the only upside.

Neil has been made to look like a knowledgeable God since Dara turned up.
