Question Sky presenters - 03.12.2010, 04:20 AM

Hi, was just wondering about the presenters of NFL on SKY, I think they're great. I know the guy with the dreads is Cecil Martin (Ex NFL player) and I think the white English guy is called Nick Hall? Is that right,what's his story? Nothing coming up on wikipedia. Also, who is the main guy that loves to say 'ball game' (the Bills fan) did he used to play?

Not important or anything, was just wondering.

Nick Halling - Used to play Wide Receiever for the Houston Oilers. Second british player to play in the NFL.

Kevin Cadle - Went to 4 pro bowls as a defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills, also was a basketball headcoach in London.

Don't be silly. Everyone knows Halling played defensive back for the Steelers.

I'm pretty sure he was a WR but then Dick LeBeau thought he could be better used as a DB ;-)

I thought he was The Waterboy for the Steelers, the inspiration behind the Adam Sandler film of the same name!

I believe a pass to Nick was overthrown by Derek Anderson as a young boy, so he turned to the TV booth as its safer to have wallies make stories up about him
