So in 1982 as we all know the NFL came to the UKs newest channel number 4.

The American Bowls at Wembley came and went,and we had not one but two National professional teams.[/quote]

Some other things to factor into your history ...

- I believe ITV first brought the NFL to our TV screens! In 1980 they had a 15-minute highlights of Super Bowl XIV (Steelers-Rams).
- in 1983 the NFL sent Minnesota and St Louis (Cardinals) to play at Wembley. This predated the American Bowl series.
- And obviously there are the things I wrote about in my "Potted History".

Some questions:
- what format would the HoF take? Perhaps a virtual one might be most accessible in the initial stages.
- what would constitute election to it? How would this be done?
