As for who might narrate it - what about Carl Weathers?

Or Peyton Manning
I'm with vincent on this, I prefer watching the older ones with greater retrospect. Just a personal view, but I too would prefer them to wait 5 years minimum.

I have to say I agree too. The better ones are when all three can be honest and dish a little bit of dirt on the season and dressing room politics. If all three are still at the same team it becomes a bit of a love fest.

It does depend on who they select to talk.

Having said that a few of the older ones are seemingly full of sour grapes of some of those interviewed.

Quicker the better for me, and I'd probably think this even if it wasn't my team.

I wonder in the same light as Kurt Warner's journey from the supermarket to the superbowl in the 99 Rams version, whether they will refer back to Sean Payton's playing/coaching career having roots in the UK ... would be funny to see him sound off about warm beer, facilities, standard of play etc !

He doesn't quite sound off about the facilities and beer but the Leicester Panthers get a mention.

Default This is only my 2nd post.....

......cos I never really thought to come onto the forums on NFLUK.com, even tho my bro's company are the one's that designed and built the website, lol! I normally reside on football future's forum cos of the fact that there's a lot of New Orleans natives on there and it's good to learn more about the game and the team from them.

The reason I'm posting is cos it was only this morning that I was wondering about America's Game and when ours might be available to watch? Does anyone have a rough idea of how long it usually takes before they film it and then show it?

Just as a side note, I happened to start following the Saints 4 years ago at the very start of Sean Payton/Drew Brees era so clearly not a glory hunter. I followed Reggie Bush after knowing little to nothing about the sport but saw an amazing talent despite this lack of knowledge and as it's turned out I've discovered that it must have been meant to be....I can't imagine being a fan of any other team and I love my Saints dearly. They only just come 2nd to Tottenham Hotspur but then I have been a fan of them since I was 6 years old so that's still saying something!

WHO DAT!

Jus seen this program on NFL Network. It was brilliant to relive our Super Bowl victory. They went with Vilma along with Patyon and Brees. It has really put me in the mood for tonights game.

Really can't wait to see this. I love watching America's Game in the morning. Nothing like a bit of NFL and coffee to start the day!

WHO DAT!

Loved it. Watched it in Finn McCools Irish bar and the place was great.
