I will be staying up to watch the first round on NFL.com

The rest of the nights I will be at work nightshift so will follow online, but no stream.

Means I can check the forums here and in the US for the reaction!

Yet again the hard core fan is shafted by NFLUK. No draft on TV - can't believe it!! When will they realise that we would rather have decent coverage of the game on television than the crappy international series (and the even crappier Rams).

Has anyone asked why NFLUK announced the following a few months back?

"ESPN will again show the Draft this year. More details will be released soon, but it will be Live and in HD."

What has happened for this to be retracted? Very worrying signs...

Any chance of getting a reply to this question please Mr Qualcomm?

Spot on. Could we have an explanation of the about face please?

Do we ever get straight answers from the NFL, Mr Kirkwood or Forum Moderators to questions about TV coverage and rights in the UK.
We as NFL fans are interested in what is going on and the fact that we have had nothing on our screens apart from the odd clips and news on ESPN America's Sportscenter is quite unbelieveable in this age.
I also ask the question as to why does it cost more to watch the NFL online in this country than any other North American sport too.
MLB and NHL both offer a great value season ticket with no blackout restrictions and a great archive of games at a very reasonable cost for a whole season.

WE NEED ANSWERS BUT NEVER GET THEM !

This is really disappointing. I too would like to know why the backtrack. Don't bother announcing something if you don't actually have it set up.
