Id also be very surprised in they ever moved a team over here, fans in the States don't want it and neither do the players - its just the gready NFL bosses that do!
I agree, I don't want a team in th UK. The way the NFL is currently promoted on UK tv, media; it is not going to happen.
However if It does happen then the NFL would have to greatly increase the NFL programming on tv, whether it is NFL Network USA of UK. Sky would also need to pull their finger out.

The issue with advertising is not valid when the programming is live, hence why ESPN never had an issue with NFL countdown, BT with NBA Toyota halftime or even College Gameday ...as it live...but they never show a repeat of it.

Just get Total Access back first, rather than having to go onto their website. To me Sky have messed up their off season coverage, there's no where near enough shown. And if their is it's games from the 80's even 70's. What about games from last season!

Ignore that possible issue, there is loads of NFL programming available and Sky give us nothing outside of the games, other than repeats of Americas game.

Well there's ESPN Player (Online Player) but the quality is really poor compared to say Gamepass.

I think ESPN player in the UK is just for college games etc. Don't think you can actual watch the ESPN channels from the states?
