    So who is here looking forward to the start of the season on Thursday with the Steelers VS Dolphins, im hoping for a great season like last year, also hoping the PATS make it to the superbowl this time.

    I cant wait because its one of those sports where you just dont know who is going to win in he end.

    So who here watches and what teams do you support

    Well my local team is the Packers (local by US standards, anyway...) and I'm hoping to see a game this season as my father-in-law works for a company that has a private box :) However, before I moved to the States I used to follow the Bills and I still have a soft spot for them - especially getting to those Superbowls in the early 90's and not winning a thing :o

    Really looking forward to Thursday, the off season seems just too long and there hasnt been any preseason on NASN this year.

    Can't wait to see my Falcons on Sunday. :D

    Looking forward to Tom Brady leading us to another Superbowl win, because after 15 years of supporting a losing team, I'm now used to winning. :)

    yeah i'm really looking forward to it. the only good thing about the winter is all the sport that's on! i'm a partriots fan, when it used to be on channel 4 they were rubbish, but because they had england in their name i supported them :D

    it's just a shame that the programme is on at 2am gmt!

    I've not been an avid viewer since superbowl XXXIII. Does it still get show on terrestrial television?

    Let's go Pats! Hopefully Brady can bring us back round this season and get to the Superbowl.

    i don't think so, there might (and i stress might as i'm not entirely sure) be a magazine show on channel 4 or 5 but i've not watched one for ages. it's the reason i had to stop watching it, no sky up until a few years ago.

    Channel 5 have shown the late game on Sunday and the Monday night game live for a couple of seasons now. You have to wait for the Baseball season to finish to get the Sunday night game live(around week 6-8) but i'm sure the Monday night game is live from week 1.

    btw Bills fan.

    Trading for John Abraham with our first round choice and managing to still get Jimmy Williams in the 2nd round was great work by our front office. And going by pre-season Jerious Norwood looks to be more than a better replacement for Duckett in which we got Ashlie Lelie to shore up our recieving core.
    Grady Jackson at 340lb should be the run stopping NT we need and Cris Crocker and Lawyer Milloy can defo lay the wood on recievers going over the middle.

    Enough to beat Carolina for the division title? Im really not sure.
    But I am confident we reach the play-offs :D
