I'm not an American Football fan by any stretch whatsoever, knowing nothing about it and historically, caring even less . Since Osi and (less so) Jason started, i've found them to be entertaining and as a result, i can now watch the highlights and get an appreciation for the skill involved in the game. If it wasn't for them, i'd be asking why the BBC wastes money on this 'minority interest' sport.
To be fair, it's a fairly complex game with bizarre rules compared to european sports and not particularly engaging or understandable to those tuning in for the first time. Watching football/hockey/ball-goal type games are easy to follow if you've been brought up with it. American football is very alien to most & it's reputation for being stop/start and full of filler doesn't help.
