Yeah, get rid of Osi. He is really starting to make the BBC's coverage unwatchable for me. And Dan Walker just comes across as a new kid at school trying to make friends with the cool kids.

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.

Why do people come onto the page of a sport just to complain? If they took some time to investigate the game they might enjoy it far more that watching prima donnas kicking a pigs bladder around, falling to the ground screaming at the lightest touch.

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.

BBC should have partnered with Nickelodeon and got their coverage for the saints/bears matchup yesterday.
