So much UK sport ignored by the BBC - especially if it happens north of the Border, yet they spend money broadcasting and reporting on this mince from the rebel colonies.

Before complaining about what the BBC reports on, it might help you to realise that the fanbase for American Football is growing in the UK. I agree, there is sport they ignore, but that doesn't mean that this article is irrelevant. You'd be surprised to see how many British NFL fans there are, and try not to dismiss it as 'mince': Even if you don't like it there are plenty who appreciate the sport

Precisely. I don't like Rugby League or Athletics but I wouldn't for one minute say that therefore they shouldn't be covered. Although maybe in future iterations of the website it could filter by your preference and only show sports you are interested in?

Fantastic performance by the Browns, that victory must feel amazing after years of being second best to the Steelers! These kind of upsets are what the NFL is all about. Can't wait to see them go up against the Chiefs, but I'm not sure they will be able to challenge. But I said that before the Steelers game, and we all know what happened there!

That would definitely be useful, I think you can already filter to some extent with the 'My Sport' section and the tabs but would be helpful if the website recognized/asked for what you like and don't like to edit the page to your preferences.
It just frustrates me when people say the BBC should report on the sports they like and only them.

I know they can count page visits etc. but would also provide Beeb with extra data on who is reading what as a 'favourite' and can therefore adapt accoringly.
