One thing Neil said during NFLUK Inside the Huddle Podcast Tour event was how the NFL are open to change and ideas, that they do listen, so I think we need to take hold of such an opportunity.
As fans, we’ve all got a lot we’d like to see improved or changed for the future and so I’d like to propose writing an open letter to NFL UK Managing Director, Alistair Kirkwood about what we’d like to see happen here in the UK when it comes to the game.
Some things I’d like to see:
- Having highlight show on at a reasonable times, like when it used to be on a Sunday morning at 10am.
- I’d like to see more build up at each of the NFL International Series games as this season there didn’t seem to be much and if there was it was all a last minute announcement if anything at all.
- I’d also like to see more events like the Inside the Huddle Podcast but for more cities across the UK, I love that us northerners finally got a chance (as generally, everything happens in London!) but so many missed out and I think it’s a real shame as the insight Jeff and Neil bring is incredible and I want more fans to experience that.
I’m sure you also have something you’d like to say so write in the comments below or contact me via the ‘contact’ link at the top of the page. Once I’ve had comments from those who contact me, I’ll collate it in to one letter and post it on my blog.
If everyone makes an effort to share it, who knows, Alistair might take notice and do what he can on our behalf to address it.
It’s time to make our voices heard.
