    I was in two drafts at the same time, that was brutal.

    Did anyone else have problems getting into the draft room?

    I was trying to access through Safari and it wouldn't load for me. Thankfully had Firefox on standby as a backup and it worked fine with that.

    Do any of you use NFL game pass? Thinking of signing up for it this year so wondering if the stream quality is good (obviously partially my bandwidth dependent) and if the other content makes the price worth it?

    It is excellent if you make use of it. I’ve never had a problem. Only think that does my head in is that in the UK, if a game in on Sky it won’t be on Game Pass. Not live anyway. The series like A Football Life and Hard Knocks are class.

    That's a bit pish seeing as it claims you'll get all 250 games on it.

    It’s infuriating when it’s your team.

    Because the games are on game pass 24 hours after they’ve finished on Sky, technically you get all the games. Nobody wants that though.

    Once the playoffs start there’s no blackout games though.

    It's the happiest money I spend all year :84:
    There's no blackout games in Spain either. Was in Glasgow for the Chiefs-Pats game last year and was able to watch it by starting the stream on 3G and then switching to WiFi when it had started.
    Couldn't you get around the blackout by using a VPN?.

    Channel 5 will be showing MNF and have a magazine show on Sunday mornings, BBC doing one too, and Sky with their channel. Class.

    The sport is definitely beginning to gain traction in this country now. As someone who has been following it since the late 80s, it is fantastic to see.

    The days of "bunch of * * wearing pads, rugby players are far harder" finally seem to be a thing of the past.

    Rugby is objectively a tougher sport though, no doubt about it.

    Other than being marketed well and increased access through the internet, I think a lot of new fans to the sport are drawn to the tactical side of the game. That’s certainly what got me more interested, once I began to grasp an understanding of the game.
