I like the show. But didn't think it should be on a movie channel. I'm sure a network/cable service will pick it up. But with commercial breaks.

I haven't seen the show in about 10 years, since that's when my cable company started requiring a converter to subscribe to HBO. It probably cost HBO a fortune to produce this show since all of the game footage came from NFL films. Someone told me about 10 years ago that NFL Films charges $200/second for rights to use clips in another show and that fee has almost certainly gone up since then.

Is Len Dawson still on the show?

Yawn..... nothing like football updates days after the games.... George Michaels Sports Machine was more current.

I always thought it was fun to watch just because of the narrated highlights with in game voices added to it.
