    Re: NFL Network.

    NFLN has become one of my top ten shows since they dumped Rod Woodson.

    The reigning champion of self promotion, Rich Eisen (? sp) does a fair job.

    I really like Dukes now that he no longer has the yelling habit he came into the show with.
    And Sapp has some pretty good analysis at times.

    The other 4 letter network seems to always be less than Vikings friendly, so maybe this is the lessor of two evils!

    But as long as they keep parading those babes out there to show there assets, they shall remain in my top ten.

    For what good is football if it only involves big, sweaty, men?

    They also have Mike Mayock.

    Who, if anyone is unaware, is the man.


    Possibly the best thing I've ever seen on there involves none of their on-air personalities, analysts, etc. Simply great NFL Films work. "Full Color Football: History of the American Football League" that was really fantastic.

    America's Game is always great as well.

    If they still had Schefter to break every story I'd never watch ESPN for football(MNF excluded)
