NFL canceled this show for no reason!
21 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this show was canceled. I watched it faithfully every Sunday and was waiting for it to restart. It's too bad that another network could not have picked this up, it would have been huge! Great story lines, amazing plots, and even better characters! ESPN and the NFL need to get a grip...just a little too close to home eh boys? Sad...It was a really great show! And to think, why even attempt to make a show about pro football if you weren't prepared to deal with some questions about the reality of the show and how much it had to do with actual pro ball. People aren't that stupid...ESPN and the NFL should know, that a good percentage of athletes have matters such as the ones discussed in the shows, and we tune into their stupid networks just to hear the scores! It would have been nice for people to see what's possible in the life of an athlete...not just a fantasy life on the field only...
