    I think I have the right name, it is the one about the American Football team that was allegedly banned in the US after complaints from the NFL, anyone seen it is it worth a look?

    I think it is starting on the first or second Tuesday in June at the same time as the Last episode of Angel so I will not be watching unless it is repeated in the week.

    Oh I Like the new Forum Layout. :offtopic:

    On from the third of June, stars Omar Gooding (brother of Cuba)
    as the Teams Star runningback (with on and off the field problems)
    and has been cancelled after 11 episodes.
    hardly surprising i think if one considers that ESPN the network that aired the show has very close ties to the NFL and being owned by Disney....
    More info here,

    and of course i'm going to watch it...... :D

    the players didnt like it and the NFL put up a stink about it.

    one thing is that NFL players are always being suspended and arrested for drink, drugs, shootings beating up their wives so on. if they dont like that stuff being depicted on tv quite simple dont do it

    Yea and the Italian Mob is really a bunch of nice guys with misunderstood business practices.

    If these programs were completely fictional and unbelievable then people would not kick up nearly as much fuss.
