    Cheerleader interviews….really? I thought this was a SERIOUS network about football. You need to stop pandering to women, I THOUGHT that I was going to get serious football coverage but I see that I was wrong. After only a week I ha e cancelled my subscription to your network. You dropped the ball on this one….what’s next? The NFL NETWORK covers makeup parties?
