Sabol was surprised by HBO axing 'Inside the NFL'
While talking to NFL Films president Steve Sabol about the Giants DVD for my Friday newspaper column today, I asked him what he thought about HBO's recent decision to stop carrying "Inside the NFL."
"We were surprised,'' he said. "That was a 31-year relationship . . . Hopefully well find another home for it. It's a great tradition. I remember when we met with Mike Fuchs, Austin Furst and Marty Glickman and sat on orange crates and talked about this idea of doing highlights.
"We feel itll come back in some form or another. It was a terrific relationship. We had a long run, goal line to goal line. And we like to think we scored."
