Wembley lunchtime kick-off helps case for London NFL team — The Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said the lunchtime kick-off against the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley on Sunday is another positive step towards an NFL franchise in London. Normally matches at Wembley are held at 6pm UK time to coincide with the early kick-offs in the US.

Atlanta Falcons owner: NFL London franchise is ‘six or seven years away’ — Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, says that a NFL London franchise could only be "six or seven years away" because the league's owners have been blown away with the "fabulous" support for the international series of American Football matches at Wembley.

Leigh Halfpenny prepares to fill the Toulon boots left by Jonny Wilkinson — Even though Leigh Halfpenny knows the story ends with his right shoulder dislocated and dangling impotently as he is helped off the Twickenham pitch, he relives it with stubborn relish.

Billy Beane can’t get enough of soccer after revolutionising baseball — "Quite frankly, I can't get enough of soccer," says Billy Beane. "I tell my jingoistic friends in the United States there's a reason why it is the world's No1 sport. The rest of the planet can't be wrong."

Lynn Howells: Romania will surprise people at the Rugby World Cup — Lynn Howells whistles through his lips as he remembers his first day coaching Romania's rugby players. "There was a metre and a half of snow on the pitch in Bucharest," he says. "And it was absolutely freezing! I tell you now, in Britain no player would have cleared that snow.

Justin Gatlin return should remind doping agencies of the need to invest — Justin Gatlin describes himself as "the Batman of the track - a vigilante. You may not like me, but I'm needed." But few in athletics are celebrating the rising again of this self-styled Dark Knight.

Bath determined to make inroads in Europe on return to rugby’s top table — Even amid this most glorious of autumns, and before a ball has been placed on a kicking tee in European Rugby's new Champions Cup, Bath's thoughts are tumbling towards spring. As the club's captain, Stuart Hooper, puts it: "May used to be a holiday for us.

Cheering the other side is still football’s ultimate tribal taboo — Moments after Cesc Fàbregas's name was announced at Stamford Bridge, a triumphant upward stress placed on those final syllables as if hailing a world champion boxer, there were boos from the Arsenal end.

Daniel Keatings can make history with first gold at world championships — No British male gymnast has ever won a gold medal at a world championships, but over the next few days Daniel Keatings intends to make history. Given his quick-handed mastery of the pommel horse, a piece of apparatus that demands a series of smooth 360-degree swings, double leg circles and scissor movements before walking on hands along a 34-36cm wide beam - he might just do it.

Cut Alan Pardew some slack - he’s been unlucky and players have been sold — The knives have long been out for Alan Pardew. Now, though, they are pressed against his neck. Few expect Newcastle's manager to survive a defeat at Swansea this Saturday; fewer supporters still would mourn his departure. You can understand why. Newcastle have sunk into the relegation zone having failed to muster a league win this season.

@mixedknuts @unfitforpurpose @TheM_L_G Maybe-though in last season's EPL, Man City and Chelsea conceded fewer goals than R Madrid in La Liga

@danny_pugsley That said, you make fair point given 83,000+ filling Wembley 3x in six weeks. How many sports could do that with OKish teams?

@danny_pugsley Possibly yes - although judging by web traffic a lot of people are going to other sites/sources for NFL news than papers

@guyrbailey Don't disagree. Think there are all sorts of problems with it (wrote a piece a month back) but doesn't mean won't happen

@guyrbailey Blank addressed this - said that 10-20% of fans at NFL game often support opposition and thought UK fans would still come
