    I saw this earlier today.

    Again…I’ve been blown away by the quality and professionalism of NBC’s opening weekend coverage of the Premier League.

  3. Dean Stell says:

    Wow….that’s great. I’m really impressed at how NBC is producing this kind of material.

    Honestly, these are the types of things us Americans can share on Facebook with our non-soccer friends that helps them understand what a cool sport it is. Right there in that little moment, so much happens.

    My only critique of the video blurb is that it doesn’t quite lay out the importance of the outcome. Of course, both teams want to win, but Liverpool has aspirations of a Top 4 finish this year and drawing at home against Stoke in Week 1 is not a good way to go about that. Basically, Top 4 clubs beat Stoke at home. Similarly, Stoke was relegation threatened last year, getting a point away to a Top 6-7 club is a big deal. Not sure how the video could communicate that news, but that’s why they’re the marketing gurus.

    On the featured game do we get to see Arlo White and Lee Dixon screen live. I have not been able to determine that yet.

    Not a reds supporter but that video gave me the chills! Fantastic moment captured beautifully by NBC
