Anglo-Scot (so, Briton) ANDREW POTTER blames Mega Drive classics John Madden Football and Joe Montana Sports Talk Football for his transatlantic love of the gridiron game. He joined Football Outsiders in 2013 to help with the infamous Twitter Audibles experiment, and still compiles Audibles at the Line to this day. Though outwardly a fan of the New Orleans Saints, inwardly the Angus resident still yearns for his first gridiron love: NFL Europe’s Scottish Claymores.
