lets try a new tactic,

Dear MC, what must we do for our concerns to be head. Its clearly about not posting to this forum, just a search of NFL gives you 80 posts on forum.dstv.com

What are we doing wrong? How should we phrase our dire life/death need to watch NFL again?

The SuperSport guys are renowned for being terrible at responding to forum queries - maybe one of the other MC's can nudge them a bit?

While SuperSport used to broadcast the NFL and the Super Bowl (on occasion), the consistently poor ratings militated against SuperSport renewing the rights.
SuperSport frequently reviews its content to ensure that the offering enjoys broad popularity.

Then I suppose this need to be corrected

I do think MC has a standard response template to cut and paste :

While [MC Channel] used to broadcast [Program,Events] , the consistently poor ratings militated against [MC Channel] renewing the rights.
[MC Channel] frequently reviews its content to ensure that the offering enjoys broad popularity.

That information was just replicated from another website which I doubt SuperSport has any access or control over - not sure where they got their info from.

The link doesn't work here but look at Reference 38 at the bottom of the Wiki page.

Wasn't saying that SS must correct it but merely that it has to be corrected then

Default Super bowl

With poor ratings as reason for not showing Super Bowl, it would make sense that poor ratings also present on the more than 9 super sport channels, if to be consistent. But still broad casting. Or am I mistaken. Used to record the match, and watch it Monday night, after blocking out all the news during the day.

It was a dark and stormy night.
(But because his installation was sound, his DStv reception was perfect.)

Do not forget that MC has to remain politically correct, that's all I'm going to say
