    That would be Ed and Steve Sabol.

    When I lived in New Jersey, I used to work at a printing company just up the street from their headquarters in Mt. Laurel. They were a pretty big employer in town and I knew several people who worked for them.

    The Sabols have singlehandedly changed the way we get sports coverage, IMHO, for the better. NFL Films has contributed significantly to the popularity of the NFL thanks to the access and approach of the Sabols. Again, just my humble opinion.

    So the Sabols are the ones who do those wonderful "NFL Films" productions? The ones that go way back to the early 70's?

    They do a great job. I remember watching those when I was a kid. Everything was *perfect*. The perfect background music, the voice of the one doing the commentary was the perfect voice. It seemed like lots of the time the tape was running slightly slower...but not too slow...than the live time would be, but that just drew you in even more.

    Fran Tarkenton, Johnny Unitas, Merlin Olson, Bart Starr, the "Purple People Eaters", etc etc etc.

    No, that'd either be the FBI, Congress, or the World Doping Agency!
