For Rookies to beat Bookies, an NFL podcast coming out of the UK bringing you the highs and lows of being an NFL fan from afar.






Overreacting Is Fun

The lads review how Week 1 went in the NFL with some insights that only they can, they provide updates on their fantasy and look ahead to Week 2.


Connect 4

The lads are finally back together and in studio, Tom's swelling has finally gone down, Mark is able to leave his house after finally finding his key. As always Tony and Rob are there in all their glory, well not all of it in Rob's case.



The lads are back with this season's prediction podcast in typical Far From fashion it can't be simple and is put in the forms of bets, whether that's taken straight from a bookies website or the lads giving each other odds. we're also joined by comedian and Texans fan and former resident Phil Chapman who tells us about getting into the NFL while in America and how he's seen it grow in the UK


Too Legit To Quit

The boys are here with their first studio episode of the pod now available as video too, if you'd like to check it out head over to YouTube and search Far From Lombardi.


Far From Fantasy

It's the second year of our now annual listener challenge, the winners of our twitter competition and best placed listener from last year enter this season looking to dethrone the Far From lads. Well Rob (me) cause I'm the king of fantasy on this podcast.


Training Camps, Pre season and Hard Knocks Ep1

The lads jump on the pod to discuss how training camps seem to be going so far, the first of the preseason games and their feelings on the newest Hard Knocks debut episode


Far From Pick Jerseys

At times the NFL seems a constant carousel of players, veterans losing jobs and established stars becoming victims of the salary cap and moving on. The problem is it always seems to happen right after you've bought their jersey and unless you're loaded it gets expensive to keep replacing the names on the back. If you're a veteran NFL Fan you've suffered this, if you're a Rookie we're here to help before it's too late. This episode s a recommendation for a jersey for every team in the NFL one...


NFC Predictions

After letting himself be enticed last week Tom vows he won't be wagering on any predictions this episode, something Rob takes as a challenge. Mark finally gets to give a prediction and all four lads make an outlandish one to get us up to 100.


AFC Predictions

This pod was meant to be 100 predictions, 100 days out of the NFC it's now just the AFC as life got in the way don't fret though as it's a good one, my favourite kind of one! Gambling heavy, talking shite heavy.


Rob does a Rodgers

Not to be outshone by the saltiness of Aaron Rodgers Rob has decided to sit out the non mandatory pods. So rejoice in the limited number of C Bombs, the lack of Chiefs crowbarring and general all round nicer ambience. *Clearly going to be less funny though. Rob.


Post Draft Pod

Join the lads as they discuss the impact of the Draft, the big moves at QB and Rodgers whinging. Did we see the moves coming? would we have done the same?


Mark's Draft Special

Mark wanted you all to have a draft special so here it is, quite bet heavy this one which is always one of my favourites.


FFL Bye Week

Just a quick one to say we're sorry no episode this week but we'll be back next week with a pre draft special.


Making a mock of the draft!

The lads attempt at a mock draft with very little knowledge of the college, besides resident expert Tom of course.


Once More With Feeling

The lads face a serious of questions all centering numero uno. Pardon the interruptions while discussing Deshawn Watson but Tom had turned it up to 11.


Mark's Redraft

It was Mark's week to take charge of the pod and as expected from a man who struggles to remember to breathe it was chaotic. Starting off by recording two days late, sorry about that. Anyway we had a go at redraft of the 2020 draft to see just how things might have changed with hindsight.


Far From Lombardi Awards

This week's episode is a special awards episode, not your standard MVP but awards for moments or people who we feel showed exemplary Far From Lombardi Spirit


A message for Wess and The Super Bowl Recap

We started this week's podcast a bit differently with a message of condolences and thanks to Chris Wesseling and his family, a great podcaster and inspiration to us all. If you'd like to help support Wess' family with their loss their is a go fund me which you can find on our twitter @farfromlombardi. The rest of the podcast is a look back at a very surprising Super Bowl as the lads elate in punishing Rob further after an already disappointing loss.


THE Super Bowl Special

The lads discuss 'The Big One': what each team needs to do to win; things to look out for, and our Request-A-Bet specials.


The Casuals Super Bowl Special

We all know how it is for some fans and certain people you've not really paid attention or ben interested all year but now it's all anybody can talk about you're ready to be all in, poor takes and ill researched opinions and all. Well we at Far From Lombardi are here for you, we've got you covered with the story of each team's season to the Super Bowl. Their strengths and weaknesses as well as all the nuanced bits in between that got them to the big game. So don't be scared to look a fool as...
