Scotland's only dedicated American football blog

About the site

Helmets ‘n’ Haggis is the only independent blog in Scotland dedicated to American football. Combining news, features and insight from both sides of the pond, Helmets ‘n’ Haggis will cover the NFL all year round, from sunny San Francisco to chilly Green Bay. The equally chaotic but fantastic college football scene will also feature, and we’ll keep you updated on the development of the gridiron on these shores.
