OXNARD, CA (KLTV) - It's no surprise for Cowboys training camp to draw cameras and mics from far and wide—they have a tremendous following ... but Germany?
"You may be surprised that there are a lot of Germans who know a lot about it …we get to hear it every week if there's some statistic wrong, if we name the team wrong, if we say San Diego Chargers, we get tweets immediately. Of course, there is a growing fan base," says German sports reporter Mattis Oberrch.
The German TV sports crew paid a visit to the other two NFL teams, training in their home state, Rams and Chargers, but in comparison to the Cowboys, they say this camp was more to their liking.
"We usually only we get to see the players on Sundays, when they're playing on Sundays…the cameras are far away, we don't get to talk to them, don't get to hear them…here you kind of get to know what type of people they are. I mean we talked Travis Frederick, he was the nicest guy, he was really interested in talking to us," Oberrch said.
