Pats’ Robert Kraft wants NFL team in London: “We’re starting to tap out in the U.S.”
 
“I think we’re starting to tap out in the United States. If you look at the last Super Bowl we were in this past season, we had over 180 million people watching – that’s almost two thirds of America. So for us to grow the game, we have to expand globally. Having seen the kind of support we have received here in London, it is the intention of the NFL owners to get two games here, starting next year.

Anyone see the irony of an owner of a team called the Patriots wanting to start a team in London?

And he claims they are the most popular team NFL team in the UK!

Stupid idea. It's football ... American football. If they simply must do it, put a team in Canada or even Mexico, not some place like London. Forcing a team to travel 12+ hours for one away game, or the London team traveling 12+ hours for EIGHT away games, is just absurd.

Ok then, move your team over there.

OldMaid 06-28-2012 11:31 PM

No. No teams there or in Canada or Mexico.

QBREES9 06-28-2012 11:41 PM

I would say Canada.

I guess they would become the EX Pats.

It's insane & stupid.

I think there is no way they can only add one european team. Because just like you're saying, the tavel would be insane. Its better if they just restart the NFL Europe. I'd like to see the last 6 teams in Germany/Netherlands, 2 teams in the UK and preferably a Snadinavian team in Stockholm or Copenhagen. Paris would be a good option too.
