NFL in London

There has been talk of 2 teams in London. What do you think of expanding to Europe? There would have to be current teams that lose their franchise. So a few team in London, a German team, Dutch and Spanish or Italian. 5 current teams removed. I would need to find a new US sport.

"Blank suggested other European cities could also be welcome destinations for NFL games.

Not only was Blank optimistic about expanding overseas, but he also echoed Dolphins owner Stephen Ross' expectant thoughts about a team in Los Angeles.

So many destinations, so few teams."

Arthur Blank: London could have at least one NFL team - NFL.com


One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.

Re: NFL in London

It shouldn't be brought over here. It would sell out initially as a novelty but who is going to watch the team each week?.
How many players will want to move over here? .
Then you have the legal issues of players leaving the States with upcoming legal cases, not being allowed guns, thousands of miles from family.


NO NO NO

Re: NFL in London

I disagree
London is a horrible place. Expensive, dity, full of ignorant. .... . I like living outsife of it as its useful for events/attractions. Im glad to get out of there by the end of the day.

Re: NFL in London

No...
Too many cities here that can support a team. Besides didn't they have the world league years back? I don't see it working...
