    Bah, Northerners, they're living in another world...

    If there is a team in England, then it should have been done in the early 80's when there was a lot of interest, ask a guy on the streets of London now what they fought of american footballers, he would say they're pussies, over-paid freaks of nature and they can't watch a game because it stops and starts all the time, to be honest, they've probably only watched 5 mins of a game ever...

    That's why a game every few years could spark interest, and get the game to be become more popular, a ''worldwide'' sport...

    I'm surprised England is even considered a prime target for a game, clearly Germany is the bigger market, not to mention a better location from a strictly geographical standpoint (easier access for the rest of Europe compared to England).

    It is, however, they're considering bidding for a game in 2009/10, for the U.K, next season is what we're going for...

    I guess your just talking regular nfl games, not the whole sport regular season games.

    "The name argument" is the most lame one i´ve heard of politics when talked them about me running a football team here, in stupid "one sport minded" Spain.

    They're saying a team will play abroad once every sixteen years which would mean one location(where ever) that may be each year.

    If they are looking to build on their fan base & revenue then you would think each location would need to get a game each year. Four locations would mean a team losing a home game every four years.

    I can understand why home fans would be pissed. In all seriousness I would rather save up & go & experience a game with home fans & people I've met here than watch a game in my home country.

    Sure I'd meet some fellow fans here but a large proportion of spectators would be new to the game & either drunk or asking 20 questions all the time.

    I'm even on the waiting list for a PSL/season ticket :yes:

    I think so too, with Germany in a close second.
