I have to say i agree with them. A franchise in Europe or the UK is an absolute terrible idea. It will never work and for me should never even be discussed by the NFL front office. I would also add i dont like the idea of a second game coming to the UK , one of those games will see a very poor crowd and will lead to even more critism. Whilst i have very much enjoyed the three international games i dont think it has helped a great deal in expanding the NFL in the UK. As Keith has just mentioned what we need is more TV coverage as its the easiest way to pick up more fans.
For me the thing that alot of US press get wrong is thinking we know very little about the game , the NFL is a small market over here that cant be disputed what can is how much fans over here know about the game.
Oh and a thread was closed what i wanted to post in ala Paul Stewart. The guy has been and always will be a tool. He was shocking and laughable on Sky. Favre will be a Buc , the guy has the inside knowledge.
