    You are misinformed fella

    It's the most watched sporting event in the USA, the world cup is the most watched event of all time

    Nfl is not big here we dont have a even semi pro league played within england! Nfl are just amazing at marketing so the one off game gets big support just to see what the whole fuss is about .

    i cant connect to it because it seems to be 5 seconds of action then a further 5 mins of anylysing that play with no real flow to the game

    It is actually the most watched annual sporting event in a NON world cup year. The world cup final is the largest watched sporting event.

    D2K, be ready for the NFL take over here, we have anoter 3 games coming to Wembley and the viewing figures have sky rocketed(sp?).

    In all fairness though 3 games a year selling out a 90k stadium where the game aint played over here isnt that impressive. The NFL will have more than 90k fans over here.
    I see what your saying though, theres growth, it will never be anywhere near as popular as football or even rugby

    but none the less the world cup final has the larger audience therefore the largest sporting event, :D

    I like the NFL although it can be tedious at times
