Wheres here? :lol:
ya I would be suprised to see the NFL becoming huge oversees. Soccer is too large there!
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 seems like a worse version of rugby to me
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?).
soccer=boring to us, not more I can tell ya. :lol:
But we defend your right to enjoy it!! Hell, we like a lot of things most people would find dumb :lol:
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,
I like the NFL although it can be tedious at times
I AM planning on catching a soccer(football) match when I come over to the UK to visit shaun. I must see what the fuss is all about. I heard its a crazy time!
