November 04, 2010 By: Katchop Category: NFL

The Denver Broncos faced the San Francisco 49′ers in London last week, and nobody seemed to care except Roger Goodell.

San Francisco 49'ers punter Andy Lee thinks the NFL has gone to far in trying to attract European fans.

Does America’s version of football play Ringo to the John, Paul, George and Man U’s of the Premier League? Of course, it does. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is a visionary. The man sees (and gets) Super Bowls in New York, for goodness sakes, so you better believe he looks across the Atlantic Ocean and sees a wealth of untapped revenue.

Along with a future NFL franchise.

“I think the next step will be multiple games,” Goodell said Friday of the league’s international series during a Global Sports Panel Discussion in London. “And if that’s successful then I think the idea of a franchise here is realistic.”

Call me a traditionalist, but the thought of some team called the London Bridges or United Kingdom Kings playing a big NFC East showdown against the rival Philadelphia Eagles on “Monday Night Football” … well … let’s just say I just can’t.

But Goodell sees thousands of European fans and hundreds of media types traveling across their continent to be a part of the weekend festivities — if not the game — reinforces his global initiative strategy.

  1. Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

  2. I’ve just been talking to Sean Gallagher about his upcoming Split second Returns Cash Structure course of action, and he’s been kind sufficient to fill me in by a few fine points regarding his upcoming course.

  3. Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
