TBF it won’t be long before we get that in SL :lol:

One thing to note is that after 11 years of doing this they still don’t have a UK team, that’s not a criticism btw but it shows that even a sport as big as NFL take their time with such a move. Over here in RL we expect things to be perfect and deliver right away whenever we try things whether it be a new team or structure or event and if it hasn’t done that after 1 or 2 seasons then it’s deemed a failure and we want rid.

Problem is they can't just add a 33rd team. They would need a team to relocate and unless a team wants to.... It won't happen.

Think the Jaguars where earmarked for a move to London at one point, but they seem to be doing well again. Can see expansion in NFL again in next 10 years possible 4 new teams one in San Antonio Texas, one in London new mexico want a team as so does college football stronghold Oklahoma. time will tell.
or Leigh could apply for a team

It was mooted that either the Jags or Rams where looking to move, St Louis went back to LA and the Jags have had a huge upturn in fortune which may have ruled them both out.

Shahid Khan did want to buy Wembley and he owns the Jags so that would have added fuel to that fire.

Not sure how often franchises are added the last ones where the Jags and Panthers in 1995, and Texans in 2002 so there is scope for future.

Just got back from the Chargers game. As you will see from my picture of Phil Rivers I'm a big charger fan and yesterday was the first time I've seen them play live.

Paid £60 for a ticket but struggle to pay +£40 for a RL event.... Ask why?

Well for my £60 I get:
3 hours of match time
4 hours of tailgate partying before the game
Access to the huge NFL store before and after the game
Free hot dog
Free subway sandwich
Take part in NFL games
Cheerleader druling
I got to meet an NFL player saturday
I got to meet legends of the game over May years

What else do I need to say?

What was your view like for your £60 ticket CATW ?

I have been Last two NFL matches and going again this weekend.
Ticket prices depend on what you want.
Seattle game I went without the kids as it was a night match. I chose a restricted view ticket and it was £36. This was block 109 row 4 so close to the action. Chargers game went upstairs and it’s £50 adult £21 for the kids.
Same again with the kids for this weekend.
The grand final cost me £35 and £22.50 for the kids so not much different in price.
Great atmosphere and all the games i’ve Been to and kids love the tailgate experience so we get there early when it opens at 9am and they get loads of freebies by doing the activities, not just a cardboard sign which says TRY or NO TRY

There was a running line until a few years ago that LA was the most important city in the NFL, because any team that wanted to bully/bribe the local goverment into financing a new stadium would simply threaten to move there.

Now that the Rams and Chargers have moved, London is now that city.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

This is the weirdest thing I just can't get my head around, I love the game/s RL/NFL but St Louis playing in L.A & Chargers etc, etc.
Imagine this franchise .....
London home Leeds
Leeds home St Helens
Wigan home France *that would be nice*
St Helens home Barrow
Warrington home East Hull
Hull FC/KR home London !!!

Fair play to anyone who can get a days entertainment out of NFL - but the product on the pitch defies comprehension; it genuinely bores me stiff, and I have given it a proper good go. I'd even watch RU over it, and that's a fair old bore-fest an all.

You're right about it being horses for courses and that if you as a RL fan don't like NFL so be it. The problem we have at the moment is that more and more RL fans seem to be turning their backs on RL and this is at a time when our near rivals of RU damn nearly sell out Twickers for a league game.
