We will soon be the World's Team.
yeh just like London, ,.. more NFL football at 8:00 am in the morning.... yeh right, really looking forward to that.
We already are the world's team. Next Mars mission they need to take a Cowboys flag and stake it in the ground.
I don't mind those early games actually. It is better than the lame pre game shows. And 4 games for the day.
To me it made since when the NFL was propping up NFL Europe league to have NFL teams go to Europe and play. Now with NFL Europe long gone, I don't see the point.
“Deutschlands Team”, lol.
They are wasting their time. Antarctica is prime untapped football ground
Jumping offsides ist verboten! Fumbling ze ball ist verboten! Blitz! Blitz! Blitz!
Dallas Cowboys uber alles, uber alles Deutschlan's own.
I'm fine with this as long as the Cowboys don't have to go. The teams that have to travel that far are really getting screwed.
The team could stay at Dirk’s house
I used to live in Germany, and my sister is married to a German man. I can tell you most Germans have no earthly clue about American football. That's not a put-down, mind you. I'm only saying that most of them have no understanding of the sport. That said, I did watch some Youtube vids of clips from NFL games with German announcers. I can say the German announcers were excellent. German is my second language, so I can understand them. They knew the game every bit as well as American announcers, and they covered it with excitement and passion. I was thinking if I needed to watch an NFL game in German, it would be no problem. They don't always get American stuff right in Germany, but these announcers certainly did. If the public in Germany understood our brand of football as well as those announcers did, I believe it would be a popular sport there. There are some things American that Germany totally messes up. I saw the original Star Trek dubbed into German and it was awful. That exciting intro that William Shatner did with such passage and drama "Space, the final frontier ..." is atrocious in the German version. It sounds like a Germany university professor giving the same lecture he's given for 20 years and is bored stiff of. But the German NFL announcers were outstanding. They compete with the best American ones, IMO.
Could NFL football become super popular in Germany? I suppose it's possible, but it's a long shot. European football, aka soccer, is king there. Practically everyone there loves it and longs for Germany to win another World Cup. I suspect at best American football could be a loved curiosity in Germany.
Well OK then. Lets all toast to a "thousand year hike"......too soon???
I'll be here all week folks
We would be thanked for going, and then rewarded with 4-5 calls against us that never ever seen before against any other team....Jerry needs to start telling the Goon to go **** himself whenever he is asked for anymore favors....it does him ZERO good!!! I'm honestly surprised we still are allowed to play at home every thanksgiving....thought that would have been taken away from us by now.
Spare a thought for UK fans. A 1pm game is 6pm for us. (ideal) A 4.25pm game is 9.25pm and a late finish. Any night game is middle of the night for us
Your under estimating the interest in the sport in Europe.
My ex is from England and swears that they will never fully buy into the NFL no matter how much they attempt to shove it down their throats.
Half the people at those games are Americans who made the trip.
Ruling US sports and having more money than they could ever spend isn't enough for this group of owners.
I love those early games!
Your ex is kind of right, the NFL will never overtake soccer, cricket or rugby. But the sport continues to grow in the UK. There is never any problem in selling tickets for the London games. It's not easy to get one. Most fans in stadium are from UK., I've seen a few from US but they are in minority
This doesn't really matter. Germany has like 80 million people, and they only need to fill one stadium.
Only like 1 in 100 have to have interest to sell enough tickets, and most of it will be corporate anyways.
In England, NFL football does have a small cult following, enough that at one point they published a magazine named Gridiron, UK. So they have managed to create a small following, but definitely not enough to get a London NFL team.
