SUPER BOWL IZ BETTAR :i am genuinely amused: :i am genuinely amused:
The NFL are desperately trying to shoe-horn a European franchise over here and have been for some time but whilst there are 4 quarters, constant breaks in play and two completely different sets of players on the field depending on who's attacking and defending it will never catch on.
Also the fact that the ball can travel forwards 1 yard and then the play stops is a massive hindrance over here where we are used to someone being able to pick the ball up and carry on running.
Surprisingly popular over here mate,a London based franchise would be huge,would get 70,000
attendances easily...ask around at footie next time you'd be surprised how many of us have a
NFL team we follow.......Love rugby.....But also love watching this....
Bit like cricket, in that the more you understand whats going on,the more enjoyable a watch it is.
When I was a Football mad kid and we started playing rugby at School...I Remember saying to my
mate,What Kinda fucked up game is this,where you can only pass the F.in ball backwards...
Month later in the team (Flanker) loved it.....
