    They would like a team there. The Jaguars may be the most likely because:

    1) Their owner - Mr. Kahn - has ownership in one of the EPL teams.

    2) They've played the most games in London since the NFL has had games over there (most likely due to #1)

    3) They're one of the teams potentially on the move to change cities in the US. They're really a smaller franchise, so killing their current fanbase and replacing it with another one wouldn't be as egregious as doing it to one of the premier teams in New England, New York, Dallas, San Francisco or Pittsburgh.

    4) They're also one of my favorite teams (this is no way related to the first 3 points).

    Logistically speaking, it's a nightmare to have 8 regular season games in London, becuase it makes travel a headache for not only the home team, but the road team as well. But the NFL likes to make money, so I'm sure they'll try it.

    Didn't know all that, mainly because I don't really care...

    I don't follow any of this stuff in any sport and when it comes on the news I turn the channel or tune out.

    Saying that, nothing would hurt American pride more than having an international team win the Superbowl.

    Even I'd watch that!

    Not interested in sports? Then what do you do? I can't imagine Tuesdays/Wednesday without a Champions League, or weekends without Bundesliga, or all year European/World cup qualifiers.
    But i kinda hear you, you Americans copy-pasted our sport's name, took it and re-named the original one as 'soccer', yuk, damn you!!! Heheh :d

    And a question just out of curiosity, cause i know nothing about 'football', the superbowl is something like a league's finals? Or what?

    Football's all over the world, in many shapes apparently, but i can't remember anyone but Europeans playing Handball, and few North African countries.

    Due to the US having the popularity it does and the amount of Americans and Canadians living overseas US style football has become popular in many places other than the US. Including even some local teams.

    Same goes for ice hockey, basketball and baseball.

    This has been helped with having them in the movies and media outlets showing these sports overseas.

    The world is a lot smaller than you think.

    You'd be surprised by the amount of attention NFL gets elsewhere in the world.

    Ignorance, there is a cure.
    I honestly had no idea. Most of the time I think the world sees football as watered down rugby. I leaned something new today ... Thanks

    I don't know if I should call myself Canadian anymore. Last time I was in Canada I felt like a foreigner. it's been 12 years since i lived there after all.

    Though I still have a Canadian accent I've noticed it can vary depending on who I'm talking to. Some people have no idea where I'm from sometimes. I have a hodgepodge of Canadian, Australian and British now...

    Yeah the Superbowl is the final game of the NFL season.

    To be clear I get the whole caught up in the moment thing about sports. I have played sports, watched sports and been to sports games.

    However, I know that the hype machines of sports is purely about distraction, no different than what the Roman emperors did with sport. Why do you think politicians are so interested in maintaining sports?

    The amount of money and air time given over to sports is simply crazy. I find it sad when I overhear conversations about sport and how people are so engaged in justifying the costs and worthiness of players and teams.

    Councils rather spend more on sports teams than in infrastructure, housing and other community benefits. To me that's backwards.

    I won't go into what happens in the US high schools and colleges as I find it sickening.

    So yeah I don't see much benefit in sport on the whole. I would appreciate it more if it was a community builder but it isn't.

    American football and rugby are similar but there are some distinct differences.

    Whether one can say American football is watered downed rugby is debatable. There are probably about the same amount of rules. The main difference is that the tactical side of American football is grossly over emphasised and the difference in having an offensive line and defensive line which allows the over emphasising. The amount of stop plays in American football is also a big difference.

    Totally agree on that. It is sick for me to see how one guy gets payed around 100.000.000 for 5 years. I mean, it's insane.
    All sports are now a very profitable industry rather then, well, sports.
    But no matter how much we're aware of all this nothing will change, we're addicted to sports, at least i am.

    Oh, one more question. So Superbowl is the league's final game, between whom? First and second on the table, or there are two leagues or something?
    Cause in European football only cups have finals, and tournaments with combined group and knock-out stage.

    In NFL there are two leagues. The teams that become the champions of their league play the Superbowl.

    There's a lot of elimination and so on along the way.
