I like to watch it. NFLE helps pass the time in the offseason.

If the NFL was smart, they would bring the league to US cities that do not have NFL teams...

^That's actually a great idea. Would be a lot more interesting than NFLE too because of the hometown heroes and increased fan bases.

If it were in the US, not only would they sell more tickets... but also merch.

The NFL could be it's own competition so to speak.

Well it would be like A-AAA ball in baseball. Where smaller markets get minor league teams. They wouldn't be direct competition with the NFL, but rather would be another utility at thier disposal.

They tried that when the league began, it was actually a mixture of North American Cities and European Cities. They had a team in the NY market but the other teams were in Montreal, columbus, Orlando, London, Raleigh-Durham, Sacramento, San Antonio, Birmingham and Frankfurt. That league lasted 2 years before they shut down and reformed w/ only European Cities.

I went to a couple of NY/NJ Knights games, they were fun. I liked the old WLAF and the USFL.

Why? In order to keep the UFL from its inevitable failure?

I agree. Just when the NFL was starting to build a following. Kind of why they can play a game between the Dolphins and Gmen across the water

Hi everybody, I´m from Frankfurt/Germany and I am a big fan of Galaxy and the Dolphins.
I hope that this league will stay over here, because there are a lot of football-fans over here. I know we have only the player´s in 3. row but for us it´s at least something they show us live. I go every year to 1 game in Miami but it is a big difference. Shure I see the "good players" but the party
around the game and at the game over here in Frankfurt is much better. We have so much stuff with us to make noise, it´s really loud in Frankfurt.
I understand that the people in the US are not much interessed in our games over here, but we love them. I be this year in Miami when the play in London. Funny, one hour flight away, but I already ordert my tickets for the New England game and booked my flight bevor that game came out.
All I want to say is "we love NFL Europa" .

Ummm...no...Silly Pats fan.

The USFL COMPETED with the NFL for players. NFL Europe is a developmental league OWNED by the NFL...

I would love minor league football teams. Make it like the D league for the NBA or farm teams for MLB. I'd go watch games.
