A Super Bowl in London ? That's like having an FA Cup Final in New York or a Grand National in Louisville. It's just not right and fans would be up in arms I should think and not just fans of whichever teams make it to the Super Bowl.
Can you imagine supporters of Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea etc jumping up and down with excitement at reaching an FA Cup Final when they know it would then mean a trip across the pond to watch it ? I doubt the jumping up and down would be pleasure based.
Although the Super Bowl hasn't the history or tradition of an FA Cup Final and that it already takes place in a different city each year, it's still such an iconic Amercian sporting event that I just can't believe the NFL would agree to holding it anywhere outside America.
And London in January ? Are they mad ?!!!!
The next three SB locations are set in stone already so it would be at least 4 years before London would be up for consideration anyway and that's a long time in sporting terms. I suspect it's a PR stunt of some kind but can you imagine if it DID happen and the BBC managed to buy the exclusive rights to it ? We could watch a Super Bowl here with no adverts !!!
Even if Jonathan Ross and Terry Wogan etc gave up a month of their salaries, I doubt Auntie Beeb could afford such coverage anyway so the big advertisers can breath easy.
Give us the odd NFL game by all means (it's The Bucks v The Patriots this October) but let Amercia keep their Super Bowl cause you know what'll happen next ?
That's right, they'll be wanting to enter the Eurovision Song Contest and we're not havin' it. No, no, no.
Israel maybe but not America.
