NFL's effect in the United Kingdom?

Now I for one, LOVE the Premier League soccer that my country produces, but weirdly, I still prefer NFL, that you guys in the States produce!

I just wanted to know if there were any other NFL fans from the United Kingdom, and what teams do you guys support? Mines obviously in my signature, THE COWBOYS! Also I found a list of the most supported NFL teams in the UK, here's what I found:

Patriots 20,200
Dolphins 15,100
Eagles 11,600
49ers 10,500
Giants 10,300
Cowboys 10,300
Redskins 10,300
Packers 10,100
Bears 10,100
Raiders 9,400
Steelers 9,000
Falcons 9,000
Colts 8,300
Broncos 6,800
Buccaneers 6,800
Seahawks 6,600
Rams 6,200
Jets 5,300
Bengals 4,900
Vikings 3,800
Panthers 3,800
Ravens 3,500
Chargers 3,500
Titans 2,700
Saints 2,500
Chiefs 2,200
Bills 2,200
Browns 2,200
Jaguars 2,000
Lions 1,400
Cardinals 1,300
Texans 1,100

So you're from England but you call football soccer?

Seems legit.

Re: NFL's effect in the United Kingdom?

I can't believe that many people over here can put up with the shit that is American Football. Both times I've tried to get into it in watching the last two Superbowls I couldn't believe how tedious it is. It drags on beyond belief, play's stopped for so long, it's boring as hell and then there's the constant breaks. I can't understand why anyone over here would like it. Let the Americans have it. No other country plays it and it's no fucking loss. Try watching Aussie Rules if you like watching something with similar rules with one difference, it doesn't put you to sleep or make you want to kill yourself for wasting even as little as 10 minutes of your life watching it.

Re: NFL's effect in the United Kingdom?

Its really growing in popularity over here, same with soccer getting more popular in the states. I know quite a few AF fans over here.


Shame that so many are pats fans.

Have always watched the Superbowl. Trying to watch the full season and learn more about the sport.

Kinda adopted Chicago as my hometown for US sports, so yeah, gotta support DA BEARS!

Oh no I generally call it football, I just say soccer on this forum because I know that most people on here are American, and American's are fucking idiots so I say soccer so they don't get confused.

Bless them.

He's just another Cowboys bandwagoner, nothing new. I've got no clue why they still get bandwagoners though, they're nothing special anymore.

Re: NFL's effect in the United Kingdom?

I'm a pats fan. When I was 8/9 watching the SB 2002 I genuinely thought that New England was an English team, so I supported them and have done ever since. I used to be just a casual fan, but for a couple of years now have loved the game week in week out. Can't wait for Wembley next month.

Pretty pissed off though tonight Hernandez is out and a poor display from the team with too many mistakes costing us, plus its never nice losing to a missed FG!

I support them because they won their last Super Bowl on the day I was born, January 28th 1996.

Cunt.
