  • NFL Europa folds after 16 years

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....ap/index.html

    FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- The NFL's development league in Europe folded Friday after 16 years.

    The decision came less than a week after the Hamburg Sea Devils beat the Frankfurt Galaxy 37-28 in the World Bowl XV in Frankfurt, spokesman Maik Matischak said.

    The league began in 1991. Five of its six teams were based in Germany, with the Amsterdam Admirals completing the field.

      I believe the whole NFL game in London is supposed to help promote the World League/new NFL Europa league.

          "A statement on the German-language edition of the NFL's Web site said the NFL decided to concentrate its "strategies and resources" on regular-season games outside the United States in an effort to reach as many people as possible."

          "From now on we will focus on regular-season games and use new technologies to make NFL more popular worldwide," he said.

            This is gonna screw a lot of players over. To some, NFLE is all they have to make it.

                Canada and Arena are nothing like the NFL game, in canada the field is really wide, in Arena, it is short and less players. I hope the come up with a new league or it will be hard for a lot of upcoming NFL prospects to stay on a team and prove themselves.

                  I hope this means the end of the 17th international game for each team.
                  "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

                      Actually this means that the 17th game is an inevitability. If you're going to make the world interested in the NFL, you give them the real deal, not a watered down version of it. Expanding worldwide is necessary.

                        I'm sure a new league will be coming. I wasn't surprised to hear the news of NFLE folding, due to amount of disinterest that the league generated.
