New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Says London Is Ready For An NFL Team
As the NFL is preparing for its sixth regular season game in London, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft told thousands of fans at the league’s FanFest rally in Trafalgar Square on Saturday that he believed the city was ready for a team of their own.
Kraft told the crowd, “you’re already hosting the premier league and we believe we’re the premier sport in the world. I think London has shown with the way they’ve handled the Olympics and every other major sporting event that it’s time for you to have your own NFL franchise based in London.”
Kraft’s Patriots are set to take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon in the NFL’s 2012 edition of the International Series in London’s famed Wimbley Stadium, which should be a very entertaining contest between two teams who both bring different aspects to the game.
The city of London will definitely have to wait in line for their own NFL franchise however, due to the fact that there is a certain major city located on the west coast of the United States that has been without their own franchise for almost 20 years now. Los Angeles has already prepared a proposal to build a new $800 million, 75,000-seat state-of-the-art professional football stadium along the hills between the interchange of highways 57 and 60, just five miles from the Orange and San Bernardino county borders.
It would be interesting to have an NFL franchise located outside of the country but I’m not quite sure how the players would react having to travel so far for games. Some players already aren’t fond of traveling there just once per season, so it would definitely taking some getting use to doing it eight times each season.
