Now that’s the endorsement the NFL was looking for…
Does a New York Giants linebacker saying the London game was beneficial to the team’s Superbowl challenge, make the NFL smile?
You bet it does.
The fact that the New York Giants made it all the way to the Superbowl was a bit of a coup for the NFL and for Britain. In one season the Giants have shown the rest of the NFL that playing an international series game is not detrimental in any way.
You know what the biggest complaint from the British fans was after the Wembley game?
“Not enough merchandise available” – I kid you not.
The NFL loves the UK. And you know what? The UK loves the NFL right back.
