Hi guys,

just wondering if anyone would give up their current team to support a London based franchise...

I wouldn't give up my love for the Bengals, but a London franchise would become a very firm number 2 team, and I'd support them against anyone BUT the Bengals.

So it's not a true YES, but it's as good I think you're gonna get

no I'd stick. Not keen on a London franchise as I'm not convinced its viable. Would rather see NFL Europe resurrected but not with 5 German teams.

This, but with the 9ers replacing the Bungles obviously.

It'd be my second team, but agreed. There's too many hurdles to overcome

My thought for a reborn NFLE would be the 5 German teams, the Admirals, the Monarchs, Claymores, and new teams in Manchester and either Cardiff or Dublin.

Depends on what you mean by "support" . I would follow and hope they do well etc as a second B team but I doubt I'd make the effort to travel to London to watch unless they were playing 49ers or prices were cheap enough to warrant the effort once or twice a season. Its assumed they play at Wembley but that wouldn't necessarily be the case!
