[caption id="attachment_21177" align="aligncenter" width="496"] Look at our awesome stadium! Photo via wikipedia.org[/caption] The NFL is more popular now than it ever has been. I remember trying to watch games back in the 90’s before satellite TV became the norm and it was only ever shown on Channel 4, which you may or may not know is a UK TV channel (yes I’m a Pom!). This was also before the internet became a part of our everyday lives and way before social media. Over the last few years we’ve seen the NFL try to expand to places outside the US, and so far London has become the forefront of this expansion -- it has hosted one regular season game at Wembley Stadium every year since 2007. Next season will be the first time two regular season games will be held outside the US, and from 2013 the Jacksonville Jaguars will host one regular season game abroad for the next four years. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft also recently expressed his desire to see an NFL franchise in London within the next 10 years. If this happens, what does it mean for Australia? Could we see NFL games, even if they're just pre-season games, being held in Australia? Can the NFL attract the big crowds like it has done in London with 80,000+ attending games at Wembley Stadium? Some people may think this isn’t possible, myself included -- but then again, I didn’t think the games in London would attract 80,000+ either, so what do I know? Ed Wyatt, columnist for Back Page Lead, doesn't believe the NFL's continued presence in London is good news for Australian NFL fans. If the NFL really is serious about expanding to other countries and growing the game globally, it has to show it has countries other than the UK in mind. I think I speak for all of us when I say I hope to see at least a pre-season game being held in Sydney, for example, within the next five years. Agree or disagree? When can we expect to see NFL games in Australia?
