PostSubject: Kraft Calls For UK Team..(NFL)   Tue Jul 03, 2012 3:04 am

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has
insisted that he would like to see the United Kingdom have its own NFL
team within the next 10 years.

Speaking on a promotional tour of London ahead of his team's NFL
International Series meeting with the St. Louis Rams at Wembley Stadium
on Sunday October 28, the influential Kraft stressed the importance of
growing American football overseas.

"I personally think we should have a franchise in London and that is
something I am going to push for," Kraft said. "I think I said that the
last time we were over here in 2009 and before this next decade is out, I
hope we have a team here. I think that would be right for the NFL and
this fan base has proven they deserve it.

"I think we're starting to tap out in the United States. If you look
at the last Super Bowl we were in this past season, we had over 180
million people watching - that's almost two thirds of America. So for us
to grow the game, we have to expand globally. Having seen the kind of
support we have received here in London, it is the intention of the NFL
owners to get two games here, starting next year.
