It's an indicator but certainly not the sole factor. Should we assume that the NFL would fail in Birmingham or San Antonio because their WLAF teams drew poorly?
London 40,481; New York-New Jersey 32,380; Montreal 31,882; Frankfurt 29,856; Barcelona 29,002; Birmingham 25,500; Orlando 19,537; Sacramento 17,994; San Antonio 14,853; Raleigh-Durham 12,066;
I think games would do very well in Germany, but that doesn't mean that London is a sham. The NFL has come a long way in a very short time there.
