NFL Europe on the other hand is very relevant to interest level. Same players, same marketing, same play the Germans were interested and the English were not.
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?

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.
