Yes, but we're in British Summer Time right now, my old fruit. Which is GMT+1. And if you forgot to carry the one when you multiplied by the hypotenuse of the reciprocal angle, then we're all stuffed. That might mean you're not even operating in the same number of dimensions as the rest of us.

But then you're Irish, so that goes without saying ;-)

Hey UK guys, if we were to have a game there do we have a big following where we could see plenty of fans on tv?

LPJ: by "we", do you mean the Redskins specifically? Every year, when the NFL plays in London, Wembley stadium is full, including back in 1992 when the Redskins played the 49ers (yes, I was there).

Of course, the Redskins have generally been crap in the years since then, but are still one of the best supported NFL teams in this country, mainly because they were one of the powerhouse franchises when the NFL finally broke through on this side of the pond.

But any NFL game played in the UK is likely to be attended by a mix of fans of all teams, rather than just being split between fans of the two teams playing on the day. So, if you were expecting to see 50,000 Redskins fans at Wembley, you'd be disappointed. But the place would be full, as it is every year.

I looked at something a while back that said the Patriots were the best supported side over here, which surprised me a bit.

The Redskins were in the top 5.

The 49ers, Cowboys, Bears, Giants and Dolphins are right up there as well.

But there is a lot of scope to grow a fan base, many people over here like the game but feel no real ties to a team. What the Rams are doing is quite smart by playing 3 years in a row over here, could lead to something with some smart marketing.

Big surprise. Almost as surprising as the fact they had zero fans when Tony Eason was at QB. Lol.

I'm stunned Redskins are recognizing Fred Davis as 2011 offensive player of the year. Production was great but HE WAS SUSPENDED FOR DRUGS.
