Yup. Europa is dead.

People over here won't buy into a second rate version of a pro-game, just because the teams are based in European cities.

I think they could definitely sell more football to Europe with proper match-ups like the Dolphins/Giants, though.

I always thought Ice Hockey should do well here too (as a viewer sport - we suck at playing it)

Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
