I'd like to know the real deal in how American football is viewed in countries outside of the U.S. particularly the NFL. Is their any real following, that goes beyond a handful of ex-patriates for example? Are the broadcasts all late night UHF channel stuff. Are kids routinely seen tossing a football, or playing pick-up games? Do you see NFL jerseys on anything but fat american tourists? Are there sports bars that have all the games showing and a bunch of rowdy cliques of fans that attend these? What's the honest-to gawd truth of the way this game and the NFL are viewed abroad? Thanks, graci, mer-cy, dunka-shain, webien, etc.
