If you only live on the Internet you will gather that most European countries dislike American Football for whatever reason. This is evident on social media and general forums. Especially those in the UK. I thought this was 100% true until I recently visited London.
In real life these sentiments you find on the internet seem completely false. I was in London for a week this past month on a business trip and on a down day I was out and about and had multiple positive comments on my Baltimore Ravens jersey that I had packed in plans of doing this sort of social experiment. I thought maybe the team was only recognizable to some because they are playing in London this season. I got to talking to a fan who invited me to visit a pub called Bodeans Soho, that also serves some excellent BBQ. So as an American of course I was drawn to some good BBQ. The Place was packed with rowdy NFL fans watching a preseason game. A freaking PRESEASON game. Talking to these London natives about players and teams made me feel like I had never left the US as their knowledge and love for the sport was totally unexpected.
I was told the English love the NFL and that Wembley Stadium is always at capacity when the NFL visits each season. (90k-100k) fans for each game attend. Its pretty incredible given If you take the internet at face value you would get a totally different story. I understand Football is the wolds sport first but I think its awesome we can all enjoy different sports together. There is massive amount of "soccer" fans here in the US and lots that follow the European leagues as well.
