Tomorrow, the New England Patriots are scheduled to play the St. Louis Rams in Britainís famed Wembley Stadium. The game is expected to draw a large crowd, and if Patsí owner Robert Kraft is to be believed, Londoners would fill the complex at least eight times a year if they had their own team.

Speaking at a raucous rally in Trafalgar Square, the mogul said it's time for the NFL to expand to Europe. According to ESPN, he said the Olympics and the premier league have proven our friends across the pond can put on a hell of a show, and they should be rewarded.

To date, the league has held five regular season games in London, and starting next year, the Jacksonville Jaguars will play a contest there during each of the next four seasons in order to hopefully build up a fanbase. On the one hand, itís in the NFLís best interest to expand and attract as many eyeballs as possible. Travel will only get faster and easier in the future, and some leagues will eventually cross continents. On the other hand, going to London is a practical nightmare right now. Thereís a time change. One of the teams loses one of its eight home games, and the entire weekly routine is thrown off.

I like the idea of going to London, but Iím not sure the league is ready. What do you think? Should London have its own NFL team? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll belowÖ
