What Does ‘NFL’ Stand For?

What Does ‘NFL’ Stand For?

Within the meandering mess that are the latest THST board to board notes, this mention of the NFL is worth noting.

  • DL confirmed that the NFL has made a ‘small capital contribution’ and there will be a 10 year rental scheme
  • It was DL’s feeling that the NFL was needed to help regenerate the area
  • DL also expected the value of naming rights to be higher as a result of interest from the American market

The 10 year deal tells us nothing sensational. The rental option may be 10 years long, but it’s clear that the 2 game per annum minimum is the only binding element right now and there is presumably a buy out clause should things not got to plan.

However, if a fire is lit and something more substantial can be created, it outs Spurs sorry ENIC in pole position.

I’m fascinated to see Levy specifically mention this deal in respect of regeneration. This blog has at some considerable length explained why the expansion of THFC will be of negligible value to Haringey. A kindly word of warning to any pompous twits planning on splaining to me how the N17 economic ecosystem will be boosted by even more whiteys who spend sod all on match days, then expect an unkind response.

Only an enhanced NFL deal will give Haringey a fighting chance of experiencing a feel good factor. The football fan spend since 1882 has done nothing to slow the slide of what’s evolved into rotten borough.

Naming rights joy will also hinge upon the NFL. It puts an entirely different spin on matters. I’m at all not familiar with our colonial cousins ‘hand-football’ malarky but I wouldn’t be shocked if the global value wasn’t on a parity with the Premier League ‘product’.

What Does ‘NFL’ Stand For? It stands for plenty.

Only IF Levy is able to recover from the New York fuck job.

    The aim is for one of the existing franchises to be based over here rather than a completely new one as I understand it. MS is more clued up about this I think, he’s probably got a better view.

    How much notice does a franchise need to give to relocate? So that we get a heads up on who is coming over? There are only 32 top levels teams in the NFL. For such a large nation that seems unusual. There are not even enough for each state to have its own club. In the circumstances are they really going to move one to the UK?

      Well college football is a huge business in the U.S. and is where all the NFL’s players come from. The University of Michigan, for example, has 110,000 attendance at each home game of which there might be 7 or 8 per year. So, the top division of college football has over 120 teams which would equate to the lower division of English football i suppose. In many states, college football is much more popular than NFL football and the fan bases are much more passionate about their team.

    Levy us angling (no fish jokes please)
    Not for the NFL (thats a red herring!) but to institute the NFL system in the PL. Namely they even up everything at tje end if the year with draft picks so not having to deal with these mega oil people to off an unreasonable success by buying fame. Using your noodle is a much better way and lwts see who comes out on top.
    We can do it with less if they let us.

    Trying to read the structure of NFL on wikipedia, does my head in. Two conferences, four regional divisions of four teams in each. I can’t really see where the Tottenham stadium could fit in to this structure as the home of a franchise.

    So will it just host two visiting sides twice a year?
