Originally posted by darvlayI like muddy games, but it would have been nice to see a more evenly matched teams for once in Europe, but still it was better than a pre-season game. It might not have been one of the best games but it wasn't that bad either. It really would be nice to see some real World competition if The Europeans can take a real interest in the game. There are some pretty good Euro's playing in the NFL and I would like to see what they could do. Weather permitting, I was kind of hoping to see some British tailgater's, that would have been cool.
It ain't close anymore, by the way.
Pretty sloppy game so far.

I saw a National News piece where they said the British fan base was overwhelmingly for the Dolphins, maybe they're more likeable, or maybe they went for the underdogs.. Huge turnout, and good feelings all around from what's been reported. The game did sell out in 6 hours.. Too bad the Dolphins' season ticket holders were porked with a home game taken away, and not refunded. Since we're playing so terrible, I'm sure not much will come of it.
