I heard Alabama could already beat any Chineese team. What's the sport in that?

Most of the world simply doesn't like American football because 1. they don't understand it and 2. it flows differently and has a lot of stops or breaks in the action. Now I think that IF overseas fans took the time to understand the game they might like it more. However I doubt they will spend any money on learning it because it's a friggen game. They will instead go and watch their favorite soccer team.
Totally agree. It was a pain in the ass growing up (during the SB years I used to get my aunt to send me tapes of regular season games from CO that arrived two weeks late then I moved to GamePass radio before we actually got regular season day time games).

France has no interest in the NFL, they're an NBA loving country.

Germany would take a franchise like a shot and would have as much fanbase interest as the UK.

Maybe the NFL can talk Carnival into building a stadium into one of their cruise ships.

In the meantime, why don't they just play some games on an aircraft carrier?

Well on a personal level that makes sense for you, I guess. For the average American, though, an international effort is a bad thing.

I don't really like the games in London but the first time they put a team in a foreign country will be the end of football for me. Just so frustrated with the continual money grabs to the detriment of the sport. Sometimes I already feel like I'm hanging around for tradition as much as anything when I see some of the terrible rule adjustments they've made over the last few years.

Didn't say it was one team, but 10 game would be rotation.

there is apparently a 60000 seater stadium being built in Lyon by the owner of the soccer club who loves football

germany makes more sense to me but the sport is that big there they are apparently worried the NFL would kill its fanbase domestically
