LONDON -- Since First Coast Sports Anchor Chris Porter arrived in London early Sunday morning, there has been a lot of talk about whether the NFL is looking to put a team in London.
One thing is for sure, it won't be the Jacksonville Jaguars.
On Wednesday, during an one-on-one interview with First Coast News Anchor Lewis Turner, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said the Jaguars aren't moving anywhere.
Khan said the purpose of the Jaguars playing in London the next four years is to broaden the team's fan base and hopefully bring people to the city of Jacksonville.
But it appears the NFL is up to something. Next season's targeting the wrong city.
The people in London know little about American Football and while there are more than 80,000 in attendance at the annual NFL games, that wouldn't translate over the course of a season.
The Jaguars players have mixed feeling about an NFL franchise in London. Some say it would be a great idea, but others don't agree, saying the travel would be too much on the body.
The bottom line is, the league has some type of long term plan in place because of the investment it has made and is making in London.
But only time will tell if that long term plan is to expand to London.
