    This must be something pretty new. Anyway, I've never heard of it before, and it certainly won't be indicative of our best players. College players who finish their eligibility and are good enough to go pro, go to the NFL. NFL teams aren't going to let their players compete in something like this I would imagine.

    wow, I didn't even know american football was big enough in other countries to have one of these

    but yeah, I can't really see most of the american players taking it seriously...but who knows what could happen

    In soccer? We were there, but we just laid down and died.

    He was referring to the fact that USA has never fielded a national team for the World Cup of AMERICAN Football.

    Wow, I guess American Football was already kinda competitive before Eyeshield 21... America has lots of people who would love to play football competively that don't make the cut to the NFL. They wouldn't be as talented but they'd still have the passion, hopefully. This could be a repeat of the Olympic Basketball team in the worst possible scenario.

    In that case, teams have way too much money tied up into their players to let them go play in something like this. Not that I really blame them.

    One other important detail: this will not have NFL players. It's D2 College players for the US.

    If there were NFL players, it would be a massacre.
