Frankfurt Galaxy Wins The World Bowl!

Sun Jun 15, 2003 5:34 am

The Frankfurt Galaxy have become the first NFL Europe franchise to win three World Bowls as they have defeated the Rhein Fire 35-16 in World Bowl XI at Hampden Park in Glasgow. The Galaxy jumped out to an 25-9 halftime lead and never looked back while cruising to their first title since 1999.

Running back Jonas Lewis rushed for 126 yard and a touchdown and was named the games MVP as the Galaxy's offense proved to be too much for the Rhein Fire defense to handle.

Would the NFL Europe teams stand a chance against the American college teams?

Welcome to Europe. American Football is not very popular here, unfortunately.

By the way, is there a New York Giants match in New York next weekend? I am in New York and I would love to watch a live football match (or any other sport highlight like baseball or basketball)

Thanks KROC! If I have time I will go and watch a match but my time in New York is very limited, I will arrive on Saturday and already leave on Monday.

The NFL season in America runs from August (preseason games) to January (Super Bowl)...tickets are typically very hard to get and also ridiculously expensive as there arent that many games compared to other sports and due to the immense popularity of the NFL here...

As to an NFL Europe team versus a college...it would be interesting...fairly evenly matched I think, considering that most of the players are American and played in college but the fact that the NFLE players have a little more experience would have me lean towards them...

The NFLE would probably win, I know a fair amount of NFLers play in NFLE during the off season. If you look at the back of their helmets, their NFL team's logo is listed or it used to be at least.

NFLE is full of NFLers that will be bagging groceries when the season starts. College would win.

NFL Europe? I didn't even know it existed!

What's next? The North American Cricket League?

NFLE is still around?!?!?!?! Ya think the NFL could get a closer farm system. North American football will never catch on in Europe. Soccer is King.

Too bad the Cincinnati Bengals weren't allowed in the NFLE this season, they might have played .500 ball.

Go Browns.

Not a bad crowd at Hampden for the game - around 28,100. This was higher than most of the attendances for the Euro 2004 soccer qualifiers last week, but only about half of the number that turned out to watch Scotland v Germany at the same stadium. About 10,000 Germans made the journey for the World Bowl. It made Page 11 of the sports section in the main nationals in Scotland.

Better crowd than I thought they'd get, but well down the list of priorities compared to the US Masters, Rugby tests, shinty and general fitbaw coverage in the media.
