Would an NFL Franchise in the UK work?

I have been writing an article for a UK newspaper on this subject and wanted to know generally whether anyone could see a London team working? Aside from the obvious logistical problems, would Americans be happy to share the league? Obviously it is a big step up from having one or two games played in a certain country.

I was at the Rams/Patriots game at Wembley on Sunday and afterwards went to the local pub. I met the Chairman of media relations from the Jacksonville Jaguars and he was hoping to make the pub a Jaguars fan point for their games in London over the next few years. It was interesting to hear how excited he was about the prospect but also understandable as they are under new ownership and probably want to push as much publicity as possible. Apologies if this isn't interesting I just wanted to gauge what the opinion was from NFL fans, as opposed to British soccer fans.

Thank you
