The British Gridiron League (BGL) brings American Football to the United Kingdom and Ireland, and to Europe. With the playing of the NFL London games, the sport has gained popularity in the country. The creation of a separate league in the British Isles allows for the sport to be played there, without the NFL having to commit to having a full team there. The NFL would still play the London Series. The league would start with 10 12 teams, divided into a North Division and a South Division. The rules would be mostly the same as the NFL, *except with XFL-style kickoffs*. South Division London Knights Southampton Storm Spitfires Bristol Marauders Birmingham Cannons Cardiff Dragons Belfast Dublin Emeralds North Division Edinburgh Highlanders Kelpies Manchester Industry Liverpool Steamers Glasgow Griffons Leeds Owls Newcastle Vibe The season would run for 14 weeks, from the beginning of April through July. Each team would play each of their division opponents twice, and 3 of the teams from the other division. Each team would get one bye week. The playoffs would run over a course of four weeks, with a week between the Division Semis and Division Finals, and 2 weeks between the Division Finals and League Championship.

Just wanted to get the league concept on here.
Hi So as a Brit living here in the US I love the NFL, many at home love it too which is why we are certain to get a team in the near future especially since the NFL gave $125 million towards Tottenham Hotspurs new stadium. On that note when we do get a team what shall our name be? Colours look extra. I have had this discussion on here before and came to realize that although the natural conclusion is to go red white and blue for the national colours, on reflection too many teams in the NFL have this colour scheme. Thus for us to have a successful team we need to stand out and be unique. Another problem is most NFL UK have a team getting them to switch allegiances will be tough, however this will not happen if the team has London as its place name. Like how Boston Patriots became New England Patriots, we have to represent our whole island. Four Nations will unite us all around one team. when thinking of a symbol to unite us I looked no further than the British Bulldogs. I looked at all the teams and originally wanted to go with a ww1 British uniform colour however the colour was a bit too sickly green. Yet brown kept appearing during this period for uniforms and when I blended the dark red with the brown and silver I thought I had hit on something unique. The patch on the jersey I quickly through together but wanted the final design to have a patch that had a flower from each of the four countries in the Uk, English rose, Scottish thistle etc. The only problem i'm having is I have only just started graphic design and I'm not ready to make my own fonts yet. I really want to get tee shirts made of this concept so I can support the idera of us getting a team in the NFL but feel I need a great word mark to tie the brand together. Would any one on here be willing to make a word mark based of my idea that I could use? I would be so Grateful. Other than that let me know your thoughts on my concept, as I greatly value the community's opinion given how talented you all are. Thanks for taking the time to look
