LFL Going Outside the U.S

The LFL has canceled its 2012 season to change into a summer/spring sport unlike the normal fall football.   They also postponed the season to expand nationally.  the LFL plans on creating leagues in Europe, Canada and Australia, so are spending the year off preparing for the expansion.  LFL Canada (Fall 2012) and LFL Australia (Summer 2013) and Europe (2014) are scheduled into the next seasons, involving World Bowls.  The hiatus will also allow the league to concentrate on launching in Canada this fall and free U.S. players to participate in a promotional all-star tour.  The LFL is looking for the sport to be international and states the other countries are interested in the sport.  I am shocked by this.  We all know men in the U.S love sex appeal and women but is shocking to see other countries in interest to this.  The LFL said the sport is growing so fast and is popular that it needs to expand out to further countries, but most people have never heard of it.  For me, i don’t see how a league like this could grow such popularity to move to different countries to increase participation.  I feel as something happened or something is kept from the public on why they are branching out to other countries.  The main offices of the LHL will be moving to Australia.  If all is good in the United States then why move it out of the country if there is such a success here?  If the LHL was such a popular success I feel it would be in states all over the country, not just have eleven teams.
