Well, apparently someone made a Wikipedia article about the idea of an NFL team in London even though at this stage, nothing seems to be set in stone.

Nonetheless, if there was going to be an NFL team in London, what would you name it?

I would name it the London Guard (yes, without an s at the end). The red-coated palace guards are a British cultural icon, and guard is also a position in football.

I remember seeing something about NFL's first invasion into Britain TV:

Even for a country that watches Australian rugby, the Brits had NO IDEA at the time how American football was played, and maybe less than Americans have about Cricket.
(Between the concept and the strategies, Ameriball's not an easy game to grasp if you hadn't played it in high school--Even my mom over here could never figure out the basic point of the game, until I showed her an EA videogame version.)

One way they were able to sell it on British TV was to hire a host who didn't understand the game either, and offered "Okay, I think I've figured out what's going on here!" commentary to the equally confused public.
