NFL meet Rugby

The NFL announced a partnership with the Rugby Premier League to bring rugby to the US during the football off season.

This is smart on the NFL’s part for two reasons: First Rugby appears to be on the upswing in terms of popularity and owning the US Rugby League could mean lots of dollars in the future. Second this would give NFL fans something similar to football to watch just when they are missing the NFL.
