StubHub UK really over-hyped the NFL games in London
American football is about as foreign to Brits as cricket is to Americans, so to help prospective attendees in the UK, StubHub wrote up a quick explanation of why they should go watch teams like the Raiders and Jaguars.
StubHub describes the three London games (Raiders-Dolphins, Lions-Falcons and Jaguars-Cowboys) as "three season-defining matches of unbelievable quality." This is patently false.
It also describes the Raiders and Dolphins, with one playoff appearance between them since 2002, as teams with "lofty expectations."
By far the saddest thing is the way StubHub describes the Jaguars as "the team fast becoming fan favourites in the UK." Oh no.
