NFL Expansion... London?

I get the reasons why the NFL wants to expand into new markets, but London? How far away are we from having teams in Mexico and Canada as well?

I think it's a mistake, personally and something that would damage what they have rolling right now with the league. Keep having your games overseas, but a franchise?

C'mon man!

With the Chiefs luck they'd crash in the ****ing ocean and only Clark, Pioli, Romeo and Cassel would survive.

Seriously, **** Roger Goodell. This an extraordinarily stupid idea. Gives huge home field advantage to the team in London, and huge visitor disadvantage to the team in London.

Make changes that make the game more competitive, not the ones that make the game more profitable.

Even goodell cant possibly be hardheaded & stupid enough to attempt this.

The NFL is 10 foot surge awash in money, its the hands down most popular pro sport in the nation... no way he needs to "open the european market"... he's been the one used to doling out the heat lately, but if he even tried this he'd find himself in a stewpot.

I feel like the NFL is exploring all of this because it feels like it is reached a tipping point in how much money it can get from NFL fans. There are only so many possible fans...so much merchandise...so many tickets. They have been wildly successful but they have saturated their market and they want to go somewhere that has new money.

The problem is that this is a pure business decision even if it completely compromises the game.

Do you realize that San Fran is a 13 hour flight away and a 7 hour time difference? Or are we proposing that London never have to play the NFC West?

If America, Mexico & Canada dont provide enough money to keep everyone happy, then **** the NFL.

IMHO

I am not advocating for it.

Doing it would be so "NFL" though.

NFL wants those overseas viewers so bad.

This is a site that was made specifically for UK'ers new to the game and to the league. Gives you a crash course about the game and a general idea about each team to choose one as your favorite.

Zach and I completely agree on something.

Too bad we can't just ship Goodell to London and make him stay there.

I am not a fan of his but this is more than him. It is just a huge league that has been absolutely flooded with money.

Money ****ing ruins everything.

As we are learning on many levels.

I don't want expansion, screw expansion. 4x4 per league is perfect.

If an owner wants to move his team to London though... well, good luck. Its his business, as long as its not an AFC West team.
