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!

I think I know what you mean, but starting smaller would be London. Mex City is just under/over 9 million people.

Mexico? Who in their right mind would buy tickets to the game.

Mexicans are living in the middle of a drug-fueled war zone.

It's almost like walking around Pakistan.

Yeah Seattle to Miami is basically traveling from NYC to London but its the amount of times a London team would have to do it. Not to mention if a West Coast team was playing them.

Yes, it is stupid, and there are a bunch of negatives to having a team in England, but there is one thing that to the league and players that would outweigh the negatives: $$$$$

Simple as that.

Players who get to have a job in the NFL and who are getting a cut of the extra revenue. "Want" and "will do it for the $" are different things.

well of course. But that team would have problems competing on the road I'd think, NFL Sunday full of jet lagged players, dumb.

A team in London? Didn't Tom Brady and Peter Griffin already settle this? They did shower together.

I can't see them adding a "normal" team over there like that. It'd just be too hard to have a team like that play 16 games against teams that are a minimum of a 6-hour flight away.
