NFL game in England 2006

The NFL is doing a lot of work here to bring a regular season game to the new Wembley stadium in the UK in 2006. There is still a lot of work to do and it may not come to anything, BUT football is becoming more popular again after a few years of only the hardcore fans watching. To have a game here would really kick start the game in UK again. One problem is the travel distance so it would make sense to use teams from East coast. I know season ticket Skins fans would not be happy to loose a home game and i know no other team would like to loose a home game to us limmeys. But it would sell out and for us UK NFL fans a dream come true. At the moment on the nfluk.com site the skins are leading the votes of teams UK fans would like to see. I live in hope

Re: NFL game in England 2006

No one is going to Cardinal home games and everyone thought 49's would suck pretty badly. Iím pretty sure the NFL was thinking the same too when they choose those two teams to play in Mexico. I can't see two good teams agreeing to play away from home. Still, I'm all for having the Giants or the Eagles play in England :p

Agreed. They can be the "home" team in England.
