Please Stop These[London]Games

Yes I'm gonna say it NO MORE OVERSEAS NFL GAMES..why is the league trying to force American football down the throats of the Europeans,two things-they take the game away from an NFL city and it's fans to see it live,and Europe is about soccer..yes I'm old school and want the game to stay here!!

you're a bit of a whiner aren't ya matey.

but seriously, what does it matter. Jacksonville will probably end up in England. The league will buy a new low-boom version of the Concorde to fly the teams over the pond. And Amurica will rule the old country forever!!!

Yes, Europe is about soccer. That must be the reason why there are close to 200 American Football clubs in Germany alone - and most of them include more than one team (Adult Men, Youth and a small amount of Women teams).

Additionally, there are a lot of teams in other countries, too. And every single London Game has been sold out.

This does not mean I necessarily argue for the London Games (even though I attended two of them), but Europe is definately not only about soccer. Itīs way bigger, yes. But not the single focus.

Edit: also, nothing is being forced down our throats. Noone is forced to go there.

Guess what... as long as people keep going to these games the NFL will keep having them. Expansion overseas is going to happen eventually. It's dumb for any business to not explore untapped markets. Suck it up buttercup.

Two facts:
1) There are 7.4 billion people in the world. There are only 325 million in the US.
2) Worldwide GDP: 77 billion dollars, US GDP 19.3billion.

Why is the NFL going to London?

To make more money. Globally the market is 22x bigger and 4x more $$.
--- Growing the market in the US will give them a little more money.
--- Getting just a little bit of interest globally would be a LOT more money.

Just a reminder that if the owners revenue goes up players salary cap goes up to.

Re: Please Stop These[London]Games

Wembley and Twickenham are PACKED for each and every game played there. Saw the Redskins play the Bengals there, great experience, bought my ticket the minute they were available, lower sections were sold out in 10 minutes.

Plus every body keeps complaining about FedEx, how many games did you attend last year? How is one game every now and then hurting you?

In other words: go home, you're drunk.

Europe is not just Futbol. Rugby is huge. Rugby is a fantastic sport. Every bit as physical and team oriented as the NFL. Reggie White = prop. Barry Sanders = scrum half. lol
