The UK "May host 4 games by 2012"

4 NFL Games in London?

I think we're moving in to overkill mode here with 4 games.

I don't necessarily agree with having one game here and somebody losing out on a home game, despite "reduced transport costs" etc from the teams.

I do want the popularity increased though, the more fans, the better it is, the more coverage we get, the less of a minority sport we feel.

I'm guessing by 2012 we're going to be into a 17 game season, therefore, everybody will be required to play in "International Series Week" with 16 teams "away" one year and then "home" the next.

MNF and SNF would pretty much always have to be in Canada though because of the TV times.

I'm really not sure we'd sell Wembley out 4 times a season, the novelty factor is already wearing off this year with many people deciding not to go.

Rams @ Browns @ Wembley anybody?!?!?

f**k the UK.
Aren't the Brits tired of our s**tty "Footy-ball" already? Shouldn't the NFL start sending two competitive teams to these foreign countries? How about playoff teams from the previous year?

Remember the Mexico game? Niners vs. Cards?!
If they scale back on the preseason games, maybe, but I'm generally against this.
that's f'n stupid. Major jet lag for the players. Not only affect their play in the game over seas but the following game as well.
As long as it's not the Niners going over there, I don't give a fck

that's the thing, I'm sure every team will make their way over there within a few years. 8 teams a season.
Thats pretty stupid because nobody in the UK even gives a f**k about american football.
this all sounds RUBBISH to me lads

Exactly

If I was a team owner I would b***h and moan about it, especially with all the terrorist BS going on, wouldnt want my team at risk of being attacked by these crazy b*****ds

That's quite possibly one of the most pathetic statements I have ever read on this website. You should do more homework and take a look.

You can take your website links shove them up your ass. Because Im speaking from first hand experience. I've been to the UK many times and I have a lot of family that lives there. Trust me, there is not much support for this sport over there. Most of the tickets for these games are given away for free.
f**king stupid
