London calling - Why Tottenham is building its new soccer stadium with NFL in mind

That is a big reason why Mark Waller, the NFL's executive vice president of international, told ESPN.com earlier this year that he could see the league putting a team in London by 2020 "if the ownership decided that was something we wanted to do."
The NFL has been building a fan base in England since it started its International Series there in 2007. The league has held 14 regular-season games in London -- all at Wembley Stadium -- and will hold three more there this season, including one at Twickenham Stadium, home of England's national rugby team.
Starting in 2018, the NFL will hold at least two games at Tottenham's as-yet-named stadium for a 10-year period, although Levy said, "We've encouraged them to engage with us in a wider way."

If London wants to throw its money in the toilet for this Dooshbag Goodell, let them. They'll regret it

Trust me after watching the game at my local pub, there's no way the NFL will be very popular in the UK. So many bloody stoppages during the game.

I heard a rumor in Ireland that the NFL may have a game at Croke Park in Dublin. It holds 82,000. I've been there and the field is huge due to Gaelic Football and hurling. It is 140 years long by 90 yards wide. Standing on the sideline, the difference between the normal 55 yards and the 90 yards is amazing... Heard the Patriots may play there next year. They have had college football there over the years: Notre Dame, Boston College...
