I'm cool with the London games. My team played it this year and it was fun, a great way to grow the sport internationally. But the Thursday Night games stink, I'm not sure I've watched one yet. Having Jacksonville and the Jets don't help. I agree there are too many games on now, serves the owners right for being greedy.

I don't like it when my team travels overseas. They've lost all of those games and usually return in a funk and continue to lose. I'm not sure if its the trip or because they suck. Either way, don't like them playing out of country.

not a big fan of the London games as well. I don't recall ever watching one in its entirety.

Maybe so, but there are teams who suck worse, thankfully.

And we do have a Lombardi Trophy, unlike a few others.

The only reason I'm a fan of the London games is hoping the Packers play there some day (not real likely) but I would love to go! London is an awesome place to visit. I've been there several times and going for a Packer game would be cool!

here is my biggest issue with the London games. Your penalizing the HOME TEAMS fans.. especially the season ticket holders. They are loosing a home game every time they HOST a London game.. that sux.. they only get 8 games a year not counting the lousy preseason games of which they pay full price for or the rare home playoff game.. (not so rare for some teams, Patriots as an example).

Packers won't give up a home game, and because of their fan base, teams don't want to give up a Packers game in their stadium. Packers have lobbied several teams but no takers. They want to play in London. Packers have a large, world wide fan base.

To be honest, I don't know why Goodell would even bring up this kind of thing. I know it's about money, but it's greed at the same time.

Have you noticed the players' salaries lately? Unbelievable. MLB is the same. Guess owners want to make their profits as well.....it all adds up to the NFL trying to find ways to make more money. Not sure it's good for the game.
