I understand games in Mexico, at least it's on the same freaking continent. I don't understand why the NFL keeps trying to get Europeans interested in a game that absolutely bores and baffles them.

Toronto and Mexico City make sense at least that they are close enough to actual NFL markets to have some fanbase. But London?

London doesn't make any sense. Toronto is fine with me because it's only two hours away from Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills had no problem with it because the fans would only make a short trip.

We will all probably be dead when the NFL stops playing games outside the USA.

Do I enjoy the games in London? Not really but they are not going anyway anytime soon.

Yeah it seems that the NFL London games won't go away. How pathetic.

My vote on this is the same as my vote for Daylight Savings Time.

Get ride of it.

Not because either is an actual problem, but just because if they were gone it would least bring the incessant whining about them to a blessed end!

Since when isn't football a worldwide sport?

I am from Australia and have played football in Europe as well as down under. I played on scholarship for 4 years in college in the States and a year after that. There are leagues where players get paid in Europe and Asia.

Many punters are Australian and international players now play in the NFL. At least 25% of middle aged Australia men watch the game and I imagine it is more in the UK and places like Germany. The game is growing and the NFL has every right to try and extend it's reach.

I'll bet more Americans have visited Germany than have visited Wisconsin.

Germany and China are both very popular destinations for vacationing Americans.

China has a waterslide park that's way better than the Dells
