OK. Well good luck getting players who actually want to be on a London team and put up with that crap rather than play there as a last-resort alternative to the AFL or CFL.

The lowest an NFL rookie can be paid is $450K per year ($480K in 2018).

CFL: $50K Rookie, Average salary $80K.
AFL: League minimum $31K, $40-50K Average salary.

Not really a tough decision. There is already players playing in Europe for not much less than the AFL salaries but with a car to drive and housing taken care of.

If they are going to play international games they need to bring the best officials that wont be affected by either the altitude or the bias of the crowds or laser pointers in their faces....

While I hate them, but I think the reason why the NFL is doing this is for money. If NFL gets a London franchise, since I've said this before and I'll say it again, it will be disastrous. Who would ever want to play for team in London!?! American football is not a worldwide sport!

I know Calico hates the London games. Who else does, besides me?

The NFL is considering shifting the London Games back to 1:00 PM ET.

NFL reportedly moving London games back to 1 p.m., which is quite boring

Plus, those of you who hate London Games, bad news. The NFL is planning four games in London next season.

To be honest, if they really want to play international games, they should stop the 9:00 AM ET start time. I don't have time to watch those games. But to be honest, does anybody really care about games being played outside the United States anyways? Because it doesn't make any sense. There's no way that the league will expand teams outside the US.

I wonder what Bluescreen thinks of the London Games because it seems like it won't go away. Flying a plane to London takes hours but in Toronto, the Bills would only take nearly 2 hours from Ralph Wilson to Toronto by car or bus and their diehard fans didn't have an issue with it.

2 hours? You could just about swim from Buffalo to Toronto in 2 hours. I doubt a plane would ever even get to cruising altitude.
