They do? I didn't realize that. Do they have water slide in Beijing? I knows when 2008 Olympics came to Beijing. They do have indoor swimming pool, diving, and etc. Don't you remember this?

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.
You have to be joking, I am English and I have NEVER even met anybody that watches the game. I am sure it is a great sport but (right now) it just doesn't have the 'foothold' here it seems to want to claim it has. Perhaps there is 1 or 2 per cent of the English population that are 'fans', that would still be a million or so people but to have a team here is probably the most stupid sports decision I have ever known! I really feel for the American fans who really do seem to have a passion for this sport only to see their teams taken away from them to play games god knows where. If they ever made Chelsea FC play regular season games overseas they wouldn't get my support anymore. Perhaps you guys (American fans) should boycott the games until they stop with this ridiculous idea? After all its you fans that are the ones lining the pockets of the men in charge, they will soon change their tune once they realise who it is that really makes the sport and who the real important people are here (US fans).

NFL isn't giving up, apparently there will be 4 games in 2017 instead of 3, and the teams will be announced Tuesday.

2017 London games: NFL announces which teams will be playing - NFL.com

This isn't going away, NFL has announced the teams that will be playing the 4 games. No Packers, I keep hoping but with their popularity for those away games, not really likely.
