I personally hate games outside the USA because American football is not a world wide sport. I just cannot believe that the NFL thinks that the international games, especially London, are a good idea. They have started playing games in Mexico City this year and Raiders and Texans will be playing there at least next Monday night, not sure though. But now the NFL wants games to be played in Germany next year and China by 2018 and even worse, London might have an NFL team. If this happens, the entire league will be a mess. Who would ever want to play for a London NFL team!?! This is idiotic that the NFL believes it is s a good idea. This is a disgrace. If they want to play games outside the USA, do it during preseason otherwise either do it Canada or don't do it at all. Plus the NFL will never expand outside the United States anyways. Any thought on this?

I'm discussing about other games outside the USA, besides London. And I don't understand why would the NFL send teams also to Mexico City, Germany, Australia, China, Poland, or wheter outside the USA because as I said, American football is not a worldwide sport which I strongly dislike that idea. What ticks me off about the NFL London games the most is the 9:00 AM start time. Who in the world would want to watch games that early!?! Just silly. Besides, games in German, China, Mexico City, or anywhere overseas, besides London, is just ridiculous because it should be limited to preseason only. All of these ideas that the NFL came up with is totally nonsense. No Cowboy fans, Lions fans, Packer fans, or whoever would want to travel to those games and it would be an absolute disaster if London gets a team. With that being said, no one would want to play for a London franchise.

And one last thing, the only reason why the NBA has played games overseas because they have a lot of international basketball players and the NFL has very few players that come from overseas. For example, Brad Wing, punter for the New York Giants, was originally from Australia and I know there are a some punters that are from Australia because of their experience in Australian Rules Football.

You might be surprised at the number of fans who would travel to a game if the Cowboys or Packers played a game in London.

Having a franchise is one thing, don't think so, but a game, I would love to go, would be great!

But who would ever want to play in or travel to Germany or in China? It doesn't make any sense to me.

Local rumor is the great Brett Favre would venture there, at night, to hunt, in January, shirtless, while downing MGD's. Only the great Favre would dare.
