How do you feel about the Panthers playing in merry old England?

Same as I feel about any other team playing in London.

 

Hate it and think it's a waste of time.

 

If you want to do that stuff, do it in the preseason.

I do think it's kind of funny that London keeps getting some of the worst games of the week.

Mexico City has the highest population than any other city in the western hemisphere and people there seem to like the NFL a lot.  They should get a team before any other country.

People shouldn't underestimate the european nfl fans. They are a lot of passionate fans there as well as casual fans just like america. Obviously the US has more passionate fans but that doesn't mean european fans are less passionate if they fall in love with a team or the game itself. nfl.uk has a dedicated forum for european fans and it is very active. I welcome them all especially euro panther fans.

Hope it happens. It would take some serious scheduling but make it a Tuesday night game just before the two playing teams have their byes. They get extra time to accommodate the flying.

They are professionals. Many business pros fly around the world weekly and land/negotiate mega deals for much less money than these guys make.

While we are at it, make the season 18 games long with 2 preseason games. More revenue and PSL owners get to see an extra game each year.

"Sending money oversees" is a bit shortsighted. Nfl and it's teams are American owned--drawing more world money into American companies is only a good thing.

I feel like when the league does this they should have some deal with American Airlines for cheap airfare for the "home team" fans. Like a 250 dollar Charlotte-London RT Special thats valid for travel on Friday and Monday.

I would go. I've got a ton of family over there that I haven't seen in a long time, so it'd be a good excuse.

If we go there, my wife and I will go there. I love London, it's an easy country to get there and back from, it would be fantastic to represent my team there and meet all the European fans there.

I'm watching Braveheart.

Prolly the best movie ever.

Fug the red coats.

Also, William Wallace would have made a great football player. He had the war paint thing down.

The whole thing is beyond stupid.  Although it is not as stupid as the idea of a team in London.

I didn't read any of the op, nor care to follow the many pages...  but there isn't one good reason to send a team overseas, especially on a permanent basis...

I make it to one Panthers game a year (dammit, I live in Richmond, VA) so it's not like I'm missing attending a game by sending the Panthers to England, but I still don't like the idea of it.  Not a bit.  Goodell should die for pushing this crap.  If the NFL is so hell-bent on expanding the NFL fan base, it needs to begin with a league BASED in Europe, not pushing teams around the globe…a global league is impossibly complex and unworkable unless we also implement the as-yet-uninvented teleportation device to alleviate transportation nightmares.  And as I recall, there WAS an NFL Europe aka World League of American Football, and it went belly-up. So no, it's a bad idea, as is European football (and dentition).
