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

It'd give me another excuse to go to London, so hell, why not?

Most are probably expats.

 

No quite the opposite. Having lived in the UK I can tell you there are tons of casual fans. The NFL is seen as a novelty to some but they do enjoy it.

 

When i was in school there like 20 of the students stayed up until 4:00 am or whatever to watch the Superbowl.

Don't care where they play.  I just want them to win.

 

They make enough to play wherever they're asked.

Most was probably pushing it but there are a ton in the UK. I spent a good chunk of the Summer in London and they do know more about the NFL than we do about "Soccer" and Cricket. If you can follow and understand Cricket you can understand the NFL.

 

They keep trying to force it on the UK but after spending several months in Mexico I was surprised how much they follow the sport. Every newspaper has an NFL section with at about 2 pages of coverage. Put a team in Mexico City and it would thrive and it wouldn't even be in a time zone we don't have. I found Mexico City to be incredible.

Haven't read the whole thread, but London is my favorite city in the world.  I love going there.

I've heard it is a great city and not really that dangerous. Mexico City makes much more sense than London. Put it in a divison with Southwest teams and the exposure you get on both sides would be huge.

 

Speaking of cricket, that is a great game (not the 7 day stuff) and i am surprised there has been an effort to get it televised more over here.

I like it too but the weather wears on me.

The NFL is making a big mistake if they intend to sell out for world wide domination. They will alienate their meat and potatoes if they send American players and American dollars to another country.

 

I would rather seen the NFL in Mexico rather than England.

They need to be worried about preserving the game in the face of health concerns. Parents are holding their children out of football at the youth ranks and they think they can spread it to another country? They need to worry about preserving what they have.

I've never been to England. This would be my excuse to finally go. I'd be ecstatic

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
