Is anyone besides me completely confused by the fact that the Jags continue to be picked to represent the nfl in London.

They cant even sell out games in their hometown.

I think that's sort of the point!

Whats the point?

 

A team that sells out week in week out isn't going to give up a home game.

 

A team like the Jags are more willing because they know Brits are that desperate to see an NFL game they'll watch anyone and it'll sell out, everyone's a winner.

Shad Khan volunteered the Jags after the Rams pulled out of their multi year agreement.

 

We play Detroit next year....think we could luck out and pull them or the Falcons the week after they go to London?

 

Teams that go to London have their bye the week after they play there.

Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported during Football Night in America that the league could play a full slate of eight games in England, with different teams playing in each game.  Every team would play in London at least once every three years.

I haven't heard of a single player, analyst, fan, or commentator that thinks this whole London thing is a good idea yet they push ahead with the idea.

I really don't understand why the league doesn't play a game in Mexico City. 

 

Huge population, spreads the popularity of the sport to latin america, much easier trip.
