Yeah, Football just does not fit into an Soccer stadium with a crowd of only 60% understanding what is going on.

Is it possible that the NFL could schedule it so that the two teams competing in London are playing an away game, and still keep 8 home games in the US?  Doesnt really matter now, since they're moving to multiple games a year over there, making it harder to fix the schedule as away games.

Part of the fun is seeing the sweet football stadiums and rabid home fans on TV. Wembley is pretty generic.

 

Aye that BoA crowd is ferocious.

I'm pretty sure they have played there. 

 

From my time in Mexico, they love the NFL. Every newspaper has several pages of coverage dedicated to it.

 

As far as a Panthers London game. I've promised myself and friends that live there that we are going when it happens. I can't wait. 

 

I thought I remembered one there too.

 

The Cowboys were always popular south of the border. Give them one home game in Mexico City each year and they would probably fill up a 100,000 seat stadium easily.

They LOVE Joe Montana and the 49ers as well. If the 49ers and Cowboys played it would be bigger than the Virgin of Guadalupe Festival.

curious why it's always London myself as well...there's huge stadiums all over the damn place over there.

 

Amsterdam road trip anyway?!!!!!

Because they're testing the waters for putting a franchise there.

 

Even if other countries would support games, I don't see the NFL ever putting games there because few players are going to want to go live in non-english speaking countries.

 

London is really the only European city that works (although Amsterdam has a high percentage of English speakers as well).

The London game was so awesome! First live NFL game, and it was just incredible!

Hope to see a lot more Panther jerseys next year when we go and boo the shit out of Matty next year against the Lions

I figure they might as well move Tampa there.  Since the Glazers own Manchester United, they could solidift their Europeon holding and sell out the stadium every week.

I think an NFL franchise in London is stupid. Id see American football fans walking around wearing a "London Bridger's" jersey or whatever stupid name they'd come up with and think hes a douche right off the bat, root for an American team.
