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.

 

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 live in Europe, I don´t like the London games. It is just not the same as in the US. It is kind of artificial, not authentic. Sorry fellow european folks, just my opinion. NFL, please stay in North America.

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

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.

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.

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).
