Mexico isn't exactly the best location to do legal business or family-oriented stuff.

Hawaii makes sense since we have the stadium there already though I don't know how many people that stadium fits.

If there's an American territory like Puerto Rico I wouldn't mind that. That's not very far.

I wonder how football would do in Japan. European-wise, I could see the Scandanavians or Germanic countries being more interested than say France, Spain, or Italy. If Israel wasn't dangerous I know a lot of people there would be interested. There are a lot of American transplants there.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/08/raiders-will-need-to-amend-lease-in-order-to-host-london-game/

maybe not.

The Raiders can't legally host a game in London at the moment. Unless they can come up with a settlement.

Saw the Vikings-Steelers game just there, but this one will be a bit different.

Generally not a big fan of all these games over here, but I'll be seeing the Raiders so I really don't care this time.


That game actually looked like the first really successful game, though. It seemed pretty loud in there.

Seems stupid now but down the line, these may be brilliant moves

Personal opinion, remember when the international series was first mooted, there was a proposal to formalise it a bit, where they would play 2 games a year overseas, one in London/UK, and then the second game would rotate between Canada, Mexico, Germany and perhaps even Asia/Australia, and that each team would lose exactly one home and one away game every 16 years.


I'd do that. No franchises, no superbowls(Although I think a Wembley superbowl is more feasible than a franchise), but compel every team to lost one homegame every 16th year on rotation.

ugh, I hope they all play so horribly that the NFL never considers London or any other venue outside the US ever again.

Actually, this isn't that bad. I don't like all the international expansion and what have you, but this idea seems fair.

I love it if we get to play one of them. I'd be for playing in Beirut if it turned a road game into a neutral.

Is RG really the one who controls these decisions?

Either way I'm not a fan of this, but if they're going to do it then at least try and make it a team with a horrible home crowd attendance.

They've been playing bigger sporting events than the NFL in Mexico for decades.

I don't see how you can do a superbowl in London. It'd have to start 6pm eastern time.
