    NFL regular season game in UK for next 3 years

    [size=14pt]Saints come marching into Wembley[/size]

    The National Football League will stage competitive games in the United Kingdom in each of the next three years, beginning with the New Orleans Saints hosting the San Diego Chargers at London’s Wembley Stadium on October 26.

    Well there's something that we didn't see coming. Not only back for this year again but for the following two years as well. That will be a total of four years at the end, so it appears that the NFL is basing it's overseas experiment just on UK crowds alone.
    As many know I'm not a fan of this idea but to just do it in the same country doesn't follow the ideal of spreading the game overseas IMO.

    If I was living overseas I would love this concept.


    Kindof glad you guys get to see some games in a way as long as it doesn't impact the Vikes.
    ;D

    Well if you can get a ticket then fine. However I take the broader view that if it shouldn't impact the Vikes then it shouldn't impact anyone.
    The thing is as fans outside the US then we have put up with the problems that brings - for example not expecting to have regular season games brought to us. Either we make do with pre-season games or maybe the Pro-Bowl but I don't expect that we should have regular season games outside the US. If we really are keen to watch a game in person then it should be up to us to get off our duffs and make the effort to travel instead of expecting the opposite.

    my guess is only marginally better than last year - just pray it doesn't rain again prior to game time
