    NFL has "discussed" the possibility, although it doesn't look like it's too serious.

    If this were to happen, it would make me sick.

    It will never happen and people should shut the fuck up about it.

    Ha! Just wait until Pro Bowl QB Sam Bradford leads the London Monarchs onto the Wembley Stadium pitch to face the Patriots in the big game!
     
  5. That's such a monumentally bad idea, I refuse to believe that Bud Selig didn't come up with it.

    They would have to get an NFL team first, because the only way a new city gets into the Super Bowl rotation is to let Goodell and his merry band of billionaires extort taxpayers for a new stadium.

    London will never get a team. Mexico City will never get a team. They like to tease it to keep them interested.

    If a non-US city ever gets a NFL team it would be Toronto.

    It would be a great idea. They could play it with an 8 p.m. kickoff in London, which would be in the middle of the night on the East Coast here, and I could skip the bad games quite nicely.

    8 p.m. in London is 3 p.m. on the East Coast. It would take the game out of prime time on the East Coast (TV won't like that) and the day-long build-up.

    It won't happen.

    Will never happen because Torontonians and Ontarians would NEVER agree to pay for a new stadium after getting hosed on Skydome/Rogers Centre.

    The idea of the NFL expanding to Toronto has been tossed around since the friggin' 70's.
