NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he hasn’t ruled out a Super Bowl taking place overseas, perhaps in London.

“I want to grow the game,” Goodell said via New York Post reporter Bart Hubbuch.

Obviously, some fans like the idea of playing games in England, but I don't know a single one who does.

He's crazy. The NFL is an American game. Play an exhibition over there, or even a regular season game if you have to, but taking the biggest game of the year out of America is absolutely nuts. Can you imagine how fans of say a Cleveland, or Detroit who have never been to a Superbowl would feel if they finally make it and have to shell out the bucks to go overseas to go to the game? That's one of the most insane ideas I have ever heard of.
You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill.

The NFL landscape has definitely changed. For the worse.

I hear the same thing from UFEA (Union of European Football Associations) about having the champions league final in NYC, revenue is more important than common sense and fan loyalty to these chairmen of sports.

Probably be the first time I'd refuse to watch the NFL.
