Super Bowl in London??

Quote:
Goodell says NFL to look into playing Super Bowl in London

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A future Super Bowl champion may someday be crowned overseas in a game witnessed predominantly by a foreign audience, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said.

"There's a great deal of interest in holding a Super Bowl in London," Goodell told reporters Monday. "So we'll be looking at that."

The commissioner said London's new Wembley Stadium would make a great candidate for pro football's biggest matchup, given the enthusiasm overseas for the game.

The NFL has been expanding its overseas presence for years by televising games around the world. It's held preseason games in numerous countries in Europe, Asia, Mexico and Canada, and in 2005, the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers played the first regular-season match outside the United States.

The game at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City drew the league's largest crowd to date, 103,467.

On Oct. 28, Wembley will host the first regular-season NFL game outside North America. It took just 90 minutes to sell the first 40,000 tickets for the game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants. Goodell said event organizers have sold 95,000 tickets in all.

Goodell spoke about the possibility of a British Super Bowl after a luncheon Monday in Scottsdale sponsored by the host committee for the 2008 Super Bowl in Arizona.
This is bullshit. this is the NFL not the IFL. I'm callin for a boycot if its played in London.

What do you think?

What a lying sack of shit. I have yet to meet a single football fan who would have an iota of interest of seeing the game being played in London. This is about fucking money and if they EVER play the super bowl out of the us, I'm gone.

speak for yourself stoneric, there are plenty of soccer fans in america. it would be pretty cool if we hosted it in cities along the east coast. World Cup in america = tourism and maybe better opinions about us from people who hate us but have never been

It's stupid that a company that is 100% domestic is sending it's biggest product far enough away that only the most die hard fans will be able to go...

I think it just goes to show that Americans just like getting together at sporting events to get tanked and act like cave men.

And the game in London last year sold 40,000 tickets in 90 minutes. So what. We'd flock to any sporting event if it was the trendy thing to do. That doesn't mean we've embraced the sport. Check out the MLS, you be one of the few.
