NFL looking at a 2nd reg season game in UK

Ugh. :-t

$ for the sake of $. One per year is an interesting novelty. Two reg season games starts this trend down a slippery slope, with more and more teams going for the $ grab.

I don't like it.

There is a right and wrong way to go about this...

and in my opinion this is the wrong way. Just a quick note, I didn't read the article. But basically this seems to me like the NFL saying they have us US fans by the balls. More foreign games = less home games for some team and with only 8 a year as is thats not okay.

I think that if the season expands we might see every team play in this type of game (split between say U.K., Canada, and Mexico). The way it works now is not so good but I think it can be a good thing when they fix the competitive balance issues.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Money is the only reason that this is even being discussed. And because the NFL already has more money than it can handle, I hate to say it, but the word GREED comes to mind.
