NFL could play eight games with different teams in London, wonít expand

So whatís the long-term goal for the NFL in London? Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday that he wants to put a team in both London and Los Angeles.

If that happens, it wonít entail expansion of the league. The NFL, weíre told, has no plan to grow beyond 32 teams.

And that would be a wise move. Based on the reality that there arenít enough healthy and competent quarterbacks to go around for 32 teams, it would be a mistake to add one or two more franchises.

Thus, if/when teams move to London and/or Los Angeles, the league will be relocating existing teams.

As to London, itís also possible that no one will move. Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported during Football Night in America that the league could play a full slate of eight games in England, with different teams playing in each game. Every team would play in London at least once every three years.

We floated the possibility of the cereal variety pack approach earlier this month, without actually knowing that it could be a possibility. According to King, it is.

I don't really have that much of a problem with them expanding their brand over there if the demand is in place, but damn I would hate for them to relocate a team to London.

Relocating a team over here makes sense, and nor does playing eight games a season at Wembley. This proposal just smacks of the league getting too greedy and overestimating the success of the Wembley games.

At the moment with two to three a season played at Wembley, it's more than ideal for fans over here. Make that number eight and I highly doubt that as many neutral fans (ie those of other teams not playing at Wembley) will turn up throughout the season as they would have far more choice of which games to watch and the potential to be satisfied watching their own team play.

Cost is an issue too as the tickets aren't cheap. I've been to four of the games (Dolphins-Giants, Bucs-Patriots, Chargers-Saints and Broncos-49ers) and I think the average I must have paid for a ticket was in the region of £70, maybe even higher. If the NFL could sell out Wembley eight times with prices that dear - to sell it out for eight games, it would mean selling over 640,000 tickets - I'd be extremely surprised.

Additionally a number of the fans go as a once a season thing, with a large number travelling over from Europe. While that can be done extremely cheaply, the time it takes to fly and get through UK customs would be off putting, especially as you'd be looking at doing it once a fortnight!

Nice to see a perspective like that from someone from over there. If the money is there the NFL will do whatever to make it possible, but I don't see the BPL looking to relocate a squad to anywhere in the USA much less clamoring to hold some regular season matches here in the states.

There was the plan the other year to introduce a 39th Premier League game, with that round of fixtures played overseas. That died a quick death though! With the Premier League it's the TV money they rake in from overseas markets that bankrolls the league, whereas for the NFL it's the domestic market that does that. Any plans for eight games in the UK would also mean more competition against the Premier League, which will be a much greater issue than it is now.

If the NFL really wants more games in Europe (really 4 or 5 should be the maximum), it should play games in cities like Berlin, Barcelona (two cities where they used to have NFL Europe teams) or Paris as well as London. Also why not have more games in Mexico City? I remember the Cardinals-49ers game there in 2005 had a crowd of over 100,000!
