ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (27 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (27 March 2015 - 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.

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!
