Meh, I'm all for growing the game but I can see why the Raiders would be upset. A big game here that could be for the top spot in the AFC next year that the Raiders could have played wherever and yet they have to play in Mexico City.

Yes this is a road game for both teams any way you look at it. It's not a home game for the Raiders just cause we have more fans there.


Agreed. A very similar thing happened with the Bills in Toronto.

Although I'm not a Bills fan, I attended these games. The crowd was mostly Bills fans wearing Bills' colors. But the Bills managed to play bad in all those games. When coaches and players were interviewed, they all said the same thing. It felt like a road game. The fans don't make up for the unfamiliar field, unfamiliar bed, and travel.
