That's really just what sucks for teams.

Are we really moving towards a UK franchise?

Stinks to lose a home game, but at least neither team has an advantage. Though the Steelers have a huge fan base, it will probably feel like a home game for them Laughing

No, or at least I hope not, it would never work. Think the most it'll ever be is a couple of games a year.

Steelers - Vikings is a pretty good match up, more enticing than the next two of Pats - Rams and Jags - 49ers.

They have to go all the way to London. Not exactly ideal.

I don't even think a couple of games a year will work over here. The novelty has worn off. If they want another international game in Europe, Germany should get one. Thier national league is arguably the best in Europe and is unbelievably well supported.
