http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/9871394/nfl-says-jacksonville-jaguars-dallas-cowboys-atlanta-falcons-detroit-lions-oakland-raiders-miami-dolphins-set-london-2014

Personally, here's how I think the London games should be scheduled. Each week that there is a London game, the network that has it should have the doubleheader, and it would be the only game on either network in the early slot, with all remaining afternoon games at 4 for both networks.

The reason I say that is because I live in the Cleveland area and I have never got the London games on TV. Exacerbating the situation is that Sunday Ticket is exclusive to Direct TV and my parents aren't willing to get Direct TV. I was hoping the Browns would play Jacksonville in London next year because we were scheduled to play them on the road.

I would be so pissed if I was a fan of one of those home teams, especially as a season ticket holder.

Why should a London game be special for Americans? It is meant for the international fan

Almost all the Jaguars fans I know that are season ticket holders love it. They understand why we're doing it and know that it's ultimately going to benefit the team and city. It's only the shortsighted people and those who think Shad is an evil monster that's going to steal their team that don't like it.

Yup, I'm happy the Ravens aren't playing overseas, too.

Why would anyone not want a road game turned into a neutral? That's pretty significant.

As long as season ticket holders aren't getting charged their usual price I really see no problem at all. I actually like it to be honest. Jet lag might be an issue though and not to mention time differences for West Coast teams.

I don't think anyone's viewed it that. Most people are viewing it as a home game turned into a neutral game, which is significant in the other way.

Either way, Baltimore isn't playing there. I is happy camper.

Exactly. This is great for Dallas.

Well the Cowboys are playing, so its basically going to be a home game for them either way.

what the nfl should do is just send a bunch of random people to london dressed in NFL teams unis. have them play.

london can pretend they are getting a real game and the nfl teams dont actually have to go over seas and play a game.

Ignorant or unfunny - which one would you rather be?

no, just think the whole thing is a money grab that gets annoying. you have two teams that play after a huge flight and time change makes the whole game pointless. heck the dressing up random people and putting them in the nfl logo fills the stands then there ya go nfl you did it you made the people in the UK as mindless as most nfl fans now. the nfl can poop on a plate and most people either complain and ask for seconds or eat all of it and say its better then nothing.

the whole london game is a joke. either they are stupid and think it can work or they are just going around faking the team in london to get more support.
