    Chargers Vs. Saints in London

    Seriously, what is the point? Is the NFL trying to attract European people to America's greatest sport. I say let them keep soccer (Football over their) and we just let football remain football in good ol' America.

    And yah, i know the Giants played the Dolphins or whomever it was in Europe too.

    What's wrong with sharing sports with other countries?

    Well, the NHL played its first two (I think it was 2 at least) games of this season in London, it was the Kings vs. the Ducks. Though hockey is much more popular in Europe then football, as far as I know. Just the professional leagues trying to spread their popularity.

    The CFL is real football, none of that extra down and short field nonsense.
    Heck AFAIK we invented North American football.

    :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The Red Sox and A's open the regular season with two games in Tokyo (Mar. 25-26), while other teams are still in spring training, then return and play more exhibition games before the rest of the teams open the season on April 1.

    If I were a fan of either team I'd be upset, but since the Red Sox have to play the Jays in early April, I'm happy.

    It's all an attempt to increase broadcast and merchandising revenues overseas, which is fine.

    I don't see the problem with this. It's one game and it's being played overseas. Who cares? Hopefully it brings in some fans. If not, it's not like a ton was risked to make it happen.

    And for the record, I'm a Giants fan, so my opinion holds even if my team is the one going overseas.

    This could be the only chance the Saints have of ever winning the Super Bowl. Every team that has won a regular season game played in England this century has won the Super Bowl that year.

    It appears Calcipher has beaten me to the punch.




    Anyway, as someone who listens to more Canadian Sports talk radio than is good for him, I have really mixed feelings on spreading the sport issues.

    The NFL is a business. Europe is a huge market. Money-wanting people go where there's money to be found.

    That's all there is to it. If this sort of thing angers you for some reason you'd better give up on NFL games entirely and watch amateur sports.

    I don't think the chargers are going to make any fans, if you want fans send a good team.
