I keep hearing Godhell saying he would like a team in London and I think we have found the winner.


The Jaguars will host the San Francisco 49ers in London on Sunday and have committed to play a home game at Wembley in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.


Does it seem odd that they will give up a home game 4 years in a row?


They just added a 3rd game next year

3rd game to London

The Jaguars owner Shahid Khan does also own an English soccer club. So there's definitely potential that he and the NFL are angling for a move to London.

Though one thing I've read about the London games is that the fans are die-hards from all over Europe and they're making a once a year trip-not too expensive and something that's easy to plan for. One has to wonder if they'll be there 8 games a year.

So teams make the proceeds for the ticket prices here in london?

Thats not bad then ...

The problem about games in england is that lots of peeps come to watch em (for whatever reason) and most are not even a fan of the team. Ive never been to a game here ...

also not sure how much ticket prices are in the states but everything is |.......| that much more here.
