Default Moving Super Bowl to London?

WTF?!! This has to be one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard. If this happens I think the backlash from American fans will be enormous. the NFL is an American league representing an American sport, if they move the biggest game of the year to Europe I will be furious.

Yea, what a horrible Idea. I don't think NFL is that popular in London. I could be wrong though, was the stadium packed in the game that was in London last year? Even if it was it would be weird with the time zone changes. They'd have to play at midnight or something for those on the West coast of America to watch it in primetime.

Moving the Superbowl to London is stupid. I already hate it not being played on homefield for the team who has the better record. Having the Superbowl being played in warm weather cities isn't what football is even about. It's about being played in hard conditions. Playing the Superbowl where it's been for a while takes away from what football is all about in the first place.

Exactly. I think the team that has the best record deserves to have home field advantage throughout, and that's including the Super Bowl. F*ck the nice weather.

The dollar is so strong over there, it would probably save the NFL millions.

will never happen


just a way to create buzz for the London regular season game and for the league to act like they really care about fans over there. justifies the huge ticket prices.

The Superbowl is the biggest sporting event in America. It's an American sport and moving it away from here would be terrible. But as someone mentioned above, it could save the NFL some money.

Lambeau Field needs a super bowl. Those celebs that would attend would be so uncomfortable.

I wouldn't have any pity for them, but it would be hard for the fan events that lead up to the super bowl to take place in a cold weather city.

London has got the Olympics to worry about and how to at least try and equal Beijing's opening ceremony...
Still, I wouldn't mind though, might grab myself a ticket and finally properly see an NFL game
