Roger Goodell seems to be pushing hard to get more and more games overseas. Why?

The home team loses a home game, therefore 1/10 of their revenue they'd have otherwise earned. Does the "home" team get the proceeds earned from playing overseas?

What if a player doesn't have a passport?

The teams earn money from the gate overseas as well as home. The advantage to a team like J-ville is they earn more money in London than they do in FL. I doubt GB or Dallas would have the same benefit.

I think I read that the NFL corp picks up the travel expenses for both teams. I am not sure about lodging and meals. Makes sense that they would.

As for Passports. The teams know about the game long enough in advance that they can make sure players have their passports. That said it would not shock me if the almighty NFL had a way to expedite the process. A player picked up a couple of weeks before the game may have to stay home if he doesn't have one.

What about a player on probation? I'd assume the player would be given permission, much like they are able to 'work' outside their county.


It just does't make sense to me. If you can't fill your domestic seats with 10 games a season, exporting one is just going to hurt the domestic fan base. And for what?

Going to London to see the Queen was never my idea. I am only surmising what Lord Goodell is thinking. Personally I think NFL has about maxed out over there. (Apologies to the fans across the pond that follow the real game.)

It wouldn't surprise me if we see a Super Bowl played in London in the not too distant future.

That would surprise the hell out of me. That would be tantamount to moving the Macy's 4th of July fireworks spectacular to London.
