At this very point, I could care less where.. North Pole, but I want to see this team play a complete game.. period.

Mental mistakes gone and fundamentals sound.. don't beat yourself.

I would be okay with an away game in London

My cousin Alan and his wife Maggie form England made it a point, on their visit to Upper Michigan, to make their 1st stop after getting off the plane in Chicago, at Lambeau Field to buy Packer paraphenalia.

Alan was a huge Packer fan until his passing and I know he would be very excited oabout the Packers playing in London.

It would be a huge disruption on the season overall.. taking the team out of a normal weekly routine and add fatigue to the season.. that would be the hesitation.

But it would be a absolute treat to share this team with the fans abroad.. for that reason.. I would like to see it.

i didn't relise there was an english packer fan here ...cool
i went to the giants / dolphins game last year and couldn't get a ticket to this years game , just my effing luck i end up going to the mudfest and miss a classic , i for one would go to the game , even though i'm a viking fan , i'd go even if it was the lions i just want a team from the nfc north to come over , next years game looks good , but i dread to think what the english media is going to make of bellichick and grudgen hardly the two most media friendly guys in the league

hey i'd love to see the Packers over here in the UK for a regular season game. Totally understand the reluctance to play a home game in London but if it does happen we'll do our best to make it a Lambeau mk 2. Better an away game tho :)

I think the NFl needs better marketting and a regular *good* terrestrial slot this side of the pond...UK peeps know i mean coverage not just on sky (sundays) or 5 - late match mondays. The early matches on Sunday would be great viewing for the beeb. Even a decent magazine program would be appreciated.

if you live in the U.K and have skysports , i'd say we get much better coverage than they do in the US , i'd say total aceess is about the best magazine program there is and we get that , in fact it starts in half an hour o.k its one day later but we still get it , where a large number of households in the US don't , we also get all the NFL Network games , plus a chice of games on sundays , i also believe that isn't the case overthere, i honestly don't see what there is to complain about , its a shame that NASN pulled out from the NFL coverage because we used to get alot of the ESPN coverage on there too like NFL countdown

Fine if you've got Sky, i don't and many others don't. I can get Sky Sports for a hefty fee on my Cable.If you want to expand the fan base in the UK it needs to go out on Terrestrial TV, like it did back in the day on Channel 4

It's never on here either, I've seen one game in my entire life on regular cable TV... the Seahawks - Steelers superbowl.

It's kind of a vicious circle atm. The game isn't very well known and/or popular so it doesn't get alot of time on time. No one finds out about it and the game doesn't get more popular.

Internet seems to be changing that though, never knew there where this much other non-American people that liked the sport.
