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.

believe me that will never happen , sky paid a hefty fee to insure that it doesn't , they even outbid NASN which is a channel dedicated solely to american sports , not trying to be nosey but how much is skysports on cable ?, i pay 12 euros a week which is about a tenner in sterling , and its great value for money seeing as you get about 800 channels along with all the sports channels , o.k you can only watch one channel at the time , but the choice is there

The Netherlands.

And the superbowl broadcast was more of a big commercial for the Amsterdam Admirals... at 1:00 am or so.

In all honesty, there are some play-off games on German tv, but I can't stand their chatter and without commentating it gets somewhat boring.

BBC usually has the SB aswell, at least, it did last year (as you know, I guess) but had to go to school the day after. Not gonna miss it this year though :p.

Well i think the NFL recognises the need to expand the fan base using terrestrial - its given the superbowl to the BBC last year and this year, and the Wembley match was broadcast live by the bbc this year.

For me each sky sports channel cost 20 / month, thats on top of what i already pay and per individual channel. I've got friends who subscribe so i can visit them instead :)

damn them cable copamies know how to screw people so that would be 60 a month just for the 3 main sports channels , it cost less for the whole package of 800 or so channels

Np, I'm 17, it's just that going to bed at 4:00 and having to wake up at 7:00 isn't gonna work out.

I've been to just one soccer game, as the sport got boring after I played it for 5 years. I watch it on TV occasionally, but I don't wanna spent my money on something that could get me at time at half-time.

That's why I wanna get the Packers here. The Admirals where ok, I guess. They had Ruvell Martin, Kurt Warner etc. But it's like getting a practice squad to play for you, while Brett Favre is slinging it around in GB.

Lets hope this sport gets bigger here, so we can get some quality players from this side of the pond aswell. For as far as I know, there have been just 2 Dutch NFL Players, a little interest and media attention for the sport, and our league wouldn't be that much of a cupcake league anymore.

It really only affects season ticket holders in terms of attending the game. The group that will be outraged the most are those who sell their tickets for a profit since you'd be taking a game away from them.

Business owners and lawn-parking would lose that much income too.

As for me, I would be glad if they took away a December game. I'd save $120 in tickets AND wouldn't have to drive in the snow and sit in the cold.

IT will never be a december game , the reason being is the teams that travel over always have their bye week following , both games so far have been week 8 , i think that will carry on

If the P ackers are scheduled to go over to London for regular season game. The Packers will go . There is no discussion.

If it is A Pa cker home game lost- , the NFL will pay the Packer's for the revenue lost at Packer home game at LF. But the Green Bay area Economy takes a hit for on lost home game weekend . This amounts to around $4M lost to the economy of GB. Businesses such as Hotels, Taverns, Restaurants, gas station ,shopping centers and points of interest (attractions) are the losers. Business persons in GB will not be happy about losing revenue, because the Packers lose a home game in Green Bay, because NFL schedules the Packer s in London.

But the Green Bay Packer organization voted to play regular NFL season games in London, when NFL owners had vote on the NFL teams playing games in London.
