So, Packers fans what do you think about the notion that the Green Bay Packers might take on the Jacksonville Jaguars when the Jags are scheduled to host s home game across the pond ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported this afternoon that the Packers could be a prime target by the NFL to play overseas and


For our Limey Bro.

They may play overseas but I don't see GB giving up a home game. They have the 2nd or 3rd largest stadium. It is modernized with the extra rev that the luxury seats bring.

They will not give it up. Let Jaxville use a home game over there.

Jacksonville has agreed to play in London(as the Home team) for 4 years(beginning in 2013) because they can make more money over there then they can at home.

If The Packers go in 1016 they will be the visitors.

No worries of giving up a game at Lambeau.

As for the 2016 game maybe not but to say the Packers will never give up a home game is premature. There are some things the teams can't control. If the league says its your turn and you have to give up a home game you give up a home game.

yes I know. Just saying I can't see the the team or league wanting them to give up a home game. Jax makes sense.

AND- there is a chance for our Euro friends to catch a game.

Personally I want to keep it at 16 games, but when the NFL was talking about 18 games season I was wondering if they might split the difference and play 17 games. 8 home, 8 away and 1 at non-NFL stadium.

And maybe have it where the decide who picks which teams get to decide where to play. Such as maybe AFC odd years, NFC even years or something like that. Or Packers and Lions one year, and Vikings and Bears another...


Which would of allowed the Packers to play in Milwaukee once every two years.

Bills in Toronto

Some teams in London every year... etc...

I'm not so sure about that. If they stick with the 3 games per year I'm betting that every team will have to give up a home game at some point.

I always thought it would throw the players off. I know they get the bye week when they come back but I wonder what their record is for the following couple of weeks.

Didn't realize this was an old thread

If they want to continue this stupid 3 games a year in London crap then I suggest they look for 3 volunteers to give up their home games. If they don't get three volunteers they need to select the home teams on a rotational basis with no team getting any preferential treatment. Starting with the AFC South, East, West, North going alphabetically then moving on to the NFC South, East, West and North in that order.
