    I don't have a problem with pre-season games being played in other countries. But regular season games is a stupid idea. The NFL is Americas game. Most of the world could give two shits about American football.

    The owners are thinking about the dollar signs. They just see that there could be more money to be made by promoting the NFL to other countries. But these NFL owners are already rich enough so its a bad idea. But greed is one of the 7 deadly sins.

    In college, if the two teams play at a nuetral site, it counts as an away game for both teams. I am sure the NFL would do this the same way.

    Next season the Seahawks play a preseason game in China! I am sure the coaches are thrilled to be losing at least two entire days to travel in the preaseason...

    The Rooneys had a big part in this, they love the fact of NFL games taking place in different parts of the world because of the exposure it gives. They almost single handedly set up the Steelers trip to Ireland several years back.

    that's exactly why i'm against it, keep this crap in the preseason where it belongs......because a home game could end up feeling like a road game if the crowd prefers to cheer for the other team.....it just ain't fair
