    I don't care if they play preseason games there, but regular season games should be played in the US.

    Or maybe even make 50 different teams and you can draft from all over the world like they do in other Pro.Sports
    They will never combine NFLE with the NFL. The NFLE was bought by the league as a way to spread the popularity of the sport overseas and get NFL players a chance to get some more experience before their training camps start.

    I have no problem with the NFL allowing other markets to experience a real game , the preseason games are a joke anyway. They are only slightly better than NFLE. My surprise is that the game is not in Germany as that is where almost all of NFLE is based and where American football is the most popular

    I just hate the idea of a game that means something being played outside of our country. Not only does the home team get screwed...think of the disadvantage to the players having to do all that traveling. It sucks, they should keep the games here in our country!

    The fans of the "home team" and the "home team" are getting the real short end of the stick here.
