NFL eyes second overseas game

ESPN While Goodell reiterated there are no plans to move the Super Bowl to London, he said a second regular-season game is drawing support from league owners. "I think the teams have had a great experience that have gone over," Goodell said. "We've been able to build on that and I think teams recognize it's an honor and a privilege to go over and play there. And it can be done without impacting the team negatively." However, some players have been critical of the overseas game because of the extensive travel involved in the middle of the season. One team also loses a home game in the arrangement, a potential competitive disadvantage. "The negative is taking the home game away from the fans," Goodell said. "It's another reason why potentially restructuring the season and changing two preseason into regular-season can be something that we find is beneficial to the fans." Goodell is a madman. Two regular season games in England? An 18 game season? Good luck convincing the players to go along with that. After the Saints won there last season, I seem to remember Payton complaining about a lot of things. Yeah, it's great to play games there, but it's the travel and one team losing a home game that sucks.
