    As a business decision at least the stands would always be full (with ex-soccer hooligan, vuvuzela tooting) London Dolphin fans.

    Blimey...
    I think a team in London would work if you could bring the Concorde plane out of mothballs. I think it was able to fly from London to Miami or New York in about three hours, instead of the usual seven hours to cross the Atlantic. I am sure the NFL could pony up the money to get one into running condition. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a team there within the next 5-10 years. Goodell wants this to happen.

    I think the NFL has some sort of agenda about giving us early bye weeks. When was the last time we had a bye week in the second half of the season?

    Yea it will be either Miami or Buffalo vs the Lions on thanksgiving. Although Miami seems like they are on thanksgiving pretty often. (Vs Dallas just a few years ago) and the Bills actually could be kinda exciting next year dare I say? Maybe they throw them a bone and put them on thanksgiving nationally vs the Lions.


    I'd prefer just to sit back and watch thanksgiving games instead of scheduling most of my day around when the Fins are playing haha

    Between the Fins and the Bills, I would guess the Fins as it would generate better tv ratings due to the geography. I think the Fins still have a good national interest as well that seems to have picked up this year based on my observations. It seems lately I go out around the Dallas area wearing something Fins and seem to always run into someone who is a fan.

    Well you know what they say about teams traveling from the west coast to the east. Let's hope it stays true in this situation.

    It's not if.... But when. There's a whole lotta money to be gained and it will make one of the most powerful and popular leagues that much more powerful.

    How long have they wanted to put a franchise back in LA?

    Cleveland got a franchise back quickly. ROFL!?
