    will be playied in England or Germany

    SF-SEA-MIA-BUF-KC-NO

    one of these 6 teams should be the home team

    could be the Pats be one candidate to be the 'road' team ? i hope so...

    New England @ Miami in Europe ?

    Not in 2007, I'm afraid; the Pats (and Seahags) are going to China, so I highly doubt the league will send either of them to Europe as well.

    Screw that crap, the time zone change is just too difficult. The NFL is pissing me off more and more. I'm sure both teams will have their bye the following week but still . . .

    I think NEM meant the Patriots likely wouldn't be one of the teams as they have the China game too - not that there wouldn't be a game.

    Here's my idea - play all the games in the United States.

    I agree. why would owners give up that much gate and revenue?

    i think it will be a failed experiment. the nfl has gun issues now, imagine them being in a foreign country and the implications with liability.

    c'mon my friends

    1 (one) game every year outside US is not a disaster...

    we are talking about 1 single game

    give us the opportunity to see it too once a year

    ItalianPatthePatriot, I feel for you. As much as I'm not a fan of the NFL's quest to host regular season games overseas, the saving grace would be that great fans like you can go to a game in your backyard (so to speak).

    BTW, I never asked, where in Italy are you from?

    i would love it (a 'road' game for the Pats) but i doubt it as NE will go with SEA to play in China in 2007

    16 january we will know...

    Venice (Venezia) is of course a 'right' decision but you should try to go minimum to Florenze (Firenze) and Rome too...

    this is the hottest winter we ever had here for yr info...

    Thanks for the info.

    Coincidentally enough we almost chose Milan, but decided on Venice. I'll fill you in on our trip when we return.

    One game or even TWO out of the country in a year is NOT bad at all...I don't think it is a big deal. NO Patriot game in Europe this year..FIRST game in China..MUCH MORE important!!!
    I doubt it will be a division game...maybe even interconference...

    Disable Jersey

    We had a great time in Fierenze and Venezia as well. Like NEM said, wander around in Venezia; it's an island so don't worry about geting lost. The museums in Fierenze were awesome. You can have your hotel buy tix in advance and you walk right in avoiding hours of lines.

    Get Rick Steve's "Italy 2007" tourbook and phrase book, then you'll learn stuff like how to order in Italiano, "Mangio solo insetti." You waiter will love it!
