    You want the salary cap to keep rising ? Expanding international appeal might be the easiest way to do this.

    Maybe the whole team could get arrested over the course of a season.

    Only if they use one of the few good jokes from Family Guy and call themselves the London Silly Nannies.

    This would provide many obstacles in terms of travel, etc.

    dolphins moved to the afc south, jags moved to the afc east. I could totally see this happening pretty easily.

    Who the hell has ever heard of a London Jaguar? Makes no sense. I mean, who would be a sponsor?

    There are many considerations. But, I don’t think it’s nearly as far fetched as most... I’d much rather play in London than many current NFL cities : Jax, Cleveland, Cincy, Tampa, Green Bay, just to name a few. It’s a huge metro, a world leading city that is second to none.

    As transportation improves (Concorde type planes are back in talks/on the horizon) some of the stumbling blocks become less pronounced.

    Furthermore, I don’t think the « no one would want to play there » narrative is as true as it might seem at first glance. As a Canadian, I can’t help but notice that Europeans from such highly developed societies as Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, and others are willing to move to Edmonton and Winnipeg to play in the NHL... So it’s not a stretch to think a DL from Birmingham or Austin would gladly live in beautiful London, UK. The shy players might even enjoy walking the streets incognito w/o the hassle you’d get in football crazed Dallas.

    This is NOT a big deal. Compare travel times from Boston to London, to Seattle and to San Diego. They are close enough. As has been said, JAX would be moved to the AFC East, and Miami to the South.

    I suppose they wouldn't be jaguars anymore.

    Yes, there would need to be schedule work when a West coast team is going to London, presumably after a bye or after a TH night game.

    I don't think it's a good idea, but all the signs are that it's a done deal.

    You don't spend $1 billion on a new stadium with a double retractable pitch (grass and artificial turf) just on the chance that it may be used for a few games and rock concerts.


    (Note. We live in turbulent times and things could get in the way -- a left-wing government might not give the NFL the tax breaks it wants, and so on. So I'm not saying it's unbreakable.)

    It's patsfans. I don't need to meditate standing on my head for 4 hours before deeming a post worthy. I throw **** against the wall and go back to looking at tranny porn.

    I always thought the Jaguars would eventually relocate to Tijuana.

    Boston to Seattle or San Diego is the longest possible trip and such trips are rare. You would have 8 trips to London each year and as many as 16 if you count the London teams road games.
