Obviously neither the owners nor the players have any consideration for the fans that made them waht they are or there would not be the current situation that we have.

If the NFL must play outside the U.S. play the Pro-Bowl or some other non-consequensial game there.  I hate the idea of any regular season game, Bears, Buccaneers or any team to be subjected to the rigors of playing 8 time zones away.  It's unfair and stupid.

NFL is American.  Play the games here and let the foreign 'fans' travel to our country.

Go Bears!!!!

This is great news for all those die hard fans of the Bears and Bucs in London.  To hell with the fansin the United Sates that will lose the home game, I mean that is only 12.5% of the fanbase that will be srewwed out of seeing their favorite team live so that people 2000 miles away can go to a game.

I am all for expanding the games reach but it is a shame they do it at the expense of the fans who made the game what it is today.  The fans money is what built the NFL.

WHY?
The Bucs have already played in London vs the Patriots, why do they have to go there again?

Oh wait.  There is no NFL right now. Disregard
