If this thing in London works out, will the NFL expand?

Any exposure that the NFL can get overseas is a good thing.

I am sorry but I think it is ridiculous that they are trying to have games overseas before they expand the league to Canada. Not just because I am Canadian, but look at the travel time that will be put in by the fins and the midgets. Can u imagine that on a regular basis?? Canada is closer, the market is there and the beer is better!! Football in London....bah!!!

Agreed. Stay in North America if we expand. NFL europa folded didn't it?

I think it folded because the NFL now knows it has a market and will provide better football, but not as much so when the Londoners go to a game it will probably cost big $$$. I say that if the NFL wants to play overseas, then the season should be lengthened and every team given two bye weeks, the second being the week before the teams overseas game.

If the NFL wants to expand and have more teams in the league then we should go to an 18 or 19 game schedule with 2 bye weeks. Add two more wild card teams to the playoffs and give all division winners a first round bye in the playoffs.

If the NFL wants to take a game away from the home crowd then we as the fans who made this league possible should be compensated with more football!!

Besides...the CFL plays 19 games!! :bananen_smilies046:

I think that the success of the CFL may be keeping us out of there. But I certainly don't dislike the concept of trying to generate more interest in the game, overseas. Although I think the ideal would be to get them interested enough to start their own league. I believe that Germany is very fond of our game. Perhaps they could be the sparkplug in the idea.

I have some buddies that were stationed over there in Germany and they stated that there are a ton of Chiefs fans there.

Chiefscrowd goes overseas? I like it. We should have a research and development trip over there to make sure that the Chiefs Crowd would thrive over there. Admin, send Canada and myself as ambassadors to Germany on behalf of the Crowd to scout for new members. However, to make sure we get maximum exposure for the CROWD we will need to be sent over there during Oktober Fest. Admin, please make sure we get first clase seats also, we will need to stretch out on the way home after that bender...I mean recruited trip.

We wouldn't want them to think that Crowders can't hold their beer so maybe we should get together and have a tryout to be on the official ChiefsCrowd.com Oktoberfest German recruiting advisors team!! Sponsored by your friends at ChiefsCrowd.com

We might need a few more ambassadors, just to make sure we get the coverage we need to represent the CROWD.

If anyone is going to Germany it is me.

I spent 4 years over there creating Chiefs fans with the tapes of the games my ex wife sent me.

I went to Oktoberfest in Munich, and out drank all of the Herman the flaming Germans put together!

I know the layout and may even still have a GF or two waiting for me to come back.

It will have to wait until next year though, Oktoberfest starts in September and ends VERY early in October.
