I saw this story today and I wasn’t that surprised. This is the natural progression of sport, trying to branch out to new markets. Unlike the NBA, the NFL hasn’t translated overseas very well. So the NFL is considering playing the Super Bowl in London someday. What is the negative here? Will old school NFL fans be upset that ‘our sport’ may play its biggest game in another country. Or do you not care. Most people can’t afford to travel to the Super Bowl. Companies get all the tickets anyway. For most fans the Super Bowl is something we watch on TV.
So, if it bothers you that this is a possibility, let me know why.
