Interesting. They would set up a rotation so that teams would only lose 1 home game every 16 years.

Canadates for next year (if they go ahead and do it) would be canada, mexico, england and germany.

The teams that play abroad would get a bye the following week so that they can adjust to the time change.

 

 

I guess I wouldnt mind to much if they played them abroad?

 

 

Thoughts?

Didn't they play a game in Mexico City last year? I think ti was the Niners and Cardinals.

 

Pretty sure it was pre-season though.

 

It was a regular season game.

 

I guess it's a possibility if the NFL wants to break down barriers and gain popularity outside of North America. I'd probably hate it when the Dolphins would have to do it though.

The MLB Japan experiement really didn't do much (at least as far as I perceive).

 

To me, it's pointless and unnecessary.

 

To the most vocal critic, you could argue it's a tremendous disadvantage as home-field really does matter in the NFL, and this completely takes it away, and in a sport where a single game matters extensively, it's going to be met with opposition.
