    At the end of the day it does not effect the amount of games played at Lambeau and offers fans in other countrys the oppertunity to see some NFL action. I hope that GB comes to London before Favre retires, then I will probobly have seen him play live more times that a lot of Wisconsin people :D

    If it doesn't take away a home game, I'm okay with it. But I have a moronic theory that came about.

    What if NFL picks up around the world? That means more teams, the talent we have now is spread thin?

    Or would the talent increase with the rest of the world throwing players into the mix?

    yeah but surely an extra game must be good for NFL and for it to be played in the UK must help the NFL as it proves it is a worldwide sport

    well in the 80s my dad watched nfl when it was free to watch



    a few years ago we got sky t.v in (like cable in america) and the 1st team i watched was green bay beat the seahawks in the post season and in overtime when hasselbeck won the toss and said "we will take the ball and win" he threw a pick the al harris (i think) who returned it for a T.d

    my love just grew from there

    i would also say the madden games on consoles had a big part in my loveo f football

    The funny thing I was thinking is EVERY record set during a 14-game season will be gone. 2000 yard seasons will be a lot more common, and someone will throw 5000 yards again. So much for Marino's remaining record (Favre will beat all his career records by the time he retires).

    I'd be looking foward to a Packersgame somewhere around Europe. Where
    exactly would be no concern. I'd just be there.

    Football has fans everywhere. I think, the only reason why Football
    doesn't spread around the world faster is, that people don't get it. :)
    Someone has to explain it to you, so that you know what's happening
    on the field. I think, that is what the NFL is trying to do with this worldwide GD.

    My first game of football was in 1993. College football, Michigan vs. Iowa State. Quality was sub NFL Europa, but I liked it anyway.

    Then came SuperBowl XXXI and you know what happend.... :)
    I started reading about the great tradition and history of the Green Bay Packers and I never left.

    I got into the packer by two coincidences. I went shopping one day and bought the latest copy of Madden and 'Theres something about mary'. Luckily I watched the film before playing Madden and the rest is history...

    greenwood that is hilarious. cool stories... i think translating soccer to America faces the same challenge of NFL to England, so i think its interesting... i personally like them both equally.

    i think the EPL and NFL are very similiar. and both seem to have the same goal of world wide domination...

    The EPL and European soccer in general is hell bent on dominating the asian market these days. I doubt they will ever seriously try and enter the US market bar a few preseason games every summer.
