Don't see how this works
8 home games a year, how is a fan base going to feel attached. What players are going to be happy with a stable home life. What happens if they make a playoff run who gets the Championship game

This is unreal.
Chaos.
This will be the start of unraveling of the NFL.
This makes no sense.

How will JJags play an away game every other week and have teams going to London for home games every other week?
Logistics...unreal.

At the least, it's leverage for Jacksonville to kick in and public finance the team...

But this may just be a softer way of transitioning the team to London - making the NFL a true global market - Herr Goodell's final feather...

I live 16 miles from the stadium and want nothing to do with the NFL coming here
Its wrong, there was uproar over here at the thought of soccer games getting played in China and the US and rightly so.

I get it in the NBA and Baseball, no ones going to miss a couple of games there but this is crazy and will cause massive problems

Wait till Player A gets drafted and does not want to move to the UK

Player B gets a felony charge and cannot get a VISA

etc etc
