The Saints are the HOME team in the UK game

You heard it here first, the TV figures in the UK are very high now and they want an exciting team who score alot of points after the NYG Miami low scoring one, i have inside information that the home team IS the Saints.

It will be the game against Oakland (most likely) or San Diego.

I know this information will probably piss you guys off losing a home game but you'll find out in a week anyway.

I'll take this with a grain of salt considering you have never posted here before and haven't posted a link.

Re: The Saints are the HOME team in the UK game

If this is true, losing the home game doesn't bother me that much. What bothers me is the fans, more specifically all the damn whistles in the stands. I could never watch NFL Europe because of that crap.

I guess the NFL has a long term plan with this. Maybe they are hoping that the NFL catches on in Europe, and that some freak from Romania who is 6 foot 10, 370 pounds with 4.3 speed is found.

There's a link somewhere on ESPN.com suggesting that we are one of the teams in consideration I believe.

I also read somewhere that we're in consideration. And here's a link from KFFL. You guys can be too hard on newbies sometimes.
