I think the NFL is more so thinking about what teams have international followings. That's why they sent NY last year. I don't know for a fact, I haven't been over seas in the past year, but I would guess people everywhere followed the story of New Orleans, including the Saints.
It still sucks though! Those London business men better open up their checkbooks to our charities!

You mean NFL business men who dreamt up the idea.

Perhaps Wembley itself and a few souvenir traders and perhaps a TV company will make a bit of money. But I doubt that London will notice any extra business. Most of the Euro' American football fans will come into London on the day and leave. There will no noticeable influx of money.

The clear winner is the NFL. Maybe the Saints and the Chargers may pick up something from merchandise sales. But I bet you, Wembley will be graced by fans who favour Dolphins, 49ers, Cowboys, ...... and they will want to buy ......... er ........ not Saints and Chargers merchandise.

I don't know too much about the UK, so forgive me if I'm wrong UK_WHODAT, but isn't our game during your rainy season? I could have sworn the reason the "Sports Experts" said the NY/Miami game (worst game all year) sucked was because the fields over there are not meant for football play, but are for soccer?

Feel free to correct me UK or should I say "Mate".
