NFL has a mess on its hands in Mexico

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Imagine all the people that booked flights and hotel rooms in Mexico. I'm sure that's non-refundable. They must be pissed. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk...

American football is not a global sport like baseball, basketball, and soccer it never has been and never will be. The sooner they figure it out the better.

I know the games in London are full of ex-patriots and American workers in England, and tourism for the game. There is an American Football following in Germany, Sweden and few other European countries.

I would imagine the same goes for Mexico city.

NFL claims player safety paramount so game will be moved to Los Angeles...

Translation: NFL League Office will do anything to keep the Saints from getting home-field advantage in the playoffs...

And the Rams should have to play in London next year...

If you switch few to most that becomes correct.

That field looks like Matt Ryan's underpants on a bad day.

Re: NFL has a mess on its hands in Mexico

Why is the NFL so concerned about field conditions for Monday night?

Never had a problem with forcing and letting teams play on baseball diamonds forever.

Also Philadelphia’s field caused many career ending injuries and that wasn’t a problem either.

Those mexicans can probably resod that field in like 10 minutes

The sod will be a little uneven but you take what you can get.



Remember WR Wendell Davis getting hurt in Philly over their crappy field?

NFL has money to burn. They could care less where the game is. People will go and the tv money has already been made.
