I hope the Bucs never play overseas.

Hopefully, this is set up only for pre season games.  A regular season game would suck for both teams, and throw them out of whack with the jet lag.

I do not like green eggs and ham.

And of course we are gonna be one of the shafted teams.

A little food coloring never hurt.

And I hope you are wrong.

Keep hoping...McKay's already telling the competition committee how popular the Bucs are in England; "Look how happy they were when those nice Glazers bought Man U"...

Now they would have do these games when the 2 teams have a bye week the next week. I could just imagine Gruden if they told him he had a game in Europe next week. He would have a freaking meltdown.

I think expanding the game worldwide would be a mistake.

As far as tickets are concerned is it an away game? I'm too tired to figure out the math right now......will some teams get screwed out of 8 home games?

From a business standpoint it's very smart.  More fans = more merchandise sold.  Even if foreign games aren't all that common, if you can make people interested in the teams, maybe you can sell something to them or, at the very least go to the NFL web site and click on an advertisement or two.

From a business standpoint, it's not smart if it kills the interest in the usa and eventually the league folds.
