I guess it was bound to happen and it's good to turn a road game into a neutral field game. If they give us a date, then we'll know when the bye is (or we better).

Default Don’t know if they’ll announce the date before April but..

For logistics it’d be cool if the league gave a early heads up on this

Article I just read said date and times will be announced later today. Seems odd given the fact he schedule isn't even CLOSE to being done let alone announced. Who knows....

Default Don’t know why this is so exciting to anyone

Just my opinion, but I see every one of these England/Mexico games as a giant “fuck you” to the fans.

The NFL has always been our game; why is it so important to export it to people who are nuts about futbal, a decidedly inferior sport. Just asshole Goodall attempting to create some kind of legacy other than worst commissioner ever.

As those of you who think it would be a great trip, I say it would be even a greater trip if you actually visited the country during your stay. There’s always the Linc back home to see an Iggles game.

Love the guy or hate him, he's turned the NFL from $10 billion to $20 billion per year in revenue generated, and it's still climbing. I can't stand the guy be he gets the job done for what he was hired for and that is making money for the league.

I've been to Jacksonville. I don't feel an urge to go back.

I haven't been to London, and it's on my bucket list. This seems like a good excuse to participate in a fun road experience while also seeing places that I have always wanted to see. And I expect to do some sightseeing while I'm in the area.

Bobby, can you explain what the hospitality thing includes versus a regular ticket?

First let me answer a few questions you guys brought up—
1. The game is either Oct 21 or 28.
2. NO team got screwed out of their bye week. It was left up to the teams if they wanted a bye week after the trip. One team chose not to have their bye then.
3. I know OB you hate the idea but just like basketball ;the Sixers are here tonight playing the Celtics) and hockey , our football is being globalised. They do have an American football league over here. London has 3 teams in it. Sean Payton used to QB the Leicester team long ago.
4. If any of you come over I would be glad to show you around London if youve never been. We could get around much cheaper than taking one of those tour buses!!!

Birder, the hospitality package is your own private entrance to the suite, seats on the 50, drinks for 3 hours before the game, and one hour after. You have a cold buffet before the game and both a cold and hit buffet at halftime. You get a visit from some former players—Cecil Martin was over here in week 17. You get a collector’s edition game pass, and a program. That’s the basic hospitality package. There’s an upgraded one that includes a champagne reception before the game.

Interesting. Sounds pricey. I might rather just tailgate (or whatever is acceptable) and sit in the stands with the other animals.

It is. The basic package is about $500 and the upgraded package about $680. They have a 2 game deal that goes about $1000. They have a huge tailgate section. This past season I went to see the Browns-Vikings at Twickenham and it was awesome. On the streets leading to the stadium they had food stalls and places hawking NFL merchandise. I will make one suggestion to anyone coming over. Try and get rooms in either a Travelodge or Premier Inn. Those are the only 2 places that charge per room per night. Everywhere else charges per person, per room per night.

Thanks for the advice. So the hospitality thing comes with a ticket? Or does it just cover the extra amenities?

Is the tailgate section something that only the hospitality folks can access?

Sorry to be so clueless...

May I recommend

http://www.durrantshotel.co.uk/

I was out to dinner in London and hailed a taxi back to the hotel. He asked where I was going. I told him Durrant's. He said "oh, you mean Fawlty Towers." True, very true.
