A Super Bowl in London??!?!?!?!?

There a ton's of articles on this subject, but heres one from ESPN. Not that I really expect to many die hard sports fans missed this one.

This might be one of the dumbest ideas I have ever heard. Now this is not a knock on London, I have been there and I hope at some point in my life I have the opportunity to go back. This is just a knock on the idea of actually having the Super Bowl anywhere BUT the United States. There were other countries that have been kicked around as well, but no matter the location, I still think it needs to stay here.

Now I am completely for doing overseas games during the regular season. And I was honestly suprised after the failure of the European Football League (or whatever it was called) that Wembley has sold out two games that have been play there. And at a stadium that holds over 100,000 people. I also LOVED when Ed Hochuli (I want a Hochuli ref jersey) made a call in spanish when they play a regular season game in Mexico.

But the US is still the NFL's biggest market of fans by leaps and bounds. Taking the Super Bowl away from the US would be a huge slap in the face to the dedicated NFL fans that have made some call football America's "new" national pastime.

And before any fellow Bengals fans try to defend the idea of moving the Super Bowl somewhere else, imagine a scenario for me. Say London does get a Super Bowl.... and then the Bengals make it..... and then the Bengals win it.

It already costs probably 5,000 dollars to go to a Super Bowl. How much more do you think it will be to try to get to one in London?
