    The NFL just announced they will have the Falcons, Raiders and Jaguars all host home games overseas in London next year.

    Being a division rival of the Jaguars increases our odds of playing across the pond.

    What are your feeling on the Titans playing one of their away games in London next season?

    I'm for it. Good exposure, worldwide. I'm sure a lot of the very few international NFL fans have any idea that the Titans exist.

    Im all for it as well for the same reasons. International exposure, pick up a fraction of more fans to the fan-base plus merchandise would go up. I dont see how going there to play would be a bad thing as long as its a "AWAY" game.

    If it were a home game I wouldn't be for it but if it is ever an away game then sure why not?

    100% against. The Titans @ Jags game is the only Titans game I get to go to every season. **** you, Goodell.

    Merchandise sales might rise, but we'd have to share all European sales with every other team.

    You only keep all the merchandise sales on stuff sold at the Titans pro shop or the Titans online store.

    Stop this...stop this idiotic insanity of spreading the NFL to the UK. Its nothing more than glorified marketing designed to pad the pockets of the NFL with even MORE money. Personally I think that is why they want to extend the season by a game or so....so they can feel better about sticking games overseas without eating into the current fanbase's number of home games they get to watch.

    If you want to spread it around then arrange to have the games televised over there for no charge...but lets cut this crap out before it goes too far.

    I live in the UK and I haven't been to any of the games in London. I'm not interested in missing my watching my team on the internet to go watch 2 teams that I don't support play in a live game.

    I'd go to London if the Titans were playing there but I'd rather save up and travel to the states to see the Titans play.

    There's a big NFL following in Europe and a lot of fans from Germany and the Netherlands come to the London games. I think interest in the NFL in UK has gone up as a result of hosting and a lot more people understand the game now and enjoy it. There's been some poor games which has been unfortunate but but the fact that they're regular season games keeps people interested.

    Must be a huge expense bringing the teams over but I don't think the Goodell would be doing it if it wasn't profitable.

    Have they ever scheduled a divisional game in the past in London? It is already unfair to the hosting team. I feel it would be too much of a disadvantage and god knows the jags need all the help they can get.
