SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- A future Super Bowl champion may someday be crowned overseas in a game witnessed predominantly by a foreign audience, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. "There's a great deal of interest in holding a Super Bowl in London," Goodell told reporters Monday. "So we'll be looking at that."

Let them play the World Series over there, not the Super Bowl

Very bad idea. Why the hell would the NFL run that whole "America's game" series if they plan on making it "America and Europe and possibly other's game" You can't take a **** on fans like that either. It's already difficult enough cost-wise to go to a superbowl if your team is lucky enough to make it, now you have to compete with all of Britain for tickets to the game and plane tickets?

Who cares about showcasing the NFL to Europeans? Europeans don't have the same love of the sport, they can't even get over the fact that we call it football and that is a completely different sport for them. It would be like holding all the World Cup events in Dallas or something...nobody cares, it just takes the game away from the majority of it's fans.

Can't even get started on why this would be a slap in the face of American economy and a complete cluster **** of time zone shifting for both the players and the televised broadcast in the U.S.

With our luck, the Skins will finally make it back to the Big Game and only the super affluent will be able to see it (I know it's bad now, but overseas travel yikes!).

The Super Bowl is the pinnacle of a fans heart. Don't **** on America for an audience that obstensibly couldn't care less. Sure there are English and European fans but I'm not sure it would yield the profit that the NFL would like. It's a no brainer in the US.
