    ive been reading that a ton of players said that they would never sign for an NFL team in London. theyre pretty much telling the NFL that if they do that, that the team will have no good free agents.

    but on the other side, couldnt the coaches begin scouting European players like the NBA did?

    NO. Fucking LA doesn't have a team and the NFL has it's panties wet over London.

    Excellent point... and furthermore, Mexico City would be a better option if you could stand severed heads being tossed on the field and Jerry Jones crying over losing all his Mexican fanbase.

    A logistics nightmare. Away games would be a nightmare for the team and for teams coming in. Not to mention a Thursday game following a Sunday game.

    BTW, the player's opinion matter not. If they are told to go to London, they will go. How many of them do you think will retire rather than go to London?

    Good luck landing free agents if you're London... the taxes and cost of living would kill you.

    You'd make about 50% of an equivalent contract elsewhere.

    Can you imagine that travel schedule?

    Youd need a few euro teams to even think about it
