Default Re: London wins right to host first game outside N. America

Well few franchises have been more loyal to the NFL and have a greater sense of tradition than the Giants (around longer than the Steelers, agreed to share TV revenue equally with small markets teams in early 60s to jump start the rise of the NFL) and they are rumored to be one of the teams going to London.

I hapen to think American football is one sport that will not take off overseas, but I do not think only chump franchises like the Cardinals are going to be giving up future regular season home games to play overseas - there must be some major financial incentives to get a team to give up a home game.
