Steelers Rumored For Game In Ireland In 2013

June 21, 2012 12:00 AM



PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — According to a report by the BBC, the NFL has a desire to expand a regular season game into Ireland and the Steelers could be involved.

The league has played a regular season game at London’s Wembley Stadium since 2005 and it will continue that tradition this season. With the success of playing games in London, the NFL reportedly wants to extend a second regular season game into another European city, perhaps Dublin.

Dublin’s Croke Park seats over 80,000 fans and with the connection of Steelers owner Dan Rooney as the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, the Steelers playing in this game makes sense.

“I think it’d be terrific,” Rooney said to the BBC in regards to an NFL game coming to Dublin.

“We came over before back in 1997 and played a pre-season game.

“But now, with the regular season games in London at Wembley proving so successful, and tickets selling out almost as soon as they’re put on sale, I would think it would be good to play a game here, at Croke Park, as the interest in the sport is so strong.”

Sucks if we have to give up a home game to do it.

Better be an away game, sucks they have to go all the way over there to play a game in a country that is never going to have American football anyway, if it's a home game it totally sucks!

I can just see it now, the 2013 "randomly created" schedule (the one that randomly gives the Pats the easiest schedule every year lol) having us playing in New England monday night, then in Ireland Thursday for the Packers , then back in Baltimore the following week.

The schedules have not been "randomly created" for some time now. It works on a rotational system in which a given team plays 1) each team in their division twice, 2) one full intraconference division (rotated yearly), 3) one full interconference division (rotated yearly), and the two teams within the other intraconference divisions that finished in the same position of their respective divisions. That's, for example, why the Steelers play the NFC East this year, because they played them 4 years ago and the scheduling system has rotated back to the NFC East-AFC North matchup. Although the Steelers will play the Packers in 2013 since they played the NFC North in 2009.

Just say no to Ireland. It's a beautiful country, but no!
