    im not realy a fan, just was interested due to the spurs tie in. Ive read a few differents views from wanting a fully fledged team based in London to simply more games per year.

    Iím opposed to a franchise over here, but Why wouldnít it compete? They would have an expansion draft (if a new team) or just move a team. The players really wouldnít have much choice. Iíd assume they be based on the East Coast and just fly over for games

    Your right the drafted players donít get a choice but when it comes to free agency it will be a lot harder to recruit players.

    I have been to a few international series games but in reality there rubbish. Much better to go to the States to watch a game. Iím heading over again in October.

    I think theyíd be just fine when they have crazy salary cap space to offer over the odds.

    I donít go to the Wembley games anymore, I realised I didnít care who won and wouldnít watch the games if I was at home so have stopped.

    Will hopefully be going to Pack v Pats or Pack v Rams next season in the states

    Great finish at the Minnesota game but what was the Saints safety doing? Was he going for a glory interception or wipe out hit?

    Wipe out from what I saw, just needed to stand his ground and shove him out of bounds.

    Torn loyalties on that last play - Brees was my playoff QB for a media fantasy league so needed him to get through. But a friend of mine is a die-hard Vikings fan who had flown out to Minnesota to watch the game. Either way I won or lost. Terrible play by the Saints' DB. All he had to do was tackle him in bounds and the game was over.

    So next week, New England will take advantage of the worst championship QB in 40 years, Blake Bortles and get to another Super Bowl. The Eagles v Vikings game will be a classic defensive battle.

    Like Minnesota, great bit of drama at the end but that no.43 for Saints is going to need therapy for that 'tackle'.
    Watched the Steelers/Jags game, was a good game but went wrong way for me. Is Big Ben a bit one dimensional, a younger fitter QB could make more gains running with the ball no?
    Can the Jags defence keep the Pats in check? Good defence worked for Denver v Panthers 2 years ago. Hope so.
    Hope Minnesota can go all the way.

    What is a "defence" - are you talking about soccer here?
