Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week that the league is not considering playing its championship game in London. He shot down a BBC Sport report that "'substantive talks" were under way between the NFL and London officials.

"We have never looked at London or Mexico City as a site," he said.

The NFL again issued a denial Sunday that a Super Bowl outside the United States was being considered, this time via Twitter.

Brian McCarthy, the NFL's vice president of corporate communications, tweeted: "Re: story from UK. We are not pursuing idea of putting a Super Bowl in London or anywhere outside US. Reports last week/today inaccurate."
I wonder if they were actually talking about something like the Pro Bowl and it got twisted into "Super Bowl"...
maybe...they can have the Pro Bowl, no one watches it and none of the real Superstars play in it anymore either.

Looks like the rumors of an 18 game season is coming back up again since the owners are having a meeting soon. Only issue I have as a question, how are you going to evaluate the talent who is on the edge of making the team?
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

they pretty much know after 2 pre-season games and throughout training camp who will make it....also they could increase the amount of players on the so called taxi squad...which i think was also mentioned....and increase the rosters to 58 was another i heard!!

I heard about the increase in the roster but didn't know that a number was out there. 58 could make sense but the next question I would ask is if that would include any "taxi squad" similar to the practice squad (or are you stating that the taxi squad is the practice squad)?

From what I hear, the Commissioner has stated that this will not happen. I think it will be a timing issue. I brought it up before, if they wanted to have the game start around 6 or 6:30 PM Eastern Time, then that would be after 11 PM London time. Don't think it will happen just for this.

Yes, on a technicality, however, I also heard that the same group is going to file a similar lawsuit once the current one has been resolved, if they lose.

Patriots' safety Harrison announces retirement

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Rodney Harrison is done hitting quarterbacks.

The two-time Pro Bowl safety announced his retirement on Wednesday after a 15-year career for the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers.

The 36-year-old Harrison holds the NFL record for defensive backs with 30 1/2 sacks. He also has 34 interceptions, making him the only player to have at least 30 of each.

If Bud Selig were the commissioner, it would happen.
Hell, if Bud Selig were the commissioner, the Bears would play the Cubs and White Sox in a regular season game. :roll:

Timing is one ridiculous aspect for sure...
but, I think, more importantly... how about the economic angle??

How do you consider taking away a U.S. city's financial boom that follows the game into town?
What U.S. city would not HUGELY benefit from the dollars that flow in.
I know we're talking a couple years up the road, but there's no doubt about the beneficial impact to the community
that hosts a Super Bowl. I certainly saw it here in SD in both '98 and '03... and we do miss it.

That's another reason why I don't think it will happen......... yet anyway.
