The NFL has announced that starting in 2007, two regular season games will be played in either Mexico, Canada, or Europe.
The plan, announced last month, was approved by owners in New Orleans
yesterday at the recommendation of new commissioner Roger Goodell.
"We are talking about a limited number of games that we think will have a
tremendous impact," Goodell said. "It’s in response to the growing fan interest
in our game overseas. There are more and more fans on a global basis."
Germany has been said to be a top spot due to it’s number of large stadiums. Hey commissioner Goodell, if you could do me a favor and schedule the Eagles to play in Munich during Oktober fest, that would be great. Talk about the ultimate road trip.
