I know we've had a question like this before but the 610 Sports afternoon crew reminded me of it with their afternoon conversation. And, well, it's June and there's not much going on.
Would you be OK with moving a Chiefs home game to London?
Earlier this week, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he hopes to see a team in London within a decade, which has sparked the debate once again. The Rams announced earlier this year they will be playing a home game in London in each of the next three years.
610 Sports host Jay Binkley is on Team America and wouldn't want to see games moved overseas. I can see that but it's a It's a tough question because removing even one game day would have a big impact on a lot of people, not all positively. I don't know what a standard lease says on something like this but from a simple matter of fairness it doesn't seem like a team should be able to make this move unilaterally, especially when taxpayer money is involved.
The other side of the debate is about exposing your team to a new market, establishing a larger fan base.
Let's get your NFL-games-in-London opinions in now because we probably won't be talking about it again until the Rams and Patriots line up on Oct. 23 (three days before my wedding).
