Question of the Day - 11/06 RE: REad & REact


Recommended Posts

:blueshoe:   Earlier this season - when the Lions were in London to play the Falcons - RB Reggie Bush was quoted as saying that the NFL would definitely be placing an NFL franchise - AND - awarding a Super Bowl to London.

 

:blueshoe:   Agree or disagree - and - why ??

Not gonna happen.. LA will get a team before London.. why have a team in London?.. you could never have a MNF or TNF.. we would just be stuck with 630am games.. or noon games.. are players really gonna play at 1 or 2 in the morning to play in London?

If there is an NFL franchise placed in London down the road, does that mean a sister city in America will adopt it & exchange cuisine bets during rivalry games like Philadelphia sends them cheese steak sandwiches & England sends them fish & chips?

I have always hesitated to comment on anything a Busch or Bush says.......from

Nice play on last names there. Way to take a trivial Reggie Bush line & run with it Brent. Honestly, I can't see an American football team headquartered permanently overseas, but families stationed abroad would like it as a small taste of home I guess. NFL Europe run by Oliver Luck, Andrew Luck's dad, got dismantled so I don't see Roger Goodell green lighting this idea in the next 5-10 years personally.

Does the audience have to yell "God Save The Queen" before we listen to the US National Anthem as protocol for a football team founded in London & is there a charter that must be signed along with a royal stamped seal that must be imprinted on paper before the new stadium can be christened or welcomed into the league like smashing a champaign bottle of wine for a naval ship's maiden voyage across her bough? Just messing around...

If a referee ejects a player from a game in London, are they subjected to the French Guillotine or forced to settled a heated argument in Parliament as punishment for the lapse in judgement on the field? 

 

Let them eat cake! Okay, maybe not.

:blueshoe:   In my humble opinion - Reggie Bush isn't in any position to have personal knowledge of the NFL's future plans in either the USA - or - England.  Thank God.

 

:blueshoe:   I think the NFL will continue to stage games in London - because it is all about the "bottom line".  However - I do NOT believe that the NFL owners will agree to actually placing an NFL team in the London market full time.  After all - they OWN the teams that would ultimately be jet-lagging their players on a regular basis.  Additionally - the argument presented earlier about the early AM games and the inability for a London team to play MNF and/or TNF games is something the owners will take a serious look at.

 

:blueshoe:   As for the NFL awarding a Super Bowl to London - I would hope that the owners are smart enough to know that their product can be marketed overseas - but - they can't award the "big game" overseas.  After all - the Super Bowl is a NIGHT GAME in early February !!  

 

Additionally - NFL owners want to see the Super Bowl played in THEIR stadiums - not in a stadium "across the pond".  There are 32 US cities who WANT to host a Super Bowl - why send that revenue to London ????

You do realise that one of the main stereotypes for Americans over here (besides the morbid obesity) is that they're extremely self obsessed and arrogant.....

    • Alright, here it goes. These trades will be close enough but not perfect, let me preface them.     Trade 1: Colts trade No.21 to Ravens for No.27 and No.104 (their 3rd round compensatory pick) and No.171 (their 5th round pick) Trade 2: Colts then trade No.27 to Falcons (they move back into Round 1) for pick No.35, their 4th rounder (pick No.108) and their 5th rounder (pick No.148)   Colts 1st pick: Round 2 Pick No.35 - Payton Turner, DE, Houston 6'5", 270 lbs - strong, good natural bend and agility for his size, fits our D to a tee. Some might say this might be a reach but they said that about Leonard too, and a very good system fit is worth half a round or round early, IMO   Colts 2nd pick: Round 2 Pick No.54 - Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa, 6'8", 311 lbs (lots of Jared Veldheer comparisons, very good athlete much like Braden Smith) - very quick on his feet, should be able to definitely transition to LT, I think he is a better prospect and athlete than Dillon Radunz at this stage of the draft, with longer arms and larger hands, IMO.   Colts 3rd pick: Round 3 Pick No.104 - Jabril Cox, LB, LSU, 6'3", 232 lbs - his athleticism will improve our LB corps and he has good arm length as well that Ballard covets, very good instincts and explosive with good cover talent   Colts 4th pick: Round 4 Pick No.108 -  Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State, 6'3", 207 lbs - has good speed, route running needs work which is why he will be available here, can be used like Alshon Jeffery for the big X WR/big body for slants for Reich's system while also sneaking past DBs for the occasional surprise home run hit   Colts 5th pick: Round 4 Pick No.127 - Hunter Long, TE, Boston College, 6'5", 254 lbs - body type is very close to Dallas Goedert and he will be our Burton replacement, receiving TE that is a mismatch for safeties and LBs   Colts 6th pick: Round 5 Pick No.148 - Benjamin St. Juste, CB, Minnesota, 6'0", 202 lbs - I am on the group consensus that Ballard will be drafting only for depth at cornerback unless some great value screams at him; and this is the kind of developmental prospect that fits what they like in CBs that is long that I expect the Colts to draft and develop.   Colts 7th pick: Round 5 Pick No.165 - Jonathan Marshall, DT, Arkansas, 6'3", 310 lbs - Very quick and disruptive athletic DT that is suited to play 3-technique on the inside.   Colts 8th pick: Round 5 Pick No.171 - Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati, 6'0", 206 lbs - excellent special teamer and has played a lot of big nickel for Cincinnati, compares to George Odum     Colts 9th pick: Round 6 Pick No.206 - Jamie Newman, QB, Wake Forest, 6'3", 234 lbs - might be a later round Jacoby Brissett all over but should help with occasional usage of RPOs and QB sneaks by the goal line   Colts 10th pick: Round 7 Pick No.248 - Chauncey Golston, DE, Iowa, 6'5", 269 lbs - long armed developmental prospect who actually played well lining up inside at Senior Bowl, might work good in certain sub packages     Alright now, crucify me.   
    • No it isn't.  But there's nothing wrong with hoping

    • There's less than 0 percent chance Steelers take that deal
