Despite a concession by the NFL’s point man in London that this year’s game between the Bears and the Bucs at Wembley Stadium won’t sell out, Commissioner Roger Goodell has reiterated that the league wants to add a second game in England.
Last month, Goodell told Dan Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal that he’d like to see the league play a second game there. Today, Goodell said it again.
Specifically, Goodell explained that the possibility will be discussed during ownership meetings that will happen this week in Houston.
At a time when Goodell likes to say that fans prefer 18 regular-season games, he should ask the fans what they think about sending an extra game to London each year.
