Report: Packers will Play in London in 2016

According to a report out of Jacksonville, the Green Bay Packers will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in London in 2016.

The game will be a home game for the Jags, so the Packers wouldn’t be losing a game at Lambeau. That’s something the muckety mucks in the organization have made it clear they are not amenable to.

And why would they be? Too much cash generated at Lambeau Field and the season ticket holders would riot.

The Jaguars, on the other hand, is a team no one — not even people in Jacksonville — care about. In 2012, they agreed to a multi-year commitment to play one of their home games in London. That commitment began in 2013 and ends in 2016. It is expected to be extended another four years.

It has long been rumored that the Packers would be the Jaguars’ 2016 London opponent.

While they would never give up a home game to do so, the Packers have expressed interest in playing in London. They’re one of the league’s biggest draws and we’ve known for some time that the NFC North plays the AFC South in 2016. The Packers two away AFC South games are Jacksonville and Tennessee.

    Terrible news

    YEEEEESSS. Fuck I’m crying but this is my chance.

    My opinion remains the same as last year.

    Well mates What a crikey this is. This is barmy. That wanker commish and tosser Murphy must have been smoking some wacky backy and getting on the piss in order to go off the trolley this bad. In order for Murphy to be snookered the commish must have photos of Murphy’s twig and berries. Murphy is to cheeky for someone about to throw a spanner in the works. Hopefully both of the wankers fall arse over tit.

    The NFL is cock up and are about to drop a clanger on this. The whole damn bunch should be detained at her majesty’s pleasure. What makes the NFL think they can take their John Thomas and stick it up the Packers arse. This is rubbish if those nancy boys at the NFL think they can continue to roger the packer and NFL fans by going across the pond every year.

    The English probably believe this is the bees knees. I say the NFL can suck our bollocks. this whole experiment is sixes and sevens. We say codswallop to the whole barmy mess. Bugger off Nancy boys. Pip pip.

      Blimey, that is the best post here in weeks.

      Bees knees was an American slang term from the 1920s, not a British one. Few other expression seem contrived as well.

        Go fuck yourself Wolf. How’s that for an expression.

        1. E. Wolf July 15, 2015

          What’s a matter? Your pussy sore?

      2. Arcturus July 16, 2015

        What the fuck would you know? You mad someone’s writing got a compliment and your twaddle just draws derision?

        1. E. Wolf July 16, 2015

          Given how highly you think of yourself, it surprises even me that you set yourself up so beautifully for this. It is almost too easy, but I love being able to say that I was right and that you (or anyone else I cross swords with) is wrong:

          These among just two links which confirm bees knees is US American slang.
          As for my writing only meeting derision, you’d be surprised at some of the emails Monty has forwarded me complimenting me.
          And with that, drink my piss and choke to death.

    The NFL will continue this as long as they make enough money out of doing it. As good as it is to see the elite teams playing, they are always mis-matched against poor teams such as Jacksonville. The novelty of piss-poor games will soon wear out on the UK audience and attendance will fall. The idea of a franchise is preposterous, surely it’s just being used to manipulate negotiations in the NFL’s favour for the LA situation. The NFL likes money & has no representation there & is must break their greatly little hearts.

      @Alan,

      You are totally wrong. They are selling out Wembley continuously and building a fan base for teams. I have a friend from England that saw a Cowboys game several years back and has become a life long fan ever since. Unfortunately, his heart lies with the Cowgirls. He’s a Brit, I give him a pass. I’ve seen this shit work first hand.

      This is making some future Packer Backer limeys. That is, unless they are all attracted to shitty, shiny helmets with blue mixed in.

    Hopefully this will be Favre’s comeback game….

    Fuck those British faggots. UK is the only country on Earth with women fatter & uglier than the USA. Also, most of the dudes over there are bird-chested, tea-sipping fruit cakes with halitosis & bad teeth. London smells like a toilet in Summer. Goddammit NFL is a Yankee sport for masculine men. Not Nigel, Jamie & Jeeves … Fuck the limeys

    I just hope the extended travel comes before the bye week.

  8. Arcturus July 16, 2015

    I’m going.
