Absolutely agree with you 100% . The established UK fanbases over here (Bucs, Pats, Giants etc) would all love to see their team play here but they all say only if it's a road game. The fanclubs here usually organize annual trips to see their teams in the states anyway so even less reason to want their team to lose a home game. I would love to see the Texans here...but only if it was a road trip some year. I'd much rather go see them in Texas tho ...I'm sure I'd enjoy seeing any team play in the states...I'm also happy to catch NFL games in the UK each year nowdays....one day I'd also really want to do is go see a college game in the states as I LOVE college football...Preferably in the South somewhere....hopefully One day it'll happen ! ..In the meantime I'll have to settle for ESPN and Friday night lights on TV....

Forgot to mention earlier....last year, the weekend of the London NFL game between the Bucs and Bears...we went to the fan rally in Trafalgar Square...we watched Jerry McGuire on a big screen and throughout the evening we were entertained by the bucs cheerleaders and Bears brass band. Then Cuba Gooding Jnr (who was in the movie) spoke to us on stage along with Marshall Faulk ...a truly awesome NFLUK weekend...We don't just have the game but we make a weekend of it. Can't wait for this years game between the Rams and Pats
