I haven't even talked about the expense to fly a jumbo jet across the Atlantic, whether or not London-based NFL players will be paid in British Pounds or US dollars and how that conversion rate would essentially double NFL player salaries under the next Collective Bargaining Agreement, whether or not the London-based team staff would be subject to US taxes, whether they will be subject to European Union labor and employment laws...and a zillion other logistical issues that make a team in London a non-starter.
The NFL will never have a team in London.
The currency would be a non issue. Either your contract is in usd, eur or gbp and that's how you get paid no matter where you play. The cost of the jumbo jet wouldn't be an issue either. You are making up a handful of things that aren't actual issues
