Angry Houston Texan in Mexico???

I hope not!!! I hope it is the Dallas Cowboys!! The Mexicans should love the Cowboys. I don't want my Texans to lose a home game.

I think he's talking about the NFL wanting to have a game in Mexico City like they did over in Japan.

I would hate to lose a home game to mexico. Not that there's anything wrong with mexico, but you don't get to have your fans

I imagine it would be one of our away games.. and one of the other team's away games also. I mean.. it certainly isnt a HOME game.

thats not possible (having 2 away teams in one game) one team would have to sacrifice a home game

Yeah, it wouldn't be impossible, but it is somewhat confusing to think about it.

It would be unfair for the Texans or the Cowboys to play in Mexico. It would be like 7 home games and 9 road games.

Pre-season is ok.

I really don't think we have to worry about this. The league is trying to spread the popularity of the game worldwide. So they are probably going to be wanting to send the "Elite" teams over there. In their and the media's eyes we don't fit that bill and sending us over there would be the equvilent of sending the Clippers over there. It's not going to happen. If I was a Pat fan our Colts fan I would be worried. I'm pretty sure however, that they are going to be sending one of the overly hyped media driven NY teams.

Default tex or cow or raiders

ESPN Deportes confirmed that they will be a regular season game in Mexico City.
Since the Cowboys have an intense following among Hispanics, I think that the Cowboys will/may have to sacrifice a home date. Somehow, the NFL would have to reimburse the Cowboys for revenue lost. Also remember, the Cowboys play the Raiders, and the Raiders should also have a following. Next year, we play the Cowboys in Dallas.

The Cowboys have a huge following in Mexico.

Same for the Steelers.

It's all about money and I imagine if the league "asks" a team to go there they would be almost obligated to do so.

It's also a very good way to recruit new fans. I see the fans point of not sacrificing a home game though.

I don't think Jerry Jones would think twice about taking the Cowboys there. In fact at one point I remember a note somewhere about the Cowboys and Texans playing a preseason game there like the Oilers and Cowboys did years ago.

I think it is a bad idea all the way around. The NFL normally is the league that all other leagues follow because the NFL normally makes the best decisions. I think having regular season games, even just one, in another country is a bad idea. I hope they don't do it.

I'm a Mexican and lived in Mexico and I know that over there its bout 80% Cowboys 10% Raiders recently bout 5% Broncos and the other 5% is split among 49ers Steelers and some Dolphins, so if a team is goin it would probably be the Cowboys because with the amount of fans they have over there it would probably feel like a home game for them.

I think the idea STINKS! Don't take one of my home games away unless they are willing to pay my way to Mexico!
