Goodell Sees More Games in England My initial reaction to this is not positive. I would be pretty unhappy to lose a home game due to playing in the UK. If they start upping the number of games played there, this becomes more likely to happen. As far as having a franchise there, the west coast teams would suck it up big time on jet lag. It is a 6 hr hop from NY, 10 hrs from Houston, not sure about California - but 12 hours plus is not a fun length of time to spend on a plane. It takes time to recover from.
