      I'm not sure if I could support the London Rams.
      by AvengerRam_old
      The NFL announced today that it will increase the number of games played in London next year.

      Some have suggested that the league wishes to have a team in London one day.

      The Rams have an owner who also owns a sports franchise in London.

      While I don't really think it will happen, let me say right now for the record: a move to London might be the only thing I can imagine that would cause me to cease being a Rams fan.

      I am that opposed to having a full-time NFL franchise in London.

      Frankly, I can't think of any good argument for having an NFL franchise in London (apart from the potential financial benefits to the league, which I don't care about). In terms of tradition, logistics (distance and time zone), the benefit of regional rivalries, and desireability for players, it is an absolutely horrible idea.

      So, while I will support the Rams in St. Louis, Los Angeles, or any place in between, I don't ever want to hear about the London Rams.

      Reflections from London
      by TorontoRam
      I'm sure there have been posts about the advantages and disadvantages of the Rams playing a 'home game' in London, England. And, I'm sure I'd agree with most of them. However, Mrs. TorontoRam and some of our family and friends attended the game at Wembley and the surrounding festivities in Trafalgar Square and the 'Tailgate' at Wembley prior to the game. A few brief reflections:
      • The NFL, Rams, and Patriots had the events, including the game very well organized and kudos to all including and especially Kevin Demoff and his staff
      • The fans, many of whom were not necessarily Rams or Patriots fans but NFL fans (stands looked like a montage of NFL jerseys) were well behaved and obviously enjoyed the game (no hooliganism)
      • The staff at Wembley have their act together big time. No parking and 85,000 people to access and egress the venue. London bobbies on horseback provided crowd control as fans left the stadium, allowing about 1,000 per train to enter the Tube as each train arrived and after each train departed

      All in all it was a great event for the NFL and both teams although a disappointing outcome for the Rams.
      After the game we went back to our hotel in London and watched Eli and the Giants carve up the Cowboys when it counted, which made our hearts leap with joy and gave us at least some consolation.

      Chicago Bears @ London Buccaneers, any Rams fans going to the UK game this year?

      I've had a late rethink and decided to go, wonder if any UK Rams fancied a micro-bash.

      Hey Y'all from London!
      by The Special One
      Hey guys,

      I've noticed already there are a lot of Ram fans from the UK on these boards. I've posted quite a few times already, so this is a bit of a late intro.

      I was at the London NFL game last year (Giants-Dolphins), and it was a fantastic experience.

      I hope the rams can bouce back after the terrible season we had last year, and make a run at taking the division title off Seattle.

      As always...Go Rams! :l
