01:48 PM ET 06.18 | The Minnesota Vikings are open to playing more games in London, according to Neil Reynolds of the NFL UK. Reynolds spent time with the Vikings, and talked with Lester Bagley, Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development, who did not rule out the possibility of the team playing more games overseas as they wait for their new stadium to be completed in 2016. Bagley added that the team would see how this season's Sept. 29 bout against the Pittsburgh Steelers went at Wembley Stadium before making any decision on a return to London. The Vikings have never played in London before. This season, they are taking part in one of two NFL games at Wembley. The second will be played on Oct. 27 between the San Francisco 49ers and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Two games in London this year. So that's about 160,000 American NFL fans who won't be able to see their home team in their home stadium. Baddell, you are a greedy, greedy, worthless turd.

If teams have a problem going East to West and vice versa, how difficult must it be to play overseas? The money is blinding Goodell.
