NFL Commissioner Goodell: League Wants Team Full-Time In London
Published June 5, 2013
BRIDGING THE GAP: Goodell said, "If we go to three London games, what we'll likely do is ask Jacksonville [to] potentially play two or ask three different teams to host.'' But in Jacksonville, Vito Stellino noted it is “likely they will have to ask three different teams to host because the Jaguars have not indicated an interest in playing two.” A Jaguars spokesperson said, "Our focus is on the one game per year that we are committed to play there the next four years. That's all we're thinking about.'' Goodell “apparently didn't consult the Jaguars before publicly mentioning the possibility of them playing a second game” (JACKSONVILLE.com, 6/4).
