And you don't have to travel to games (viewing is not mandatory), you choose to. You decide what you're willing and not willing to do. If I would rather go to Game A than Game B because Game A is easier to get there, that's my prerogative.

Boo Hoo. I live the other side of the Country and LONDON is a pain to get to for me.

But I was still going to go to 2 games, whether there were 3 at Wembley or 3 at Twickenham!!!

What business is it of yours how I reach a decision as to which 2 I attend?

As to how far you personally travel for games, why do I care? It's not my fault the NFL doesn't go to wherever you're from. Does it make you more of a fan if you travel further for the game?

I travelled to the US for games this year so if I can and want to go to a game, I will go, don't worry about that.

I went to two England games at Twickenham for the RWC, transport can be annoying, but not the be all and end all, it's a much better stadium than the Royal Wembley Hospital, and has obviously just undergone loads of work for the World Cup.

From what I have seen, Season Tickets go on sale 3rd December I think for people who had them last year, then there is what, normally about a period of a month after that for season tickets, and then about a week or so after individual games go on sale.

Kick off times, I would imagine they keep them early, like the latest experiment, it's good for us if they do, as fans we get to see the football after too.

Definitely renewing my season tickets if only to see the Colts!

If not, the best bet is to either plan to spend at least a couple of hours in a pub or restaurant after the game, or walk to Richmond (about 20-30 mins from the stadium) and get on the tube.

I wonder if the NFL is actually aware of how dire the transport links are to Twickenham?
If they do the same as the Rugby World Cup it should be an improvement, I went to three games including the Eng v Wales match and was able to get back to East London in just over one hour, because there were hundreds of buses ferrying people to Richmond and Central London direct from Twickenham my advice would be get tickets in East or South stand for an early exit.

What part of "I was only going to go to 2 games anyway" can you not get your head around? If all 3 games had been Wembley games, I still wouldn't have gone to all 3. Not that I owe you an explanation, but you've made a point of it so: we will have our first baby just a few months before the 2016 games start. While I can probably get away with leaving Mrs EB alone all day for one Sunday, maybe two, there's no way I'm disappearing off for 3 Sundays out of 5, especially two weekends back to back. Hope this meets with your approval.

I wouldn't buy those tickets too soon EB. Trust me, that first baby is an absolute social situation killer; you'll be lucky if you know what day it is let alone making 2 Sundays out and about.
