Default Wembley?

Anyone going to Wembley?

Who are you supporting?

I'll be going to the official tailgate & then on to the game.

Wearing a Bengals top and Tampa Bay hat ( adopted team for the day) if anyone wants to say hello.

No, I have decided that until a division rival or the Bengals go to the game I won't be going again. I just sit there each year and feel weird as I just can't get up and cheers or be behind any of the teams.
I would rather save my money and go to Cincinnati. Things might change though if it were a playoff game and directly influenced the Bengals (if they were in the playoffs themselves) or if it were much later in the season and it depended on one of those teams losing to help the Bengals into the playoffs.
I've been to three of the International Games (I was in Cincinnati watching them play the Bears and Texans in 2009 when the game was on that year) but I simply can't justify to myself spending that sort of money including travel to watch two teams I have no vested interest in....

I'll be there supporting the Buccs. Wearing a Boise State jersey to the game and an Ocho jersey on the Saturday.

Wont be there myself this year. The hotel I usually book was full over that weekend plus the guy I go with cant make it this year and when I saw it was the Buccs again?............well that was the final nail in the coffin for me.

Like Bengalsman I 'm starting to get less and less interested in most other NFL teams unless its the Browns, Ravens or Steelers of course.

I mainly watch more College football these days anyway and of course the Bengals on Sunday night.

My worry is they'll start to send the Buccs every year in order to build up a following for one team as a tester for putting a franchise here. One owner has alegedly already stated that he'd prefer his franchise in London instead of where it is now

The Glazers anybody?

I'd say the lockout was one of the biggest factors of having the bucs over here again.

Just watched the bbc coverage and Roger Goodell, when interviewed in the Booth, did actually indicate that this is maybe the plan - to make the Buccs an International brand.

In some ways it does make sense - there is a link between Britain & Tampa (Florida vacations) - and a real partisan feel to a game would make it more authentic as a 'home' game.
Whether they could ever get to that point is highly debateable however.Too many fans here have their own,well-established, favourites already.

That said -enjoyed the game yesterday -felt that the crowd noise was coming in the right places (particularly as the game wore on). an all-round good show was put on.

The loss of a ground attack severely hindered the Buccs and I was a little disappointed in Freeman, but still a live game with 30 seconds to go was enough to keep even my son (1st full game ever watched) interested !
