Default Potential trip to London

So, how do we all feel about a potential trip to Wembley for the Red Birds?

As much as I love to see the Cardinals play, no matter the venue, I'm not sure we should undertake such a long trip.

I don't buy into the tiring long trip nonsense, so I see no issue with it.

"Ooo no, I've to sit on a plane for a few hours, 5 days before a game, and then again after the game, 13 days before my next game, its too much, its too much."

Id rather play Oakland in London than in Oakland, so I think it can only be a good thing for the team. I wouldn't want us to lose a home game, for the simple reason we then have more chance of losing.

Don't think they'd ever give up a home game given how they all "sell out" but, as an away team, can easily be done. Schedule them an east coast game the week before, fly over after it and then fly back once they've beaten the Raiders.

I'd be over the moon if they do come over.

I travel to AZ once a year and I do find the trip tiring, even on a non-stopper. I know it isn't the same as these guys will travel often and in business class comfort, but I don't think the effect is zero - especially for players who have never left the US before.

That being said, if it were the Raiders game, both teams would be equally affected, so it is probably not so big a deal.

We game up a home game when we played in Mexico, but I think they was about marketing the team the a developing fan base, and the trip wasn't an issue.

The selfish part of me wants to see them and the 'win at all costs' part of me wants us not to travel
