Three new teams would please me especially as the other three coming back are all teams I like - good selection that
Well we have been reliably informed that no one went to the games this year by some on here

But I could only assume a game had been dropped if then had trouble fitting the games into the schedule of teams and the stadiums...

Article said "two others" rather than "the other two" so looks like they've left a bit of wiggle room. If true I've been correct so far on all 6 teams coming over and two fixtures, but had Chargers and Titans in different games. Other two "leaked" games ticked all the boxes.

Disappointing and seems like a step backwards, I wonder what the thinking behind this is?

Well if I want to put a positive hat on, I'd say perhaps they are hedging their bets against a late completion of the stadium. They could always announce a week 3 or week 4 game at a later date if they are confident in the stadium being ready. The WHL contract is for two games after all.

In 2015 it was reported that Tottenham were to host a MINIMUM of 2 games a season for 10 years. Now the first year comes up and they only have one.

Added to the fact that there are fewer games in London overall - the NFL have a strange idea of how to grow the market by having less of a presence!

They have said they will make up for that lost game in future years
