This year’s Super Bowl in New York is already drawing criticism from the media over the NFL holding the ‘Big Game’ in a cold-weather city where the potential for freezing temperatures and snow could alter the championship game for the first time in Super Bowl history.

But if you think that idea is a bad one, what would you think about the NFL holding the Super Bowl in London which as New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch may not be far off.

Roger Goodell has been a lightning rod for criticism during his reign as NFL Commissioner, but holding the Super Bowl in London would generate the biggest outcry from NFL fans, media and likely numerous players around the league.

It’s one thing to have a regular season game overseas once a year to try and generate growth but this would be viewed as going too far by Goodell has tossed around the idea of an 18-game regular season schedule and expanded playoffs.
