    I think we knew the day would come when the NFL sees itself reaching max capacity in America. The question is if people get bored of seeing American teams visiting and demand their own teams? I honestly see the NFL having more success with branching out to untraditional markets then NHL has.

    Huh? Is there some other source of information other than the video because the video makes no mention of how many international games might be played or any mention of Canada whatsoever? And really, that series of videos is really just predictions of what might happen and not a plan for anything.

    What in your opinion went wrong with the NFL Europe league? People I know in those countries basically said it felt like a watered down version of NFL, and that they weren't playing "NFL teams"-but rather felt that the NFL just stuck a bunch of teams with NFL brand in Europe and thought that would be a fine substitute.

    This thread is misleading to point of being a lie.
    These aren't "plans". These are just some pie-in-the-sky videos the NFL made of what may, possibly, who knows?, happen by 2020.
    It's just a somewhat random collection of predictions, forecasts, and guesstimates.
    18 game seasons. Heads-up-displays in helmets. Teams in Europe. Openly gay players. LeBron James type players at QB.

    Pointless thread. These aren't plans. They just asked a handful of players and journalists to guess what the future might bring.

    I changed the title but I may just go ahead and close this as really too OT for BOH-- if it's just speculation and nothing concrete from the NFL itself.
