London Lands The Jaguars; NFL’s First Team Outside The USA
Watch out world the NFL intends to spread its rule worldwide. The first and surprising move is the Jacksonville Jaguars moving to London for the 2015 season. Jaguars plan to make the transition a bit slow and play half the 2014 home games in London with the other half in Jacksonville. Jaguar fans will get a last chance to watch their team play in Jacksonville before the big move. Jaguars will also no longer be keeping the name Jaguars. They will be known as the London Swans. The logo and new uniforms will be released to public view at the start of the 2015 season.
Many people may wonder how hard it will be for the players to have to live in London. The NFL plans to try to make it as easy as possible. They will provide rent for any player who does not wish to buy a home. London will also allow family members to live in London during the players contract session. If a player falls in love with the London area him and his family even have the option to become citizens of the United Kingdom. The NFL is not only hoping for players to be fine playing for London, but for them to want to play for London.
Maurice Jones-Drew, Running Back for the Jaguars was not pleased about the pending move. “Man, this sucks!” He stated in an interview totay. “I don’t want to have to learn a new language. What do they speak in London?”
With the news breaking out of London getting a new team. Parties have broken out all across the nation. Especially the streets of Landon where they plan to hold a big parade when the time comes to welcome home the Landon Swans. Don’t expect it to end here. If this turns out a success you can bet the NFL will be sending out teams to more areas across the globe. Sorry America but it looks like you may be sharing the NFL with the world.
