Personal Apology to UK Readers
I am deeply sorry that the NFL has decided that people in the UK only deserve the worst possible games. Sending my hometown Lions to London is almost an international war crime. The biggest problem with US professional sports is that we lack anything like relegation. The Lions would belong in the Football League 2 and not the top level by now but the system is run for and by the owners who in the NFL still make money even with teams that are bad for generations. We now approach the 50th superbowl and the Lions are the only franchise in continuous existence over that time to have never played in one.
