    From what I understand the game won't be in Wembley, but the other stadium I believe. A winnable game, and I can justify the game with a "vacation" Im intrigued.
    What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?
    I don't know and I don't care

          I'm just glad it's an away game for Denver. We still get our allotted home games actually at home

            Yes....this is what I keep thinking about. These international games favour the visitor, because home field is not exactly the same thing when you are playing elsewhere. If I had my way, we'd always be the visitor in those games.

              Us fans that live in Atlanta always show up! 16 years between games is a joke!

                I’m fairly certain the Broncos can only be the visiting team in these games, at least until they go to 17 games. I think their agreement for the stadium requires them to play 8 home regular season games at the stadium. I could be wrong though.
                My Opinion isn’t determined by what the Popular Opinion is. Sometimes I agree with the Majority, Sometimes I Don’t. If My Opinion is Different than Yours, I have to Ask One Question:

                    Think he means 16 years since the Broncos played in Atlanta last. Maybe?

                      I know we’ve played there since Matt Ryan has been there. Spencer Larsen led the team in tackles that day.

                        he means that since we only play NFC teams every 4 years, 1 home and 1 away, so we play in ATL every 8 years. Since the game in ATL is moved to London it will have been 16 years between games by the time we play there again in 8 years.

                        edit: I'm only painfully aware of this because I live in Charlotte and it's been 8 years since the broncos played here and won with Peyton. Looking forward to going to the Panthers game this year after a long wait! Glad it wasn't the Charlotte game that is moving to London.

                          That makes sense, thank you.

                            This will be one fun away game to attend. I am excited to travel to London AND watch the Broncos. Heck, even catch an Premier League game the same weekend.

                              Not me necessarily, I have booked flights to Denver in October in the hope they'll be playing stateside, had my holidays allocated for then so had no choice! Fingers crossed it works out that I can see both games!
                              Come On You Blues! GO BRONCOS!
