    I don't think its a bad idea, football is much more popular in Mexico than one may think. Bringing in 2 teams that are struggling in attendance could be a good risk IMO. There was an exhibition game in Mexico City in the 2001 preseason w/ the Raiders & the Cowboys. That seemed to do real well.™

    The Broncos would never do that. They sell out their games here.

    On the other hand, the Cardinals dont. I see why the league wants to do this. When we played there in an America Bowl, it WAS a sell out.

    I guess they figure all those people are moving north anyway, why not try to make them into Cardinal fans. joke people, joke!!

    LMAO! But I don't think this would really be good for the Cardinals, who down in Mexico cares about football, and especially the Cardinals? Hmm, I don't care, as long as the Broncos arent stupid and do that, this news doesn't have any interest to me.

    Report: Cardinals may play regular-season NFL game in Mexico vs 49ers

    March 15, 2005
    NEW YORK (AP) -- The first NFL regular-season game outside the United States is expected to take place Oct. 2, when the Arizona Cardinals face San Francisco in Mexico City.

    The game is expected to be a Sunday night contest televised by ESPN. It would be a home game for the Cardinals, who rarely sell out their stadium but could draw 100,000 or more in Mexico City.

    ``We're working on it but it's not finalized yet,'' NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday.

    Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference that a regular-season game outside the U.S. was likely this year.

    Michael Bidwill, Cardinals vice president and general counsel, declined to discuss specifics but told The Arizona Republic that playing such a game is ``very unique and appealing prospect.''

    ``It would be a historic and unprecedented event,'' Bidwill said.
