Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you 1. Jesus Christ, 2.The American G.I., One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
Moreover, Hawaiian, you are absolutely right that Dan Rooney would be proud to have his team play in Ireland. If the players don't like it -- tough. That is the way the world works. If my employer needs me to do something, I do it, whether I like it or not. For most people who have a boss and value their employment, it is pretty much the same.
Why do we NEED to play in Ireland? Is the NFL going to expand there? No.
How does this HELP the NFL? Is the NFL in danger of going under if they don't play there? No.
This game isn't needed at all. All it does, is disrupt your own teams preparation for a game.
It's sweet that you feel sorry for the professional football players because they might have to play a game in Ireland because their boss wants them too...
Heck, a few years ago, you would have said, "If they don't like playing in Ireland? Cut them!"
Even Crash can change...
