Thread: Steelers playing the Vikings in London in 2013

    Steelers playing the Vikings in London in 2013

    This per Ed Bouchette and Jamison Hensely via Twitter. They'll be the "road" team, so don't worry about losing a home game.

    It definitely bothers me less that we are the visiting team.


    It still sucks though!

    The league was too short-sighted regarding using the bye week to help soften the impact of a too-quick Sunday-to-Thursday turnaround for an extra night of primetime TV all season long...hopefully they will learn their lesson and at least schedule the bye around mandated international travel.

    Also, wasn't Dan Rooney trying to work something out to have us playing at Croke Park in Dublin in the near future? Why schedule us at Wembley in London now if that may be just around the bend as well?

    Rooneys note they had a particular family member pushing for a game in Ireland. Commish believes build London fanbase better w/2 games there

    Goodell doesn't like the Rooney's or the Steelers.

    maybe if Ta'amu is still on the team he can drive the team bus while they're in London.

    after all, Ta'amu has experience driving on the left hand side of the road...

    I hate these games. Major distraction in the midst of the regular season.

    Why? It's just another game. Maybe the travel is a little longer, but it doesn't need to be a distraction...
