Jaguars most likely to move to London - LaCanfora's "cite"[edit]

Jason LaCanfora's assertion that the Jaguars are most likely to move to London is an opinion piece, and an not be supported. Unless Wikipedia is becoming a repository for rumors, it doesn't belong.

WP:RS and WP:NEWSORG - News sources often contain both factual content and opinion content. "News reporting" from well-established news outlets is generally considered to be reliable for statements of fact (though even the most reputable reporting sometimes contains errors). News reporting from less-established outlets is generally considered less reliable for statements of fact. Editorial commentary, analysis and opinion pieces, whether written by the editors of the publication (editorials) or outside authors (op-eds) are reliable primary sources for statements attributed to that editor or author, but are rarely reliable for statements of fact. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.157.244.189 (talk) 19:30, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

The Mexico City Game[edit]

I feel this article is somewhat misleading in including the Mexico City game as part of the NFL International Series proper. Although conceptually it may be similar in being a regular season game outside of the USA, it would not appear to be part of the same corporate initiative they are developing in London with the International Series. It is certainly worth a mention in the article, but I don't feel it should be included in the official list of International Series games at the end. The match-day branding at each of the IS Games has stressed the game number quite prominently (i.e. 2011 was "Game 5") and this clearly does not include Mexico City. That game should be filed away on its own, or as part of a larger article including the Buffalo Bills games played in Toronto. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.194.30.210 (talk) 20:36, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Based on the list provided by the NFL, it appears you are correct. I'll go ahead and remove it. TDL (talk) 05:55, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
This boxscore for today's game from the NFL clearly labels the 8th game in London the "International Series Game 8". If it is only the 8th game, the Mexico City game can't possibly be part of this series. I've moved the content to List of National Football League games played outside the United States where it is more appropriate. Are there any reliable sources that claim that it is?

Also http://www.nfl.com/international does not list the 2005 Mexico game as part of the International Series. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:21, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
http://nflcommunications.com/2013/10/24/2014-international-series-games-confirmed does not either. Zzyzx11 (talk) 04:32, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Ditto for [1]. Aside from the list, it explicitly says "London's Wembley Stadium has been the site for every International Series game played thus far." Looks like it is case closed. TDL (talk) 04:53, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
