Rams Gurley no fan of London trip


Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley isn’t impressed by London. Then again, who is?

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is saying what fans, many NFL watchers, and a few players have said, and that is to voice a negative, or at least lukewarm reaction to playing a regular season game in London.

“Terrible. They need to stop this, all this stuff. This London, this Mexico City stuff, it needs to stop.”

He’s preaching to the choir on this subject.

The Rams have become something of a regular ‘across the pond,’ of late. Los Angeles played the Giants there in 2016, play the Arizona Cardinals there In Week 7, and are slated for play there again in 2018 and 2019.

Fun, huh!

Worst for fans, is that it costs LA home games.

This season, the Rams are possibly in the mix for the NFC West, but will play a divisional game, one that would have been played in the Coliseum, 5,437 Miles away from home on Sunday.

You don’t think Sean McVay wouldn’t have liked a bit more routine while ramping up for Adrian Peterson and a new look Cardinals?

"“It’s cool playing over there, don’t get me wrong. Just more of the long week, messes up a bunch of people’s schedules. I’m pretty sure y’all [the media] wanna be in y’all bed right now, too. But naw, it’s all good. It’ll be love. The fans over there are great.”"

No Todd, it’s not all good.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is on, and has been on a mission to potentially expand to London. The league has been staging regular season games there priming both the locals here and there for the growing possibility of a franchise there.

Outside of if his office, it’s hard to find anyone who’s sees this a viable. But this ever time-deaf Commissioner seems “all in” on playing in London.

Time will tell.

The NFL has global aspirations, and the Los Angeles Rams are the latest feature in Week 7 to show it can be done.

Nonetheless, it’s clearly not a preferred destination in season for any NFL franchise where players are involved.

But it’s also a trip not ending anytime soon.
