With the recent talks of moving the Super Bowl overseas and moving season games into other countries I have just a slight problem with that. Being a Denver fan in Tennessee let me explain. I am sure some of you can relate to my frustration.

Being a Denver fan and living in Tennessee I don't get much of a chance to see my Broncos play. How often is it that Denver plays someone near enough to me that I actually can go watch them? Not too often.

Not all states have teams so I'm sure fans from those locations have a team in mind they would like to watch. Using myself as an example if Denver and Tennessee were supposed to play in my home state and that game got moved overseas you can see how angry I would be. Anyone else feel where I'm coming from?

I understand you're trying to expand the market, but lets not forget not all fans in the states get to watch their team play either.

Moving the Super Bowl overseas are you kidding me?

This isn't like a UFC event that you get to see every month this is once a year, and the biggest sports event of the year. If Denver was to go to the Super Bowl and it was near I would work my butt off to try and get enough money together to sit in the nose bleed section just so I could experience it.

I am sure there are more passionate fans out there like me that feel the same way.
