London’s calling the Raiders again.

NFL UK on Thursday morning announced three 2018 games in London, including a matchup of the Raiders and Seahawks on Oct. 14. The teams will play at the home stadium of soccer team Tottenham Hotspur.

“The Raiders are a truly global brand and we look forward to hosting the first NFL game in Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a team statement.

It’s the Raiders’ fourth international game in five years. The Raiders lost 38-14 to the Dolphins at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2014. They’ve also played at Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium in each of the past two seasons, beating the Texans in 2016 and losing to the Patriots in 2017.

The Raiders were the designated “home” team in each of those games and will be giving up another home game this time.

NFL UK Press Release

Even I wouldn’t bicker over just the one game business, we’ll be lucky if the stadium is fully functional by August let alone ready to host retractable pitch high-jinkery come October.

Bald Weirdo said:

”The announcement of the first game of the NFL’s 2018 London Games to take place at our new home heralds the commencement of our 10-year partnership. This is one of the cornerstones of our vision for creating a world-class sports and leisure destination that will make Tottenham a hive of activity 365 days a year and drive the regeneration of one of the most deprived areas of London.”

If anyone wishes to convincingly substantiate this regeneration garbage then I suggest you come heavy as  leading Mafiosos are known to say.

The loosely sports themed shopping centre is GO!

    Just a guess, but it’s believed the structure of the TV deal may well change in future years, with companies such as Amazon and Facebook interested in securing the TV rights, meaning individual games being shown via PPV rather than annual subscriptions via Sky & BT. If forecast’s are true, the cost of the TV rights hasn’t reached it’s full potential yet, and could go considerably higher than they are now.
    That might be one reason for Enic to hold on to Spurs for now?

    Begs the question – if Amazon are successful, what happens to pre and post match analysis?

    • gloster1861 January 12, 2018 at 2:05 pm

      If Amazon get involved, Google will also. They are becoming bitter rivals. Google could create a YouTube Soccer Channel(s) just because they can.

    Don’t know much about NFL other tan its got big guys and lots of razzamatazz surrounding it and it seems Levy has put a big emphasis to have incorporated in Spurs future but can anyone tell me just how much will Enic ( or Spurs ha ha) actually make out of these one or two games a year ???

    • Harry Hotspur January 12, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      This was my point about Levy taking a dump on the NFL’s table in New York.

      These 2 games will not pay for the WD40 required to keep this fucking thing from glitching up.

      • legendary greavesy January 12, 2018 at 12:54 pm

        So would this be enics way of catching a long term deal with the brothers over the ocean for maybe one to buy them out at huge potential price ???

        • Harry Hotspur January 12, 2018 at 12:56 pm

          Good thought. That way we really could become a secondary attraction in our own home!

          You may be onto something there.

            • Harry Hotspur January 12, 2018 at 1:08 pm

              In fairness the Glazers and Fenway both back their managers with transfers ….but we would then be just a once a week attraction at a Leisure Complex.

  • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 12:36 pm

    How does the thinking that Levy/ENOC are in this for the long haul tally with the belief that they’re an investment company looking to make as much as possible from THFC.? I’m interested in when people think that their optimum exit point is, in terms of profit.

    • Aussie in Switzerland January 12, 2018 at 12:37 pm

      That my dear, is always dependent on what the buyer is willing to pay

      • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 12:41 pm

        Agre d, but what’s the calculation as to when the price will be highest, relative to the outstanding debt? On delivery of the stadium? When the 100s of millions have been repayed?

      • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 12:41 pm

        Agreed, but what’s the calculation as to when the price will be highest, relative to the outstanding debt? On delivery of the stadium? When the 100s of millions have been repayed?

        • Harry Hotspur January 12, 2018 at 12:51 pm

          We really ought to put this question in a time capsule

          • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 1:09 pm

            If they’re risk averse and the future is unpredictable (as your comment suggests), surely they would take whatever profit they could get sooner rather than later.

            • Harry Hotspur January 12, 2018 at 1:17 pm

              • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 1:23 pm

                No doubt and I agree. Just trying to figure out if that is at all realistic in the near future, that’s all.

            • Freund or Foe January 12, 2018 at 1:23 pm

              I don’t think there is an exit strategy Fanny. I don’t think he’ll leave unless us fans take a pitchfork to his head, or he gets to a point of world domination.

              • Not a Real Fan. January 12, 2018 at 1:24 pm

                An investment company without an exit strategy is not worthy of the name.

                • Freund or Foe January 12, 2018 at 1:25 pm

                  Correct.

                  https://www.theguardian.com/business/2003/mar/11/5

                  Have a look at this Fanny. An old article, but gives pretty good information regarding ENIC changing from an investment company, to Lewis/Levy’s “vision of creating a football-led global gambling and entertainment business.” Other ENIC investors were not into it, so Lewis and Levy bought them out to gain full control.

        • Caspurs♿️ January 12, 2018 at 1:01 pm

    Presumably it’s sensible to have the turf on the top deck as it will receive natural light to grow, and will only require artificial light on those occasions when it is rolled aside for the artificial surface to be used for NFL and music events (I assume).

  • Kwakspur January 12, 2018 at 4:42 am

    As Spurs we are not gonna go off & support Arse or Chelski anytime soon so why dont we all embrace change.
    If the extra revenue helps us compete we our rivals for players & title [post Levy] what is there to complain about.
    I’ve only hot in to NFL over the last few years & I for one can’t wait.

    No one has talked about this yet, but if your looking for something else to keep Kane with us a few more years [NFL] he loves it.
    He’ll prob ably get a free Box writen into his contract, ready for the NFL franchise in a few years.

    I also think he would love to become a kicker when he retires from footie.

    Every cloud….

    • Camus January 12, 2018 at 9:29 am

      So, in summary, the shopping centre and very occasional NFL matches will help us compete for players and the title – will they?

      ‘Post Levy’, you say? – I can’t see him moving on any time soon, can you?

      The very occasional NFL matches will keep Kane happy by filling the void if we win no trophies?

      Did I miss anything?

      • gloster1861 January 12, 2018 at 9:32 am

        Yes. After all, Kane can watch NFL games at Wembley. Having it at N17 isn’t going make an iota of difference.

    As far as the football side of this, as far as our fans are concerned they can relax. The NFL will have nothing to do with the soccer side,” Levy added.Freudian slip by the Chairman of our football…… sorry soccer club.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 January 12, 2018 at 2:24 am

      So why are they giving football as opposed to footie first choice on the turf position

      • Aussie in Switzerland January 12, 2018 at 6:35 am

        Gridiron players block view in lower seats, so that’s why the turf is on the one on top that moves

  • East Stand January 12, 2018 at 12:41 am

    Levy; “Everything we do with this stadium is for the benefit for the club”

    No shit? Who else’s benefit would it be for? Why does he even need to say something like that? Sends shivers up me spine that kin.d of statement..

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 January 12, 2018 at 12:51 am

      Question, question everything. It is the only way.

      • Hartley™ January 12, 2018 at 12:54 am

        Why?

        • Horndog 🇺🇸 January 12, 2018 at 1:05 am

          Why not? Funny Harts, in college a sociology prof put your question out as a question on an exam. Of course I spent several paragraphs giving some stupid inane answer that I can’t recall. Another guy answered his question with “ why not.” He received an A grade. So simple. As I also recall I received a lower grade for my ridiculous answer. Anyway as to ‘question everything’, I should but I don’t enough. I was being sarcastic. Maybe I should though, I have often asked myself that question.

          • Horndog 🇺🇸 January 12, 2018 at 1:12 am

            Actually it was a psychology class, not sociology. I question my memory at times.

      I will definitely watch the second episode to see how it goes. If it turns preachy and becomes about global warming that’ll be curtains. If it is about solar flares or similar, grea

      Yes indeed. Ken Jones of the Daily Mirror.

      • Hartley™ January 11, 2018 at 10:32 pm

        Did he say it or did he write it or did he say it and write it or did he dictate it to someone else and they wrote it or did he type it or did he say it and type it or did he dictate it to someone else and they typed it or was a word processor involved or shorthand and all that evil shit?

        • gloster1861 January 11, 2018 at 10:34 pm

          Yes.

            • gloster1861 January 11, 2018 at 10:38 pm

              As near as anyone knows, Jones said it to Burkinshaw as he was leaving WHL, and Keith agreed with the sentiment. So they both meant it.

              • Hartley™ January 11, 2018 at 10:43 pm

      You spelled excrement wrong!

    Isn’t it nice when you’ve lived just long enough to see all your worst nightmares come true?

    What, my boyhood village weirdo Adam Cloak defrosting from a Han Solo style carbonite casing on top of my wardrobe, and as hard as I try to run away, he won’t stop chasing me?

    • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 5:28 pm

      Not that I’m emotionally scarred by it in any way.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 11, 2018 at 5:35 pm

      That’s an unusual name. Works for a nightmare character. Terrifying😨

      • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 5:42 pm

        He used to suck in his saliva before he spoke. I’ll never forget that sound.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 11, 2018 at 5:50 pm

          *shudders*

          • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 5:58 pm

            Interesting fact- He lived a few doors away from Jamie Oliver’s nan.
            Ok, maybe not all that interesting.

              I fear for her safety.

              • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 6:11 pm

                I’m not sure if either of them are there anymore.

                • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 11, 2018 at 6:24 pm

                  True dat.

              Jamie Oliver cockney geezer and self appointed health minister

              • gloster1861 January 11, 2018 at 7:26 pm

                Also a self appointed pearly king who heavily exaggerates his mockney accent. I know the actress who played one of his ‘mates’ in some of his adverts.

              • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 7:54 pm

                Born and bred in Essex. Cockney with no ney.

  • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    So looking forward to having a real franchise team, The Haringey Regenerators. Maybe that’s why we bought Sissoko, he’d make a fine tight end. I don’t know what a tight end is or does, but I’m sure he’d excel.

    • AntSpurs January 11, 2018 at 5:16 pm

      Me too, I have a name to throw into the hat. N17 Fourskins or Steelers

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 11, 2018 at 5:39 pm

        Steelers is taken. Fourskins it is then. 🙋

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? January 11, 2018 at 5:17 pm

    I expect old Twickenham will be disappointed to miss out hosting on another game having received good feedback from the three games they had already hosted, but seems the NFL decided to reduce the slate of London games. Seems a bit odd that we’re only hosting one game instead of two. “The decision to cut back from four games to three in 2018 was made in part to ensure the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium is in order following its opening.” OK. Regardless I’ll do my best to secure cheese room tickets for the event so I can report back on the quality of the cheddar.

    On the purely sports side I sat fack The Raiders. I grew up in Seattle so I will root the Seahawks way.

    • Freund or Foe January 11, 2018 at 5:09 pm

      In that case, I will too.

    • MysteriousStranger January 11, 2018 at 5:09 pm

      I sat fack. Strong words!

      • Horndog 🇺🇸 January 11, 2018 at 7:03 pm

        I ‘say’ old chap. 😬

    • AntSpurs January 11, 2018 at 5:14 pm

      Those Seahawk’s know how to give a good ‘ole rooting (street slang for shagging)

  • Sid Trotter January 11, 2018 at 4:56 pm

    Levy says it will help regeneration

    “The scale of this project, we have created already over 1,000 jobs for the local community, opened supermarkets and schools and created housing. This stadium going to lead to a complete regeneration of this area so it is very significant.”

    Think he forgets to mention that it’s not 1,000 locals being employed for now and evermore, the supermarkets will replace the existing traders, and the housing will all be penthouse that no locals can afford.

    • gloster1861 January 11, 2018 at 6:58 pm

      He means complete social cleansing of the poor.

  • Sid Trotter January 11, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    3 NFL games in 2018! That’s 3 between August and December. I hope we have a lot of away games then as the wheels on the retractable pitch will no doubt lose a spoke or two

    • Harry Hotspur January 11, 2018 at 4:52 pm

      One at The Lane

  • Sid Trotter January 11, 2018 at 4:50 pm
