49ers_John_York_2013 [1]Commissioner Roger Goodell finally has said he wants the NFL to put a team in London. But the NFL still isn’t unanimous about whether it’s a good idea.

According to HJ Mai of SportsBusiness Global, 49ers co-chair John York acknowledged that placing an NFL team in London would be “sort of a shot in the dark.”

“We don’t know that there’s enough support for a team playing eight regular season games and two preseason games in London,” York said. “But we do know that we can play two and sell them out very quickly and have a lot of fan interest and growing interest.”
