NFL_Roger_Goodell_2013LONDON — Roger Goodell wants the NFL to return to Los Angeles and he wants to bring the league to Europe on a permanent basis.

In no particular order.

Speaking at a forum for European NFL fans Saturday on the eve of the 49ers-Jaguars game at Wembley Stadium, Goodell was asked by a fan about going back to L.A. and where it ranks on the league’s wish list compared to putting a team in London.

“It doesn’t matter,” Goodell said.

“I’d love to be back in Los Angeles,” Goodell said. “But it has to be done the right way, we have to do it successfully. …

“I want both (London and L.A.), but it doesn’t matter which one is first.”
