Remember a few years ago, when the Seahawks were supposed to play a preseason game in China as part of the NFL’s attempt to promote the sport internationally? The game was canceled because logistics had not yet come together. Well, those plans are postponed permanently, according to PFT, per the Sports Business Journal.
I know this makes many in the Seahawks’ front office happy. I think they viewed it as being more of a pawn in the league’s attempt at global saturation, and while the experience would have been cool it does nothing logistically but hurt the team because of the arduous travel.
