Goodell: NFL wants teams in L.A., London

The SportsXchange

Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday that the NFL wants teams in Los Angeles and London while speaking at a fan forum for Euro NFLers.

Goodell is in London where the San Francisco 49ers play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

But which city would he prefer get an NFL franchise first?

"It doesn't matter," Goodell said. "I'd love to be back in Los Angeles. But it has to be done the right way, we have to do it successfully. ...

"I want both, but it doesn't matter which one is first."

The NFL has been trying to land a team in Los Angeles since the Raiders went back to Oakland in 1995 and the league is playing a series of games in London to generate global interest in the sport.

"You are proving you are worthy of a franchise," Goodell said to the London fans.
