It's a logistical nightmare!! First of all, some of these players that have had trouble with the law, owe child support or a number of other criminal activities could be denied a passport.
Then there is the issue of physically getting there, getting the equipment and everything else there aside from the players. The cost of living is evidentally more than NYC...big downside with the players and moving their family there. Financially, they wouldn't be able to fly to the states, play in San Francisco, fly back to London, play a game and then come back and play a game somewhere else...
The OTA schedule would be a mess, the training camp schedule would be a mess.
The idea that some Europeans don't like the idea of American values forced on them and could have a negative affect on the game and then let's be honest, the London Monarchs couldn't hold fans and folded.
The whole idea makes zero sense. The league is looking at it as another money grabbing idea...
