The NFL and the Falcons don’t know where London, England is located
Can you spot the mistake?
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
This is the most American thing they could have possibly done: Insult not just a city, but an entire country before you even get there. How you gonna talk all big about playing a game in another country and y’all don’t even know where you going?
London is a World City. It ain’t some Podunk little city that no one knows about. The Queen lives there. How do you not know how to locate where the Queen lives? Y’all gon mess around with Queen Bess and have them redcoats back over here.
2014 has NOT been the NFL’s year. Players have been wilding out in their personal lives (domestic violence, drugs). The NFL acts like they don’t know how to (or don’t want to) deal with such incidents.
And now they don’t even know where to find England on a map? They don’t know the difference between England and Spain? All the proofreading and drafting that goes into making info graphics and nobody said, “Hole up. We have this arrow here pointing to Madrid and not London.” Sloppy. Just sloppy.
If I were the person getting those three planes together for the team and staff, I’d make sure they have everyone going to the right place. I’d hate to see the Falcons lose because they literally didn’t show up as opposed to their figurative absence from competition this season.
