Belichick in no rush to return to Mexico City for NFL game

Although the New England Patriots routed the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Bill Belichick doesn't want to return to Mexico City for a football game.

Belichick and the Patriots defeated the Raiders 33-8 at the legendary Stadio Azteca, but the coach would prefer to remain stateside, citing travel and rest concerns.

"Personally, I wouldn't be in any big rush to do it again," Belichick said Monday on WEEI via ESPN. "It's a long way to go for a game. There's a lot in terms of all the logistics of it. They are not used to having an NFL team, so you have to go in there and handle a lot of the logistics. It took a lot of manpower, a lot of hours, a lot of energy out of our organization to do that. We are exhausted from the trip."

Belichick commended his team for their preparation, but it's clear that he's not in favor of participating in any international games.

"We dealt with it. (The) players did a great job dealing with all the challenges we had to deal with. I think we're fortunate there was no volcano eruptions or earthquakes, or anything else while we were down there. You have two NFL franchises in an area that I don't know how stable the geological plates that were below us (were), but nothing happened, so that was good."

Although Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady certainly enjoyed their trip, it doesn't seem like Belichick will be volunteering his team for a repeat anytime soon.
