The Sports Business Journal notes that the Patriots shuttered their China operation over the last few weeks as the NFL has "suspended indefinitely plans to play a preseason game in China."
The Patriots were supposed to play the Seahawks in a 2007 preseason game in China. When that announcement was made, it came with considerable hype, and was billed a countdown to the Beijing Olympics.
When the game was later postponed, there was discussion that it could be played in 2009.
Yet, as the Sports Business Journal reports, that will not happen.
