Agree alpha, as someone born and raised in the US,  he grew up with the NFL and obviously those memories are in his mind.  He can be excused but hopefully after one year with his new responsibilities with the Argos, he'll learn how many home games CFL teams play.  ;) 8)  And I see he knows what the Rough Riders are, ok not the Ottawa Rough Riders as was but still, the soccer version at least shows familiarity with an iconic sports name.  ;)

Manning brings a wealth of sports management experience to Toronto FC from his twenty-two year career in executive positions in the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles, the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets and Real Salt Lake of MLS.

Quote
A native of Massapequa, New York, Manning was a nationally-recognized collegiate soccer player at the University of Bridgeport where, as a sophomore, he helped the Purple Knights to a NCAA quarterfinal berth, and as a senior in 1986 he led his team to a final four appearance while earning first-team All-America honors. Manning continued his playing career after college and won a U.S. Open Cup with the Brooklyn Italians in 1991, and played professionally in the United Soccer League (USL) with the Penn-Jersey Spirit (1991), Valley Golden Eagles (1993) and New York Fever (1994-95). Manning also holds a U.S. Soccer National “A” Coaching License.

MLSE should use the Leafs to help Argos sell tickets the same way MLSE forces many Leafs season ticket holders to buy Raptors tickets.
No. No they really shouldn't. That would cause a lot more Toronto fans to dislike the Argos.

Is that possible?

* When in doubt, always ask (WWKD) What Would Kevin Do?
* Forgive me for always taking the High Road.  It's the ONLY Road I know.

Not possible!!!!! Argos have become the sweet hearts of the CFL. And why not!!!! Winners!!

Winners is a city where they seem to be not much cared for by many.  Sweethearts is an excellent description no question.

The majority of Leaf season ticket holders are corporations and businesses.   I had read somewhere that over 12k Leaf season tickets were "corporate".   The average Leaf ticket works out to $125!!
Not sure about MLSE forcing "many Leafs season ticket holder to buy Raptors tickets" ?   I haven't heard that.
There may be a package deal if you buy them too.
But maybe a deal with the Leafs/Raptors/TFC if you buy tickets you can also buy Argo tickets and vice versa.
  Exactly it's a just a deal for their MLSE customers they can get Argo season tickets or club seats or whatever at a huge discount and it sells some inventory .

 It's mostly corporate season ticket holders who else can afford them so I don't see any reason why they can't get a few MLSE current customers interested with some extremely good deals . 

Why not use the base of Leaf customers who have money to burn obviously to throw a little love to the Argos at an extremely good price .

According to David Naylor, Argos restructuration under MLSE makes some collateral damages, and senior director of communications Jamie Dykstra was sacked. He was in the CFL communications from 2005 to 2015 and was working for the Argonauts from april 2016 until now.

Sorry to here Argos restructuring under MLSE means senior director of communications @jamiedykstra has been let go. A good man, who knows and appreciates the CFL. Want to thank him and wish him the best. #Argos #CFL

Just hoping MLSE can light a fire under some fans, existing or otherwise.
