Well I was going to say how much I admired the fans in Winnipeg for how rabid they are for a team that hasn't won a championship since before US expansion and how loud they are game in and game out for a team that has won but 5 home games in over 2 years. And I was going to say how much I admired Hamilton fans who continually packed 26 and 27k into Ivor Wynne to watch Jason Maas and Casey Printers go 2-16. Gee I'm so glad no one from those 2 teams has tried to start a pissing match of negativity towards another team's fan support ...
I've been to at least one game in every city in the country except Ottawa (and I hope to remedy that in the next couple of years too) and every time I meet amazing people.
It's a smaller group but you will not find better fans, genuine faithful and knowledgeable and welcoming, than in Toronto. The Argonotes, the Argoholics, there's a core of them that hang out across the street in the bar for 2 or 3 hours after the game and talk FOOTBALL.
Hamilton/Toronto have something terribly unique and awesome. They tailgate with each other. Many have seasons tickets to BOTH teams even though they love one and hate the other.
The best part about Grey Cup is that all the colors get together and mix. No, actually the best part is all the cheerleaders, but the SECOND BEST part is the color mixing thing.
I'm a Rider fan. I live in Vancouver. I've tailgated with Lions fans for the past 10 years. I wouldn't trade it for the world. This league rules because we have a great game and we have great fans everywhere.
