Now I am not for the whole “Bills in Toronto” thing, but how many of you live in Toronto?
The only thing Rogers really dropped the ball on was charging too much for the most expensive seats, especially for a pre-season game. But all of the upper-level seats sold-out a long time ago, so the fan interest is there.
But it terms of the other events surrounding the game, I think it has been pretty good, bringing in old Steelers and Bills to meet fans, free concerts, media hype, advertising, and parties all over town.
The bottom line is corporate sponsors love the NFL, as do most casual sports fans because of the atmosphere surrounding the games.
I have a favourite NFL team, do all of you? I bet most people in Canada do as well. You can hate it all you want, but it’s not going away any time soon.
And yes, Oskee Wee Wee!
ps. I am not a Bills or Steelers fan.
