The Buffalo Bills are set to call their play to bring American football north of the border today.
Details of the Bills' bid to play eight National Football League contests over the next five seasons at Rogers Centre are expected to be unveiled by club owner Ralph Wilson Jr. at a news conference in Toronto this morning.
Expected to attend is Ted Rogers, president and CEO of Rogers Communications Inc. (the central figure), along with Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment chairman Larry Tanenbaum, of the Rogers' Stadium Limited Partnership that is working with the Bills and Toronto Argonauts on the proposal.
But Canadian Football League commissioner Mark Cohon, who is reported to have brokered a deal that would have seen 5,000 tickets each offered to Argo and Ticat season ticket-holders on a priority basis, won't be there.
