A game was played in the same province as the Eskimos, many many many many more miles and two provinces from Toronto.
The likelihood of Argo fans travelling that far are slim to nil, and much greater for those supporting their opponents.
Even though the stadium announcer shouted the AAAAARRRRGOS chant over the PA, I heard a lot more cheering for the team of the green and yellow. It was reminiscent of the Bills series at Skydome, including the ridiculous attendance.
And it was a HOME game for the blew team??
I think the league should have made this a home game for the Alberta franchise or waited for one of the Calgary / Edmonton encounters or another WESTERN opponent. Perhaps, then, they would have gotten better attendance.
At the very least, schedule it at a neutral site, that's more equal in mileage and inconvenience for BOTH teams.
If they had planned this for the Tiger cats, I would be pissed!!!
Who thinks this stuff up???
