There is no question that the 2005 GREY CUP, will be a huge suc.....well done B.C. fans and other CFL fans.
When TORONTO held the GREY CUP the last time in 1992 , that period was in the CFL's dark days. THE JAYS were GODS AT THAT TIME , and the BILLS , were popular.
People would phone THE FAN and brag how they couldn't give their won GREY CUP, tickets away. If you were a CFL fan in TORONTO, it wasn't easy in those days.Daily reports about an NFL team coming to TORONTO, FROM THE Toronto SUN......ect....... :roll: DIDN'T HELP.I was ashamed of TORONTO ,AND THEIR SELFISHNESS regarding other CFL cities.
They just didn't care if the CFL FOLDED. :roll:
The other problem was who was playing in that game.CALGARY and WINNIPEG were seen as , 2 WESTERN teams.
Given all of that , 45,000+ wasn't that bad , for those times.
Even though FLUTIE was CALGARY'S , Q.B.
Things have changed allot.The ARGOS/HAMILTON season ticket base has grown allot.
Will it help if either TORONTO or HAMILTON ARE THERE?.......YES.......!
I feel confident that this ARGO team, now know how to promote an event like this one.
