Let me see, this stadium, if it ever gets built which is now in the "on again" category with the CSA choosing the Downsview site, will be ready for summer 2007 for the FIFA U-20 championships. After that, they will be looking for new tenants. And it doesn't look like the Argos are really going to be consistently getting crowds any bigger than 28,000, at the most. And this year the Argos are in first place with an excellent team and even agains't the TiCats, their rivals, just 32,000! Not really that impressive. Imagine if the Argos have a losing season or two. And I understand the Argos first set of leases expires 2010 for the Rogers Centre.
My bet - you will see the Argos playing at this new stadium once their first set of leases is up at the Rogers Centre, even if it only has a 20,000 capacity. And this will be good, it will be better than going to the Rogers Centre for a game. It just seems that the Rogers Centre will never attract the really large fan base that the Argos should be getting.
