re-ruff-Listen, even if the NFL came up here it won't be that great. All the good seats will be gobbled up by corporations and insiders. Outside of the ownership and the name, there will be no connnection to the city.
The team will be filled only with players whose wives and girlfriends let them play up here (it's soooo cold!!!!). And once there here, they'll be demanding to be traded to some american city after a few bad starts or an argument with the coach. The mediocre players who do stay (those without options) will be gone as soon as the season ends.The tourism dollar they bring to the city will probably be about the same as the Jays and Raptors.
There won't be any CFL team to kick around anymore so what would the CFL bashers do for fun. Of course that means no pro football in July and August but we, in southern Ontario can pride ourselves on having the only pro football team in Canada. Don't insult our intelligence by talking about shifting the Argos to Windsor or eleswhere, or that the CFL can co-exist in Toronto as Godfrey has suggested.
We won't have the Grey Cup, pitting two teams from different parts of OUR country against each other in one of the most exciting sporting events of the year, but we can watch the Superbowl. Maybe it will be the Jacksonville Jaguars taking on the Indianapolis Colts. Awesome!!
Can't wait for the halftime show with Justin Timberlake. I mean who wouldn't rather see Justin Timberlake than oh say ...Tragically Hip.
Face it, we in Canada have the best of both worlds, great CFL excitement and NFL football all around the dial. Plenty of border cities for those who want to see
the NFL live.
great post, :thup: imo nfl in toronto, will be a money sucking black hole :twisted:
