Looks like the A____'s are into this NFL/Bills thing with both feet. I heard on 680News tonight that owner Howard Sokolowski doesn't think there will be any threat to the CFL and does not think the NFL is coming to Canada. Or at least thats the way I heard the report.
Also the high priced ticket issue for the exhibition games and the money up front deal may not happen. Here's what is on canoe.ca:
"Specific details, such as ticket prices and the opponents Buffalo will play, were not immediately available. The NFL will dictate the teams the Bills will face in their Toronto games this year while the price for admission is expected to be formally decided in the next week or so.
However, Phil Lind, a member of the Toronto group looking to bring an NFL team here, said fans will have to purchase tickets to all eight games but won't have to pay for them up front. Published reports have suggested the median ticket price will be C$250 but Lind added there will be tickets available for less than $100 each.
All of the games will be played at Rogers Centre, which will have a seating capacity of between 51,000 and 53,000 for the Buffalo games."
So there it is. Any takers from this forum?
