I don't get the CBC's reporting the last two days. "There's about 50 protestors, and clearly they're in the minority", well no shit buddy. Take a look at ratings, and you'll see the NFL fans in Toronto, let alone Canada, are in the minority.
I would like to see the Argo's stay at Skydome, and the Bills go play at BMO field.
Also a challenge, with only one week of practice, a game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Buffalo Bills at Canadian rules (which by the way pre-date American rules, and predate the MLS for that guy who hates CFL cuz of BMO field, I don't want them there either but CFL unlike the MLS is the ECHL of Soccer, while the CFL is a completely different league which leads me to the following.) and lets see how much better they are then a half Canadian team, with a 20 second clock lined up 1 yard a part, longer field, wider field, 3 downs. If its even remotely close, considering the down-turn in salary it proves that had we supported the league more, espescially in the bigger markets like Montreal and BC, and Toronto over the years we'd definitely would have won.
It would also prove how different our rules are. Sure the NFL is the biggest sport in North America, but how many Canadians are proud of America, i mean really. They have nothing else, the only game that was made there thats a major sport in the US is Baseball and its full of steroids, and they have 300 million people versus our 30 million, the TV contracts alone allow them to kill our broadcasts and kill our revenues, it doesn't make them better. Its two different leagues. The NBA got ahead of the NHL on TV because all u need is a ball that bounces to play it, and its made by Canadians. NASCAR may have started there, but racing didn't as far as i know, i could be wrong. The NFL was a ripoff of Canadian rules, and they conformed them enough to make it different. There was a time when players would come and play in Canada, and for some reason people were so won over by the broadcasts, and media all over the CFL for poor coverage on CBC in the 80's.
John Candy, and Wayne Gretzky knew how important it was. The argo's can't go to BMO field either, its not big enough. Thats the one thing I do agree with that guy other than that he's way off. The CFL is not a joke of a league and a game would prove that.
I encourage people to join the Keep the NFL out of Canada group on Facebook, it has a pretty funny picture, I see it kind of like a joke, using an American against its own logo, like America using our own idea against us.
Those NFL fans in Toronto, i'd love to see their IQ levels, seriously. They know nothing of the history of the CFL, nor do they care. If it was up to them Toronto would become a part of New York State.
Toronto Argonauts vs Buffalo Bills, Canadian Rules. That or Saskatchewan Roughriders, or BC Lions. However high they figure Buffalo Bills are in favourite to win the Super Bowl should play the equal to win the Grey Cup (are you followin me) in the CFL. Canadian Rules Football, the original North American football rules, Canada rules. We don't need to bow to the Americans just because their players get paid more, it doesn't make them better at our game.
