There has been evidence found regarding MLSE and Rogers together have spent effort trying to destroy the image of the CFL in southern ontario dating back to 2007. The plan was to ruin the brand of Argos football in S.ontario and then eventually place a mole within the organization to ruin the team. Then MLSE would step in and either relocate the team or fold the team due to franchise stability issues and then approach the NFL for an expansion franchise. In the files MLSE reps were quoted as saying the NFL told them they would never expand to Toronto or any Canadian city with the CFL in its presence. And that it is important for the NFL for a strong CFL league in Canada coast to coast. A quote also mentions if there was no CFL then the NFL would consider.
Evidence has been brought to the attention of a prominent media personnel in Canada. Was told the list is long of the things they have done. Some of the items listed
-Used the Argos to get gov't funding for BMO field expansion and then go 50/50 as tenant but Argos get zero visibility around stadium. Seats are red, zero argo signage,etc
-Rogers had agreement with TFC and Blue Jays to schedule games to hurt Argos scheduling and agreed to force the sell of marketing only to TFC and Blue Jays during Argos season that would not include game recaps during most watched time of tv sport segments.
-Paid employees to bad mouth the CFL. Names included Bob McCown, Damian Cox, and Arash Madani.
-Trick Argos corporate sponsors into agreements with Raptors, Blue Jays, TFC and leaving Argos very little $$
i assumed nothing is illegal in these findings however was told it is illegal under CRTC law as it now involves TSN (bell). This could be a massive media story that could end of destroying Rogers credibility and it would be possible a major lawsuit.
