Owners and management from all teams love it when the Riders come to town , we put bums in seats and I'm sorry that you have to put out a request to get fans to your home eastern final , but i'm afraid this will be like a home game for our Riders.
If you try to set aside your hatred for this thing called RiderNation, you MIGHT begin to comprehend that the Riders participation in the east final now makes it very financially successful event. That's kinda important. You know, this 'greater cause' term you may have heard once or twice?
Or maybe you could spend some of that boundless hatin' energy on getting some of those in YOUR market to step it up? CFL rivalry is fun, not the opposite which you valiantly try to portray. Sell it man!
I guess what I'm saying is that you suck at selling the CFL - but you excel in trying to crap on it. It's so bizarre that you are upset that a team has a committed and intense fan base that follows their team around.
I wonder if the problem with Toronto is that so much of the population is immigrant (46%) and more into soccer and the likes, sports that are popular in their old home country, while football is an old North American sport?
From a chart I just found 45% of the 46% of immigrants are from India, which is cricket land.
I've thought that as a possibility too, however a large portion of immigrants rapidly embraced the NFL and NHL - seemingly because that's what the locals do. If the CFL was embraced more by Canadians in TO, I believe that the immigrant market would follow that too.
I have wondered why the team does not have kiosks set up at Union Station and a few other high traffic areas throughout the city to sell tickets?
Maybe the Pinner can be at Union with his wonderful personality that for sure would sell more than a few ducats.
It’s cute that you think that. Meanwhile, prior to the Riders even winning against the RedBlacks, the Argos had already sold over 17,000 for the game. It’s funny how Rider fans think they sell out every stadium, yet couldn’t even sell out every game for their own stadium this year lol.
