I know that there are many complaints about Rogers Centre for footall which is understandable but for baseball the only thing that is missing would be a natural Grass field.
From a baseball side the Blue Jays are not alone in playing still in a multi purpose stadium and these stadiums do not have a retractable roof.
The Angels and the A's both play in originally built multi purpose.
From the NFL side we still have the Raiders and even with all of there success the 49ers have still played at the old Camdlstick park a beaseball first stadium in which the baseball Giants has gotten a new baseball specific stadium and the 49er will finally be getting one soon.
Going into a second tier sport DC United continues to play at the Old JFK stadium.
The Montreal Alouettes still play playoff games at Olympic stadium for playoff games.
Although the Argos and its football fans would like to have a CFL specific stadium they are lucky to have the Rogers Centre there for a home field at all and a retractable roof to boot. I am sure that the players do not mind playing for the Argos for this reason as well as having modern Locker rooms to use. Could it be that the Tiger Cats have had trouble having sucess with players who may be choosing not to play in the much outdated stadium over the past decade.
Rogers Centre is still a quality facility especially for baseball and the poor atmosphere has to do more with the lack of fans than the venue itself.
For the Argos I get it as the CFL has evolved into a more MLS model with smaller Canadian specific football stadiums leaving a now oversized venue to play in but for games of any kind there is very little problems with atmosphere when the venue is packed.
So the Argos will ride it out do to the lack of funding for a CFL specific stadium not there. When the Jays go to grass and put a winner on the fieled there will be those who will complain but with a full house it will be just fine. Also with a retractable roof I am quite sure that the players and the fans will be very grateful should the Jays enter post season and possibly the World Series.
site lines or no site site lines be grateful for such a venue that still many cities in all kinds of sports would be more than happy to have as their home venue.
Even when the day comes for the Argos to need to move due to grass at Rogers Centre the CFL will still be able to use Rogers Centre for Grey Cups with baseball season over by that point with the ability to move seating into place for a single football game. I mean Yankee Stadium hosts the Pinstripe Bowl as part of the NCAA bowl games.
Finally, the fact the Rogers was able to purchase the venue from the City of Toronto for a bag of beans is a big reason why the Jays have been able to survive in Toronto or they may have gone the way of the Expos.
