sadargo fan, come on, Toronto or Buffalo? You know the NFL would rather be in Toronto than Buffalo but that being said, they do respect history and tradition and Ralph Wilson, the CFL as well etc. There are a lot of factors. Buffalo is no where near the image type of city that the NFL wants compared with Toronto, nor is it as large, not nearly as cosmopolitan. Don't get me wrong, Buffalo is nice but it's just a slightly larger version of Hamilton really in terms of it's image and business interests. Neither can compete with Toronto in that respect.
Also in some ways I'd love for Toronto to get a real nice expensive huge football stadium and an NFL team to elevate the sport even higher in Canada. Sounds weird doesn't it but I want football to succeed in Toronto and getting the most popular football league in the world to Toronto would be great. I think the CFL can do quite well with this and feed off of this even if it might mean no team in Toronto. Last thing I want is for Toronto to build a nice baseball stadium and no nice football stadium. Of course it would be great if the Argos could be that team in a close to half a billion dollars or more stadium but I don't think that can happen.
If the CHL can be successful with poorly attended teams in the Toronto area that few care about, the CFL can succeed as well.
Maybe the CFL could try and purchase the Bills when they go on sale if the renos and lease don't work out in Buffalo and move them to Toronto. Sounds like a weird idea and I dont think it will happen but it could have some merit. Call me crazy, I know. Using the Bills and NFL to help promote the CFL and all of football in Canada is an idea and having control over this, the NFL in Canada, would be interesting even though I know many will say my logic is all messed up.
