If any Toronto team should be worried if the Bills arrive, it's should be Blue Jays not the Argos.
The Argos are a mom & pop operation, which mainly relies on tickets sales to individuals and families. While the Jays, like an NFL team in Toronto, cater to the business exec's and their customers. A large portion of the Jay's tickets are used for promotional purposes by large corporations. The Jays, who had been losing up to $50 million every year, relies on these corporate purchases for their very existence...the very same market the NFL will be going after. And frankly the Jays pale in comparison to the NFL, which gets going in earnest in July, right in the heart of the baseball season, and will dominate the sports pages and talk shows through their season.
Can the Jays afford to lose 10%, 20% or 30% or their corporate clients and still be a viable operation? Will Rogers continue to be happy losing that much coin every season? And with the NFL coming, facing even bigger losses?? And what about the Jays' corporate sponsorships and TV revenue, which will largley be scooped by an NFL team's lustre?.
In comparison the 150-yr-old Argos have a solid base of fans who buy tickets every year, but their national corporate and TV revenue is only a miniscule portion of their income, and they could probably weather an NFL storm in Toronto much better than other Toronto teams.
