The ARGOS deal at the ROGERS CENTRE killed any hope of the NFL coming to TORONTO…yet the TORONTO media refuses to write articles on that point and some people actually believe what… STEVE SIMMONS writes and what… THE FAN , says…loll…people have to let The STAR , the SUN , and… THE FAN… know about this by writting them letters.
The NFL doesn’t have NFL ex. games here any more as they do in TOKYO , and MEXICO every year…WHY IS THAT?..the last EX. GAMES here were big money losers with lowered ticket prices [ya! who pays only 50$ a ticket and 30$ Canadian for a , NFL game?]
For the last 2 games , BILLS fans were offered tickets the game because the first one [NEW ENGLAND and CLEVELAND] …was a disaster.
No one cared about NEW ENGLAND and Cleveland at that time, but BUFFALO was winning and had some fans here.
MARTY YORK , had a HEAD LINE in the GLOBE and MAIL, the DAY BEFORE tickets went on sale to the public… " NFL GAME A SELL OUT "
How is that possible.?
I don’t think so…loll…
GLOBAL T.V. …lied to it’s viewers on their SPORTS show saying that the first game [NEW ENGLAND and CLEVELAND] wasn’t sanctioned by the NFL…WHAT?
I remember seeing JIM BROWN and PAUL T. , trying to sell the sinking ship , on all the TORONTO SPORTS , programs.
MOSTLY… the NFL looks at the T.V. ratings of the CFL and other sports teams in that area where a new team would go?
THE CFL’S T.V. ratings during the regular season are 3 times higher than any NFL game…or RAPTORS game…even higher than , BLUE JAY games , NOW.
Look at the JAYS bad attendence and with the ARGO situation vastley improving , a RECORD for attendence in HAMILTON ,what is the point?
We can also add the VAN. GRIZZLES, MONTREAL EXPOS…ect…to that list.
Finally , why would we have CONTRACTS with the NFL if they wanted to put a team here. Why would they come when the Toronto media can’t even support their own football…they don’t respect that and think we are alittle nuts to hate our own culture so much.
REEBOK… has the same deal for CFL uniforms as they do , with the NFL and NBA.
