Lets say the pundits are right, and if the NFL comes to Toronot the CFL will die.
How will the hundreds of thousands of CFL fans throughout this coutnry react?
Will they all rally around Toronto's football team?
Or will the sport of football basically die a slow death, and become as insignificant as baseball or basketball? And will Toronto be hated even more by the rest of the coutnry?
I wonder how us CFL fans would react if the CFL did die, and we were left with no pro league to call our own?
Personally I think football in this conuntry would die with the CFL. The NFL would not create a boom in the game. Just like baseball and basketball have had very little impact.
I think there would be a huge hole in the Canadian sporting landscape. And we, even in Hogtown, would regret losing our national football league that has fans from coast to coast and is 100% Canadian owned.
It'll never happen, but like a comet hitting the earth, it doesn't hurt to speculate.
