I don't know.
I wouldn't think that the CFL would put up with it.
Yeah, there's something about 1918 that doesn't mesh well with sports.
The Bills are in a small market. So are the Green Bay Packers.
The Pack for many years, has scheduled a game or three in Milwaukee, to expand their fan base.
I see nothing wrong with the Bills doing the same with its close neighbor the much bigger, richer, and more cosmopolitan City of Toronto. As a way of expanding their base of fans, this is a well proven technique. Plus it would likely prevent a lawsuit from the Canadian Football League over usurpation of its territory, with only a few games a year.
The Pack will not leave Green Bay for Milwaukee full time, and the Bears might well object if they ever did try to do so.
I hope it works out, and the Bills can remain with the fans of upper New York instead of being sold and moved else where.
Did you read the part about "partnership"? I read into that as saying, we step aside, you pay us royalties to keep the league afloat. Make up for lost revenues from the Argos and Ti-Cats.
If they move, I would rather see them move to another city in the U.S. If they do move to Toronto, what keeps every other team from moving? I couldn't get used to saying the "England Patriots" that's just wrong.
Not at all.
the commish is worried about putting teams in toronto but cant figure out a way so the fans can watch existing teams play without nfl network.
Here is the CFL Commish's response. Not much there, but there is an emphasis on keeping all the teams around. So, how do you achieve that and have an NFL team? I have no idea
I would welcome it. It would be a cheap flight to watch my Pats!!
