    Ticket prices -- as expected -- are through the proverbial roof of the domed Rogers Centre for the Buffalo Bills' series of games in Toronto.....

    so if all those tickets go then how long before they consider a permanent move to Toronto?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re: Ticket prices for Bills' games in Toronto will be pricey

    I live in Toronto and i wont go for a couple reasons
    1.
    Id rather drive to buffalo (me and my friends usually stay in niagara falls the night before then go to Buffalo to watch a game)
    2.
    tickets are expensive as hell
    3. The Rogers Centre sucks for football

    i would go for sure if it were the vikes playing though

    A long time...

    1)
    It would kill the Argonauts' CFL franchise...which would mean a big hit to the CFL.
    2)
    This is a novelty.
    The Bills will make a lot of money from it.


    It would be cool to see a team in T.O. though.

    How would it kill the Argos? The seasons hardly even overlap, and it's not like an NFL team would actually play in the rogers centre.
    No way people would pass up an NFL franchise for a 2nd rate 3 down football team.

    That is exactly how it would kill the Argos.
    You called them a "2nd rate 3 down football team".
    A majority of people would agree with you, even though you really shouldn't compare the two leagues b/c they're different games.
    Also, their seasons would overlap for 2 full months (at least) plus the NFL preseason.

    Aside from some revenue sharing, this wouldn't be good for the Argos.

    or...do you mean that they're second rate in the CFL?

    if nfl was to go to toronto, they would need a new stadium for sure. rogers is a dump and already has bunch of stuff in there. i guess the argos could just get the new stadium (which they need, something smaller, but thats for another day).
    also, toronto is not much of a football city and agros do not get that much support as it is. and the bills and other teams in the area might lose some fans.
