If we have any hope of ever getting an NBA team in this city at some point in the future, this game needs to sell out no matter which teams are playing. Even if people don't like basketball, an NBA team would give Montreal some credibility as a sports city. If Toronto can support an NBA team, there's no reason why Montreal can't.

If you're a sports fan, you should be rooting for this game to sell out as soon as possible.
I agree with this the more sports options the better. The fact that Montreal has downgraded to CFL status is shameful. In the 70s/80s the CFL wouldn't have matter... MTL lost a few CFL teams before.
