You would quickly forget about the CFL if the NFL moved here.
It's like Hamilton saying they don't want a NHL team because it would destroy the AHL team.

Obviously it's a little different because the CFL teams are not farm teams of the NHL, but the point still stands.

Mtl with a 60 000-80 000 stadium and a chance to see the best NFL athletes, absolutely.

Would be bad for the CFL, but it's an upgrade for the city and its people.
