You act like it's two different sports because they rules are a little different. There's no CFLer's that have as much talent as top-end NFLer's and it's utterly absurd to think that way.
And it wouldn't be the Buffalo Bills, it would the Toronto whatever. Why is that so hard to get thru your head?
I'll say it again, It wouldn't be the Buffalo Bills, it would be the Toronto Bills or whatever. Huge difference. I hope I don't have to explain that to you again.
If the bolded is your criteria, then every city in Canada is a hockey city and every other sport is a distant 2nd.
Your 2nd paragraph is something that I've been saying it fine for a long time. I think I already said it in this thread in fact. I have no problem with people enjoying the CFL more than the NFL. I actually watch the Argos a bit myself. Just don't claim the talent's better.
Your 3rd paragraph is just more of the same. CFL isn't the NFL, Bills aren't a Toronto team. We're going in circles now.
Again, please post these lists of attendence. I'd love to see what other cities are in the dreaded bottom half. Your whole argument is just non-sensical. Should every team in the bottom half just fold. Miami Marlins have low attendence, should the Dolphins fold now?
LOL, at your 4 spots away from the bottom half comment. Their also 6 spots away from being top 5.
For all your typing here, you really brought nothing new to the argument. We know a stadium and ownership are issues but that's not what we're arguing about. We're talking about fan support which there'll be plenty of imo. Hard to prove, yes but those "silly numbers" you talk about aren't silly at all and are very relevant. Do you really think the 5th most populated city in Toronto can't support an NFL team?
Yeah, the stadium and ownership are wrinkles that need to be ironed out but they could come together rather easily. Plenty of examples of this in the past with other cities.
As for your bolded paragraph, if other cities can do it, what makes you think Toronto can't?
Don't use the Bils/CFL arguments either, they're pointless and irrelevant.
No, he really didn't.
Right now it would be failure, but when a stadium is built and ownership stable it would do just fine.
Explain the stadium issue. It's not easy to come by. They're not going to play at Skydome...are they?
