Let's calm down, Lulay and the lions will be fine.

They will win another grey cup, and all will be fine and dandy

That was with the Bills and their crap stadium? BC Place is a world class facility where as the building looks like absolute **** in Toronto.

I would love to see a NFL team here...we need another major sports team next to the Canucks...I don't watch or follow soccer to care about it enough but the NFL seems like something a lot more people do care about over the CFL.

CFL = Old school football fans
NFL = Younger generation who enjoy the atmosphere of the game etc etc.
i just like the CFL game better..i have been to a few NFL games (seattle/denver/NE/san fran) and my view it is a boring game....numerous whistles and TV timeouts...I frankly got bored by the game..having said that a full house adds to the atmosphere...no question...i just think the NFL game is dull...

Very true, but 1 player does not make a team.

Especially considering how stacked we were last year

Yet too small for the NFL.

Enjoy Century Link. Get to the border early.

Those other cities are not major markets that have nothing next to NHL teams to cheer for. I'm pretty sure if you brought a Seahawks game here it would be sold out easily.

U can see there is no respect by the opposing team to throw or run it up the middle.

59,000 + is not to small for the NFL...that's the average size.

I have no doubt buono will bring in somebody that will make this team "fit" and certainly make it better.

He always does that, and now that's his main role as GM.

We gotta find the holes first, before we can fill them.

That was one of the most clean F bombs I have ever heard on live TV.

Absolutely perfect timing by TSN

Difference is NFL much more tactical and the speed of the game is a lot quicker. Think of a NFL team's fan being as passionate as a Canadian hockey market.

You'd follow it a lot more closely if we had a team. It's a better game once you follow a team. That's how I felt when I watched the NFL to begin with as well.

There's a reason why the SuperBowl is one of the most watched sports championships on both sides of the border.

It's 54,000 at BC Place, and you need a minimum of 60,000 for the NFL.

Furthermore, why are you coming in here basically trolling us CFL fans?

I wasn't aware that discussion was trolling. If you can't discuss than suck it up and leave princess.

it was my impression that the NFL game was an event...yeah...more tactical, but that it is my issue with the game...CFL game more wide open...

no right or wrong...just dont like the NFL game...would i watch NFL more if in Vancouver? i guess, but i just wouldnt care as much..Im a Lions fan....
