You're a fan of football and the Lions happen to be the team that is here.

Everyone knows if the NFL ever expanded to either to Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver it would be the death of the CFL.

I agree with this, If the NFL did come to one of the big three CFL teams, it would absolutely kill the CFL.

Maybe not right away, but eventually the hype train would win out.

You bring in a NFL team and it's a different story.

You could care less about the CFL, so you come in here and go on and on about how great the NFL is. In a BC Lions thread. Right...

I'm not arguing with what you're saying. I'm a huge Steelers fan. But time and place dude. It would be the same thing if I went into the Whitecaps thread and said "it's MLS, I could care less, it's boring, it's not the EPL" etc.

Man, don't even feed the fire. That guy is a troll and does this stuff in almost every thread he ever posts in. He's not a quality member of this forum. CFL rules in Vancouver, always has and always will.

Again

A.) It's Buffalo it's not a Toronto team
B.) BC Place is a way better facility that oozes potential. Why build a 54,500 stadium if you aren't going to use it's full capacity unless it's the Grey Cup?

Can that plan include Elimimian and Arceneaux getting cut and reporting back here?

I have trolled every thread? HA. Good one buddy. This is the first time I have ever brought this up.

Troll trying to troll a troll or is that too complex for you to follow?

Difference is the EPL is a european league, while the KHL is a european league. The NFL is a NA league there's a huge difference.

Why settle for less when there is a bigger potential for another major franchise sport in this city?

Definitely. Pricing plays a huge factor into a major league sports team. Do you really think NFL games in the states would cost $350 for upper bowl seats? You'd be dreaming!

If priced right it could. Not $350 for a ridiculous upper bowl seat.

There are a lot more Seahawk fans that reside in Vancouver that one would believe just like how there are a lot more Canuck fans that reside in Seattle. It would be foolish to think otherwise.

Honestly? I like watching Canadians. We have some great football players up here, and if the NFL were to take over, Canadians would have no place to play. It's not the glitziest or the most glamorous, but I live by the cliche that it's "our" league.

So what you're saying that because that football is more predominantly an American sport that Canadians wouldn't be able to compete? Well that's rather baffling when you consider how well the American programs have developed hockey players into players in the NHL. Naive to say that they haven't done a damn good job.

You think it would completely eliminate Canadians in the sport rather than help improve the development in the sport?
