The Buffalo Bills are coming to Toronto.
The NFL has reached an agreement with the Bills that will allow them to play eight games -- five regular-season contests and three exhibitions -- in Toronto over the next five years.
Will games north of the border have any effect on the CFL? Would you go to an NFL game in Canada? Have your say in our forum.
A foothold in Toronto
I agree but I think them trading away there top prospects for several years and the team being 500 at best was more of a reason fans stayed away than the strike did. I agree the strike played a part no doubt about it, but after watching the Jays win back to back World Series and then struggle to play 500 ball is the bigger reason fans stopped going.

But, I'd rather have 2 World Championships and have an average or pretty bad team for years after than getting close and never winning.
At least we can remember the amazing 2 years.:)

It wasnt the strike so much as the Jays werent that good after trading away their future for rental players for the stretch drives and playoffs.
It was a steep price to pay for the 2 world series wins.

The lustre of the new domed stadium wore off around that time as well and instead of being the thing to do, it was just a baseball game. Only the real fans still attended.
Even if the Blue Jays were to win the World Series, I think they'd be hard pressed to sell out every game - or even half of them.

My comment was directed to Mike in Ottawa.

Look at the rough riders to lol. Ottawa are a bunch of fickle fans, unless its a championship contending team every year the fans wont support them. Not sure which fans are worse, Ottawa for not supporting teams that struggle or Maple Leaf fans that have supported a losing team for 41 years and counting.

Laff fans support a losing team and have for over 40 years lol.
Can you say SUCKERS ? lol
