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

The Bills if playing in Toronto would have a 2 million + fan base and also the golden horseshoe.
Its not about the fans, its about corporation support which isnt much in Buffalo.

Ralph Wilson has never said that he wants to move the team anywhere outside of Buffalo. Why are people jumping ahead of themselves assuming that he will?
He is only playing the suckers! He is only trying to drive the market up for the bidders.

Playing a regular season game in Toronto is the first step in showing the league Toronto will support an NFL team.
Toronto will be in the NFL in a few years. It is going to happen.
NBA and MLB came here so why wouldnt the NFL ?
Go Toronto NFL Go

Don't hold your breath! You'll turn two shades of blue. Hey, you'll look like an Argo fan! hehehe.
The NFL has been paying lip service to Toronto for years. They would rather put a 3rd team in New York or a 2nd team in Chicago or even go to Mexico City (the actual next biggest market)before putting a team in Toronto.

Relocation and expansion are 2 different things.
The league wants L.A. as an expansion team so they can soak them for as much as they can get. After L.A. Toronto is the biggest market available. The NFL will be in Toronto in the next few years.
