TORONTO - There’s a lot that needs to be addressed in terms of allocating the necessary funds and finding the ideal location for the Argos to set up their football shop.

For now and for the foreseeable future, they’ll have to muddle along and fly by the seat of their pants when Mother Nature throws a curve ball.

In a nutshell, the working environment surrounding the Argos, who won a Grey Cup in spite of the many headaches and decaying office conditions with their football operations, are a joke.

To be blunt, it’s an embarrassment, but an issue that seems to have no resolution in sight.

On Wednesday — the opening of rookie camp no less — the Argos were forced to vacate their temporary home in Mississauga and had to bus it to Oakville, where a nearby construction site would provide the perfect metaphor to describe the team’s state, at least when it comes to a home practice facility.
