TORONTO - Earlier this week, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, recently back from a trip to CFL hotbeds Winnipeg and Regina, mused about Toronto’s need for a new football stadium to house the Argonauts.

“That’s what you call football,” Ford said during a press conference, extolling the virtues of Investors Group Field and Bombers fans in the ‘Peg. “There (are) 35,000 fans dedicated to their team. I’m not saying we’re not. We need a football stadium in the city, bad.”

Ford, a massive football supporter, said he will do “everything possible” to bring a “made-for-football” stadium to Toronto.

While the Argos currently play at the Rogers Centre, the cavernous stadium is oft-knocked for its lack of a football atmosphere (except during the Grey Cup, when it is full) and Argonauts executive chairman and CEO Chris Rudge told the Toronto Sun the team could play elsewhere following the conclusion of its upcoming lease agreement.
