It’s time for the Buffalo Bills and Rogers to pull the plug on the Bills-in-Toronto series, dammit.
They gave it a good try, but it’s just not working.
Hey, I’m an NFL columnist based in Toronto and it brings me no joy to write this, but the series has been a failure for every party involved. Some would say an embarrassing failure.
It’s getting worse, too, and no one’s to blame. Certainly not Bills-in-Toronto executive director Greg Albrecht. Same goes for Bills president and CEO Russ Brandon and Albrecht’s counterpart on the Bills, vice-president for strategic planning Mary Owen.
Short of the Bills turning into a powerhouse next season, the series is simply not fixable in the short-term.
I thought the series would finally turn a corner this year. I thought wrong.
