TORONTO - The Reds gained a point, but lost a forefather Wednesday night.

Out of protest, his seats in section 225 sat empty, according to those in the vicinity.

Former Toronto mayor David Miller, the driving force behind building BMO Field, announced he has relinquished his season tickets for Toronto FC’s final three games.

The equivalent of Mayor Rob Ford walking out on his beloved Toronto Argonauts, Miller’s sentiment was shared.

That or he owns a lot of season seats as evidenced by the paltry 15,217 that braved a brief weather scare to watch the Reds play to a 1-1 stalemate with the visiting Chicago Fire.

“I am so frustrated with the latest management missteps that I am returning the remainder of my season tickets to you,” Miller wrote in an open letter. “It is the only way I can emphasize how serious the situation is for those of us who support TFC.”
