    If Green Bay and New Orleans can support Football so can Toronto, BC, Calgary, and Edmonton. I can even see the Saskatchewon and Winnipeg getting a team.
    Green Bay is unique since fans can own the team and it has been that way since the team was founded in the 1920s. I don't think the NFL would be willing to go down that path. New Orleans has some energy companies head quartered there and is one of the major offshore oil drilling cities so that town can support a team. Not only there needs to be population in the area but there also needs to be serious money.

    But I'd love to see a NFL team in Canada if that could happen.

    There's noway NFL will ever merge with the CFL. The NFL is already a successful multi-billion doller year business it doesn't need the CFL

    Thats pretty much it. They operate just fine on their own. There wouldn't be much benefit to the NFL taking on a couple Canadian teams and there wouldn't be much benefit for the majority of Canadian fans in destroying a countrywide league so that Toronto and Vancouver? could have an NFL team.

    This thread was started 6 years ago when I first joined up and people keep coming in here and bringing it back.

    Would love to see an NFL team in Canada. Vancouver is one of my favorite places, so I could see either them or Toronto. Doubt it will ever happen though. Just doesn't make sense for a variety of reasons


    Cameron Jordan is awesome

    say it like "If GB and NO can support..." it makes it seem

    I personally would be all for a merger, but I'm extremely
    atypical in that sentiment, I know.
    Thank you

    Pros: The CFL would be a better league

    Cons: Like 3 CFL players would make the league

    I really hope this doesnt happen. as a Canadian I love the CFL and I would like to see it thrive independently. And I think the NFL is happy with their own deal

    The CFL will do just fine. Just cause its not popular here in T.O. doesn't mean the rest of Canada isn't behind the CFL. The NFL has no need or desire to come to Canada, and we don't need them here. They have better cities to put a team than Toronto where we can't even sell out 50,000 for an NFL game. We had to discount tickets just to get people in.
