The CFL fine if people like it but it simply doesn't work in Toronto because Toronto is one of the biggest metropolitan area's in North America (coming in behind just Mexico City, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago) and as such people here like and support sports teams and leagues which they consider to be the big stage of sports. If Toronto had an NFL team, it'd be sold out every week.
The CFL is what it is, a boutique little league. It's not arrogant or conceded for residents of Toronto to not be interested in the CFL. It simply doesn't fit this market.
As someone who's lived in the Toronto area all of my life, I've never thought less of people in other cities in Canada who like the CFL, I just know it isn't for me. I don't go watch the Toronto Marlies play either but I understand why people in towns like Sault Ste Marie or London or Barrie like second-tier regional hockey teams.
Love how a thread about baseball turns into a pissing contest about the CFL. We really need the season to start.
I love everyone and every sport.
Plus we could potentially give the Rogers Centre to the NFL team and move the Jays to a ballpark possible facing the skyline or the lake (I can dream right)
IMO, it would make more sense to turn the NFL into CFL than the other way around. I know they actually tried to do that at some point and it didn't work too well, probably cause the difference in field size.
Problem with CFL it has a longer history than the NFL does so a Canadian city going with NFL will be a stain on Canadian history.
