Toronto already has a football team that gets no attention. There are rumblings of moving it.
We are hosting a preseason game between the Packers and the Raiders and it’s getting a lukewarm reception. I personally don’t think the NFL fits here.
I think the primary reason for the luke warm reception is the price for the tickets, I get the novelty but $340 for the last row in the stadium for a preseason game, it too much to ask. The vikings play that weekend preseaon as well and tickets start at $11, we could have a weekend away and go to a game with shopping. Plus it will be the same crappy food and unreasonable drink prices we get at the bomber games. They will end up offerinf deals like they ended up doing for the heritage classic a few years ago to fill the stands.I am curious on what the attendance will be. Packer fans are known for being faithful and hard-core, but with the travel distance and logistics involved and ticket prices to the game, I don't see it being well-attended.
We are Steelers fans and have travelled to a games in a few places, we actually used to have Vikings Season tickets as we enjoy NFL way more than CFL.
