Rogers Broaches Possibility Of More Bills Games In Toronto

Rogers Asking Fans For Reactions To Possibility
Of Three Additional Bills Games In Toronto
Rogers Communications is "asking fans for their reaction about the possibility of three additional Bills regular season games in Toronto -- one in each of the 2010, 2011, and 2012 seasons," according to Adam Benigni of WGRZ-NBC. Rogers in a message sent to fans said the company "has been listening to its Bills Fans and may be able to negotiate a new deal which will bring an additional Bills regular-season game to Toronto in each of 2010, 2011 and 2012! This now means that a quarter of the Bills home games could be played in Toronto." The Bills in a statement said the team is "aware that there is interest in expanding the Bills in Toronto Series by an additional regular season game in the future" (WGRZ.com, 3/22). ESPN.com's Tim Graham noted the message was part of a survey that was "e-mailed Friday to fans who purchased tickets" to last year's Dolphins-Bills game at the Rogers Centre. The survey, "conducted on behalf of Bills in Toronto organizers, suggests the intention to move two regular-season Bills games to the Rogers Centre." But the possibility of more games in Toronto "will not go over well among Bills fans." Graham: "Either event promoters are speaking out of turn and the Bills' front office will need to issue a denial, or Bills fans will be left to ponder that dreadful possibility they might be on the verge of losing even more of their beloved team" (ESPN.com, 3/21).
