SHARING IS CARING? In Toronto, Kurtis Larson noted with the CFL Toronto Argonauts "all but certain to move away from the Rogers Centre when their current lease agreement runs out," MLS Toronto FC's BMO Field is "once again being floated as an option." The fact that "at least one Toronto City councillor is floating the idea is of massive concern to MLS fans in this soccer-mad city." The grass pitch at BMO is "close to 40 yards shorter than a CFL field, meaning the north and south stands would need to be cleared out and pushed back to accommodate a field of that size." Sideline seats also would likely "need to be moved back to accommodate the CFL's massive sidelines" (TORONTO SUN, 7/29).
