MLSE Reportedly Eyeing CFL Argonauts With Goal Of Bringing NFL Team To Toronto
Published September 4, 2013
EVERYBODY LOVES A WINNER? In Toronto, Damien Cox wrote Argonauts fans have responded to the team's Grey Cup championship last year "by staying away in droves this season." The Argos in their last four home games "have averaged less than 20,000 customers, a combination, undoubtedly, of many factors including an inability to secure consistent and appealing home dates from Rogers, which owns the dome but gives the Blue Jays preference." The team has "played on a Friday, a Thursday, a Tuesday, a Sunday, a Friday again and now a Tuesday again." The CFL "remains a very tough sell in this market" (THESTAR.com, 8/30).
