FORD MENTIONS BMO AS POTENTIAL CFL HOME

- July 18th, 2012

TORONTO MAYOR ROB FORD TO INSIDE THE CFL RECENTLY:

“I think we need a stadium, a venue. Rogers Center with 55,000 seats is going to be pretty hard to fill (for the Argos.) The Grey Cup is sold out, but hopefully we can get a stadium.

“The obvious question became, if the Argos leave Rogers Center, where will they play?

“There’s a number of questions. We have Downsview, we have Woodbine, so we have locations to build a new stadium, or, we retrofit BMO Field, and make it like McGill Stadium in Montreal, a 25,000-seat stadium. We can do it, obviously the partners have to work together to do it.”

    Or you can just piss right off and get your own stadium. I’m so sick of this bs. I’ve been a TFC season ticket holder since day 1 so I’ve paid my dues. The last thing I need to see are these morons coming in and ruining the field. What a sad lot.

    They may as well kiss TFC goodbye if they do this. Soccer specific stadium, always has been, always will be.
