First of all a majority of the posts in this thread are completely ignorant.

Secondly the number one reason there is no NFL team in Toronto is:



Buffalo is a small market team and 10% to 15% of their stadium fans come from Southern Ontario. IF those fans had their own team, the Bills, a flagship AFL frnachise would be in even more dire straits then they already are.

The Bills moving to Toronto would be interesting. Toronto would be the fourth largest market if it was an American city so it could certainly support an NFL team.

its not about supporting the franchise within Canada... the problem is the NFL lose money on what they gain from TV ratings... because say there is a game between Miami and Toronto (instead of say Miami/Buffalo)... the NFL loses that buffalo crowd that would watch the game and the toronto crowd doesn't factor in as their national coverage will be from a different channel (could be from the same provider but the channel would be owned by someone else, different dollar value)... and the NFL runs on those tv ratings - so far that is the biggest complexity...

actually I was referring to your statement after the question you posed about the CFL (even though the answer had been posted earlier in the thread, but you did not bother to read or you are not capable to comprehend)...
