    Lowering ticket prices? Fans with emotion? Tailgating?

    Its an overwhelming success for Ralphs bank account but other than that, not so much.

    Toronto record 1-4
    7 home ... 8 road ... 1 neutral site game per year puts team at a disadvantage
    Despite all these new Toronto fans they still can't sell out December games

    They won't open the roof because all the Canadian "fans" would complain about being cold.

    Hard to argue that playing outdoors is a home field advantage when our record at home in November and December over the past 7 years is abysmal.

    Start by lowering the ticket prices, and we need Toronto sports media to advertise the Bills more. Only station advertising the Bills decently is Sportsnet, but they have to since Rogers is buying the games. They got to push making Toronto be apart of the Bills team, maybe give them discount for games at the Ralph or something

    No, it's because the dome is physically unable to open at that time of year.

    Correct. It's not like rolling down your car windows. The retractable roof needs to be winterized. It wasn't designed to open and close in cold weather.

    The country that absolutely loves hockey and winter sport to death would complain about cold?

    If you hadn't already answered that question for yourself by day 2 of posting on here, you might have something wrong with you.

    You got to remember, the last game was bust for many reasons. The ticket prices, the time of year (Mid December), the fact it came 2 weeks after Grey Cup and the Argos played at home to a packed house. There was some burn out from that as well. The City had a huge Festival for 2 weeks prior to the Grey Cup game and the Bills game did not even raise an eyebrow that it was coming to town.

    Really?

    Last i checked, Canadians have no problem with the weather in the north, my friend.

    Maybe if Buffalo fans could support their team in the winter months at the Ralph, then the FO wouldnt have to keep having Toronto games due to poor and declining ticket sales from the Buffalo region.

    Thanks for playing though.
    Can you dig it?
