Please no regular season games in Toronto again. 1 preseason game would be good.

Its all about winning and becoming a brand people want to identify with.  That phony Toronto series was nothing but an unshared revenue grab, and a dress rehearsal for Ted Rogers to move the Bills to Toronto eventually.

 

 

I do think that once this team is relevant (now?)... they should absolutely play a preseason game(s) in Montreal, Hamilton, Ottawa, and possibly Toronto.  When the Bills' number comes up for the international series, they should try to lean hard to play the game in Canada, preferably in Toronto or Montreal

Yes!!!  What a novel idea to get Canadian fans to come to more home games.  I don't think that has ever occurred in 60 years of Bills football.

If the bills consistently made the playoffs, even once every 3 years. They wouldn't have to worry about regionalizing the team.

It would sort of be automatic, right?

 

But I do think efforts toward Albany and Binghamton are important to win people over from the Giants/Jets/Patriots/Steelers/Eagles.

 

Canada, mostly the Golden Horseshoe, has a lot of population and even though a lot go to Bills games, it is largely untapped and there for the taking.  Most of the opposing fans we see at Bills games are Canadians.  If the Bills are a successful teams, those jerseys will convert to blue, white, and red, and more people will support the team (and that will include the GTA corporate community to a point).  

 

Montreal/Ottawa are ripe for the pickings.  I have friends there who love the Bills and going to games.  Our version of sports/fun on gamedays is right up their alley and perfect.

No, you are thinking of 2008.

I was at the game yesterday vs Washigton and the parking lots and tailgate was full of Canadian Bills fans. Impressive to see.

I’d never want to see us play home regular season games in Toronto.  I could care less if we play all of our pre-season games in Toronto.

I'm all for moving training camp & a preseason game to Toronto (sorry Rochester)
