Comparing a football game in Toronto to one in SSK?  Talk about apples and orangutangs..  Argos can't draw flies, and the game was in the Dome...

On the radio they were talking about it and comparing it to when the Bills did their series in Toronto.

While getting an NFL preseason game is super cool and would do well in Sask, it's not even closely comparable to a regular season game. It's just a neat novelty.

How is it even remotely comparable? Huh

And really, why even attempt to make that comparison? The Bills Toronto Series was ultimately a disaster and then was cancelled.

The comparison really got ridiculous when the DJ (not sports radio) talked about how great the Toronto NFL experiment was  Cheesy

I wonder if this is the perception of the general population, though- that it's on the same level as a regular season NFL game. Good for a laugh if you're a football fan, but it's realistic that this may actually be the case

Was that before or after Trump tried to buy the Bills?

The Riders have said they don't want the game in Regina and the Bombers are exploring the possibility of the game being played in Winnipeg.

3DownNation has a few articles on the topic on their website.

Could be Edmonton or Calgary too... not sure why BC place isn't the first choice.  Capacity, roof... it has all the fixings...

Well, so much for that lame idea.
