I’m sure you’re all familiar with the ongoing rumours surrounding the Argonauts future, in particular, where they will play when their lease at the Skydome runs out in 2017? There are also question about who will buy the team from David Braley, with MLSE constantly being brought up as a potential owner.
The possibility of MLSE buying the franchise is becoming more realistic, especially with stories of the Argonauts potentially moving to BMO Field only intensifying. As you can imagine, this scenario has both exasperated and annoyed the Toronto FC faithful, who have set up a petition to try and stop this happening.
I’m going to be honest: I’m torn on this one. I support both teams and enjoy covering each of them. In my attempts to always remain objective, (except where Chris Bosh, Rudy Gay and Peyton Manning are concerned) I can genuinely appreciate both sides of the argument. I can understand why Toronto FC fans want to keep BMO Field as a soccer-specific stadium, but likewise, I’m worried that the Argonauts will end up homeless!
As such, given that I’m basically being gutless and sitting firmly on the fence, I’m going to leave it to you guys to decide. Tell us why you think the Argonauts should or should not be allowed to move to BMO Field. We’ll post the best comments below:
