The day that none of us have been waiting for since 2007 seems likely to be confirmed any moment now (if it hasn’t already by time you read this). BMO Field, Canada’s first “soccer specific” stadium will soon be downgraded to a “soccer first” stadium and then, sometime in the summer of 2016, a “kinda, maybe, sorta also soccer stadium” once the Toronto Argonauts are gleefully invited in by all or some portion of MLSE. Toronto FC fans will react in different levels of horror but not to worry, your fears will be soothed with these PR gems which will surely be gracing an official website near you…

11. “BMO FIELD – WHERE TWO SECOND CLASS FOOTBALL LEAGUES COME OUT TO PLAY!”

10. “NOW WE’RE JUST LIKE THE WHITECAPS… WITHOUT THAT PESKY WINNING”

9. “CHRIS KONOPKA – TORONTO’S BO JACKSON!”

8. “MIDDLE-AGED WHITE DUDE DEMOGRAPHIC SOWED UP”

7. “MLSE SUCCESFULLY TRIPLES OSHAWA-TO-EXHIBITION GO TRAIN RIDERSHIP!”

6. “PINSTRIPED SOCCER PITCHES ARE SO SLIMMING!”

5. “TFC TO HOUSE GROUP OF LOCAL HOMELESS MEN”

4. “HYBRID TURF SAVES YOU MONEY ON RISING FUEL COSTS!”

3. “THE ARGOS – LONDON’S TORONTO CFL CLUB”

2. “YOU SAID YOU WANTED PLAYOFF FOOTBALL – WE DELIVERED!”

1. “OH JUST SHUT UP AND GIVE US MONEY FOR WINTER CLASSIC TICKETS.”

  3. I am an Avid Argo and Soccer fan. But the venom coming from some TFC fans is just over the top. You ridicule a league that has a mandatory Canadian ratio! What is wrong with people that call themselves Canadian or Torontonains and would sit and dump on our team with our guys. Andre Dury (Toronto) James Yurichuk (Toronto) and Jermaine Gabriel ( Toronto) Matt Black (Toronto) to name a few.
