NFL teams should follow this and see how it goes. If it limits drunken fans at games and it's only slightly more expensive than bringing your own beer in, fans might be fine with the switch.

Argos as franchise have no where to go but up.  If the team on the field can't bring us in, maybe creating a social buzz of an outing will.  

Frankly, this is smart. As a huge TFC fan who was not thrilled to find out that the Argos are moving into BMO (the whole removal of grass thing) I think this plays right to that community.

No, not just the beer. The idea of getting together pregame with friends who share a same interest is what i'm leaning towards when I make this statement. It's a whole event, not just "going to the game". 

 

Well done Argos.

I am very, very excited for the Argos this season. BMO looks spectacular, tailgating should be a ton of fun, and we have the Grey Cup in November -- which the Boatmen have a respectable shot at. I've already snagged a three-game flex pack and, by the looks of it, so have many other fans. Good riddance, Rogers Centre!

TSN gets my tv rating only because curious how it looks at BMO.  Cheap tickets for a Jays game still less than Argos- that's a problem for me when I just wanna sit & toss a few back live.

Mind you, tickets cost more for a football game because there are only about 1/10th as many played. I understand why there's a difference. Baseball is a game; football is an EVENT, especially now that tailgating is happening.

Vidal Hazelton - the answer to a trivia question now. The first Argonauts player to catch a TD pass at BMO Field.

BC Lions have got to burn their new look.  Atrocious.

Tonight's Stamps-Lions matchup is worthy of worst looking matchup of all time.  F'n Calgary & their black helmets.

Well, the visuals notwithstanding, BC eeked out a win in their first game over the Stamps, 20-18. I'd call that a fairly encouraging start for BC.

I'm fine with the home helmet for BC, but it's weird that there's no sideline gear with that logo on it.

Yeah, I think TSN has the classic Lions logo for its visuals also.

 

From best helmet, hands down, to worst.

Is there a reason why the Argos are playing at BMO this season? I thought they always played at the Rogers Center.

 

Oh, and I thought it was weird as hell to see the Stampeders in black lids. The Lions in black made sense and looked good, but Calgary didn't.

The Argos, starting with the 2016 season, have moved into BMO permanently.

 

Jays didnt want them and wanted a dirt infield and all grass, but only got the first

I think their lease/deal ran out & Rogers said get out by '16.  They would've been homeless this season if not for MLSE(?) & BMO Field.

 

BMO should work out for them fine, I think them being underdogs in TFC's stadium gives them a bit of charm.  Much more than sticking a new stadium in Downsview Park with little fan support... they'd be crucified.
