When the Bills lost an AFC East home game to a neutral field in Toronto, they were understandably upset about not having a home field advantage. Well, now they’re trying to find a way to get it back, signing a petition demanding officials in Toronto open the Rogers Centre’s retractable roof to better simulate the conditions at Orchard Park’s Ralph Wilson Stadium.

We believe how Toronto fans of the Bills must feel about the deal now that they’ve seen more of the fine print below where the
Devil NFL made them sign:
The BUFFALO NEWS has a piece today that is, for everyone outside of Western New York, a little amusing and perplexing.
The Bills’ octogenerian owner Ralph Wilson held a press conference yesterday to announce the club playing a series of games in Toronto beginning next season.
Of course, the News reports that all the Toronto media cared about at the presser was if the Bills would move there permanently. And Wilson didn’t exactly dismiss the prospect in his answers to the Canadian questioners. Read more…
