10:13 AM ET 12.16 | The Bills In Toronto series has been a blip on the Toronto calendar, a one-day, so-what, annual intrusion that has failed from its original intentions. The Bills have made no footprint into Southern Ontario; Toronto remains an NFL-mad town, with interest spread right across the league. The one game a year remains an impossible sell, even with discounted tickets and promotional giveaways.

Canadians are discriminating fans who don't like Ryan Fitzpatrick either.

Maybe if the Bills put an NFL-caliber team out there, they would garner more attention.

This.

If the only game available to me all year was the Buffalo Bills, I wouldn't be running out to buy tickets either.

I'm not sure Willie. They play in To***to where they're pretty used to losers.

There are no thrills, watching the Buffalo Bills.

Joking right? You could put the worst team in the NFL in Toronto an they would still sell tickets. I mean the Jays haven't won a series since 92, still doing fine thank you, and the Maple Leafs? 45 years since they won the Cup and guess what? There's a huge waiting list for season tickets.

Didn't say they wouldn't buy tickets... only that they won't marry themselves to a team (like you and I to ours) with a QB who is, at the most charitable of descriptions, average.

Toronto fans see this annual intrusion by the Bills for what it is.
