Wait, why can't they play football on grass? I've heard it has been tried before.
"Turf" is a verb now?
What about their other tenant, the Buffalo Bills?
This move doesn't really make sense to me, but the Jays have been obsessed with playing on grass for years so it was probably inevitable.
Are the Bills the only team that plays games in Canada?
city isn't very into football (the Argos are the only CFL team losing money)
I'd argue the city isn't very into CFL football... I know many people who are NFL fans who have no time for the CFL.
Right now when the field changes from baseball to football (or vice versa) the seats down the first and third baselines move. If they change the surface to grass, they won't be able to move the seats.
OTOH, Candlestick had a grass field and seating sections that rolled atop it for a different sport's field configuration. So did Mile High, IIRC.
As a funny anecdote, during those many, many, many exhibition games when they would kindle hope that baseball would return to D.C. the seats had been deployed for so long in football configuration that they were essentially rusted in place, so they just didn't bother moving them for one or two lousy exhibition baseball games. When it became clear that the Expos were indeed moving to D.C. they had to move those seats the heck out of the way.
Buffalo is a pretty lousy town for the NFL (probably stretched too thin between the Sabres and Bills),
In just about any other sport, this would be me being a sarcastic jerk, but in the NFL, we're talking about multiple MVPs who have done time in the past ten years.
They freaking love the Bills.
