Bills fans are No. 9 in the 32-team NFL when it comes to tailgating excellence, according to one ranking. As such, they are incredulous that there are no T.O. parking lots that will allow any form of regular tailgating, with open containers, grilled vittles, lawn chairs, etc. Toronto the Good taken to the extreme.
“As for corporate involvement with the age-old art of tailgating, it’s like sponsoring sex in the hot tub. Some things are meant to be spontaneous. Tailgating is one of them. This is something Bills fans have right.”
• Allan Ryan, also of the Star, says the Argos want nothing to do with the game.
