Default Bills, Steelers to play preseason game in Toronto

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills will play a preseason game in Toronto this summer, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The game will be the first of eight preseason and regular season games the Bills will play in Canada's largest city, where the franchise is trying to expand its fan base. The Bills are also set to play a reguar-season game at Toronto's Rogers Centre in 2008.

The Bills received permission from the NFL this year to play five regular-season home games and three preseason games in Toronto over the next five seasons.

Sweeeet. I'm going to that one. BTW, Toronto is further south than Green Bay, Minneapolis and Seattle. Average high temp in Toronto is 83 degrees in August.

I'll be there smoking a Cuban Cigar, because they sell them legally there....

I live in Toronto area, out in the burbs.
Steeler Nation will be very well represented, and I am surprised they actually chose the Steelers as first opponent all be it preseason. Might be embarassing having as many Steeler fans attend as Bills fans.
August weather is very nice and Toronto has much the same weather as NY city all year, and besides the skydome is a retracable roof anyhow.

Meh, I wanted one of Buffalo's regular season games to be against Pittsburgh in Toronto. Exhibition = who cares. I will probably go as I only live 15 minutes outside T.O. Other wise, get lost Bills.

Plus, I hate this freaking stereotype that all of Canada is cold. Toronto is no colder than Pittsburgh. And like CanadianSteel stated, this an exhibition game in August people, not January. Weather will not be a factor as the roof will be closed if it rains.

The only problem will be tail gateing. Different laws up here in Canada. The other issue with Toronto is smog at this time of year. Hence, the dome maybe closed if the smog index is really high.

Isn't that the problem? Ahhhhh the tropics.

Anyway forget the weather. Are the tickets in US or Canadian dollars? This blasphemic factor will be more discouraging to those willing to brave the border rush. And since Canada already brews every brand of beer in the world barter for Iron City won't offset further greenback weakness.

Haven't been to Toronto in years but it is certainly one of the best cities in all of North America.

Ya, the weather will be fine. I'll be at this game. It'll give me an excuse to pick me up a couple cases of Molsen Brador ( best beer made)

When you said that the laws are different for tailgating what did you mean? No open containers? If you are caught peeing in the parking lot you flogged 40 times?
