    hilarious about LA. I bet the people that have sold their tickets at a cheaper rate are now screwed up because Beckham might play. THATS WHAT YOU GET FOR SUPPORTING A PLAYER AND NOT THE TEAM FUCKERS.

    Argos won't be coming to BMO Field, according to the Sun.
    I say we keep up the protest, just in case.

    Watters insisted the team is staying at Rogers Centre, despite speculation they one day will return to their CNE roots at an enlarged BMO facility.

    I'm not convinced. Keep up the protest indeed.
