This is how legends are born.

1.  Hates Toronto series

From 97 Rock this morning (by way of Tim GrahamThe Buffalo News):

“I think that Toronto series has turned into pretty much a joke,” Wood said. “I think they started it hoping that we’d have a lot of fan support in Toronto. We have none.

“I mean, it’s a crucial third down for them in the first quarter, and they’re running just regular snap count, where I don’t care if we have a half-filled Ralph Wilson Stadium, they don’t do that.”

“You’re making a team from out west travel, and then you give them the comfort of a dome, and you don’t make them play in our stadium,” Wood said. “We have no home-field advantage allowed. We travel, too. I just think it’s a joke.

“And it’s a bad atmosphere for football. I mean, nobody wants to play there. I guess for opposing teams it beats the hell out of going in somebody else’s stadium and dealing with a bunch of crowd noise.

“I don’t think it’s turned out the way we wanted, and I hope we don’t renew it. That sucked.”

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you Eric Wood for being the voice of reason from within the organization! I’m so happy he came out & said what everyone else (who isn’t financially benefiting from the Toronto games) is thinking. Next time you’re in the Falls look me up. First round’s on me…
