Strange crowd responses in Toronto
TORONTO -- The Buffalo Bills are getting booed at their "home" game.
True rooting interests at the Rogers Centre might not be accurately demonstrated until somebody scores a touchdown here Sunday, but the Miami Dolphins have been cheered more heartily during pregame warm-ups.
The Bills were booed when they emerged from the tunnel and were booed again when they returned to their locker room.
A scan of the crowd shows a healthy amount of aqua wardrobe.
"This will be a Bills crowd," Adrian Montgomery, the Rogers Communications general manager and chief organizer for the event, told me Wednesday. "I suspect there will be a number of Miami Dolphins fans. I can't estimate how many, but the Bills will have 12 men on the field."
A source with knowledge of the box office claimed roughly 2,000 tickets were sold in Buffalo. The Rogers Centre holds a little more than 50,000 for Sunday's event.
The game has been declared a sellout for TV purposes, but tickets still were available at BillsinToronto.com on Sunday morning.
