For the last five seasons, the Bills have ventured north of the border for a regular season contest in Toronto's Roger Centre. While it's been good for business -- ticket prices are higher than in Buffalo -- it's provided little to no advantage for the "home" team.
Some players, like veteran center Eric Wood, have grown utterly tired of the tradition.
“I think the Toronto series has turned into pretty much a joke,” center Eric Wood said, via the Toronto Star. “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.”
Last Sunday, the latest installment of the series ended with a familiar outcome. The Seahawks came to town and thrashed the Bills, 50-17. Buffalo is now 1-4 all-time in Toronto.
Continuing in his harsh criticism, Wood blasted the fans' support -- or lack thereof -- during the games.
