(Newser) – The Bills have announced that they intend to play pre-season games and at least one regular-season match in nearby Toronto as early as 2009. The move, intended to capture more of the Toronto market, may presage an eventual move, which the team denies. Buffalo has yet to secure approval from the NFL and local and county officials.

The Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts have been mulling an NFL expansion team, and this incursion would prove a setback to them. "The NFL and its owners have to think long and hard about whether they endorse this and how it will affect our Canadian game," said the CFL commissioner.
