The Argos D Wants NOISE!!! But, Just The D

Hey Argos Empire!
 
I wanted to share an email I sent the Toronto Argos last month.  Y’see, as an Argos season ticket holder and fan of the game, there’s something that happens at Argos games that bothers me.  There are several ‘Noise Meter’ prompts on the jumbotron that’ll encourage more noise, one generic one and one for Booster Juice (btw, LOVE Booster Juice! Please come to Peterborough!).  There’s also giveaways in the stands for Bet365.net as well as Argos merchandise.  Neither of these things bother me.  I love free stuff.  I love crowd noise.
 
My problem, is the timing.

“What happened last night?”

A common refrain the morning after an evening of enjoying beverages of a sociable nature.  The lights are a little too bright, the noises a little too loud, everything hurts.

But, I’m referring to last night’s Toronto Argos game against the Roughriders.

The game itself was frustrating as an Argos fan.  Kory Sheets ran for 170+ on the ground (looked deadly every time he touched the ball), Darian Durant connected on two long TD pass-and-catch plays with Taj Smith (the second one was a perfect touch pass caught at full stride), and the Rider D (featuring the returning Grey Cup Outstanding Canadian Ricky Foley) stumped the Double Blue O for most of the night. What has me confused about last night was the crowd.
