The Buffalo Bills have taken mostly a politically correct approach in talking about their yearly "home game" at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

After the Bills were drummed 50-17 Sunday north of the border by the Seattle Seahawks, one Buffalo player,  center Eric Wood, decided to ditch the politically correct stance and give his true opinion on the matter.

"I think that Toronto series has turned into pretty much a joke," Wood said told 97 Rock in an interview picked up by the Buffalo News. "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-filed Ralph Wilson Stadium, they don't do that."

The Bills are 1-4 all-time in Toronto, and Wood doesn't like the atmosphere in the Rogers Centre whatsoever.

"You're making a team from out west travel, and then you give them the comfort 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 they way we wanted, and I hope we don't renew it. That sucked."
