The Toronto Argonauts are notable for being the oldest team in Canada or the United States of America to still retain its original name. They are also known for having the most Grey Cup wins (16) and for being tied with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the second most Grey Cup appearances (22), behind the Edmonton Eskimos(23).
The Toronto Argonauts were founded back in 1873 by the Toronto Argonaut Rowing Club. At the time the most renowned rowers in the world were the teams from Oxford University and Cambridge University in England, and the Toronto rowers adopted uniforms incorporating the two shades of blue used by the English schools. When the Argonauts expanded into football, the "double blue" uniform was used by the football team as well, starting the tradition that almost all top-level Toronto sport teams wear blue. The team is often nicknamed the "Boatmen".
The Toronto Argonauts were the dominant team in Canada in the early days of football. They put together a number of Grey Cup dynasties in the 1930's and 1940's. However after the 1952 season the drought started. The team struggled throughout much of the 50's, 60's and 70's despite having such greats as Joe Theismann, Tobin Rote, Joe Corrigall, Bill Symons and Jim Stillwagon. The best chance that the Argos had to break their drought was in 1971 when they faced the Calgary Stampeders in the Grey Cup. However, a late fumble by Leon "X-Ray" McQuay sealed a 14-11 Calgary victory.
In the 2005 season, the Toronto Argonauts had an average home attendance of 30,196, the first time in 13 seasons that they averaged more than 30,000 per game, and the first time since 1992 over 250,000 fans have seen the Argos play their 9 home games at the Rogers Centre. The team drew 44,211 for the Eastern Final (a 33-17 loss to the Montreal Alouettes) which was the largest Toronto Argonauts playoff crowd since 1991.
