He was an Argo: Peter Martin

(July 22, 2024) The association is saddened to learm of the passing of Peter Martin, who played linebacker with the Argos for 7 seasons in the 1970s before a long career as a radio analyst on the Argo broadcasts from 1977 until 2010. He was also a longtime president of the Argo Alumni Association.

Martin graduated from Western University to become a teacher at Port Credit Secondary School, and an Argo — first with the East York Argos in 1964, where they won the Canadian Senior Championship and then to the Argos where they did not win much at all during his career, playing in the 1971 Grey Cup game, where they lost to the Calgary Stampeders.

In 1977, Martin started doing colour commentary on the Toronto Argonaut radio broadcasts where he worked on four different stations with his colourful anecdotes and descriptions of the Toronto Argonaut goings on.

Peter Martin was inducted into the media section of the Canadian Football of Fame and Museum in 2000. Earlier this year, Peter was elected as an All-Time Argo is the builder category.

Visitation will be held at the Glen Oaks Funeral Home at 3164 Ninth Line in Oakville on Tueday, July 30 from 4-8 pm. A celebration of life may be held later this year.

The Argos of 1906

(April 3, 2023) This CFL season will be the 150th season for the Toronto Argonauts.

The Argonauts date all the way back to 1873 and will celebrate the team’s great history in 2023 all season long.

Founded in 1873, the team is the oldest existing professional sports team in North America still using its original name, as well as the oldest-surviving team in both the modern-day CFL and East Division. 

The team’s origins date back to a modified version of rugby football that emerged in North America in the latter half of the 19th century.  September 1873, the Argonaut Rowing Club formed the Argonaut Rugby Football Club to keep rowers in shape during bad weather and played its first game against the University of Toronto on October 4, 1873.  Eventually sold to a syndicate in 1957, but not before winning 10 Grey Cups.

 The Argos will have a lot to celebrate in 2023 as the reigning champions look to defend their Grey Cup title in the team’s 150th year and the team’s great history in 2023 all season long. We will be featuring a selection of notable events throughout the season on this site.

What a game!

The Toronto Argonauts edged the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 24-23 on Sunday, marking the team’s seventh straight Grey Cup victory in recent championship games. Henoc Muamba was named both Grey Cup MVP and Most Outstanding Canadian.
