No.

As for Vancouver not being a hockey town, that's laughable given that the Canucks games on their regional TV broadcast average about 400,000 per game. No American team comes even close to that and Canucks do better than the Leafs and Canadiens on a per capital basis.
I thought this arguement was over.

No there is not a big four in Canada. There is the big 5. The CFL which gets the highest ratings of all. You happy now? But TSN, Sportsnet and even the CBC use this term. Yet GHOST says otherwise so it should not exist

We were have a discussion with a guy who criticized Seattle as not being able to support the NHL because they lost the NBA. I thought that was rubbish. My point was support the NHL would be easier, and yet Vancouver has an attendance drop due the Grizzles and bad play.

Maybe you should get some context and read the entire thread before coming to start a fight with me. I live in a different part of the country than you do and many of us have different favorites and likes, and shock, not all of them are Canadian Sports.
