Those other sports may be in Toronto but they take a huge back seat to the Leafs for obvious reasons. Now you can blame the owner for putting out a ****** product, ect. Again, you get to speak with your wallet. You said you attended a game last year so does that put you in the same category as the rest of the "idiot sheep"? You paid what you considered an excessive price for a 300 ticket. Why?
Toronto's just a good example of why, w/ a dedicated fanbase, interest trumps results re audience. The Leafs haven't won big in 45 yrs - and no indication they'll win big any time soon. but they have a huge and obsessed fanbase who will watch the product w/o blinking.
so - it's easy for the leafs to constantly jack up prices...b/c the audience isn't going anywhere.
That doesn't make them "sheep" - in fact, i think there's something to be said about watching a team through good times and bad.
...for all the negative things ppl say about Leafs fans, you'd never accuse anyone of being a "bandwagon" fan
