Most of the people I know that follow hockey don't cheer for the Leafs and I'm from Mississauga.
I'd also rather have bad beer leagues than no beer leagues at all, wouldn't you?
Like I said, because Toronto is quite the melting pot of cultures and there's more diversity in the sports being followed. People from other countries could have been following only soccer or only baseball or only basketball which takes away from the hockey town mentality.
I personally don't think Toronto is a hockey town but that's because of the huge diversity and availability in the choice of sports in Toronto. Trying to please too many people and in the end Toronto at it's core is a sports town.
