So I guess New York isn't a good sports town either if the Toronto Blue Jays were breaking consecutive season attendance records well before the self-proclaimed "mecca of baseball" even came close to matching theirs?

Also, wasn't the Yankees overall attendance down this season?? Hmmmmm...

And up until last year, The Raptors have always maintained a top 15 attendance since their inaugural season in 1995. Not great..but far from the bad sports town like you think it is.

So the demographics changed. Big deal. Maybe people just aren't interested or the Argos need to market better. Or do you base being a good sports on just the CFL, which is ridiculous. Time for Toronto CFL fans to stop whining and recruit fans rather hen denigrate things that have more $$$$. You must be a hispter from NYC.

It's about more then support. Toronto is average. It's not great, it's also not nearly as bad as llb is saying.
