When you look at the rest of our sports teams...we have been crap for so long that IMO affected the way Torontonians look at sports. No longer is it a way to go and enjoy yourself, there's a huge negative cloud over all our teams.

Although the Argos have won our last 2 championships, you just aren't going to get 50,000 people going to a regular season game. No team in Canada does that, not even the Riders.

But back to my point, the sporting scene in Toronto has taken such a bad turn and the fans have taken such a beating that it has affected attendance numbers. All we ask is for a decent product and most of the time we don't. With the Argos Grey Cup win, and the huge trade by the Jays...with ownership showing the fan base that it will spend money, this should be a turning point for our city.
