I don't sit silently back and scout them, as many people at Marlies games seem to do.
I do plan to hit a Marlies game next time I am in Toronto during the AHL season. I have a bit of an affinity for the team. Partially due to my love of the city of Toronto and partially due to their affiliation with the Reading Royals of the ECHL.
Eh, I don't think they would do well it Sauga or Brampton either. I think if they moved to London, Kitchener, Hamilton or one of those cities they would do better, but those teams already have successful teams in their area, so that wouldn't happen.
