I understand we are talking about a Canadian market vs. a non-Canadian market but everything I said is true... unfortunately.
How much competition do the Leafs have for a fans sports dollar up there? The Blue Jays and Raptors. Its not like the Isles only compete for attention with just the Knicks and Yanks, and the Giants, Jets, Nets, Mets and Raggies don't exist. Sorry Twine your wrong on this.
