There are season ticket holders in other cities who are Leafs' fans.
You can enjoy NHL hockey without your #1 team being involved. Heck, lots of Leafs' fans enjoy the playoffs every year something that isn't a Leafs' tradition.
No I don't have Leafs season tickets.
If I want to watch another team play besides the Leafs then I would watch their games from home for free on TSN or CBC. So I don't want to spend my money on season tickets for another team in Toronto/Markham just because they would be another option.
Question is simple, but it's directed at the dieheart Leaf fans. If an announcement came down tomorrow that there will be another team in Toronto/ Markham, and the season tickets are on sale, would you buy the season tickets for the whatever other team will be in the city?
My answer: I'm from Markham (but I live in Kingston now), I would not buy season tickets mostly because I can't afford them and also I live 2 1/2 hours away from Markham, be kind of hard to make the trip every few weeks. No I would not buy Toronto tickets either, come to think of it I have NOT boughten any MLSE merchandise, for that to happen that company needs to show me that they are committed to icing a winning product.
