That's some great numbers in that part of the country, and can only improve!
Combine the fact that the Ti-cats underwent a renaissance, and the argos still draw 26000 with such a lousy team tells me that the sport can grow even more in the most populated region of the country!
Here's another amazing fact about the Grey Cup: It was the most-watched television show in the country last week and that applied in the Toronto-Hamilton region, where it attracted 875,000 viewers. That was almost double the number who watched last Wednesday's Montreal-Toronto hockey game in this area (454,000 of the 1.4 million who tuned into TSN's coverage.)[url]http://thestar.blogs.com/sportsmedia/2009/12/change-at-cfrb-veteran-sports-announcer-rick-hodge-who-joined-cfrb-last-year-is-out-in-whats-been-described-as-a-parting.html[/url]
