have gone 0-3. The 0-2 Wizards and a bunch of 1-2 teams including the Cav's (who we totally demolished) are still ranked above us.
ESPN still has no love for us, they just couldn't rank us below 0-3 teams and still pretend to be legitimate and unbiased.
i don't buy that entirely. stein, the only espn writer involved in these power rankings, has always had good things to say about toronto. he likes the city, the team, and all kinds of players that have played here. he has consistently written positive things about the raps.
you're right that they only put 0-3 teams below us, but this has nothing to do with anti-toronto bias from stein. he's the last espn writer i would accuse of doing that.
