I think comparing the Raptors
to the Jays is silly. After the strike their attendance was fine, it dipped a little because the team stunk and they traded away Alomar and others. The attendance didn't really nose dive until after Clemens went to NY. Ever since then, the Blue Jays haven't had a snowball's chance in hell of making the playoffs mainly b/c of the division they play in. Put that playoff structure in any sport and good luck with attendance.
