Hoe popular are the Raps now around Toronto these days?
Oh i'd say number 2 at this point. It's hard to compare as some sports are played in opposite parts of the year, but the general feeling i get is that the raps are ahead of the jays.

anyways, funny you mention bad teams because from what i remember, the raps were drawing pretty good audiences back during the rebuilding Babcock era. better than many rebuilding US teams at least.

In any case, i say toronto is one of the stronger basketball markets in North America.
