    Raptors ratings are the future, man. Just look at the demographics at the ACC - a lot of youth and a lot of minorities (1st or 2nd generation Canadians). Hockey will maintain its popularity for a long time but doesn't have anywhere near the room for growth that the Raps fan base has. Team success will accelerate things. Just the same as these Canadian kids being first round draft picks now, 12-15 years after Vinsanity, if Ujiri can sustain some success here we'll see the benefits of it for years down the road.

    As big of Leafs fan I am. The Leafs not making the playoffs have brang alot more interest to the Raptors, such is much needed.
    Ouch! Just seeing those positioned Raptor claws hurts.

    Default Raptors get higher TV ratings than hockey?!?!

    Who's pumped up for a game 7??

    Anyways... I was on bleacher report and I was reading how the raptors got higher TV ratings for game 5 than the three game 7s for hockey.

    Raptors-Nets Got Higher Ratings in Canada on Wednesday Than Three NHL Game 7′s | The Big Lead (via http://ble.ac/teamstream-) http://teamstre.am/1iTkkh3

    Although it wasn't the maple leafs, being a raptors fan I'm delighted to hear from statistics that basketball is growing and it is drawing near to hockey.

    *to TSN* take note that raptors fans do deserve attention sometimes more than hockey.

    Not very surprising. I'm sure it would be a different story if the Leafs were still in, though.

    I would atleast rank raptors below CFL and NFL as well...NFL gets huge TV ratings in canada yet they have nothing to do with canada. Superbowls have been average 5-8 million viewers per game and CFL gets really good ratings as well....its hockey, football, baseball and than basketball in canada maybe thats why we are on 2nd tier networks. But remember its the TV viewers that generate the money, so when basketball games average 200,000 average viewers per game throughout the season why would they be on main networks?

    naw dude i was at the maple leafs square last year for the leafs and half the ppl outside were brown. and raptors ratings are good but they only hit the 1 million viewer mark after the 2001 game 7 916,000...in the past 13 years canada population has increased by 3-4 million ppl most of the immigrants landing in GTA...So an increase of less than 100,000 viewers is not big deal and also remember ratings went down for game 7 rather going up proves most are just casual fan who will watch if the games on.

    Stop about game 7 shit.

    Many peeps watched this game on ABC. I did too. LP used ONLY ABC feed.

    Heck... even my parents watched game 7 on ABC.

    Who are you anyway?

    Odd way to open your RR career, bashing ratings and seeming pro-hockey.

    all these old threads being brought up is really annoying.

    Can a mod merge all the TV threads please?
