I think part of the reason is that those towns are under-served by the major north american sports, and Canada doesn't have colleges sports like the US.

LA is the only city in the top 9 in attendance that actually has teams from all of the big 4 leagues, and I guess you could count Toronto too since they have a CFL team but that's not really comparable to an NFL team.

Under served? WTF? The three cities have the big ones by Canadian standards. Football and Hockey. Ever hear of the CFL and NHL? Also Toronto does have MLB and NBA, so can get much more service than that....

As for University sports, check your facts. Canada does have University sports in all the big sports, Basketball, Hockey and Football.........

As for Comparing CFL and NFL, when did Los Angeles get an NFL team? Nope Only Toronto has the top 4 BIG LEAGUE TEAMS in the top 9.

A professional football league around for a hell of a lot longer than the NFL, is a major league in any Canadians eyes.

You yanks think football begins and ends with the NFL, guess what it doesn't.

I think he was considering USC and UCLA as professional as both teams draw over 70,000 a game. Pretty much pro
