Keegan Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 quote:Originally posted by theaub I would guarantee that there are at least 2X more people who know more about Canada basketball compared to Canada soccer. Also if you've never met a basketball fan in your life...does your town have like 3 people living in it? What I meant was pro basketball, like people who follow the raptors or NBA and I have met foreign kids who like basketball at school. Canadians at school like Soccer, Football, Baseball and Hockey. And my school came second at OFSAA for basketball. Maybe its a different part of the country but where I live soccer is huge, you go to school and everyone is sitting around watching the champions league after class or soccer saturday on Sportsnet. **** we even had a good 15 people skipping class to watch the joke that was South Africa - Canada. its a boarding school but most canadian fans are local except one from Montreal I would really doubt that more people know more about Canadian Basketball than Canadian Soccer because Canada Soccer gets some decent coverage on Sportsnet and on the footy show on the score. Not to mention the enormous success of TFC, just look at the ticket sales for Jamaica so far. I have honestly never heard of many Canadian basketball players and I followed their first qualifying tournament and then this recent one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
