When Toronto's novelty of not being the only Canadian city, especially to much smaller cities, to host events..sporting or otherwise (Argos, Junos, Vanier Cup), then Toronto usually abandons that team or that event in droves just because of losing lustre of what was once sacred to only Toronto is now in other Canadian cities that get that event/sport as well.
The single exception is hockey but hockey is ingrained at a young age in Canada & Toronto & it's no exception in Canada, outside of Saskatchewan, that it remains the most popular sport.
