I am almost positive that the NFL, which does not have a team in Toronto or Canada, has more eyeballs paying attention to it in the GTA than TFC-MLS do.
I have to disagree. This may have been true upto last year, but there was a significant widening of the gap in 2016 which looks likely to be even more significant in 2017 if attendance growth, on-field quality and overall buzz ammong the general public is anything to go by. In terms of interest in Toronto, not only has TFC got the fastest growing fanbase, I would place its current position in the city's consciousness as:

Leafs
Blue Jays
...
Raptors
...
TFC
...
...
Argos
...
Toronto Rock
...
...
...
Marlies
...
...
Wolfpack
