    We keep hearing about the popularity of basketball with youth, fastest growing sport, outpacing hockey, etc. It is a good question - when will that start to be reflected in ratings and programming? 10 years? 20?

      Ratings will go up as soon as RR stops stealing the games and pays for tsn and sportsnet lol

        as long as hockey is king and makes the most money it will stay this way, people get what they want and they want hockey
        the viewer ratings are always higher for hockey and baseball but these things take time, hockey is entrenched, jays are 40 years old and the raptors 20

        also in a general society sense there is so much to do beyond sports , so many sports to follow through the internet, that it can be hard to gain the spotlight from other sports

        look at the nfl in the states, the sport never stops being in the news all year round, hard to get your place in the sun in a crowded market for people's attention and free time

          48-21 Raptors heading too 3 Divison Tittles and Toronto Airways still have Leaf Lunch ... Also lets not forget Baseball central or Football Fridays ...

          Will there ever be a hour dedicated to the sport of Basketball in this market ?
          Sat March 12 Raps beat Heat in OT. Post game 590 and 1050 BOTH doing Leafs coverage --ridiculous. Shame on Toronto sports media. This website is the only site that consistently covers Raps.

            There were times when fan 590 had CFL Argo rights and would have Football Fridays and shove Argo news down our throat ... Why if you have the rights to Raptor games then why don't you invest a hour of the day talking about it ? Heck if not in the regular season why not the playoffs ?

              Let's get out of the first round. The media has no hidden agenda when it comes to sports talk, they're giving the people what they want.

                I know media has no hidden agenda but I do think the fan 590 has been know for a lack of hiring minorities on their airways .... Think about it .. Dean , Blair , Waker and Bob ... You can't get any more white then that ....
