41,802 fans have enjoyed the 6 Ottawa Fury FC soccer games at (avg. 6967), soccer is here to stay!!! Incredible numbers considering it gets no TV sports coverage or media coverage in Canada!!! I find it amusing that the sports types in the press come from a different generation where the only things they pay attention to is basketball, hockey, football (how the hell did get that name anyways?), and baseball. Yet right in front of them, is the biggest sports news story in Canada:

Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, and Vancouver all seem to be pulling in the crowds with zero press coverage.

The other big news story that has gotten no press coverage, more kids are signed up for soccer over hockey in Canada by a massive amount, yet the press only talk hockey.
