I tend to agree that this product isn't marketed very well. However, I disagree that the uniform is an issue. The Montreal Canadiens are the most storied franchise in North American sports, and like most original 6 teams, have a large fan base in all cities. Given the Leaf-veto, the Toronto Maple Leafs should be the most hated team from Hamilton to Windsor. They, like our team that was stolen in 1925 (Rangers) have had to live with the curse of the Tiger, and are doomed to go over 50 years without a championship. How is that for a grudge? But seriously, the lack of promotion in the oligopoly style N. American sports, makes AHL hockey largely irrelevant. If we had the glimmer of hope to make it to an upper tier, every game would sell out. Only certain people are allowed to make money on sports in the US and Canada. For this reason, it is hard to get behind a potential NASL team. If there was a chance for Hamilton United to be promoted and play against Toronto FC, it is an easy sell out.
