The Raiders actually had and still have a huge following. I would argue that they still have more fans here than in Oakland.
Which is fascinating because I would have argued the exact same thing about Oakland when the Raiders were in LA.
There must be something about Al Davis which makes fans like him more from afar...

None of the Canadian venues would be of NFL caliber except Toronto and the refurbed BC Place. I'm not sure that Toronto is large enough. Most of the league plays in the equivalent of D1-FCS stadia.

Actually, the team that got to Baltimore was pretty terrible; possibly the worst defensive team I've ever seen.
I will admit they improved in a hurry, though.
