What makes you think that Jr. A & MSL is a "better product?"
Yeah, yeah, I know the argument - better players, better teams - but even those attributes can be challenged. For example - can the best Jr. B teams beat the worst Jr. A teams? (My answer - absolutely!) However, you did said "product."
Then we are looking from a consumer point of view; how does one determine which product is best consumed? Is it possible that Jr. B is more exciting, fun to watch and cheer and cheaper to attend than both Junior A and Major? I think it is possible. Not every beer drinker will save their hard earned bucks to spend it on top of the line ale; some will buy low end Molson or Labatts and have more of it; some even pay less for their local hometown brew. That might say something.
I think there are two factors to your question though - there are almost double the amount of Jr. B teams than there are Jr. A and Major combined. This equates to a larger consumer base, so not necessarily a "better" product, but still one more widely consumed. And Jr. B has a few more weeks left - the hunt for the playoffs - always an exciting time in any level - is on and people are interested. Especially all those homers out there who follow their hometown teams with a passion. Both major leagues are not quite yet halfway through their seasons.
So there is my take.
