The TV market actually defines their metropolitan population 37th.
They are 7th because the city limits incorporates a larger proportion of their metropolitan area than most cities.
If their were no political boundaries for metropolitan areas, SA would be 37th.
When you think about it, that makes SA fortunate to even have a team when there are metropolitan areas larger than SA that have no team.
