Ratings disagree with all of this.




Probably because the NHL doesn't know what the frick it's doing negotiating contracts. I think it was shown on Versus.

I would guess NBA teams do. I would also guess that MLB temas sell more than everyone.

47 x 94 ft. You aren't going to get the same crowds as you would for a sport with much larger playing fields, especially in the day of HDTV. But its all about ratings. Jesus, are yall this retarded?

I'll use your logic on this one:

They would play on a better network if they could get the people to watch it on their TVs.

So, per season, do nba teams sell more tickets or mls teams?


I dk, I think it depends on the city and the talent level of said team in the NBA. Cities like LA and NYC will have a good crowd no matter how good their team is, but cities like Memphis and other small market teams will have bad crowds when the team sucks.

You also have to remember that they play 45 or so home games a year.

Exactly. So you agree that attendance alone isnt the best metric and considering tv ratings is important.

I'm going by objective data on what people value, you aren't.


Why don't you address the entire crux of my argument.

The NBA is more popular than NHL, Nascar, and MLB because it gets better ratings nationwide.

Why do you not agree with that statement? Because you and your friends don't watch the NBA and prefer Nascar?

You've got polls (which we all know are always perfect and reliable, amirite?) and I have ratings data:

I'll agree that NHL and NBA are more popular than MLS. MLS is doing well with attendance, though, considering the NHL and NBA are the top hockey and basketball leagues in the world while MLS might be a top 10 soccer league, talent-wise, at best.

Let's see, per your pic:

And I have data on ratings from millions of TV sets. Which do you think is a better representation of popularity. You honestly can't be this dumb, can you? Admit you were wrong and lets move on and stop hijacking this thread.

I'm surprised baseball is still beating College Football. That must be because of their are not any good teams in the Northeast.

I think it all boils down to personal preference. A lot to do with what you grew up playing and where you grew up.

I was born in Kentucky then grew up in Memphis, two major basketball cities. I grew up playing basketball all year except for football season.

I was amazed when I got to school at Alabama how little my friends from Bama cared about any form of basketball college or NBA.

Not necessarily. Baseball, hockey and NASCAR don't lend themselves to watching on TV nearly as much as basketball. It doesn't mean people don't follow those sports, as clearly shown.

This is dumb. If you are a hockey fan, you will watch it on TV. All of my friends who are, always do. Same for every other sport. Today, with HDTV, every sport lends itself to being watched on TV. Come up with a better excuse.

Notice, I have yet to mention merchandising, endorsements, etc

Maybe. Some of it may have to do with ratings gathering as well. Like polls, they use a pretty small sample.

NHL is definitely a regional popularity and since it's primarily based in Canada, doesn't get the mainstream publicity native sports get. NBA must appeal to urban couch potatoes.

Not if you don't have versus, which many people don't.

NASCAR must appeal to toothless rednecks. Stereotypes are fun!
