    my argument is that hockey isn't entertaining in comparison to other sports. If it was, it wouldn't be at hte bottom of the big 4
    [/quote]In your mind maybe, but for a while it was above the NBA in TV viewership and attendance. That doesnt mean we were getting the best the NHL had to offer, its just how it lies. The 'bottom' of the big 4 will always a revolving door, dont kid yourself just cause you hate hockey
    [/quote]

    in the dog years of the NBA while NHL was peaking

    thats already diminished

    im not kidding my self...

    Hockey if lucky can hit 3, but has a safe average at 4

    Im not speaking because I hate it, im speaking this way because its true.

    Your defending it because YOU love it.

    The sport itself isn't as entertaining to the country - theres no doubt about it

      Judging by the fact that the NBA had 6 teams that sold out every game and the NHL LITERALLY had double that with 12 teams, id have to say that hockey was more of the fan favorite

        [/quote]

        because your going by the total draw of each team. NBA teams combined drew more than NHL teams did combined...

        AND if your going to go by sellouts - don't pick and choose just home games select OVERALL sellouts

        EDIT: NBA has a higher total number of fans each night then a significant difference in TV ratings that can't be overlooked

            TV Ratings and total amount of people to the game speaks for itself.

            Also the fact that so many teams sell out at home and not on the road just further proves the point how its not a nationally accepted game.



            3-1 in a finals series on Ratings. THATS HUUUGE

                1st it was boring, then it had no fans, then it had no tv contract, then it had no momentum once crosby was gone, then it had no tv ratings, and now it has no road following??

                    hate to break it to you, but hockey is bunch of no names as well

                    I mean general opinion is on my side with this. As much as u guys try and say im crazy - im in the overwelming majority
                    [/quote]To the uneducated fairweather sports fan that follows The Yankees to watch Jeter it just may seem that hockey is a bunch of no names...... LOL []

                    Well when you poll the country asking what is more 'boring' hockey or baseball, let me know the results
                    [/quote]</p>


                    well he's right about the no names think.
                    You take the stars of each sport....
                    You ask someoen who a Manning is...or who Derek Jeter is....or who Lebron James/Kobe Bryant are....

                    Thennnnnn ask them who Alex Ovechkin is.....</p>


                    "huh? a what??"

                    Hockey fans are in the minority man. and that's ok, you can just be among the hockey <u>hipsters!</u> =P
                    that way when ppl like me finally get into the NHL again, you can rag on us.
                    I used to play hockey, but i dont have much interest in it anymore.</p>[/quote]gross. were the hockey underground.

                    im a pretty big sports guy. I couldn't name ten players in the NHL
                    [/quote]
                    I am just as big a fan as you are and I know I couldn't. Sorry Kase but Matt is right for sure.

                    GO RANGERS!

                        I said its a boring sport and the numbers prove it.

                        You quoted the numbers and made a point that they sell out...

                        It is still apart of the big 4... but the TV ratings blow.

                        Go look at 08-09's numbers, significant drop since then.

                        You then said that they outsell the NBA and quoted a percentage, but the hard numbers tell you thats not true.

                        Do you know what your arguing anymore because I've just responded to YOUR points?

                          You do love hockey alot Kase and we all appreciate that but your love won't let you see the other side of the argument.

                          Personally I would rather watch baseball than hockey and I hate baseball. I watched the Olympic hockey when we played Canada and that was awesome. I will also watch the Rangers to support my boy Kase. Maybe I would watch some playoff hockey but I doubt it. Never have before.

                            your love is blinding you

                            its funny, go look at the bottom of the barrell of the overall sell out stats.

                            Islanders total sellout rating was 81.5% and they average 14,220 people a game,

                            Then go look at the 76ers who who have an 80.8% but have JUST under 16k a game...

                            Smaller percentage but about 1800 people MORE a game. Your trying to somehow say thats a victory for the NHL in your comparison

                            and then on the flipside, Edmonton which is one of the teams that averages most sellouts at home only seats 16k.....

                            so like I said, your percentage argument is weak

                                TV Ratings and total amount of people to the game speaks for itself.

                                Also the fact that so many teams sell out at home and not on the road just further proves the point how its not a nationally accepted game.



                                3-1 in a finals series on Ratings. THATS HUUUGE


                                [/quote]Do you even know what your argument is??? You keep changing it so often its dizzying.

                                1st it was boring, then it had no fans, then it had no tv contract, then it had no momentum once crosby was gone, then it had no tv ratings, and now it has no road following??

                                I think you just like arguing AGAINST hockey

                                No YOU changed it.

                                I said its a boring sport and the numbers prove it.

                                You quoted the numbers and made a point that they sell out...

                                It is still apart of the big 4... but the TV ratings blow.

                                Go look at 08-09's numbers, significant drop since then.

                                You then said that they outsell the NBA and quoted a percentage, but the hard numbers tell you thats not true.

                                Do you know what your arguing anymore because I've just responded to YOUR points?


                                [/quote]LOL, well now we're just gonna go back and forth arent we...

                                You said the numbers prove that its 'boring' and I proved you wrong

                                The numbers HAVENT dropped 'significantly' the NHL has remained consistent with 12 teams that sell out EVERY HOME GAME, and the NBA can BARELY manage a handful, thats what the 'hard numbers' tell me, but you'll twist that somehow, its all good

                                The points I keep arguing are the ones that you keep changing on me, everytime I make a point you change the argument
