    [quote user="bigblue4417"][quote user="Kase-1"][quote user="bigblue4417"]Well no **** Kase. lol You live in NY and it's the NY Rangers. I would expect them to put it on. Any city that doesn't have a hockey team will not be showing Hockey on any of their TV's. Why you may ask....cause no one gives a ****!
    [/quote]By that reasoning any city that doesnt have a basketball team wouldnt show a hoops game.

    Your care package is gonna be on the way right after we get these SB Programs, me, Ed and Bennett are taking a trip to the dollar store in an hr or so
    [/quote]
    Exactly my point my good friend. They will show BBall from any other city or state because it's popular nationwide. Thank you for proving mine and Matt's point. Holler at me when they start showing NHL games on ESPN or TNT in primetime. 1 nationally televised game a week? C'Mon Maaaaaaan


    Thank you very much for the care package. As you know it means alot to me. I really do appreciate it and if you need reimbursement for postage please let me know.
    [/quote]NHL on NATIONWIDE on NBCSports more nights than NBA on TNT in addition to 1 game per week on NBC while NBA has 1 game on ABC per week

    I really hope I can find these dollar store programs cause you'll def get one. You're my boy and I gotta let you get some Giants stuff cause its tough out there in SLC

      I can't even name 5 hockey players that play today and I am constantly on ESPN, watching SportsCenter, Sports Illustrated all the above. It never gets talked about or shown anywhere. Even Linda Cohn complains all the time on SC, "When are we going to do hockey highlights?" Uhhhh later Linda, no one gives a **** about hockey. Maybe after they talk about Peytons neck the second time. Only time I ever see hockey is in the top 10.

          That is debatable but no way to get a real answer.
          [/quote]Well Im happy you asked, I judged it by the amount of cities that sellout their home games and in the NHL there were 12 teams that sold out 100% of their games and 4 more that sold out 99% of their games, while the NBA had 6 teams that sold out 100% of their home games and 3 teams that sold out 99% of their games


          [/quote]
          You subtract Canada?


          [/quote]Why subtract Canadia, they have teams in both sports.

          But even without Canadia NHL has 11 teams that sellout 99% or better and the NBA has 9 that sellout 99% or better
          [/quote]
          So it's almost even. lol

          Your case is getting weaker and weaker by the minute...
          [/quote]Almost doesnt mean tish, the pats ALMOST won the super bowl, the Bills were ALMOST 4x SB champions

              yea but the fact remains that NBA has 4 more NBA franchises, bigger stadiums, and bigger crowds

              /end game
              [/quote]4 more Franchises that cant sellout, bigger arenas that are empty and bigger crowds that arent filling the seats
              [/quote]

              they average more people per game and only ONE NHL team sells out every night, while two NBA teams sell out every night on average regardless of where they play.
              [/quote]More people cause there's more seats
              More NHL teams can support strong home fanbases while NBA teams have better road followings
              [/quote]

              Not if u take out the Canadian franchises
              [/quote]If you take out the Canadian teams there are still more NHL teams that sell out on a consistent basis
              [/quote]


              http://espn.go.com/nba/attendance/_/...11/sort/allPct

              http://espn.go.com/nhl/attendance/_/...11/sort/allPct

              the truth will set you free
              [/quote]The NHL would still have more teams (Chicago, Philthy, SJ, DC, STL, Boston, Pittsburgh) compared to the NBA (Dallas, Chicago, Portland, Orlando, Miami, Boston)

              The NHL also has 4 teams that sellout 99% of their games compared to the NBAs 3
              [/quote]

              bottom line is that overall both leagues don't sell out overall and can sell more tickets if they had the fan base and the NBA still outdraws the NHL
              [/quote]

              Bottom line is that the NBA cant stand up to the NHL in selling out and maintaining strong fanbases. If they had the fanbases of the NFL we'd both be screwed as fans, then again thatll never happen cause NBA and NHL have 82 game seasons
              [/quote]

              I see rex is back making ridic statements
              [/quote]Nah I gotta say the most ridiculous statement was saying that the nation doesnt care about hockey, cause it plain and simple isnt true
              [/quote]

              its actually quite true

              hockey towns care about hockey - thats about it...
              [/quote]And there are more 'hockeytowns' than 'basketballtowns'
              [/quote]

              the country loves basketball and the NBA

              Its clear that that isn't the case for NHL

              As much as we hate ESPN and sportscenter and what its become, it is all about the most pop things. Go watch an hour of Sportscenter and tell me how much love Hockey gets over hoops

                  [quote user="bigblue4417"]N.B.A. telecasts outdraw N.H.L. telecasts by somewhere between a 3-to-1 and 4-to-1 margin in America.[/quote]</p>


                  You guys just don't get it. Hockey doesn't do well on TV because of the smallness of the puck. HD helps, but not enough. But the game is a great one. Far more fast paced, far more exciting. Plus you can hit people. </p>


                  The NBA is essentially a sucky game. Its popular in the same way as Survivor or American Idol is popular. I can't watch a friggin basketball game until the 4th quarter. I get that you guys love it and I think thats great. You love your hoops and I get that. But don't knock hockey because you don't get it. Quoting attendance and TV stats is a losing argument. Basketball translates better to TV. And TV is where its at. Doesn't say anything about the quality of each game.</p>


                  One thing we learned in the radio business.....The masses are asses.</p>


                  </p>[/quote]

                  well if thats your argument then I guess Hockey fans aren't as diehard as you suggest.

                    [quote user="Kase-1"]
                    See ridiculous generalized statements like that make this argument go on WAY too long
                    [/quote]
                    I believe this to be true as well Kase. General statement or not. If we are going with majority it's true.
                    [/quote]And if we're going with general statements, there are more 'hockeytowns' than 'basketballtowns' so then Nationwide hockey has a bigger following
                    [/quote]lol there aren't more HOCKEY towns...

                    like I pointed out before, NBA has 29 different american teams and NHL has 25

                    the country follows basketball not nhl...

                    we can poll the average sports fan and see their general knowledge of NBA vs NHL

                        Hockey really needs a TV angle from over the ice similar to how the NFL has that camera floating around behind the QB

                          Nobody is knocking hockey, Matt or myself. Just simply proving a point that hockey is no where near as popular as basketball nationally. It will always be the 4th most popular sport in the US and could someday go even lower.

                          If you asked a casual sports fan if he would rather have front row seats or an all access pass to tv games for hockey or B'ball 99% of them are going to go for B'Ball.

                          If you asked a serious Knicks/Rangers, Bulls/Blackhawks or Bruins/Celtics I would bet more than 70% takes B'ball.

                          No one cares about hockey nationally. If you have a team then of course you are going to care more. I have been to plenty of sports bars in my life. I have never seen hockey on TV nor hear people talking about it. There are bars that would rather show replays of SC than live hockey. No one cares.
                          [/quote]Matt said hockey was boring, which was his main reason why hockey isnt popular. Thats a knock. I was at a bar the other night and the ranger game was on.
                          [/quote]

                          Its simple - if it was as exciting as some think it is, it would do better.

                          ANd your in NEW YORK, ANYTHING is on ANYWHERE.

                          IF anything the fact that Lando has never seen a hockey game on in a sports bar should pretty much prove how nationally nobody cares about hockey...

                          you step out of hockey towns - ur going to be hard pressed to catch a puck game on TV...

                              That may be what you are saying Lando, buts its not what Matt is saying. It was yesterday that Matt made the point that hockey is "boring" BECAUSE its less popular than the other 3 sports.</p>


                              Thats where this discussion started. </p>[/quote]

                              Reverse that

                              and its boring in comparison to the other sports...

                              I have been to hockey games as well and prefer them on TV.

                              But to be honest, I think that about any sport except for maybe basketball
