      And think about this.</p>


      The Boston fans were far more excited about the Bruins Stanley Cup championship than the Celtics championship.</p>


      AND</p>


      One of the greatest sports days in New York history was the Stanley Cup championship of the Rangers in 1994. I doubt any of the recent Yankee championship energized the city like the Rangers did.</p>[/quote]Ive experienced Yankee and Giants parades, I was too young to attend the parade in 94 and Im DIEING to attend a Rangers parade down the canyon of heroes, I would imagine it to be TREMENDOUS!!!!
      [/quote]

      lol i'll tell u right now - <u>it won't top the Rangers parade in 94</u>, Giants parade in 07, or Yankees in 96
      [/quote]and if it happened, it wont be because hockey became more "boring"
      [/quote]

      i've made my argument pretty clear, but yet u guys still try to change what i say

      Hockey has definitly gotten MORE popular but it is still widely seen as a boring sport. Only hockey towns support hockey (and canada).

      **** man go to your local modells. Go see how much ranger **** there is compared to Knicks, Giants, Jets, Mets, and Yankees

      Hockey's popularity is actually on a small decline since 3 years ago (facts are facts)

      Maybe not in NEW YORK, but around the country all the numbers suggest it.
      [/quote]its marketing. if tbs or tnt put on hockey games instead of basketball, ratings and everything else hockey related would go up.
      [/quote]

      dude ur ****in crazy...

      MMA had NO marketing but still captured americas heart. Hockey has been around long enough and has enough time on ESPN's highlight to get attention...

      if people like the sport they would watch it....

      TBS n TNT put it on, BECAUSE THERES A MARKET FOR IT

      the hockey interest isn't big enough for them to do that. They'll get more people watching reruns of Law and ORder and Family Guy
      [/quote]
      Even if I wanted to watch hockey I wouldn't be able to cause it's never on any channels what so ever. lol

          [quote user="dezzzR"]sooo because more people showed up at a parade, it trumped 94? give me a break.
          [/quote]</P>


          uhh...yes...obviously...because it was more important to many many more people.</P>


          sure, 94 was more important to ranger fans....but there are less ranger fans....because hockey is less popular. wasnt that the point of this all??
          how are you denying what matt said if those statistics are true? lol</P>

                CBS News reportedthat
                U.S.Major League Soccerhas eclipsed both theNBAand theNHLin terms
                of average attendance at games. The article noted thatmere attendance
                isn’t the full measure of a sport’s popularity. The indoor arenas of
                basketball and hockey have structurally smaller audience capacities than
                the capacious outdoor arenas of football. And percentage attendance at
                NBA and NHL games tends to be nearer capacity than attendance at soccer.</p>


                Here’s how the most recentattendance numbersbreak down:</p>
                1. NFL: 66,960
                2. MLB: 30,352
                3. MLS: 17,872
                4. NBA: 17,319
                5. NHL: 17,126



                Is soccer well on the road of becoming America’s third favorite sport behind football and baseball? We used Social Radar to analyze conversations online.<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 15px; font-weight: bold;"></span></p>

                </p>


                We measured the number of times the words ‘basketball,’ ‘soccer’ and
                ‘hockey’ appeared online since November 2009. The trend chart above
                shows that basketball generated the most mentions overall throughout the
                two year time period.</p>
                <h3>NBA vs. NHL vs. MLS buzz</h3>


                </p>


                We ran the same analysis around the number of times ‘NBA’ (National
                Basketball Association), ‘NHL’ (National Hockey League) and ‘MLS’ (Major
                League Soccer) were mentioned online. Again, the NBA generated the most
                chatter by a wide margin, though MLS is currently at its closest point
                to NBA buzz.</p>

                  im surprised MLS teams still exist. Sad really that the world's most popular sport cant make a splash in the U.S. until every time the world cup rolls around

                    ehhh i fail to see that. Although those are surprising numbers no way MLS is anywhere near those

                    No public attention, half the games, half the teams, and are averaging less than double per game...

                    i wouldn't say they are naywhere even near NHL

                              I dont want people to get all butthurt over this debate. It's not like im saying hockey is an inferior sport by any means. I just kinda thought it was all obvious, and factual: It's not nearly as popular a sport as the rest.
                              I follow that trend too unfortunately. No particular reason. I liked hockey as a kid. I played until I was 17, but always thought the NHL was 'meh'...I was always much more into football, baseball, and basketball(albeit the 90s specifically). I always try to get into hockey...but to me its just easily forgettable.</P>


                              If you wanna go even further, you can say that Nascar DESTROYS anything any other sport can try to compete with. The largest spectator sport by far, and it probably has the best ratings too.
                              I dont even consider nascar a real sport personally lol....there's no ball! there's not even a game! its just driving and making the same turn over and over! lol</P>
