Hockey is a joke .. not to some people but to me it is. Is there even a single black guy in the whole league? audience?

just because you don't like it doesn't mean hockey is dead.

somebody post the article about Mark Cuban saying that the NHL games get the same number of north american TV viewers as the NBA games

And just because you don't find Nascar appealing doesn't mean that Nascar isnt.

I could post the article about Nascar getting more number of north american TV viewers than the NBA or NHL games

I hate hockey so much. I hate having to watch 20 minutes of hockey highlights in a 30 minute segment just so I can catch a glimpse of highlights from every single other sport.

Yeah theres some black players. Mike Grier, Anson Carter. Both serviceable players.

Game is pretty good right now, some highlight reel goals and saves, way better then I expected.

Amen. I remember during the hockey lockout and NBA playoffs were going on. They actually had the nerve to put a labour meeting for the NHL before the basketball highlights . And I love how every damn hockey game gets a post game analysis whcih is basically interviews of some scrub player while every other sport gets a 10 second video clip.

ummm, I never said NASCAR was dead or that nobody likes NASCAR, obviously it's very popular even though I don't like it.

took some digging but i found it for you kwaj:

Quote:
"People in the States underestimate (hockey)," he said. "More people watch Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday nights than watch NBA basketball on Thursday night in the States. People in the U.S. don't realize that. They don't realize there are more hockey fans in a country of (32.8) million than there are NBA fans in the U.S. (population 300 million).

It's an interesting point. The NBA on TNT, the league's Thursday night national broadcast, averaged a 1.1 rating last season, or about one million households in the United States. Meanwhile, Hockey Night in Canada's marquee Saturday night matchup is averaging about 1.27 million viewers in the northland. If you combine that with the typical rating for a national U.S. broadcast of an NHL game on the obscure Versus network - even if it's a pittance of about 160,000 households - it represents an impressive North American audience.

It's rough math, but it's the ballpark number that's important. Cuban's point is that people on either side of the border simply don't think of hockey as having an audience as large as basketball's. If you look at the U.S. perception of the NBA compared to that of the NHL. - "and perception," said Cuban, "is reality" - it's big league versus bush league. And even if folks in the U.S. realize the NHL is big in Canada, they probably don't realize exactly how big it really is.


the opening quote comes from Mark Cuban
