Best fans in each sport?? REACT TO ME!!
« on: April 16, 2015, 02:49:10 pm »


They got Buffalo right.  Seems to me like SL is right for beisbol as well.  Personally, I was a bit surprised by New Orleans.

Thoughts??

DC isn't a real surprise on soccer, though I would've guessed NYC

I always assumed Raiders fans were the most die hard.

I would put Chicago or Detroit or even Montreal ahead of Buffalo in hockey

NCAA: Syracuse

NCAA Football: too many on par with each other: LSU, Texas, Tennesee...etc

Beisbol: Mets

Read the criteria again; it says fans of the SPORT IN GENERAL, not of their team

Chicago was a wasteland when the Hawks sucked, Detroit only follows the Wings, Montreal isn't in America.   :uhh

The only reason Chicago was a wasteland was because Bill Wirtz wouldn't spend any money on the team, shit all over the Blackhawks history by disrespecting their past players (ie specifically Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito) which pissed off fans and more importantly refused to broadcast home games because he thought the fans should be going to the games instead of watching on TV.

Sorry I didn't qualify with the required one sentence answer so here goes.....the only reason Buffalo fans are "tuning in" is because Toronto fans are buying up half their tickets since they can't get Leafs tickets away from the corps that buy them all up in Toronto. So what exactly qualifies as "tuning in"? Do they take into account that Buffalo is just across the lake from the biggest hockey market in North America?

Ask the Wall Street Journal.

A few years ago when the Ducks won the Cup in game 6, Nielsen ratings showed there were more TVs tuned to the game in the Buffalo market than there was in Southern California. 

There are no more rabid hockey fans in the USA than in Buffalo.

Same thing happened in B-lo, plus it looked like the team was leaving.  And the fans still didn't leave in droves like they did in Chitown.

I think Minnesota would beg to differ, but that's just an opinion.

My point is that the numbers are more than likely skewed based on geography and the fact that American feeds are used in Canada. I'd like to know if they actually differentiate between the Buffalo TV service providers and the Canadian ones who buy the same feed.

Sure, lots of fans say they're the best, and there are certainly lots of great fan bases.  In the USA, I think Buffalo, Detroit, and Minnesota would be your best ones.  But, like you, I don't know the specifics of the figures.
