Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

Isn't baseball generally more popular than NBA? I always see more hype for World Series than NBA Finals. But probably cuz I'm from Yankee territory.

It's pretty clear NFL is the favorite though.

They're neck and neck. The NBA Finals do about as good as the World Series ratings wise. Baseball was way ahead 30 years ago though.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

celtics/lakers killed the rangers/giants series in tv ratings.

possible anomaly. or a sign of the future...

i'll take the latter.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

Baseball's definitely on the decline, last years Rangers/Giants World Series ratings were the worst ever. Last years NBA Finals had it's highest ratings since 98 which was Jordan's last game with the Bulls.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

the Rangers/Giants bad ratings had little to do with the sport, but more the popularity of the teams playing. there was no story, no one had a strong reason to care.

baseball has been declining though, but so has NBA. i don't even have that many friends who bother with the NBA anymore, its mostly college for them now. of course Celtics/Lakers was going to have high numbers, its fucking Kobe Bryant vs. the powerhouse that were the Celtics. if the Heat get in this year, it will have even higher ratings.

the story involved helps or hurts ratings when it comes to finals.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

this is why I think NBA will do well versus MLB. Celtics, Lakers, and Heat will be ratings magnets, and I think at least one of these three will be there.

mlb could get a boost from the yankees, red sox, or mets. which i suppose is likely with the first two teams. especially the red sox.
