C'mon Chungachanga! I specifically created this thread to debate you and now you are going MIA on me? Well that gratitude for you!
"- ESPN2 had its most viewed WNBA regular season since 2005, averaging 270,000 viewers, up 5% over last season (258,000)."
If I remember correctly MLS got a 230K-249K rating on ESPN2 this year.
So if the NBA is dying then the WNBA is in better shape to replace it.
Seriously though, why don't we ask some Seattle people what they would rather have right now...
Seattle does have a WNBA team, so they have both.
Ask LA people; Lakers or Galaxy?
Chivas or Clippers
Chicago, FIRE or Bulls
NY RedBulls or knicks
Boston Celtics or Revolution
RSL Jazz or Real
Portland Timbers or Blazers (this one may be close)
Maveriks or Burn
Houston Rockets or whatever they are called.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
City wide polling will get a result favorable to the NBA teams in most of cities with MLS and NBA (shit even NHL teams would pol higher than MLS).
Those teams have been around longer too, don't forget that. And while the NBA is talking contraction, MLS is expanding.. even in this horrible economy! Besides, generals don't take orders from foot soldiers.
You are like Fox news, you deal in opinion not in facts.
In the past 15 years what league has contracted more teams? MLS or the NBA?
The NBA has moved more teams.
BTW the Lingerie Football League has expanded a lot this past year, maybe they are the best up and coming league in the USA.
We are talking the current state of affairs, not 15 years ago. The fact is, that the NBA has reached the zenith of its talent pool, whereas MLS will never, ever, ever, ever, have that problem thanks to soccer's global popularity. Now if only the right people were running the league, we could finish off those greedy bastards once and for all.
Except that after the lockout the NBA has been having all time high ratings.
Ha basketball. Now how about we talk about real sports now? Lol
The way both of those teams are playing, I'll take a WNBA team.
Sixers or Union? The Union outdraw the Sixers!
Which is sad because PPL holds less then the Center and we still out draw them by a few thousand
Is the union more popular than the sixers in Philly or the area?
Don't know if they're more popular yet but we're working our way towards it. They've out drew the Sixers in attendance both of there years by a landslide though.
Average attendance I assume, that is good, I also assume that sixers’ tickets are relatively cheap compared to other NBA teams.
Yea that's based on there average attendance over the past couple of years. I wouldn't doubt there tickets are on the lower end of the price spectrum. The Sixers haven't been relevant for almost a decade.
The Sixers slashed their ticket prices this year.
The Sixers have been terrible for about a decade now. It looks like they've finally put a good team together this year and will compete in the playoffs. Rumors of the death of the NBA in the Philadelphia market have been greatly exaggerated.
Seattle could be getting an NBA team and an NHL team very soon.
Big NBA fan, it's the only sport besides soccer I can actually watch. But I've told my kids, if it ever comes down to watching the Lakers or the Galaxy..... GIMME THE GALAXY!!!!!!
Now that WPS is dying, the WNBA should fill the void.
Big Soccer newbie here. Anyhow, the NBA is not dying. IF anything its going thru a resurgence of sorts. I do prefer the MLS to the NBA but im sure 99% of the U.S does not feel the same way.
We are the 1%! (who think running back and forth on 10 yards of wood and not playing any basketball and spending the last 15 seconds of game time, 45 minutes or real team, watching intentional fouls and free throws isn't worth our time)
